Mitch McConnell definitely wins for worst person in the world today. If his utterly crass gloating about killing sensible gun legislation wasn't enough to secure the title, this insane new campaign ad will seal it.
Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is seizing on a series of recent attacks against him for campaign ad fodder, tying a controversial liberal group to President Obama and decrying the "dirty" tactics of "liberals."McConnell is tanking in the polls, underwater in his approval rating at home. So of course he's going to run against Obama, the only politician more unpopular in Kentucky than McConnell himself, and turn himself into the victim. Even now, a year and a half ahead of the election and with just one declared opponent, his desperation is showing.
"Mitch McConnell is Obama's number one target. Because Mitch protects Kentucky from Obama's bad ideas," says a narrator in the 30-second spot. "Liberals will do anything to beat McConnell." [...]
"And now liberals compare Mitch to al Qaeda terrorists and North Korea's dictator," the narrator continues in the ad, citing a recent attack ad likening McConnell to an al Qaeda leader and an editorial calling him "more dangerous to Americans than Kim Jong Un," respectively. "How dirty will Obama's allies get?"
And a desperate Mitch McConnell is just about the smallest, meanest, and most despicable thing in politics today.
