McConnell ‘T’was the Night’ parody pokes fun at Obamacare

Mitch McConnell is sounding confident.

On the day before Christmas, the Senate minority leader released a radio-ad parody of “A Visit from St. Nicholas,” slamming the Obamacare rollout, poking fun at the Democrat running to replace him, and overlooking his primary challenger completely.

mitchmcconnell1224“‘Twas the night before Christmas, four years ago. Liberals wanted ObamaCare, but Kentucky said ‘no,'” McConnell intones, a Kentucky drawl melding with erratic meter.

“‘If you like your plan, you can keep it,’ ” they said with a twinkle in their eye. Newspapers now say that was the year’s biggest lie. Higher taxes, more spending, sky high record debt. Obama’s war on coal — had enough yet?”

McConnell’s ad splices in the voice of Alison Lundergan Grimes, the Kentucky secretary of state trying to take his job, and closes by wishing the state residents – including Grimes – a merry Christmas.

“So Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to Kentuckians all — especially Alison Lundergan Grimes, I’ll see you next fall,” he says.

Unmentioned at all was the possibility McConnell won’t be running against anyone in the fall. Challenger Matt Bevin, backed by tea party groups and former Sen. Jim DeMint’s Senate Conservatives Fund, is running at McConnell from the right, charging McConnell is an “establishment conservative” who’s too accommodating with President Obama’s Democrats.

McConnell and his campaign strategists didn’t forget to include Bevin, of course. They’re just hoping Kentucky GOP voters will forget he’s even there.
