WHEEEEE Terry McAuliffe Runs For Governor!
Former DNC Chair Terry McAuliffe loved Hillary Clinton so much that when she was obviously and definitively losing in her bid for President, he helpfully appeared on many television news shows drinking rum and cracking wise about how she was a shoe-in, she'd win this thing in a walk, blah blah blah. Basically Terry McAuliffe turned Hillary's tragic downward spiral into a punchline for larfs on MSNBC. Now he will turn that same brand of trenchant political humor on himself as he launches his doomed bid for governor of the great state of Virginia, in which he has apparently lived for many years.
McAuliffe announced his candidacy in a video he sent to supporters (not us, waah). Aw, look at him, all sober and stuff! Question: If he's lived in Virginia for 20 years, why does he sound like he's from Skokie? (Answer: he grew up in Syracuse, a known hell-pit of bad accents.)
Anyway, this should be fun. He cares about "jabs," and our "ecannamy," and he'll be running against a known Moran. Terry McAuliffe will employ every former Clinton staffer alive, including Patti Solis Doyle, so his campaign will be broke by March, and then Howard Wolfson will have to start giving a lot of interviews about how much he loves The Format. Secretary of State Clinton will have all of Virginia nuked.
