So this is quite something, isn’t it? He’s not even a real Libertarian drawing votes away from a more libertarian conservative (as Charles C.W. Cooke finds Cuccinelli to be); he’s simply a flat-out big-spending, big-government, abortion-absolutist progressive, and yet still he’s drawing votes away.
I guess this is why Ron Paul is intervening — to let actual Libertarians know that the nominal Libertarian in the race is not libertarian at all, and that the conservative candidate actually is libertarian.
I strongly suspect that more than a few “libertarian” candidates are actually libertine candidates funded by the left as astroturf efforts to split conservative votes.
