Mitch Already Turtling Up

Seems Mitch The Turtle is already shelling out big bucks to attack Ashley Judd in ads, some 20 months before the election and without Judd even throwing her hat in on the Dem primary yet.  Scared much, man?

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has bought six figures worth of airtime to back a television ad campaign beginning on Thursday. The buy marks the start of what could be one of the cycle’s most contentious races.

McConnell’s ads, up a year and eight months before his name appears on a general election ballot, will air for a week in the Lexington, Ky., and Louisville, Ky., media markets. The buy is in the “low six figures,” a McConnell aide told CQ Roll Call.

Democrats framed the early ad buy as a sign of weakness.

“Running campaign commercials almost two years before an election is an unprecedented admission of fear for a sitting senator,” Dan Logsdon, the chairman of the state Democratic Party, said in a statement.

Well no foolin'.   Yes, Mitch is scared, because he knows he's vulnerable.  Hell, he might not even survive his own primary at this rate.

In his shell, alone and scared...
