What’s better than watching Alison Lundergan-Grimes tear human-turtle hybrid Mitch McConnell a new sphincter? Seeing the expression on his face as she does it!
We know it’s only Monday, but prepare for the best fifteen minutes of your week! Eight of those minutes will be spent witnessing Lundergan-Grimes’ glorious takedown of Senator McConnell, and the rest chuckling at the quickly dawning realization that he thinks he’s campaigning against President Obama.
And the look of befuddled disbelief on his face!
Grimes hit McConnell with a number of zane one-liners. “Thirty-five is my age,” said Lundergan-Grimes, “It’s also Senator McConnell’s approval rating.” She added, “You know the Senator is worried about the results in November when you see his campaign manager wearing a “Mitch For Governor 2015″ button.”
She explained that, of the two of them, only one cares about women’s rights. “If Mitch McConnell were a TV show, he’d be Mad Men–treating women unfairly, stuck in 1968, and ending this season,” she said.
“The women of Kentucky…are here to send you a message: The barriers for women have not all been lowered because you are standing in our way. $.76 on every dollar is not acceptable, and equal pay for equal work is not preferential treatment. This is not a woman’s issue–this is a families issue,” she said.
Lundergan-Grimes discussed the importance of a living wage, the dysfunction in Washington D.C., and the need for someone who doesn’t want to dismantle Medicare and Social Security. Lundergan-Grimes highlighted the importance of collective bargaining, pointing out that it is a “fundamental right of our American workers.”
All-in-all, Lundergan-Grimes’ performance was an excellent verbal beatdown of someone who, in November, will be crawling back into his shell.
