Tsk, tsk, tsk.  Poor Mitch McConnell.  Here he is obstructing all of that demon bastard Obama's handiwork, and his fellow Republicans go and make a deal with Harry Reid on some of Obama's nominees behind his back.  I mean it is not like McConnell failed to make Obama a one term President, but he is not taking this little setback well.

Here is a statement released by McConnell's campaign manager, Jesse Benton, supposedly targeting Alison Lundergan Grimes for some of her latest comments in the Kentucky Senate race:

"Secretary Grimes' bold pronouncement that efforts to repeal Obamacare are somehow a "waste" is cold comfort to the countless Kentuckians who will be negatively affected by this misguided law. And while she may play political games, the reality is she was recruited to run by Obama allies who are executing a war on coal. If she was elected, it would ensure that a Nevadan who says 'coal makes us sick' would set the agenda in the Senate instead of a Kentuckian who is a champion for coal."
Now, we have the usual genuflecting to the coal companies that all Kentucky politicians seem to be required to do.  And we have the dreaded Obamacare thrown in for good measure.  But last time I checked, most voters in Kentucky don't know who that Nevadan might be.  In fact, I'd say it is a waste of time to include Harry Reid in political skirmishes in Kentucky.  

I think someone pissed in McConnell's Cherrios.
