Liberals Infiltrating the Tea Party?

Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell is in trouble.   Kentucky Tea Party activists want him out and could spoil his re-election bid.  That's got McConnell lashing out, claiming his opponents have been infiltrated by, gasp, Liberals.

In a campaign fund-raising email Monday, McConnell's campaign manager, Jesse Benton, said every conservative in the state needs to be aware of "an important development."

He said a report by Politico, a political journalism news group, "confirmed that (President) Barack Obama's Democratic allies are attempting to infiltrate conservative organizations across Kentucky to encourage and fund opposition to Senator Mitch McConnell."

Benton said liberals know that McConnell "has stood side-by-side with conservatives in Kentucky and they need to manufacture a movement against him to get attention to the race."

If nothing else it suggests that Democratic mischief-makers could be in for a lot of fun in tight Republican primaries in the run-up to the 2014 mid-term elections.

Ashley Judd may run for the dems against the chinless wonder or his tea party replacement.

How cool would it be to have Ashley Judd as Senator from Kentucky and Dolly Parton from Tennessee?

Nothing better than making an already paranoid bunch suspect they have fifth columnists in their ranks.
