I wrote this diary just a couple of days ago about all the drama in the Kentucky Republican Senate Primary. Despite the lovefest between Rand Paul, Trey Grayson, and Jim Bunning which will undoubtedly end with a stab in the back to Bunning from one or both, it turns out that Kentucky's Crazy Uncle and it's most hypocritical Senior Senator just flat out do not like each other.
So, without further adeu to todays installment of "Days of our Kentucky Senate Race":
In today's episode we have Mitch McConnell telling Jim Bunning that he is old (besides being nuttier than squirrell turds), and we have Jim Bunning saying that he is better off without the endorsement of a loser whose shameless brownnosing and ideological idiocy cost his party along with the Bush/Cheney cabal almost all of it's power in Washington:
U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning acknowledged Tuesday that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell told him that "I was too old and I couldn't win" a re-election battle in 2010.
Bunning, 77, went on to call McConnell a "control freak" and said he'll fare well in Kentucky without McConnell's endorsement in the GOP primary election. "If Mitch McConnell doesn't endorse me that may be the best thing that could happen to me in Kentucky," he told reporters during a weekly conference call.
As it turns out, these two fellows despite teaming up to represent Communist China very well in the last 11 yrs. just don't seem to like each other very much:
Bunning, R-Southgate, said it would be kind to call his relationship with McConnell strained. "I said no to him and he doesn't like people who say no to him," Bunning said.
I guess now we understand why McConnell hates the average working Joe in America so badly. They keep saying "no" to him. Plus, they just don't seem to work as cheap as the oppressed men, women and children of third-world countries and China. Where was all this angst while Bunning and McConnell were teaming up to outsource millions of American and Kentucky jobs to slave-labor markets? It was all love then.
Speaking of love, we have Trey Grayson and Rand Paul. They definately love them some Jim Bunning:
Both have formed exploratory committees, which allow candidates to raise and spend money. Grayson, who has said he won't run unless Bunning decides to abandon his re-election bid, was given the green light by Bunning himself.
Paul on Friday announced the formation of his committee, praising Bunning for his conservative votes on the bank bailout and saying he will not challenge him if he stays in the race.
Paul said Sunday he feels sympathy for Bunning, who he feels is getting "some mistreatment" by GOP leaders who are publicly trying to push him out.
However, that loves is not as deep seeded as ambition and they both feel they have a better chance at beating the Democrat than their most beloved "crazy uncle". This diary details why Rand Paul might actually be the one that Democrats should worry about.
So, while we enjoy watching the Soap Opera of love, hate, denial, backstabbing, hypocrisy, and sheer and complete lunacy that has become the Kentucky Republican Senate primary it is important for Democrats to stay vigilant in this race. Whomever you support in the Democratic primary, it is more important now than ever to send them some love:
