Mitch McConnell Airs Anti-ObamaCare Christmas-Themed Ad

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."

Grimes's campaign fired back against the ad:

"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."
