Her team is now saving some of its money for an all-out negative assault come the fall.

Careful Grimey, that's a bit of a live wire...

Fine by me, hope Grimes wipes the floor with McConnell.

It's been long overdue that Democrats finally take the gloves off with Republicans and beat the shiat outta them during the campaigns.  As soon as a Republican sees their own blood they run and hide because they never expect the a Democrat to come at them with a baseball bat.

God I hope she beats him.

Then afterwards she can flip him over on his back on fence post.

The script for that is to whine to the refs about the "liberal media" and the bias against Republicans and they only like her 'cause of she's a woman and if I hit back I'm beating up a girl and Democrats are the real misogyracists (plus, I heard one of them mutter something anti-Semitic once) who were the KKK and Dixiecrats and moral breakdowns and atheistic liberals teaching evolution and gay sex to toddlers and such as comma.

Because of their commitment to personal responsibility.

For all of the biatching that people do about negative campaigning, it's still prominent because it works.

People don't really remember feel-good political campaigning, but they remember Daisy, Willie Horton, and John McCain's "black baby".

Hey,
Did anyone know that there was a Simpsons character named "Grimey" once?

If negative ads didn't work they wouldn't spend money on them.

More likely it's "How dare you use my own in context words against me"

At least McConnell hasn't mentioned rape yet.

//He hasn't, has he?

I can be lazy too! Look at me! I'm a worthless Congressman, just like Mitch McConnell! Give me a committee chair! I'm peeing on the seat, give me a SuperPac! Now I'm returning to the session without washing my hands, but it doesn't matter, because I'm Mitch McConnell!

I'm sure Noonan is already busily decrying this boorish assault on our saintly conservative republic by this populist rabble-rouser.  Of course, if Grimes were polite, she'd be an "elitist."

Her Fancy Farm remarks were pretty strong.  She set up call and response where every time she said Mitch McConnell, she got the crowd to say "doesn't care."  She's no Martha Coakley.
 
2014-08-04 12:02:42 PM

Wipe the floor with that guy.

Win, lose or draw. I'ma watch the hell out of this race.

Fortunately that's the only line I can remember from that terrible commercial that did nothing but give Grimes a boost in name recognition.

Former Kentuckian here. Grimes is going to lose. Sorry y'all, we're stuck with turtle man.

Not only is she not drawing female voters as much as a female candidate running against Mitch McConnell should, she has also hired morans to run her campaign. One of her staffers is under fire for tweeting a disparaging remark about Mitch's wife's Asian heritage.

I'm surprised Grimes is putting up a fight, but she's not winning. I way in hell.

I strongly oppose President Obama's attack on Kentucky's energy industry. This Administration has taken direct aim at Kentucky's coal industry, crippling our state's largest source of domestic energy and threatening thousands of jobs. Washington Democrats and Republicans need to be realistic about what powers our nation and recognize that developing Kentucky's supplies of coal is crucial.

I think he's making a Simpsons joke. (Since Grimes/Grimey, when emulating homer simpson, grabs a live wire and dies)

It's hard to directly attack Republicans, though:

1. Their base, and sadly much of the middle, submits happily to the GOP's victimized status.
2. The national media will inevitably portray it as a sudden attack of partisanism in what has hitherto been a placid sea of peace.

That's fine with me.  I'm still gonna be an asshole about it and attack Republicans.

And don't forget this.

And for a bonus, this choice quote came from McConnell's spokesperson, Allison Moore.

"It is really pathetic that the Grimes campaign is more worried about what some intern in the basement of the NRSC is tweeting rather than talking about the real issues facing Kentucky, but I am sure we will see this call from their playbook time and time again," Moore said. "Mitch McConnell is dedicated to running on the issues and challenges Alison Grimes to do the same."

Riiiiiiiight. Because an autotune video making fun of her name shows true dedication to running on the issues.

His blank face and beady little eyes blinking nervously was the best part of the whole video.

Alison Grimes: God, I've had to work hard every day of my life, and what do I have to show for it? This briefcase, and this haircut! And what do you have to show for your lifetime of sloth and ignorance?

McConnell: What are you saying?

Heh, if you lived in any other country in the world, you'd have starved to death long ago. [...] You're a fraud. A- a total fraud. (walks away, walks back) It was nice meeting you.

to killing yourself?" (after McConnell almost drinks sulfuric acid)
