This is the problem with the Angry White Men that seems to form the core of everything the GOP does.  They think if they make something "edgy" - having no idea what is edgy- they can attract young people.  The best this can do is increase Grime's name recognition.

I mean, I'd never heard the name "Lundergan" before and wouldn't have considered it especially poetic, but with a decent beat it comes off nicely.

Simpsons episode with Frank "Grimey" Grimes


Which is probably one of the greatest episodes of TV ever.  It's an excellent metaphor for the decline of rust-belt America, even aside from the Grimes story line -- if you recall, that was the same episode where Bart bought an abandoned factory at a tax seizures auction and made it his playground, chucking bits of rusted tools around just for the hell of it.  And later in the episode, it had this great exchange after Bart found the factory had collapsed:

Bart: Milhouse, how could you let this happen? You were supposed to be the night watchman.
Milhouse: I was watching. I saw the whole thing. First it started falling over, then it fell over.

I doubt it was intended as such, but after the financial calamity in 2008 it sums up the failure of the regulators pretty succinctly.

McConnell's probably gonna win.

Despite having defeating Obama as his number one goal, instead of jobs, instead of everything else that might improve the country, because the people that support him tie defeating Obama to getting more jobs, lowering taxes, and keeping the country from winning the war.

The only thing that will defeat him, maybe, disgustingly, is the fact he voted yes on the Senate immigration bill.

2013-07-03 11:42:52 AM
I hope Mitch is held accountable for sitting his fellow Republicans down and stating our number 1 goal is to make sure Obama is a one-term president, at that point they abdicated their jobs as working for their constituency. Unemployment rages in his state and he has done nothing but block initiatives.

Let me double check, cause I swear he was a "Yes" vote.

Well I'll be damned, I misread the pissing and moaning that he had not stood in the way of bringing it to a vote as a yes vote for immigration.

Her supporters and friends were gathered for a meeting Monday in Frankfort, eager to hear her answer to this pressing question: Would she challenge Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell? But when Alison Lundergan Grimes entered the room, the Kentucky secretary of state did something somewhat unusual: She turned the question around to them. Should she run?
According to people in attendance, Grimes spoke sparingly as a number of attendees stood up to voice their opinions, almost like a town hall meeting. While a majority of those who spoke up strongly urged her to run, others cautioned the 34-year-old to sit this one out - and spare her political capital for another campaign, perhaps for governor in 2015. And some made clear that Kentucky Democrats were different breeds than ones in Washington.



Holy crap. A politician that actually listens to her constituents and supporters.  Exactly what Americans need.


No way they'll ever be smart enough to elect her. Most of us prefer to be lied to.
