With Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling's announcement this week that he will not make an independent bid for governor, residents of Virginia are left to choose between Republican Ken Cuccinelli and Democrat Terry McAuliffe. Save for some Tea Party stalwarts and yellow-dog Democrats, observes A. Barton Hinkle, few will cast their ballots with unbridled joy. By campaign's end, a lot of voters may think they are choosing between Sauron and SpongeBob Squarepants.
