Shut Up, They Explained.
Chris Christie was getting too popular, too noticed, too successful, even to the point of attracting Dems and Indies. That’s easily fixable. The Dems, with the help of the compliant MSM, can take down any Republican. Christie made the mistake -like John McCain and other mavericks before him – of assuming the media liked him. Oh, they liked him as long as he criticized other Republicans and wasn’t a threat. The moment he might be a threat -Takedown.
Did Christie alienate too many GOP-ers with his Obama-love and bipartisan huggies to stage a comeback? I don’t know, probably not. He’s still exciting and popular but I hope he ‘s smarter. The MSM is not the friend of any Republican or conservative.
MSNBC’s Al Sharpton called it the biggest scandal since Teapot Dome. No, Sharpton, you’re a helluva bigger scandal.
The MSM and Dems have been more successful with their Koch Brothers demonization. So many people hate these 2 people but have no clue why. The real purpose to these brothers who have done absolutely nothing wrong: Discourage GOP donors. It’s working, too. Dems are way ahead in the money this election. If they manage to save the Senate, it will be due to their huge money advantage, which buys more ads, more ad time, etc. Shut up, GOP Donors, they explained.

It’s tough to get an even break when the MSM is against you http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/07/23/from-jon-stewart-to-cable-news-media-missteps-fuel-backlash-in-middle-east-war/?intcmp=latestnews
The left is totally aligned against Israel and with some combo of Hamas/Palestinians/Islamists. The only question is: how far will the left go? http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2011/11/figures-occupy-miami-protest-leader-led-jews-go-back-to-the-ovens-rally/
A little reflection on the anti-Semitic, pro Palestinian/Hamas left. Who ever thought people in this nation would march for Hamas? http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2014/08/a-pro-hamas-left-emerges.php

This is awful. First we learn that nearly 200 children were accidently buried alive building terror tunnels for Hamas from Gaza to Israel and now we learn ISIS deliberately buries Yazidi children alive. http://nation.foxnews.com/2014/08/09/horrors-isis-children-buried-alive-crucified-corpses
It’s not as if the United Nations has any credibility left. We should stop our membership, quit feeding their endless bank, and kick out as many Blame America First Spies “diplomats” as we can. http://blog.unwatch.org/index.php/2014/08/11/ngo-william-schabas-must-recuse-himself-from-un-gaza-inquiry/ The UN fuels the anti-Semitism of the world. What did William Schabas do to make him unfit for a “neutral” inquiry into the Gaza/Hamas/Israel conflict?

The major KY news outlets are liberal – including my local Ashland Daily Independent – and dutifully working their darn best to elect you, Ms Grimes. I used “Ms” because you tout yourself as a women’s advocate. Evidently because you’re a woman and Mitch McConnell is a man, he cannot speak for women. So far Mitch hasn’t charged you with similar negligence in speaking for men but that seems a fair balance to me. You are trying to instigate your own little #WarOnWomen here in Kentucky. The Daily Independent frequently features large front-page stories with pics of Dems helping you in your quest by actively campaigning by your side; let’s review them, shall we?
Bill Clinton, chronic philanderer who was disbarred for life because he lied under oath during a sexual harassment lawsuit.
Former KY Governor Paul Patton who not only humiliated his long-time wife when the story of an affair became public but furthered the disgrace by threatening to use his office as governor to harm his mistress’ business when she broke up with him. I don’t know if I’d call that a war on women but it certainly was a War On A Woman. She finally went public with the affair to save her business.
Numerous state officials including the current governor and lieutenant governor, all of whom have been noticeably silent during one of our state’s biggest scandal, a scandal ignored by the national media. Three women, two from the highly respected LRC [Legislative Research Commission] charged a long-time Democratic legislator with repeated sexual harassment. The women were Democrats who complained about the harassment but were shocked to hear that they should Shut Up to prevent harm to the Kentucky Democratic Party. The LRC women complained to supervisor Bobby Sherman multiple times, who also advised them to ignore the harassment. Sherman eventually resigned, as did the state legislator, but he re-entered the LRC building the weekend after his resignation took effect in order to destroy an unknown number of documents on unknown topics. A state legislative Ethics Committee has declined to punish anyone for anything and a member recently resigned. The 3 women finally filed a civil lawsuit. You’re such a brave advocate for women, Ms Grimes, that you’ve refused to comment or condemn any of this.
Your daddy Jerry Lundergan owns a hamburger joint near the UK campus, named Hugh Jass and catering to the drinking frat boy crowd. Offerings include Charlotte’s Rack, named after your mom, Abby’s Hugh Jass, named after your sister, and The Tiny Tush. Wonder what the reaction would be if Mitch owned such an establishment?
You’ve also attacked Mitch and the GOP for accepting contributions from the Koch Brothers. I don’t understand the demonization of these 2 individuals, who aren’t particularly conservative and were #59 in the amount of monetary donations during the 2012 election. You’ve accepted donations from the likes of ultra-liberal, anti-coal, anti-fossil fuel Leo DiCaprio, Barbra Streisand, and Tom Steyer. See any disconnect there? Can you explain why it’s okay for you to accept big bucks from unions, who were huge top ten contributors in 2012, but the Koch Brothers are pariahs?
Lately you’ve been touting Mitch as a beltway insider – which is surely accurate – while you’re plain ole everyday Everyman, er, Everywoman. There may be some truth in that. After all, your biggest accomplishment is being former KY Democratic Party chair Jerry Lundergan’s daughter. Your daddy successfully ran Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign twice here in Kentucky and is a solid Clinton ally. You became Ky Secretary of State, no big accomplishment in a state run by Democrats. Other than wisely choosing a successful father, what makes you a good candidate for the United States Senate?
The KY media cover for you by ignoring dumb statements such as “Israel’s Iron Dome prevents Palestinian terrorist tunnel attacks” or your dishonesty in attacking Mitch for a supposed anti-coal bill or your dishonest claim to set Harry Reid and national Dems straight on coal during a big fundraiser – you didn’t say a thing to support coal -but this latest “I’m Not Barack Obama’ ad is pretty goofy. It’s also pretty dishonest because you attack Mitch for holding a rifle in the air, even though there’s pics out there of you in a similar gesture. Worse, you’re skeet shooting. Remember when folks made fun of Obama’s Mom jeans, girl bike with a big helmet, and his wimpy baseball toss at the opening of baseball season? His PR machine went into high gear by showing our president….. wait for it… skeet shooting.
Come to think of it, John Kerry did a similar ‘I’m just like you’ gun pose late in his 2004 campaign. Not good precedent, Alison, but hey, so far you haven’t done an “I’m Not a Witch” ad.
