Mitch McConnell TV Star

Senator Mitch McConnell is the leader of Republicans in the United States Senate and he is running for re-election in the state of Kentucky. He already has become an Internet star by providing the social media of a portrait of him attempting to smile which comes across as a man with a tooth ache unable to open his mouth. He has become the object of derision. So, what exactly is new about a Republican who is the object of laughter?

To highlight his media prowess, his campaign has released a video which depicts his University of Kentucky basketball team being defeated by the Duke basketball team. The ad proclaims: “It was intended to honor our great Kentucky basketball team.”

In the Republican fantasy world, losing the battle is the object.
