    •  New factor: Tea Party. (0+ / 0-)

      His favorability is in the negatives, his pick for senate in 2010 got swat down, and if a guy like Paul Ryan get picked, his campaign coffers may dry up faster than a turtle leather husk on an ashpalt on a hot summer's day.

      Right now, McConnell and the '08 Senate Repubs are finally having their turn to bat against the Tea Party and I bet it'll bring a smile to every kos' face seeing ol' turtle soup "right"-ed out int he primaries. I know I would. :)
