Bob McDonnell: The Predictable Media Assault Begins

The left is so predictable about things like this.  From the Washington Post:

At age 34, two years before his first election and two decades before he would run for governor of Virginia, Robert F. McDonnell submitted a master’s thesis to the evangelical school he was attending in Virginia Beach in which he described working women and feminists as “detrimental” to the family. He said government policy should favor married couples over “cohabitators, homosexuals or fornicators.” He described as “illogical” a 1972 Supreme Court decision legalizing the use of contraception by unmarried couples.

I knew this was coming.  From this piece last November:

Bob McDonnell: He’s a great guy (he’s the only one of the group I’ve actually met,) but no Ivy Leaguer.  If the MSM finds out he went to Regent (his sister Maureen was advancement director there,) they will trash him, and the DC suburbs will abandon him faster than they did John McCain.

My piece concerned a new Republican field for the 2012 Presidential race.  But, with McDonnell running for governor, they couldn’t wait.

But now the interesting question: will the DC suburbs abandon him on this account?   And will it make enough of a difference if they do?  That abandonment looked like a given after Barack Obama swept them last November, but ten months is an eternity in American politics.

HT to the Washington Examiner for this.
