Ken Cuccinelli, Gadsen Man

My latest piece looks at the views of Virginia's Attorney General, and even-odds next governor, Ken Cuccinelli. He's published a book about his fitfully successful lawsuits against the feds, and Democrats have already scandalized the parts about the welfare state, comparing them to Mitt Romney's "47 percent" tape. But Cuccinelli is a smarter politician than Romney—and much more messianic.
