"Recently, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) attacked his Democratic opponent, Alison Lundergan Grimes, for out-of-state fundraisers. A spokeswoman for his campaign stated, “‘It’s] no surprise that Obama’s liberal Hollywood friends are supporting Alison Lundergan Grimes’ campaign against Mitch McConnell. They’re obviously not concerned about Kentucky’s representation.’ In other words, they’re mad at her for fundraising out of state…or so they’d like you to believe.

The reality of the situation is that McConnell’s own fundraising has been mostly out of state. In fact, New York Daily News reports that a whopping eighty percent of the $20 million he’s raised this cycle has come from out of state. And although he hasn’t made any of his own trips to Hollywood for fundraising, he made six trips to Manhattan for at least eight different fundraisers, collecting money from fiscally conservative Wall Streeters and business executives. So it’s fine if you raise money from out of state, in McConnell’s book, but only if it’s Wall Street cash.

Yet more proof the obstructionist duncebuckets in the Republican Party and the policies they champion are bad for America’s morale. 
They’d rather pander to the far-right whackos than use common sense, and that’s a crying shame.
