Mitch McConnell Supports The Kentucky Economy By Outsourcing Campaign Work To Texas?

by: Hillbilly

Mon Apr 21, 2014 at 18:05:49 PM EDT

It seems that senator Senator Mitch McConnell would rather pay folks in Texas like Harris Media for his campaign websites and videos rather than hire talented home grown Kentuckians. Reckon that’s why they can’t tell the difference between Duke and Kentucky when it comes to basketball?

The upside to this is Harris Media will retweet Team Mitch tweets. Who said retweets weren’t expensive?

Republicans reprise Jim Crow, that dirty bird

by: By BERRY CRAIG

Sun Mar 30, 2014 at 12:33:19 PM EDT

History really doesn’t repeat itself.

But there are parallels between the 1890s and today in voter suppression laws motivated by white conservatives’ fears of growing minority strength at the ballot box.

In the 1890s, the suppressors were Democrats. Now they are Republicans.
         
When Populist James B. Weaver ran for president in 1892, he hoped his fledgling party could unite poor farmers and workers, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion or anything else.

“The interests of rural and civil labor are the same; their enemies are identical,” the Populist platform said.

Those “enemies” were rich Republican business and factory owners and bankers up North and wealthy Democrats, most of them big landowners, down South.
     
A rising tide of Populism scared Republican and Democratic powers-that-be. But the Populists especially unnerved Dixie’s white supremacist “Bourbon” Democrats.

Life Lesson For Mitch McConnell. Money Can't Buy You Love Or A Good Political Ad.

by: Hillbilly

Wed Mar 26, 2014 at 17:25:28 PM EDT

Senator Mitch McConnell is loaded with money and so is Team Mitch and it seems that Team Mitch is working very hard to use all of that money to buy love and good political ads. The problem is: Money can’t buy a constituent’s love and it can’t buy a good political ad. Both require hard work and real commitments, and that’s something Senator Mitch McConnell and Team Mitch don’t seem to understand.

What's worse than a Cardinal sin in Kentucky?

by: By BERRY CRAIG

Wed Mar 26, 2014 at 14:58:21 PM EDT

Mitch McConnell has finally done it.

Kentucky’s senior senator has been caught in a transgression worse than a Cardinal Sin in my native Bluegrass State. He’s committed a Wildcat Sin.

A shiny new campaign ad from Team Mitch pictured a purported pair of University of Kentucky Big Blue Wildcat basketball players hugging after a big win.

Hey, the timing seemed perfect: March Madness, Sweet Sixteen and all that. The beloved Big Blue is in the hunt for another national basketball championship.

To cover their guy’s bases, okay, a baseball metaphor, the Team Mitch ad crafters also inserted a University of Louisville Cardinal cager in the commercial.

Go Big Red!

Hey Mitch McConnell Here's A Photo Of Richie Farmer If You Decide to Make Another Political Ad.

by: Hillbilly

Tue Mar 25, 2014 at 22:34:22 PM EDT

Mitch we realize it’s tough putting political ads together uploading them to Youtube and then having to take them down because of real stupid mistakes like using Duke basketball players in a Kentucky political video ad and then re-editing the political ad, re-uploading it Youtube again only to have it taken down because you used the photo of a student athlete without permission. So if you decide to try for a third time to upload that political ad to Youtube we suggest you use a photo of a good Republican basketball player, Richie Farmer.

Oh, one more thing Mitch. If you ain’t careful you might be bunking with Richie.

Is Senator Mitch McConnell Supplying His Friendly Super PAC's With Video B-Roll?

by: Hillbilly

Fri Mar 21, 2014 at 06:00:00 AM EDT

Remember March 11, 2014 when Senator Mitch McConnell posted a political web ad called  “Working for Kentuckians” consisting of B-Roll and strange music?

When I saw the ad I couldn’t figure out why Senator Mitch McConnell would post a video like that. It seemed so out of place until I saw a Kentucky Opportunity Coalition ad called "Deserve." When you watch the Kentucky Opportunity Coalition ad called "Deserve" you will notice it includes some of the B-Roll In Senator Mitch McConnell’s “Working for Kentuckians” ad.

We all know Senator Mitch McConnell’s campaign can’t supply a super PAC with video B-Roll to make a Mitch McConnell friendly ad, it’s against the law, but it would be OK to download B-Roll from Senator Mitch McConnell’s Youtube Channel. So we’re back to asking why did Senator Mitch McConnell upload a Youtube B-Roll political ad? Could it be Senator Mitch McConnell was coordinating with a friendly super PAC?

The Kentucky Opportunity Coalition’s treasurer is Caleb Crosby. Does that name ring a bell? It Should because Caleb Crosby is also the treasurer of Karl Rove’s American Crossroads, Crossroads GPS and Kentuckians for Strong Leadership.

I’ve always believed that Senator Mitch McConnell and his campaign is working hand in hand with friendly super PAC’s as I have documented here and here and Senator Mitch McConnell’s B-Roll web ad only strengthens that belief.

Joe Sonka: Meet Mitch McConnell's Gestapo. The Louisville Metro Police!

by: Hillbilly

Mon Mar 17, 2014 at 17:39:03 PM EDT

Senator Mitch McConnell loves to slip around Kentucky and meet with folks friendly to his campaign. However when he gets wind that someone might attend one of these gatherings and ask a tough question he uses his power to enlist law enforcement to stop that sort of stuff.

Courier Journal
U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell’s campaign on Monday barred Joe Sonka, the news editor for LEO Weekly magazine, from attending a press conference following a round-table discussion with veterans.
The campaign called on the Louisville Metro Police to make sure that Sonka, who has been critical of McConnell in the past, from entering the conference room at the Hilton Garden Inn, on Crittenden Drive, where the event was held. Read more.

This sort of stuff is nothing new!

A Little Enhancement To Mitch McConnell's Political Ad. #McConnelling Video

We felt the music in Senator Mitch McConnell's political ad was boring so we replaced it with the senator himself proudly (snark) singing "My Old Kentucky Home."

Was it Mitch McConnell's Mike Dukakis moment?

by: By BERRY CRAIG

Mon Mar 10, 2014 at 14:36:39 PM EDT

Just about everybody says Mitch McConnell laid an egg at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Worse for Kentucky’s senior senator, he might have handed the opposition a golden Mike-Dukakis-in-the-tank moment.

The campaign of Alison Lundergan Grimes, McConnell’s almost certain Democratic foe in the fall (provided he beats tea party-tilting Matt Bevin in the May GOP primary), is already pouncing on McConnell’s misfortune. “Biggest Gaffe of the Year” says a fresh press release from Team Switch.

McConnell made his grand entrance at CPAC packing heat. He beamed and brandished what looked like a pioneer-style Kentucky Long Rifle. The smoke pole was a replica – an award from a grateful National Rifle Association to Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., who is retiring for health reasons.

Charlton Heston’s famous gun-hugging brought down the house at NRA conventions. McConnell’s reprise bombed at CPAC.
 
The only decent applause he got was when he passed the rifle to Coburn. After that, McConnell delivered a brief bloviation full of his usual anti-Democratic sound and fury. But it signified nothing based on the crowd’s not so gung-ho response.

Mitch McConnell's Freudian Slips Caught On Video!

by: Hillbilly

Mon Mar 10, 2014 at 02:43:14 AM EDT

August 2, 2008 Senator Mitch McConnell refers to Barack Obama as Iraq Obama. See the video below.



May 22, 2010 Senator Mitch McConnell refers to Barack Obama being elected in 2008 as 1968. In 1968 Republicans used the Southern Strategy by appealing to racism against African Americans. Freudian Slip? I think so. See the video below.

Does Mitch McConnell's double-digit gender gap doom him in November?

by: By BERRY CRAIG

Mon Feb 17, 2014 at 00:26:49 AM EST

At 64, I’m old enough to remember LBJ’s “credibility gap” over the Vietnam War.

Suspecting he might lose – and the Democrats might not even re-nominate him – President Johnson opted against seeking another term in 1968.

Sen. Mitch McConnell is dogged by his own gap. It’s a gender gap --make that gender gulf-- and it might help Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes unseat him Nov. 4.

The headline grabber in the recent non-partisan Bluegrass Poll was Grimes’ four percentage point lead over the senate minority leader and five-term incumbent.
 
Even so, the story had what we old reporters called a “hidden lead” buried in it: Grimes, Kentucky’s secretary of state, has a 12 point edge among women surveyed.
 
Women, Grimes likes to point out, make up 53 percent of registered voters in the Bluegrass State.
