NickelP: i cant wait to vote against that asshole
RexTalionis: I kind of wish that the Great Giani Sisters ripped off Mario Brothers a little more to include the Koopa Troopers, because that would fit so much better.[home.arcor.de image 614x410]
BMFPitt: Accepting the invitation from countless Washington liberals to become President Obama's Kentucky candidate was a courageous decision by Alison Lundergan Grimes, and I look forward to a respectful exchange of ideas.What, no endorsement from al Qaeda?

Wellon Dowd: While she is sufficiently pleasing to the eye, she's no Ashley Judd.[i.imgur.com image 433x650]
Frozboz: And already in the Louisville market we're seeing nightly local commercials comparing her to Obama (accompanied by scary music and photoshopped pics) and furthering his agenda.
Dimensio: Wellon Dowd: While she is sufficiently pleasing to the eye, she's no Ashley Judd.[i.imgur.com image 433x650]That image will derail any chance that she could have of winning in Kentucky. Encouraging literacy is not popular in the state.
EyeballKid: OK, Kentuckians, here we go. She's proven herself to give a damn about the state of Kentucky, rather than her clout on cable news shows. She doesn't have a single scandal, conflict of interest, et al. to her name. She doesn't have any sort of baggage, like a cable news clip where she says taking bribes is free speech or a book by a former president stating she wanted troops to brought home from Iraq for the 2006 elections. So, let's see if you're smart enough to get rid of Mitch McConnell this time. I wish I could say I have faith in you.

ADubs86: Jefferson, Fayette and Kenton county, you don't have to worry about. It's the rest of the derp counties in our state that are either taking it up the ass from big coal, or equate Dems with Satan so vote Republican because Jayeezus that will pretty much guarantee another McConnell win.
Triple Oak: hopefully enough people are encouraged to use their brains for something.

Triple Oak: I would laugh if Repubs got some seats in the 2014 elections but McConnell was not one of them. These congressional weasels are amazing at somehow keeping power, hopefully enough people are encouraged to use their brains for something.

DarwiOdrade: It's Kentucky. McConnell's in more danger from primary challenger than a Democratic challenger in the actual election.
jedihirsch: Oh please. McConnell is enjoying a pretty good approval rating plus the fact that incumbents with high approval ratings have over a 95% re-election rate and one with bad approval rating still pull over 80% re-election rates (the system favors incumbent). And while Slate says he's unpopular, the Nate Silver article they link to says otherwise and thinks McConnell will winAlso the poll that found that 34% would vote against him no matter what, in intro polysci they teach that the average incumbent has a 20-40% vote against in polling numbers, so this is not unusual. I remember in my own district when Anthony Weiner won his last election in 2010 (a few months before the scandal broke) he had a 40% would vote against him no matter what and only 4% vote for him no matter what in a poll 7 months before the election. When it came down to election day he pulled in 58% and his opponent pulled in 42%. And there are about 70-100 stories like this every congressional election year (not including local versions). When it comes down to it most people vote for the incumbent (the challenger is the one with work to do to get in) and only the against crowd really doesn't....unless a scandal or a major screw-up happens.Whomever wrote this at slate is not only politically ignorant but stupid
