This video right here is Mitch McConnell’s first ad of the new campaign year, and Mitch McConnell, who does not say a word in the ad, would like you to know that Kentucky’s junior Senator, Rand Paul, thinks he’s the bees knees. Yes, this appears to be our second toe-sucking story of the day.

It would be so exciting to live in a country where “Obamacare Medical Codes Confirm: Execution by Beheading To Be Implemented in America”, but PolitiFact says no, we cannot live there because there is a fire on its pants. Why is PolitiFact so mean to our childlike sense of wonder and our precious need to […]

You know who is a tough guy? Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is a tough guy, and you know this is true, because in a conference call with Karl Rove and other RINOs, he said why, why, he’s agonna stand up to all them teabullies like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee and punch em POW! […]

Did you tune into C-SPAN2 this AM to watch an epic rap battle between Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell, two of the best rhetoricians the Senate has ever produced? Of course you did! Except the whole time you were just whisperyelling at your computer “do it, Harry. Do. It. DO IT AND DROP THE NUCLEAR […]

How many pixels had to die so Kentucky Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes could accuse Mitch McConnell of CGI arson? And isn’t that really Darrell Issa’s thing anyway? (Yes.) Anyway, here is Lundergan Grimes being very MEAN to poor sad old Mitch McConnell, or at least her male narrator is so she doesn’t have to […]

On this momentous occasion of the worst possible thing not happening, let’s not concern ourselves overmuch with winners (Democrats, America) and losers (the Tea Party, rank idiocy). Instead, let’s celebrate. Government by extortion has been rejected. A global financial panic has been averted, the United States retains its role as an economic leader, and the […]

Kentucky Democrats can say goodbye to any hope of ousting Mitch McConnell, now that the state’s chapter of College Republicans have posted this shocking video of Kentucky Secretary of State and senatorial candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes being picked up at the airport by her husband. The video shows her sitting in the back seat of […]

Matt Bevin seems like a real nice guy. A graduate of MIT – except that he isn’t but whatev, that’s just, like, semantics, man — he is challenging Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell from the teabag wing of the Republican Party because he thinks McConnell is a giant vagina of “empty rhetoric” for not already shutting down […]

Senator Mitch McConnell’s reelection campaign is trying the old “Sure, I care about ladies and their dumb concerns” strategy, even if it has to fib shade the truth just a little bit: A press packet that McConnell’s spokeswoman distributed to reporters at a Friday event titled “Women For Team Mitch” features testimonials from Kentucky women. […]

Wowsers, wonkadoodlers, we have a bona-fide catfight on our hands in Kentucky. Claws are coming out, and before long, we imagine that there will be hair-pulling, eye-gouging, and possibly bitch-slaps, all with words, of course. The primary battle between ninja-turtle-reject Sen. Mitch McConnell and Tea Party challenger Matt Bevin is quickly going from nasty to […]

Here’s Mitch McConnell’s new campaign ad. Built on footage from the chelonian senator’s recent appearance at a Kentucky political fest that is really actually genuinely called “Fancy Farm,” it’s pretty much an epic of attempted turd-polishing. As New Republic’s Alec MacGinnis says, it “manages to make McConnell’s turn at Fancy Farm out to be as […]

On Thursday, a tape surfaced of Mitch McConnell’s reelection campaign manager describing his job as an unpleasant way to mark time until he can help Rand Paul run for President. Jesse Benton, who managed Paul’s 2010 Senate campaign, was recorded in January by conservative activist Dennis Fusaro, and said “Between you and me, I’m sorta […]

Matthew Bevin, a “Louisville millionaire and tea party favorite,” announced yesterday that he will pursue a primary challenge against Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Galapagos). While Bevins is a complete unknown who has never run for office before, McConnell may nonetheless be in for a fight because there is bipartisan agreement that Mitch McConnell is awful and […]

Harry Reid, if you end the filibuster — or even limit its use such that executive appointments can be a thing again — you will henceforth be known as The Stormin’ Mormon, by us and whoever wants to join us, unless or until we think of something better. So do it! Don’t just talk about […]

Are you guys all sad that Obamacare is dead dead dead? Your precious Kenyan Muslin Messiah has failed you like imaginary President4Life Palin told you he would! How is Bamz fucking up today? By bowing to the pressure of whinging from businesses with 51 or more employees who explained that if they had to give […]
