In the midst of Mitch McConnell’s fantastic week of offending Tea Partiers (“fringe“) and women (“empty dress“) — and being completely AWOL on the Syria debate in fear of Tea Party backlash — his campaign sent out an urgent warning to Kentuckians:
OPRAH IS COMING TO GET YOU!
Yes, that is an actual image within the fundraising email his campaign sent out this morning, warning that Oprah, Ashely Judd and some Hollywood Jewish dude that Kentuckians don’t recognize and have never heard of are plotting to destroy our way of life.
Here’s the text of Mitch’s pitch:
It has been clear for a while now that I am the number one target of the left in the 2014 elections.
And by “left,” I mean out of touch liberal extremists that want to transform Kentucky and America into their own personal Hollywood, limousine liberal fantasy.
They almost took that fight on directly, by teasing a run by a liberal movie star that doesn’t even live in Kentucky. But that fizzled out, so they have clearly moved on to plan B.
Plan B, is to instead funnel millions of liberal Hollywood dollars into Kentucky’s senate race. Just this week, Hollywood’s wealthiest liberal activist, Jeffrey Katzenberg, announced that he would personally lead that effort.
Katzenberg raised millions for Obama, and some people have called him Obama’s greatest supporter. It’s estimated he fueled his re-election campaign with more than $30 million in contributions.
And he will do it again to try to defeat me.
That’s why it’s vital that I have your help.
What are the Hollywood liberals so mad about? Well, as you know, I have led the fight against the Obama agenda. Against Obamacare. Against his out of control EPA. Against his illegal recess appointments. And against his tax hikes and runaway spending.
Friend, there is a good reason why they want to get rid of me. For them, I’m an obstacle that is too often standing in the way of their liberal agenda. And I’m happy about that.
So please, help me fight back today. Your support for Team Mitch will help us counter the California liberals that want to decide Kentucky’s next senator.
Please consider donating $100, $50, or $25 to our efforts today.
I am counting on you to help me stand up against this onslaught brought by millions of dollars in left-wing attacks.
“For Freedom”…. I like that.
Of course, what McConnell neglects to mention is that he likes Hollywood limousine money, too, like this big Beverly Hills fundraiser he threw last winter with the big shot Hollywood entrainment lawyer of Steven Spielberg and Clint Eastwood. And I don’t know if Donald Trump is “Hollywood,” but he’s certainly surrealist entertainment.
Anyway, it’s good to know that ole Mitch still hates liberals just as much as the Tea Party, because I was beginning to wonder.
And for our own safety and your children’s future, please keep an eye out for Oprah.
