... or at least that's what the Senate Conservatives Fund—which is backing Matt Bevin, McConnell's truly pathetic tea party opponent in the Kentucky GOP's U.S. Senate primary—wants you to believe:

Female: Unbelievable. Liberal judge John Heyburn just ruled that Kentucky has to immediately recognize same-sex marriages from other states.

Male: Is that the same judge who overturned the ban on partial birth abortion?

Female: Yep.

Male: Well who recommended this liberal judge?

Female: Mitch McConnell. Un-huh. Mitch McConnell called Heyburn an excellent judicial appointment and praised him for being progressive.

Male: Well, progressive means liberal. Now, why would McConnell recommend a liberal?

Female: Liberal cronyism. Heyburn donated money to McConnell and served as a county chairman for his campaign.

Male: Well, McConnell should admit right now that recommending Judge Heyburn was a mistake. He knew this judge wasn't a conservative and promoted him anyway. Now we're stuck with gay marriage.

Female: Yeah. First it was funding Obamacare. Then it was giving Obama a blank check to raise the debt ceiling. Now it's liberal judges. I'm voting for conservative Matt Bevin instead.

Male: Yeah, me too.

Bevin is such a pathetic candidate that I'm almost sad to see his campaign go down the toilet, because even if he doesn't poll worse than McConnell against Allison Lundergan Grimes, he'd be a guaranteed loser in November. But he's a big enough jackoff as it is that I'm not going to shed a tear when he's flushed away.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
