Surprising no one at all who has paid attention.

If he and Harry Reid were to retire, the world would be a better place.

I think you mean the Russians in 1812, subby. The Russians didn't do scorched earth in WWII, at least not nearly as much.

They didn't have to:  Communism had pretty much scorched it for them already.

With Judd deciding not to run, the seat is as good as his.

McConnell would win 58-42 over Grimes, KY is trending red on a national/Congressional level. A credit L candidate might rock the boat though.

credible L(ibertarian) I meant to say.

I know. It's frightening when a politician tries to win reelection by campaigning and running ads.

Ah too bad. I was looking forward to seeing McTurtle getting hamstrung by two, female Democratic candidates.

"People in Kentucky are not big fans of the bank bailouts," said Rep. Thomas Massie, a freshman tea party favorite from Northern Kentucky, pointing to the issue as a vulnerability for McConnell. "They still remember."

Massie is one of the conservatives being suggested as a possible primary challenger, along with businessman Matthew Bevin and the defeated 2011 GOP candidate for state auditor, John Kemper, but no one has yet decided to take the plunge.


Now this I am hoping to watch. A derper challenging the turtle.

Almost two years before the election, to attack someone before she says she'll run?

The only thing I want to read about Mitch McConnell is a highly apologetic suicide note.

If McConnell gets teabagged, that opens up the game. Grimes could win that one especially if the Teahaddist starts talking about rape or other third rail issues.

Ashley never stood a chance.
But it was interesting to see how quickly Yrtle went into flame-thrower mode when the idea of her running went public.

I've met Massie a few times. He's a small-minded, smarmy, glad-handing sack of shiat. In other words: Perfect for the GOP.

They must have "gotten to" Ashley to get her to drop out.
"Here's what it's going to be like if you think you are going to come in here and change our game, Little Missy."

There are no heroes any more.
And if there were, they would be quickly swept under the rug by means of a damning news article that insinuates the hero as being anything else but honorable.
The Corporate way.
