>> "politico." "politico." he's here.
>> if you can't trust ikea meatballs, who can you trust?
>> one more institution. our faith is shaken.
>> our faith is shaken.
>> horse meatballs at ikea . in the flesh in new york city , the editor-in-chief, they sent us the editor-in-chief.
>> that's huge.
>> take us through this fascinate i fascinating governorial race. the former chief, ken cuccinelli and the former chief, terry mcauliffe .
>> it's what you talk about, the divide in the republican party . ken is really conservative and the guy elbowed aside, bill boeing says there's a 50-50 chance he will run as independent. if he does, he will get a lot of independent support in virginia . the point of politics to talk to yourself and feel good about ideological ideological purity, what cuccinelli feel good about and saying neither of these guys are palatable, we don't want an old clinton hand and there's got to be a middle and the question is whether an independent candidacy might represent that.
>> when you say really really conservative, how conservative is he? what do you mean? what are some of his positions?
>> he's motivated by social conservati conservatism. as attorney general he got involved in this dispute in virginia where he was cracking down on scientists who disagree with his view on global warming and big compromise in virginia passing to raise revenue for transportation in the state. the governor, bob mcdonnell , thumbs down and every time he had to make a point in favor of ideologically purity he tends to do it and a darling of virginia . virginia is a purple state and voted democratic the last two times. it certainly looks like there will be an effort by democrats and possibly a third candidate to paint him out of the mainstream.
>> you know, mcdonnell, one of the most conservative governors in the state, he's been distancing himself from cucicnelli, i'm sure he will get a big applause from cpac . he cuts spending, cuts taxes and grows the economy, not welcome there, but a guy like cuccinelli, thinking about not having his youngest son get a social security number because quote that's how they track you down.
>> 2013 . i wonder what bill buckley would have said about a guy like ken cuccinelli . he threw out people infiltrate ing those infiltrating the moveme movement. not getting a social security number because quote that's how they track you down. with they black helicopters , going steal your cows, right, going to steal your cows, your sheep. any barnyard animals.
>> take your guns.
>> they're going to hold the rest -- they're going do experiment, mind control experiments on the rest of the barnyard animals that the black helicopter sees, like close encounters, they suck them up out of the black yard. the horses, what will they do with them?
>> ikea meatballs.
>> stop. the kids are up.
>> they will sell them to make ikea meatballs. this is a problem. like chris christie . he supports the stealing of livestock and black helicopters and ikea meatballs.
>> don't invite him to cpac .
>> don't invite him to cpac . how's that working for you guys.
>> john harris , good to have you here.
>>> the new england patriots sign tom brady until 2017 , when he a he's 40 years old. good deal? we'll talk
