(Talking Points Memo)   The GOP Senate primary race in Kentucky just a new level of nastiness as McConnell's opponent runs a campaign ad that depicts McConnell wearing a Duke basketball jersey. Now Look, calling a man names is one thing, but suggesting he's a DUKE fan?   (talkingpointsmemo.com) divider line 30

If somebody did that to me, I think I'd have to kill myself out of shame.

Well, he DOES suck

He strikes me as more of a Maryland fan.

Hey, he's the one who put a clip of the Duke basketball team in his farking campaign ad.

This.

I think he's using Martha Coakley's campaign manager.

I think a Duke jersey is plenty appropriate for him.

Apparently his opponent's middle name is Bailout, judging from lack of quotes.

Odd last name.

As a Cardinals fan who hates McConnell, let me admit and acknowledge that he is actually a huge Louisville fan, especially football. He will cancel meetings due to "scheduling conflicts" just to be able to watch or attend Louisville games.  And Louisville fans hate Duke almost as much as Kentucky fans.

Go Cards!

Not just a Duke jersey, but a Laettner jersey.

As much as I dislike McConnell, have some decency, man.

Yeah.  This is funny but kind of a low blow in politics. Aside from that, I'm not sure what this really does for Bevin's campaign. It makes him look like a big a-hole if people don't get the joke.

Indeed. I've heard of a post turtle before, but Mitch has made himself a tee-ball turtle with that screw up.

Cagey B: He strikes me as more of a Maryland fan.


He shoots, he scores! Though I don't think Mitch will be changing parties next season.

Howodd. Howodd Bensonmum.

As sacrosanct as college basketball is in Kentucky, I am amused by this because Mitch will probably still get reelected.

cretinbob: At least it wasn't this


Holy crap on a pancake.

And usally we have a follow up thread where the Republican establishment stands but their canidate, but this time they kinda acted like human beings

We were extremely disappointed to learn of comments made recently by candidate Jason Wisneski in reference to Senator Dave Hansen and his family," party Chairman Mark Becker

I'm offended to be associated with that turtle.

Kentucky and America will be far better off if both of these Republican douchenozzles lose and Alison Lundergan Grimes in their new Senator.

Fill his campaign offices with Volunteer flags. Invite the media.

Wow. What an asshat. Seriously, that's a pretty impressive level of pure horridness.

Rambino: Duke isn't in Kentucky?


It's just outside of Raleigh, NC, IIRC...  You watch.  My son lives around there, now.  When he graduates high school, he'll now probably want to go to Duke.
