Mitch McConnell, RINO
Posted - 1/22/2014 3:07:58 PM | show profile | flag this post
Freedomworks -- the huge moneyed network behind the TEA Party's astroturf efforts, has decided to back Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's primary challenger -- Matt Bevin.
A 50-to-1 long-shot in the Kentucky Derby probably has a better chance of winning, but it's something to see Mitch having to spend a ton of money early on. On top of that, the ads painting him as too liberal will probably still stick with the crowds at the Fancy Farm Picnic come general campaign season.

Not just RINO...
Or, at least in Mitch's first campaign commercial! He paints himself as a liberal, who supported government health care and the very liberal safety net.
Why? Blake Zeff, writing in Salon, suggests that it's because Mitch knows that voters are liberal at heart. They empathize with working people and understand that they, too, may need help:

Can you be anymore of a wingnut?
"He paints himself as a liberal, who supported government health care and the very liberal safety net.'
The cherry on the wingnut sundae? You use someone who thought Anthony Weiner could win to back your post?

You obviously didn't watch...
the commercial, cruzo.
Look at it. Then tell us why it is NOT about Mitch's support for a government health plan and safety net.

"Mitch's support for a government health plan and safety net"
If this is all you got, Mitch is sure to win re-election.

He's trailing in the polls...
against his Democratic opponent.
And he's going to be forced to spend a lot of money now that Freedomworks is hammering on him for being a "liberal."
And you haven't even watched the commercial that Mitch put out, have you. Watch it and you may have to agree that FreedomWorks has a point.
