Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as
is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries
that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) ranks as the nation's least popular senator, according to a new poll released Tuesday.
The survey, conducted by Democratic polling firm Public Policy Polling, showed that more than half — 55 percent — of Kentucky voters disapprove of their senator, while just 37 percent of those surveyed signaled support.
Yet just because people think he sucks, that doesn't mean they want to terminate his suckiness:
But despite his struggles, McConnell is still a favorite for reelection. The five-term senator is favored in hypothetical match-ups against any of the leading contenders in the Democratic field [...]
More than half of voters in Kentucky disapprove and this man is still in office. Better a shitty Republican that continuously works against their best interests than a Democrat working for them:
No matter who ends up as the nominee, however, Democrats will have an uphill climb in replacing McConnell, despite his lagging favorability numbers. Republicans continue to dominate in the state — Mitt Romney won by 23 points there — and voters are likely to favor even an unpopular Republican.
An unpopular Republican is an understatement:
"Both in terms of raw disapproval (55 percent) and net approval (-18) McConnell has the worst numbers of any of his peers, taking that mantle from Nebraska's Ben Nelson [(D-Neb.)]," PPP Director Tom Jensen said in a statement.
So next time you hear McConnell include phrases like "We all know" or "the American people think..." into all of that propaganda he so eloquently delivers, you can take into account that special bond McConnell has with those he supposedly cares so much about.
Please, Kentucky, do the whole country a favor and get rid of this guy.
