Progress Kentucky: inbred, racist, xenophobic hicks.

Or, the Kentucky Curb-stomp.

Let me start by noting something: yes, many people have at least a small problem with Mitch McConnell. Including myself, sometimes. But that does not mean that the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy will simply tolerate anybody calling his wife a traitorous double agent for the ChiComs. Which is what the rabidly liberal Super PAC (the Democrats still have those? Hypocrites) Progress Kentucky just did.

Recently, the group turned its attention to McConnell’s wife, former Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao, with a focus on her race.

In a Feb. 14 Twitter message, Progress says: “This woman has the ear of (Sen. McConnell)—she’s his wife. May explain why your job moved to China!”


Other messages from Progress’s social networking account about Chao have run for the past several days, saying her “Chinese (money)” is buying state elections.

You know what the most insulting thing about this is? It’s not the racism, the sexism, or even the causal accusations of treason. Everybody knows that progressives – particularly progressive males – have a frankly sexual fetish about attacking prominently conservative and Republican women, and that goes double for minority conservative/Republican women. We all know it, and we largely have to accept (at least, in the abstract) that these attacks will happen, because the only people that can stop them – progressive women – have long since been smacked around and down into passivity.  Which is horrible, but it’s not my psycho-sexual scene.  No, what is insulting is that Progress Kentucky thinks that this blatant race-baiting and xenophobia would work.

Well, it doesn’t.  It only works on Democrats.  The dumber, more inbred ones.  The good news, for Progress Kentucky?  To reach them all the group has to do is send out a subcriber-only email blast.

PS: The Democrats do so like their crude racial messaging.  As Bobby Jindal or Tim Scott would tell you.

PPS: It has been reported, by the way, that Progress Kentucky has been sniffing around (yes, like a dog) the various Kentucky Tea Party groups in order to encourage a possible challenger that would improve the chances of their …favored candidate… Ashley Judd.  I do not say Do not challenge Mitch McConnell in the primary.  I do say Anybody who works with Progress Kentucky is a despicable worm who lays down with racists.

  1. Also note the reptilian non-apology. Paraphrase: ‘This is a mistake. But she IS *Chinese* ya know’ :wink, wink:

  2. One wonders if .. just maybe .. Progress KY realize their path will be slicker under McConnell …

    1. McConnell is not in the least bit vulnerable to any breathing Kentucky democrat especially a carpet bagging has been celebrity from my home state of Tennessee (seriously Kentucky can have her). The only hope for the DKos crowd is they can get rid of McConnell and hope for Akin type. However what they don’t realize is Ashley Judd is the Democratic Akin.

      1. That’s my take, tnfriend’. The Progress KY look at how McCaskill greased Akin’s primary win, and are trying to encourage a loose cannon to prematurely jump in the race.

        1. Yep, Ashley Judd’s proper role in politics should be a challenge against Cohen in TN09. Two reasons: 1) She is actually a citizen of the State of Tennessee (though as I have stated Kentucky can have her) and 2) She is the normal opponent Cohen draws i.e. someone so bat crap crazy, they make Cohen look sane in comparison.

  3. Democrats will be Democrats.
    Main news to me is that those two are married. Obviously I’ve been slacking off in my research.

  4. Also note the sly aside in Judd’s ‘denunciation’–“Whatever the intention . . .” They *meant* well, I mean people—she’s CHINESE.

  5. Off topic, Moe, but I expect to see more “less is more” (‘The chocolate ration has been increased from 30 to 25 grams per week.’) from the Obamedia.
