If Grimey (as she prefers to be called) is elected to the Senate, I declare the forthcoming GOP Senate stillborn. Two more years of Obama packing the courts. And if the GOP wins enough Senate races in other states to get a razor-thin Senate majority despite losing the KY seat, the RATs certainly will win the Senate back in 2016 when we have all those tough seats to defend.

I have no problem with someone with a conservative whose background and record makes him likely to win a general election taking out McConnell in the primary, but running some Paultard off the street who claimed to be an MIT grad because he once listened to a lecture from some guy who rented out an MIT conference room is not a good plan. The GOP got lucky in 2010 with Rand Paul, because Rand (i) is smart enough not to say the kind of things that his father says (except for that hiccup when he said that he’d vote against the Civil Rights Act, which he then took back) and (ii) it was 2010, but Bevin does not appear to be as sharp as Rand, and 2014, while a promising GOP year, may not turn out to be 2010.

I have no problem taking a calculated gamble to nominate grassroots conservatives over less conservative establishment types (I supported Mourdoch over Lugar, Cruz over Dewhurst, Lee over Bennett, Rubio over Frist, Toomey over Specter, DeMint over Beasley, etc.), but nominating a Paultard with no experience or accomplishments is not my idea of progress towards a more conservative America.

Well, the views of the GOPe “concerned” raise their heads.
