Rob Ford, drunk (is that redundant?), swearing in Jamaican patois.
Jennifer Rubin, one year ago:
McDonnell’s approval rating is already one of the highest in the country, and an impressive final year will cement his legacy as a constructive, accomplished conservative governor. He’s often overlooked as a contender for 2016, in part because he’ll be out of a job at the end of 2013. That said, he’s popular with nearly every contingent within the GOP (he’s making a name for himself among hawks by speaking out against the sequester) while keeping his purple state approval ratings high. While lawmakers aspiring for the presidency are creating a trail of hard votes and the personas of Washington insiders, McDonnell is cementing himself as a can-do outsider. If he can manage to remain visible, he will be a force to be reckoned with should he decide to run for president.
So for all that, well done, Governor.
As we know, McDonnell and his wife were just indicted for taking $165K in plane rides, money, clothes and other trinkets from a supporter, hosting a launch party for that supporter’s snake oil remedy in the governor’s mansion, and for trying to evade stock disclosure rules.
