Well, he doesn't have a glass jaw that's for sure

Human and Chelonii hybrid Mitch McConnell has narrowly survived many a bruising election campaign. But despite all of his anti-legislative skills his political career is in trouble.
A recent survey from Democratic firm Public Policy Polling revealed him to be the least popular senator in the nation
Ashley Judd is mentioned as a possible candidate for the Democrats in 2014, but one would think their will be a long-line of potential candidates for a seat that is so clearly competitive.
Oh, and of course, if there's one group even less popular than McConnell it is this.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) could see a primary challenge from local businessman Matt Bevin, who sources say is reaching out to Tea Party groups in the state to gauge support for a 2014 Senate run.
Bevin is quite loaded too as he became rich the old fashioned way -- he inherited it.   If he can just avoid discussing wacky theories on the power of lady parts until after the primary, he may be quite a threat to McConnell.

So don't look for Ol' Mitch to be less of a right-wing jackass in the near future. He may soon out whine Lindsey Graham.

One should not mistake NATIONAL un-popularity with political weakness, in the case of some of the senators of Republican hard core states. They probably love him still, even more, now that the "lame-stream media" have exposed him for the hollow tool he is. Has anyone ever done a survey on which states are most renowned for their pathetic choices for U.S. Senate? I submit Kentucky as a strong nominee for the top spot, but Ok. and So. Carolina votes would be understandable also,too.
