    is a conservative U.S. Senator scared shi...less that he is gonna be primaried...especially from the far right.... and taking special care to reassure the rightmost of those crazies that he is on their side.

    You are seeing the same thing with Lindsay Graham and his attempts to keep Bengazi alive and Chuck Hagel's nomination saw it with Olympia Snowe (who finally said screw it).

    When campaign time comes, you can be absolutely sure that messages like this will be referred to along with companion messages that read essentially.....

    I am fighting for your rights to own as many weapons of any type and as much ammo as possible and the ultra liberal Muslims are coming to get me.  Send as much money as you can.  We are manning the Alamo and I need your help and firepower.
    Kentucky is a very red state and Mitch is playing home team politics here.  It is nasty and slimy, but in Kentucky, it is what has kept him in office and given him the seniority to be Speaker and earned him an annual income FAR beyond his earnings as a Senator.  Who would want to give THAT up?

    Free markets would be a great idea, if markets were actually free.
