Mitch Hit by Two Blows in Same Day


Not only did today see Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell outed as one of the most corrupt members of Congress, a new poll revealed how deeply unpopular he is in his home state.

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) released its report Beyond DeLay: The 22 Most Corrupt Members of Congress (and two to watch) this morning, Mitch prominent on the list, and lots of gory details.

This afternoon, the Lexington Herald-Leader and WTVQ-36 released more results of its recent comprehensive poll, these revealing that 55 percent of Kentuckians disapprove of McConnell's position on Iraq. Thirty-eight percent approve, and seven percent are undecided.

MediaCzech at BluegrassRoots has the details.

UPDATE, 7:23 p.m.Thanks to corpus juris for noticing that I had typed "Thirty-eight percent disapproved" when of course it should read "Thirty-eight percent approved." Guess all that disapproval of Mitch made me giddy. I have corrected the sentence.
