Okay, folks. Hop in your 'way-back' machines and travel with Mr. Peabody and his boy Sherman to 1969. The Commonwealth of Virginia was looking for an advertising campaign to bring in much needed tourism. They hit upon a winner: Virginia is for Lovers.
A favorite book in 1969 was Erich Segal’s Love Story. Jacqueline Susann’s The Love Machine was a best seller. Henry Mancini scored with Love Theme from "Romeo and Juliet." The Woodstock Music and Art Fair in 1969 drew more than 300,000 young people for a weekend of peace, music and mud. Given the tenor of the times, the roll-out of "Virginia is For Lovers" appealed to younger consumers who were the market of the future. And it worked.
It was so memorable that it was inducted into the Madison Avenue Advertising Walk of Fame on September 21, 2009 for the work of the George Woltz of Martin & Woltz Inc., a Richmond advertising agency. Talk about putting you on the map.
Now, flash forward to 2013 and an upcoming gubernatorial election. Native wacko, and current Attorney General, Ken Cuccinelli, single-handedly has made that saying a national joke.
How, you might ask? He's vowed, if elected to make it a crime for two consenting adults, heterosexual or homosexual, to enjoy the pleasures of oral sex. Yup, he's going to make going down not just an elevator's movement, but an illegal consensual act. Oh, and while he's at it, he's also proposing that the only, yes only, legal sexual position between two people is the missionary position. I kid you not.
I guess Ken's gotten tired of the people of Virginia yelling, "Blow me," that he's going to actually outlaw that activity.
It got the attention the other day of the ladies of The View. Here's how they reacted:
So, this is the kind of choice the people of Virginia have to make. Do they want the police in their bedrooms or do they want privacy. If you know anyone who lives in Virginia, send them this clip and remind them to vote in the next election. It's only three months down the road.
And if you think the Cooch is alone in trying to get in bed with you and between you and your spouce, think again. He's not smart enough to do this on his own. There's more "Cooches" out there. Keep your eyes open. Soon it'll be the entire GOP. They don't plan on stopping with abortion rights. They want to take away all your personal choices. Just like Ken "the Cooch" Cuccinelli.
