Gov. Bob McDonnell (R), who up until day-before-yesterday said he was just itching to see all those women spread their legs to state-mandated probing, is now signaling that maybe it was some governor-impersonator who said he would sign any vaginal-poking-around law that the General Assembly cared to put on his desk.
Gov. McDonnell's ringing endorsement has changed to something resembling under-cooked pabulum:
"Our position is: If the General Assembly passes this bill the governor will review it, in its final form, at that time,” McDonnell spokesman Tucker Martin said in a statement.
Seems like the Republican war on women, when faced with actual resistance, gets a whole lot less "manly."
