Skip to comments.Mitch McConnell at War
Posted on 11/08/2013 5:51:45 AM PST by Timber Rattler
Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell likes to say, If someone flicks a pebble at you, you hurl a boulder back at him. His political team is just as emphatic. Some Republicans in Kentucky who flirted with working for his primary opponent, Matt Bevin, were told by the McConnell allies that they would get the death penalty. Another frequent warning: Mitch McConnell doesnt take prisoners.
McConnells team shoots the wounded on the battlefield as a matter of course, says University of Virginia professor Larry Sabato. A former GOP leadership aide who has seen the McConnell operation up close sounds terrified. Theyre all killers, he says, without a trace of humor in his voice. These are not guys to be trifled with. They are burn it down, p*** on it, then blow it up kind of guys.
But the blacklisting of Jamestown has deeply unsettled people involved in the behind-the-scenes machinery of GOP politics. Senator John Cornyn of Texas also canceled a small contract with the firm, which produces political television ads for a wide array of GOP candidates, including many moderates. Cornyn has sought to distance himself from this action, though. Im not involved, he told me.
The scope of the blacklisting is probably limited to Jamestown, which pitched the NRSC on new business even while its anti-McConnell ads were on the air in Kentucky. But the blacklisting has sent a message that seems to be getting out loud and clear. Several other Republican ad firms privately told NRSC officials that they now understand the rules, sources say. For now, Jamestown is sticking with the SCF.

If only McConnell fought his "good friend" Harry Reid and the Rats as hard as he fights Conservatives...
Schadenfreude, baby!!! Payback's a bitch..
We can’t take on the liberals if we keep getting backstabbed by RINOs.
I hope Bevin wins.
McConnell shot us in the back and threw us in the tiger pit at the end of the Obamacare shutdown.
Bring Yer Own Bourbon
McConnell is tough only on conservatives
"Dump Mitch. Elect the bitch!"
That's part of the problem. They are supposed to serve not make it a lifelong career. Terms limits would resolve much of this ugly bull.

Let’s bring McConman down.
Time for a REALITY check, Mitch:
1.) What have you ever done to reverse the steamrolling success against the US Constitution and the US Congress of B. Hussein Obama and Harry Reid?
2.) Has Harry Reid ever thanked you for coming up with your Continuing Resolutions to bypass the need to have a Federal Spending Budget for 5 years?
A definitive argument for terms limits and the other reforms proposed by Mark Levin.
Ditch Obama’s Bitch Mitch!
