Cuccinelli Running Mate’s Epic Watermelon-Smashing Campaign Ad
E.W. Jackson, the Virginia GOP’s newly minted nominee for Lt. Governor, is not a subtle guy. His extreme rhetoric and views, which we’ve been covering for years, will come as a shock to most Virginians. So will his Tea Party antics. In that sense, Ken Cuccinelli couldn’t have found a better running mate.
In this campaign ad from last year — when Jackson lost badly to George Allen in the GOP Senate primary – Jackson is seen wielding an axe to chop melons representing the federal budget, unemployment and Obamacare. Jackson says that Obama wants to use “a scalpel to cut the federal budget” while he believes “we need to use an axe.” Watch:
Ah, yes. “Bold, decisive leadership.” That’s exactly what comes to mind when watching the ad. Incidentally, the axe was a recurring theme, as seen here:
Fans of the 1980s watermelon-smashing comedian Gallagher may rejoice, but Virginians need to understand that Jackson isn’t just a sideshow – he’s a real threat. Ken Cuccinelli and Jackson are favored to win if voters don’t turn out this November like they did in 2012.
