Virginia gubernatorial candidate Bob McDonnell delivered a speech to George Washington University College Republicans last night, the G.W. Hatchet reports. McDonnell didn’t explicitly mention his recently unearthed masters thesis which denigrated working women, homosexuals, and people who have sex. But he did make a nod to his commitment to right his past statements:
My wife has convinced me when I’m elected governor we’re going to have a working mom government simplicity task force so all the smart women in Virginia can help tell me how to run Virginia,” McDonnell said. “[They will] help cut down some of that bureaucracy, I think that would be a good idea.”

When asked by a member of the media after the speech, McDonnell said he proposed that idea to his team before his thesis was brought to light.
