Granted, he lacks the warmth of Darth Vader or the charm of Jabba the Hutt. But Mitch McConnell, I have always thought, was a principled force for good in an evil, evil place.
Which is why it is so shocking to see the Senate minority leader knee-deep in the manure of slanderous lies being flung at the most conservative, most principled and most electable candidate running in a primary a thousand miles away from his home state of Kentucky.
I have admired Mr. McConnell ever since he took the very lonely and unpopular yet constitutionally scrupulous stand against so-called campaign-finance reform. snip
For these and other reasons, I have never understood the frothing bloodlust among so many good conservatives to see Mr. McConnell defeated in his Kentucky primary later this month.
But Im not so sure any more.
Now roundly loathed by tea partyers nationwide as an underhanded insider, Mr. McConnell has his hands full with a challenge for his own partys nomination. Then he must win re-election to the Senate at a time when his favorable ratings are dangerously low. And if he wants to go from being a nearly powerless minority leader to a majority leader who can actually stop the Obama agenda, he and Republicans need to pick up six seats held by Democrats.
Sounds like a pretty full plate, even for a brilliant and determined tactician like Mr. McConnell.
So why is it that he would be so obsessed with mucking up a Nebraska primary race where by all accounts the best, most conservative and most electable Republican appears on the verge of winning? Polls show Ben Sasse close to grasping the nomination after running a clean, positive campaign laying out his vision for dismantling Obamacare.

Butt out of Nebraska, Mitch. There is no incumbent running and you shouldn't have a dog in this fight. But you have exposed yourself as hating conservatives.
Mitch’s establishment “go along with the Dems politics for the good of the people” has worn thin.
I hope he gets a lesson from selling his soul for a few pieces of silver.
Mitch is a RINO
We lost yesterday which means to me that we now triage Tea Party candidates.
Let’s send our dollars and give our time to these candidates so the next headlines will be “Tea Party Whips Establishment”.
When conservatives really pull together, we’re unbeatable. Don’t let them split our vote.
It is because Mitch - the B...- has been recorded as saying that conservatives wont win any primaries. I sure wish Kentucky would hand him his retirement papers
Sasse is strongly supported by Cruz. Please, Lord see Ben through to victory, Amen.
I've said it so many times now. We need someone with a coherent vision for the future and the instincts to respond in confidence-inspiring ways to fast moving events. Have any of these candidates spoken out and taken the lead in situations as they unfold?
PAY BACKS ARE HELL: I hope that every Tea Party person in KY votes for Alison L. Grimes in the General Election and denies McConnell the privilege of being Senate Majority Leader when he loses the General Election.
