Virginia is for lovers? Not if this guy gets his way!

The man puts his mouth where??!!

Virginia attorney general and Republican gubernatorial candidate/wingnut Ken Cuccinelli is asking the 4th Circuit to reconsider a previous ruling that found a prohibition against oral sex unconstitutional. Since this has a snowball’s chance in hell of ever being reheard, guess old Ken is just performing for the right-wing fundamentalist performing monkeys who make up so much of the state’s electorate.

Either that, or he’s got a thing about germs. Go on, Ken, try it. You might like it — and your wife will, too! Via Mother Jones:

Last month, three judges on the US Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit deemed a Virginia anti-sodomy law unconstitutional. The provision, part of the state’s “Crimes Against Nature” law, has been moot since the 2003 US Supreme Court decision overruled state laws barring consensual gay sex, but Virginia has kept the prohibition on the books.

Now Virginia attorney general and Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli is asking the full 4th Circuit to reconsider the case. Cuccinelli wants the court to revive the prohibition on consensual anal and oral sex, for both gay and straight people. (The case at hand involves consensual, heterosexual oral sex.)

Here’s more from the Washington Blade:

Virginia Attorney General Kenneth Cuccinelli has filed a petition with the 4th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in Richmond asking the full 15-judge court to reconsider a decision by a three-judge panel last month that overturned the state’s sodomy law.

The three-judge panel ruled 2-1 on March 12 that a section of Virginia’s “Crimes Against Nature” statute that outlaws sodomy between consenting adults, gay or straight, is unconstitutional based on a U.S. Supreme Court decision in 2003 known as Lawrence v. Texas.

A clerk with the 4th Circuit appeals court said a representative of the Virginia Attorney General’s office filed the petition on Cuccinelli’s behalf on March 26. The petition requests what is known as an en banc hearing before the full 15 judges to reconsider the earlier ruling by the three-judge panel.

Mother Jones confirmed that Cuccinelli had filed the request with the court as well. Given that the Supreme Court has already ruled that gay sex is okay and moved on to the question of gay marriage, I wouldn’t expect his appeal to go very far.

    Do these people even HAVE sex? If so (and that is very much in doubt), what kind of sex do they have? And I’d have to see it (literally) to believe it. Call me Doubting Thomas, an apostle with whom I could always, even as a kid, relate. These people are so fearful (of women? vaginas? impotence?) they don’t even get that sex is FUN.

    I AM SO READY TO BE DONE WITH THESE DUNCES (yes, I’m yelling)!

    It is amazing. It’s like every fucking teabagger is trying to one up the last one in coming up with the most amazing bullshit idea. The US has become one humongous orgy of trolling conservatives. “Quick, while we’re still in power, let’s party like it’s 999!” (and no, I didn’t drop the 1)

    Um, any indication how they’re thinking of enforcing a ban on consensual practices? ?? I’m thinking a huge contract for a webcam company to provide the compulsory webcams? Or…? The mind reels.
