"McConnell suffered."

How long do we have to suffer McConnell?

Wow, for only 72 years old, Mitch is pretty frail and unsteady on his feet. No wonder he’s such a pushover for the DimocRATS in Congress.

Mitch is 72, and that will now be used against him in this campaign.

“Senator-Elect Alison Grimes, sadly.”

It also means a vile oligarch will be removed from the US Senate. He’ll deprived of what he lusts after: all the power that he has ceded to the position of Majority Leader over the last couple of years in his various “handshake agreements” with Reid. He thought he would BE majority leader by now, but all those great and awesome Establishment candidates went down in flames in November, 2012.

Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., had a little trouble finding his footing during a primary eve campaign event. The minority leader's campaign tells CBS News that McConnell suffered from polio as a child.

It's a real medical condition, although I'm not sure if that's what it's called.

He tripped over all the lies he has been telling. His campaign against Bevin has been one of the most disgusting I have ever witnessed.

I believe that is its name. It's a significant disease receiving little research as it should become extinct. If he has post-polio it probably won't much affect his ability to perform his job . His position brings enough like minded staff that he doesn't have to be very physical. Our problems with Mitch aren't his peripheral nervous system, but rather his central one.

Reminds me of the saying “Whenever you see a turtle on a fencepost remember, someone helped it get up there.” In Mitch’s case it’s those “Let’s change the party from the inside” voters.

Yeah, it's all McConnell's fault that Bevin has run an atrociously horrible campaign. Sorry, but Bevin did that all on his own...McConnell has certainly exploited it to the nth degree, but Bevin gave out the ammunition himself.
