A new nickname for Bob McDonnell

Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell used to have an image as a hardcore right winger who was squeaky clean when it came to ethics. The stock line on him was that he was an honest conservative. I never bought the stock line, but I did like his old nickname, Governor Ultrasound. He earned that one by proposing an earlier edition of the anti-choice laws so popular in the demented laboratories of democracyin recent days.

McDonnell’s image as an “honest” politician has taken a lot of hits recently. He looks more and more like a petty grifter who wants someone-anyone-else to pay his expenses. Sometimes it’s the Virginia taxpayers and sometimes it’s his corporate boosters, but McDonnell seems averse to paying for anything out of pocket.He is, however, still squeaky clean in one sense:

The McDonnells have billed the state for body wash, sunscreen, dog
vitamins and a digestive system “detox cleanse,” the records show.

No wonder he’s in deep shit and sinking fast. There you have it ladies and germs, allow me to introduce Governor Enema.

    It would explain why he didn’t think sticking things into people was such a bad idea.

    He isn’t exactly corrupt. He just thinks he’s entitled, which is worse.

    @DanielP; He’s at least borderline corrupt. The stuff about the “supporter” who paid for much of his daughter’s wedding is more than a little disturbing.
