Trailing in new poll, Cuccinelli links McAuliffe to Filner, Democratic ‘war on women’

How does it feel to be shamelessly demagogued as a crypto-misogynist based on the actions of a random, out-of-state member of your party, Terry?
Sign the Petition: Tell Terry McAuliffe to break the silence. By refusing to speak out, he is only condoning the real war on women. Sign our petition if you think it’s Democrats like Terry McAuliffe and Barack Obama who are condoning the real war on women.
The Democratic National Committee will vote on a resolution this week calling on San Diego Mayor Bob Filner to resign, ratcheting up pressure on the embattled Democrat who has been accused of sexually harassing multiple women. Sixteen women have charged Filner of acting improperly and the mayor last month acknowledged having “failed to fully respect the women who work for me and with me.” He voluntarily entered a behavioral therapy program, but has refused to step down despite widespread calls for him to leave office.
Perhaps the Party has been so slow-footed in its response to Filner’s depravity because it’s been an open secret in Democratic circles for years. Rest assured that if Filner had an (R) next to his name, the intensity of the resulting firestorm would have resulted in a party-wide exile weeks ago. And the media would still be concern-trolling about the “broader narrative.” Meanwhile, Team McAuliffe has been waging a paint-by-numbers “war on women” campaign against Cuccinelli — which is a bit rich considering the way McAuliffe has admitted to treating his own wife. I’ll leave you with a chapter of the Republican nominee’s life that Democrats have strangely overlooked:
Cuccinelli has his work cut out for him. A new Q-poll shows McAuliffe surging to a six-point lead, built almost entirely on a double-digit gender gap.
