Paranoid Much? Sen. Mitch McConnell says liberals are infiltrating conservative groups in Kentucky

Sen. Mitch McConnell says liberals are infiltrating conservative groups in Kentucky



FRANKFORT, Ky. U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell's re-election campaign is contending that Democratic liberals are trying to infiltrate conservative groups in the state to oust McConnell next year.

Tea Party activists in the state who disfavor McConnell deny the claim, saying they are not working with any Democratic group in an effort to retire the Republican senator from Louisville.

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."

10. Works for me. Dems should have started infiltrating everything 30 yrs ago, just like the Pubs did.

Maybe we wouldn't be in such a shitty situation today.

14. Who would want to?

How ridiculous..."infiltrators"? They go to meetings pretending to be Teabaggers and sway troglodytes to the Liberal Way? They are spies trying to pick up on Teabagger secret strategies?

What a Paranoid Narcissist.

15. Secret strategy

Difficult to sway minions, but to learn strategy is valuable.

17. I suppose...

but Teabagger strategies are so obvious. Why bother?

OTOH if you could infiltrate the secret meetings of the BIG players--the fat corporate criminals--now that might be useful as far as the timing of their assaults... but their strategies are also fairly predictable... Basically it's "ends justify the means...and WE have the means..."

20. The devil is in the details

Plus Mitch can create more paranoia is his support system AND again, it is projection. A multifaceted pronouncement.

22. I see the usefulness of promoting paranoia to Mitch & Co.

but there's no logic there...Liberals don't need to infiltrate Teabag parties to know what they think and do.

18. That's too funny. A liberal in a KY conservative group. Sounds like a good

idea for a Broadway play. Maybe call it "A Liberal in King McConnell's Court".
