The National Association of Realtors accidentally admitted human-turtle hybrid Mitch McConnell is “for sale” in a mailer sent out backing the Senate Minority Leader . The 8.5 x 11 glossy ad probably didn’t do the bug-eyed hatemonger much good.
In large letters, the mailer reads “Mitch McConnell,” with a large, red “For Sale” sign beneath it. Sure, it includes “strengthening our economy” in smaller letters underneath McConnell’s name.
The Courier-Journal notes that “the problem is that McConnell’s foes have been trying to paint him as relentlessly in pursuit of the almighty campaign dollar.”
He’s the most active opponent of campaign finance reform in Congress, often filing briefs in support of lawsuits challenging existing finance laws.
He’s also a voracious fundraiser who has hauled in more than $28 million in this election cycle alone and has been helped by tens of millions of dollars in dark money and other outside spending made possible by successful challenges to campaign finance laws and by McConnell’s opposition to new laws.
Only if you look at the smaller type do can you see that it’s not an attack ad. “Under McConnell’s name it says, “Strengthening Our Economy …”
To someone who simply skims the ad, it only serves to reaffirm what Alison Lundergan Grimes has been saying about her opponent: That McConnell pimps himself out to special interests, and expends considerable energy suckling on the Koch brothers’ teets.
While McConnell may be unabashedly “for sale,” in his defense, he only offers himself to the highest bidder. He’s not a cheap whore.
