Virginia Attorney General Involved in Coverup!


The “Great Seal” of the Commonwealth of Virginia depicts the Roman goddess Virtus standing over the defeated Tyranny and has been in use since 1776. Virtus is holding a spear and a sheathed sword, and the garb she is wearing exposes her left breast. (An earlier rendition of the seal traced back to Thomas Jefferson shows the goddess wearing even less clothing.) However, far-right Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli (R) is now tinkering with the historic seal:

    The seal depicts the Roman goddess Virtus, or virtue, wearing a blue tunic draped over one shoulder, her left breast exposed. But on the new lapel pins Cuccinelli recently handed out to his staff, Virtus’ bosom is covered by an armored breastplate.

Why stop there? Replace the boob with a boob you probably like, Ken. John Ashcroft will feel very at home all covered up. And don’t stop there. Sic semper tyrannis (Thus always to tyrants)? Seriously? That’s way too wussy. I suggest Stamus contra malum: We fight against the evil. C’mon you teabaggers love talkin’ about fightin’ evil! And who better to personify the victim of John Ashcroft’s asswhuppin’ than Dr. Evil himself?

    When the new design came up at a staff meeting, workers in attendance said Cuccinelli joked that it converts a risqué image into a PG one.

Cuccinelli’s spokesman said that the pins were paid for by funds from the attorney general’s political action committee. In 2002, Bush attorney general John Ashcroft became the subject of national ridicule when he “spent $8,000 on blue drapes” to cover two nude statues at the Justice Department. An unscientific poll on the website of the Virginian-Pilot finds that 96 percent of the more than 4,000 people who have taken the survey think Cuccinelli’s decision was a “bad idea.”

So you think that was a bad idea, Virginians? What do you think about your idea about making this clown your Attorney General? If Ken wants to cover up boobs, maybe he should throw a sheet over himself. Not only will that be covering up an offensive boob, but it’s the perfect outfit for Confederate History Month.

Tip of the hat to our very own Raisinette Historian/Archivist/Statistician, Jerry Melton, for letting me know about this story.

  1. writechic

    Stamus Contra Malum. That must be Latin for “No showing your titties”? 😆

  2. you have to wonder what kind of milk Ashcroft and Cuccinelli were fed as kids

    surely not breast fed

  3. I knew you could do it Nonnie! Laughing outloud has broken my myopic funk from reading the Women of Joy speech a while ago. (I think she’s working up to a Strength through Joy one) That jackass AG is filing all kinds of lawsuits over HCR and now wants to “disprove” science on climate change and make the university profs. pay back the research money with fines. And my braindead gov. is on the stupid bandwagon with his “act of god” bit to go with the Profitess saying we need to hold big oil in the highest respect. But that bare breast trumps all. We know from the Janet Jackson incident that the left one is always the evil one. Dicks against Evil sounds right. Poor Scot Evil is now an orphan? Oh no, he has that horrible German woman for a mommy……Thanx for the shout out, I serve at your pleasure.

    • yay!!! glad you liked it and so glad it helped you find your way out of your funk. i was worried, because i made a complete seal last night, but about 15 minutes before i was going to post, i looked at it, and i hated it. dr. evil’s left hand was on backwards, i didn’t like the expression on his face, and ashcroft’s arm and feet looked blurry. so, i rushed and found new parts and stuck them on in a big hurry. i was hoping nobody would notice a huge mistake that i would have to embarrassed about. 😳

      raisinettes always get a mention when they give me an idea, and i was very pleased to tip my hat to the hardest working raisinette here. 😉

      p.s. princess sarah is not the brightest bulb, so she might have been thinking it was a commercial for joy dishwashing liquid.
