Republican Attorney General: Oral And Anal Sex Should Be ‘Crimes Against Nature’ In Virginia

So now "Smaller Government" means "small enough to fit into your bedroom"? What are your thoughts on this? Its obviously a biased article but still...

Because "small government" means "small enough to fit in your bedroom."

Because “small government” means “small enough to fit in your bedroom.”

If you don’t know who Ken Cuccinelli is by now, you really REALLY should. He’s the nice gentleman who has been pushing far right extremist laws in Virginia. Attorney General Cuccinelli worked with Governor Ultrasound Bob McDonnell to pass anti-abortion “trap laws” that would shut down almost every clinic that offered abortion services and fully endorsed forcing women seeking an abortion to have a transvaginal probe inserted against their will.

Hooray small government!

And now Ken Cuccinelli is running for Governor this year as Gov. Vaginal Probe McDonnell hits his term limit. But before he leaves his current job, he still has some things he needs to take care of; like, for instance, banning sodomy and oral sex again.

Via Washington Blade:

Virginia Attorney General Kenneth Cuccinelli has filed a petition with the 4th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in Richmond asking the full 15-judge court to reconsider a decision by a three-judge panel last month that overturned the state’s sodomy law.

The three-judge panel ruled 2-1 on March 12 that a section of Virginia’s “Crimes Against Nature” statute that outlaws sodomy between consenting adults, gay or straight, is unconstitutional based on a U.S. Supreme Court decision in 2003 known as Lawrence v. Texas.

It’s unclear exactly why Cuccinelli has taken this course of action. It IS possible that he wants to overturn it through legislation so it can’t be “reconstitutionalized” (not a real word) at a later date. There’s also a possibility that Dick Cheney will be appointed Emperor of the United States but I wouldn’t want to bet on it.

If that were the case, however, I would actually support this move. President Obama did much the same thing with Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. He could have suspended it with an executive order but a future president could just as easily reinstate it. Better to have it completely removed from the books by Congress. In fact, some advocates would still prefer the law to be removed from Virginia’s law books even though it’s already been declared unconstitutional:

“Like most people, we think the court made the right decision,” said James Parrish, executive director of the LGBT advocacy group Equality Virginia.

“We think what needs to happen is the General Assembly needs to remove the current sodomy law that has been declared unconstitutional,” he said.

When contacted by the Blade, Cuccinelli’s office responded that he would release a statement on Wednesday clarifying his reason for wasting spending taxpayer dollars to revisit a settled issue. Considering Ken Cuccinelli’s tendency to embrace extremist moralizing, it’s not unreasonable to suspect that he’s more interested in pandering to the GOP’s fanatically social conservative base than he is getting the government out of people’s bedrooms. After all, he’s perfectly comfortable shoving it up a woman’s vagina, why should homosexuals be spared the insulting and degrading attacks of Cuccinelli’s Christian Crusade?

 Sexy If its unladylike, fattening or fun, I'm in!

As a throw back to another post, this is why people are running from the Republican party.  It isn't Fox News, it's crap like this.

Here we go again, having them try to control personal issues by trying to make them political.
