The Kentucky Republican has released a radio ad parodying ” 'Twas the Night Before Christmas” to attack ObamaCare and his Democratic opponent.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) finally put some effort into something. He has released a radio ad parodying " 'Twas the Night Before Christmas" to attack ObamaCare and his Democratic opponent.
"Twas the night before Christmas, four years ago," McConnell said in the radio ad. "Liberals wanted Obamacare but Kentucky said no. If you like your plan you keep it, they said with a twinkle in their eye. Newspapers now say, that was the year's biggest lie. Higher taxes, more spending,sky-high record debt, Obama's war on coal —had enough yet? So Obama wondered who's my candidate for these times? And guess who it goes to?"
A voice then interrupts McConnell announcing "Alison Lundergan Grimes" as the Democratic nominee for the Kentucky Senate seat.
"The differences are stark and your choice will be clear," McConnell continued. "But you’ll make your decision in November next year. I’m Mitch McConnell and this approved message is mine, thanks to the McConnell Senate Committee ’14, who paid for this time. So Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to Kentuckians all, especially Alison Lundergan Grimes, I’ll see you next Fall."
"As we've seen from his insurmountable disapproval ratings, Kentuckians are tired of Mitch McConnell's silly political games," said Grimes spokeswoman Charly Norton. "Our campaign looks forward to continuing to hold McConnell accountable as folks across the Commonwealth unite around Alison's campaign. The people of Kentucky are ready for a new Senator in the new year."
(TPM) Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said on Monday night he wants to repeal Obamacare "root and branch" but keep the law's state-based insurance exchange in Kentucky, called Kynect.
"I think it's fine to have a website. Yeah," he said during the first and only scheduled Kentucky Senate debate with Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes, pressed on whether he wants to keep Kynect.
Kynect is the portal which funnels the Obamacare subsidies that have insured some 500,000 Kentuckians in the last year on the private insurance market or Medicaid expansion. It is well-liked in the state even though Obamacare polls poorly.
Last Week Tonight's John Oliver offers to "help" Kentucky's Mitch McConnell and his opponent, Alison Lundergan Grimes finish the race to the bottom on their campaign ads with some not safe for work offerings that you definitely could not air on network television.
This ad sure as hell beats that ridiculous "What rhymes with Alison Lundergan Grimes" attack ad McTurtle released in the beginning of the month. Here's to hoping she sends McConnell packing: McConnell Challenger Grimes Previews Campaign Launch With Web Video Read more...
