Cuccinelli's Fashion Statement

Virginia's headline-making attorney general is back on the job, proactively protecting us from threats to our liberty, virtue ... and, er, so forth. The Pilot Online has the story.

Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli apparently isn’t fond of wardrobe malfunctions, even when Virginia’s state seal is involved.

But on the new lapel pins Cuccinelli recently handed out to his staff, Virtus’ bosom is covered by an armored breastplate.

As Larry Sabato has pointed out, Cuccinelli knows perfectly well this stunt is going to get him back on MSNBC, et al. Since we've already seen what happened to Ashcroft, with his infamous blue drapes of decency, we know the headline writers are all atwitter over the potential for puns with this silly business. In sports, Cuccinelli is what we used to call a showboat.

Update: Another article with a poll and many comments -- here.
