Sticking with Mitch

I was not surprised to see Ashley Judd drop out as a potential contender against Senator Mitch McConnell. The Democratic Party must be hard up looking for candidates to run against Mitch; Judd did not even live in Kentucky.

Now the Dems seem to be stuck with Alison Lundergan Grimes, who thanked many of her biggest supporters for her bid as Kentucky’s secretary of state by sending them thank-you notes on Kentucky state stationery (a no-no) apparently at taxpayer expense, indicating that her first act as secretary of state was to get them all Kentucky Colonels as thanks for supporting her financially.

Grimes will need a great deal more money to make her inexperience appear even remotely palatable to Kentucky voters; maybe next time she will make all her contributors Kentucky Admirals and play by the rules by using her personal stationary instead of official state stationary.

As for me, I shall stick with the best senator Kentucky has ever had — Sen. Mitch McConnell.
