Mitch McConnell, Alison Lundergan Grimes face off at the Fancy Farm – Boos and cheers, and lulzy stupid jokes by McConnell. Watch the Video and enjoy.
Kentucky Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell faced off Saturday against Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes at the heavily anticipated 133rd Fancy Farm political forum.
The candidates pulled no punches at the traditional red-meat slugfest broadcast nationwide on C-SPAN and online by Kentucky Education Television.
McConnell, who spoke first, avoided direct attacks on his opponent, instead speaking in broad strokes: “Over the next 15 months, we are going to decide what kind of America we want … Barack Obama’s vision for America or Kentucky’s.”
“Kentucky’s voice is the voice of opposition to the Obama agenda, and I’m proud of that. That’s why every liberal in America is out to beat us next year.”
Grimes, took direct swipes at McConnell saying “Sen. McConnell is the most unpopular senator among Democrats but Republicans, as well. There’s a reason he’s so disliked. There is a disease of dysfunction in Washington, D.C., and after 30 years, Sen. McConnell is in the center of it. As long as he remains in D.C., D.C. will stand for dysfunctional capitol.”
She said he couldn’t pass even a kidney stone.
