Just last month, supporters of Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe dropped a bomb that turned out to be a dud. A poorly composited mock-up of opponent “Ken Cuccinelli’s Virgina,” in which Muslim-looking terrorists run around airports firing missile launchers at will, was branded both racist and downright stupid.
As lame as that stunt was, it was topped today when a Ken Cuccinelli impersonator dropped by the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center. The gag’s sponsor, NextGen Climate Action, probably should have spent a few extra bucks, as the “look-alike’s” glued-on prosthetics immediately caught the attention of aquarium security. Police escorted the fake Cuccinelli off the premises.
