    I've had some issues with some of the narratives you've tried to create (McConnell is a genius / Hillary will distance herself from Obama) but you are dead-on here. Weiner is poison to Democrats and no one here should be defending him.

    Highly recommended.

    Why do I have the feeling George W. Bush joined the Stonecutters, ate a mess of ribs, and used the Constitution as a napkin?

      to name a Senator who has gone as far as Mitch McConnell has despite having absolutely no accomplishments, no charisma, and routinely getting tough challenges in his home state. Actually, the only other guy I can say that does that is Harry Reid, with the exception being that at least Reid distinguished himself as a legislator for his home state. There isn't perhaps one man more responsible for President Obama's stunted, halting agenda than Mitch.

      McConnell has had very few errors, and tends to bounce back effectively. We will see how he deals with a primary challenge but I suspect he may now finally be in trouble. This guy is a self-funder. He's never faced that.

      But you'd be crazy to bet against him.

      I detest him, but I have great respect for him as a politician. I wish we had somebody as purely evil to the core and rotten to the bone as him to do our dirty work.
