Bluegrass music to my ears

It seems that Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell is in a spot of trouble. McConnell famously launched a suit in federal court against the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 (a.k.a. McCain-Feingold) before the ink was dry on President Bush's signature.

He lost, mostly, in one of the ugliest decisions in U.S. Supreme Court history. If I recall correctly, the late Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist of Shorewood, WI, in announcing the opinions, said he hadn't previously known there were that many judges on the Court.

Mitch McConnell's Democratic opponent, Bruce Lunsford, according to the good Senator's campaign manager, is "little more than an egotistical and greedy man." You stay classy, Mitch McConnell.
