Oh Kentucky. I’m’a have to ask you to sit down. I mean, you made this problem, and you could have fixed it, but you stayed home, or you just put your check next to the box that said ‘Incumbent’ because, what, it was too hard to actually think before you voted.
Let me backtrack: Kentucky Senator, and Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell is so unpopular in Kentucky that the state’s voters thought Colonel Sanders … yes, that Colonel Sanders of KFC fame … would be a better senator than McConnell.
“In spite of KFC’s weak poll numbers Colonel Sanders remains a beloved figure, with 71% of voters seeing him favorably to only 8% with an unfavorable view. In fact they even think Colonel Sanders could be part of the solution to the problems in Washington — by a 47/27 spread voters in the state say they think Colonel Sanders would make for a better US Senator than Mitch McConnell. Too bad he’s dead.”
Yes, folks, the voters of Kentucky, who just reelected Mitch ‘Mock Turtle’ McConnell to office last fall, now say they’d rather have the dead guy who mass-marketed fried chicken as their Senator.
McConnell’s approval rating in the state is 32%.
So why is McConnell in office? People don’t vote. I mean, seriously, it’s that simple. The Democrats sat home and the few measly republicans who did show up got their way, and now the people of Kentucky are whining.
Well, you made this mess, and only you can fix it. Next time there’s an election, put down your phone, turn off your TV, look away from the porn on your computer, and go vote.
Only, maybe don’t vote for the dead chicken guy?
