Good enough for me, got my vote.

I find something hilariously and sadly ironic in this.  The Turtle - one of the champions of the get-rid-of-wasteful-spending party, is spending vast sums of money (and committing potentially criminal acts) to defeat a string of political opponents who aren't even running.

And subby?  What's so wrong with a politician whose best friend is Homer Simpson?  He's the Webster's definition of 'someone you can have a Duff with'.

Actually, Homer's spot in the dictionary is more fitting of Mitch, the high-dollar call girl from Kentucky.

The fact that they are blaming this yet to be named candidate for a war on coal is completely moronic. The war on coal is being fought by the free market and natural gas.

There's a war on coal?
 
2013-06-25 09:13:00 AM  
Grimes, I like her.

Mitch McConnell is Reagan's "Welfare Queen."

Yep.  The 19th century fuel is being replaced by a 21st century one.  Kentucky is getting hit extremely hard, because the politicians more or less sold the state to the coal companies a century ago.  In the few years that are left, the choice is to act now to try to diversify the economy or double down on a resource that will soon be essentially worthless.  You'll never guess which way 90% of the state seems to be leaning.

He should start calling her Lori.

Considering McConnell can't walk to his car without tripping over a health care lobbyist's dick, his campaign is hardly one to call anyone a cheerleader.

that bosnian sniper: Considering McConnell can't walk to his car without tripping over a health care lobbyist's dick, his campaign is hardly one to call anyone a cheerleader.


Just one kind of lobbyist? Please. This guy basically said nearly a decade ago that all his bribes...ahem, sorry, that's "campaign contributions"...count as free speech. In a non-Kentucky state, he couldn't get a job as a gimp. Fortunately, he found one state so dumb it's filled with Kentuckians.

There's your ad, Alison:

"Mitch McConnell has accused Alison Lundergan Grimes of being friends with Homer Simpson. But, if Mitch McConnell paid attention, he'd know that Frank Grimes hated Homer Simpson with his dying breath. If Mitch McConnell doesn't understand Springfield...HOW CAN HE UNDERSTAND KENTUCKY?"

"I'm Alison Lundergan Grimes, that's my name, that name again is Alison Lundergan Grimes, and I approve this message."

I think the state of Kentucky would be well served by an incredibly weird/talented Canadian lady for a senator. That lisp would make CSPAN so much better.

Frank...Grimes...
Ohhh yeah, how is old Grimey?
