I’d love to beat Mitch McConnell, partly because he’s Mitch McConnell and partly because we need that seat to get to a filibuster-proof 60.
The folks at AFSCME who cut that radio spot (but not, as far as I can tell, the flyer) should go home and wash their minds out with soap. No excuse. None whatever. If McConnell tried to serve in the military and got booted out because of his sexual orientation, that’s a reason to repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, not to replace McConnell. And I don’t think his anti-gay voting record makes his love life any of anyone else’s business.
