Dems and Tea Party working together against McConnell

Wouldn't be the first time Dems set up a "tea party" candidate to divide the vote. It's how we got a Democrat rep here first time in my life (but she's been replaced now, thank God)

Dems must be really confident that a Dem can win in Kentucky against a crazy if they're doing this.

Because a Tea Party crazy will be far worse than McConnell.


Mitch McConnell has been obnoxiously effective as Senate Minority Leader.


And a tea party crazy 1) isn't much of a step down from the Democrat perspective and 2) wouldn't be senior enough to cause too much trouble right away.

McConnell is annoying no doubt but he also knows when to fold the cards as shown with the fiscal cliff. The guy isn't stupid.

Do we have an idea who would replace him as minority leader?

Rumor is Ashley Judd will run for the seat.

Judd going against a crazy tea-partier telling her how her uterus works would be fun.

They need to break off and make their own party. The policy goals and political methods of the Tea Party and non-Tea Party Republicans are too different to warrant being affiliated with one another. I hope my party stands strong in the face of these non-Republicans infiltrating my party and defeats them.
