Mitch McConnell has a little wife problem. I don’t have a problem with his wife sitting on a board of directors that is literally trying to shut down the coal industry in Kentucky, and it doesn’t bother me that she serves on another board (Wells Fargo) that won’t invest in surface mining in coal in Appalachia. But it’s a wee bit hypocritical for McConnell to act like he’s the great defender of Kentucky’s way of life when his bank account is filled with anti-coal money. This cuts right into his main avenue of attack against Alison Lundergan Grimes.
That still leaves him with the charge that Grimes is actually a black man from Kenya, although I don’t think most people will be convinced on that one.
