Back in 2009, the GOP nominee for governor, Ken Cuccinelli, ran for state attorney general against Steve Shannon. Cuccinelli scored big points in a debate by stumping Shannon with a remarkably basic question: “How many divisions are there in the attorney general’s office? Please name each one and briefly explain what each one does.”
Shannon filibustered . . . and filibustered . . . and filibustered. He later dismissed it as “an arcane question, focusing on the bureaucracy.”
Free advice: If you’re running against Ken Cuccinelli, do your homework.
