    69% favor closing loop holes so that the rich and corporations do not pay less taxes than average folks

    But just a few questions later we learn that

    58% favor making sure the rich and corporations pay their fair share of taxes.

    Umm, what do the other 11% think will happen? The magical tax fairy will appear, wave his wand and "Poof!" the tax loopholes will be closed but the rich won't pay more?

    So Mitch may be getting quite a few voters who think that he can "Repeal Obamacare and replace it with Kynect".

    GOP 2014 strategy -- Hire clowns, elephants, and a ringmaster and say "a media circus" has emerged and blame Democrats for lack of progress. Have pundits agree that "both sides are to blame" and hope the public will stay home on election day.

      and call on Kentucky's black Democrats to save his arse?

      No person is free except in the freedom of other persons, and that man's only real freedom is to know and faithfully occupy his place -- a much humbler place than we have been taught to think -- in the order of creation. (Wendell Berry)

        There was a weird opportunity created by the primary run-off that doesn't exist outside of that bubble. But it'd be funny as hell watching Mitch try to appeal to blacks.

          with the conservative Tea Party members hating him along with all of the rest of the establishment GOP.   I didn't realize how bad it was until I was reading comments about Cochran on a few rightwing sites yesterday.  They want them all gone.  Yikes.
