1200 people gathered in Louisville yesterday to be fooled into believing that a man who sexually violated his 20 year old intern and disgraced the Oval office was worthy of their time. And what is worse, it appears that they were conned into giving money to Obama's next "reliable vote" by the cad.
Bill Clinton helped Alison Grimes rake together what in the final analysis could be just short of a million dollars, according to one democratic insider. In addition, Clinton convinced the assembled "marks" that Alison has all the momentum in this race.
As time goes on the entire campaign of both Grimes and Matt Bevin boils down to a hatred of Mitch McConnell. And for what?
He was hired to do a job, a specific job, and that was to serve as a check on the runaway liberal agenda, see that Kentucky was front and center when it came time for federal budget consideration and to enhance the image of a state which everywhere else in the nation is considered to be home to a bunch of corrupt backwoods politicians, barefoot hillbillies and black faced coal miners living in shacks on stilts in muddy snake infested mountains.
And McConnell has achieved everything we sent him to Washington to do, and more.
He is now the most prominent and powerful republican in our Commonwealth's history. He has continued to see that Kentucky is a receiving state, that is we get back from Washington more money than we send there in taxes.
He has studied and mastered the rules of political engagement using them to advance the interests of Kentucky and stem the bleeding which would occur at the hands of an unchecked liberal president.
He voted the way Kentucky wanted him to vote until in the most recent days people started saying "No more spending." In all the years he has been in office voters clearly wanted money for roads, bridges, factories, schools, universities and other government programs that helped the people of Kentucky. The pop culture trend to despise those who spend federal money is a sea change from the world of just a few years ago. To hate Mitch now for doing what we asked him to do then is just plain ignorant.
And clearly his class and calm demeanor has helped the image of Kentucky around the world. The kind of snake handling, back slapping, tobacco spitting hick that most of the people of this country envision when they hear of Kentucky politicians dissolves when the success of Mitch McConnell is mentioned as a real life example in contrast to the fictional images they carry in their heads.
So, for all you who were fooled in Louisville to follow the lead of man who dishonored our country, cheated on his wife in public office, was impeached by Congress, disbarred as an attorney and has been accused of rape like conduct by many women, admit to your debauchery.
And to you republicans out there who still think that Mitch has to go because ......well......he voted for spending, put down the bong and back away. We sent him there and told him what we wanted. He delivered what we wanted. The fact that you now want something else doesn't support your argument that he has to go.
In fact, if you were honest about it, looking for example at his support for the hemp initiative and other measures supported by Rand Paul, it looks like Mitch is more than willing to listen to what you want and to use his superior skills to deliver it to you, something Bevin could never offer.
And to the rest of you conservatives who think that somehow not supporting Mitch shows how truly conservative you are, consider this, once again.
Michelle Obama took the stage at 12:42 p.m. inside a softly lit ballroom at the Sheraton Hotel in Midtown Manhattan for a women-themed fund-raiser benefitting the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
The ballroom had about 25 tables, with several female senators and three Senate candidates in attendance. Candidates included Michelle Nunn in Georgia, Alison Lundergan Grimes in Kentucky and Natalie Tennant in West Virginia.
Obama spoke about the importance of electing a Congress to support her husband, alluded to the government shutdown, and invoked the narrow margin in the Senate to encourage the crowd to "max out."
"And let's not forget about that common-sense gun legislation, that so many of us feel so strongly about. Sadly as you know, that bill failed. Anyone know by how many votes? It failed by just six votes in the Senate. Six. So make no mistake about it: the midterm elections, they matter. They matter."
Obama said there was something the crowd could do to make a "huge difference."
"And it's simple, you can write a big ol' fat check," she said. [Capitol New York]
Read that over and over to everyone who will listen.
Michelle Obama has singled out Alison Lundergan Grimes as a reliable vote for Barack Obama's agenda, including gun legislation.
It's just what our former adulterer in chief told people in Louisville. "Follow me. Write a check so Alison can help Obama."
Don't be fooled by disgusting Bill Clinton who left semen on a young female employees dress. And don't be fooled by his "Scarlet Letter Tour".
What he is up to is helping Obama get more votes in Congress and removing the most effective check on that runaway power Kentucky has ever sent to Washington DC.
I ain't fooled, are you?
