Dearest B&P readers,

If you’re his friend on the facebook (or a B&P fan) then you probably saw a flurry of messages last night about Joe being on the Maddow Show. Alas… larger entities interceded and his appearance was not to be.

But no such luck for you Republican Kentuckians tonight… Joe is scheduled to appear on Ms. Maddow’s excellent MSNBC program this evening (you know, Wednesday… today, man, today!) at 9PM. Likely in the first half hour.

So tune in and pray to whom/whatever you pray to that Obama doesn’t conquer al Qaeda and that Jeb Bush doesn’t announce his candidacy so that Joe doesn’t get bumped this time.

As for the topic… oh, dear Kentucky, you’ll just have to wait and see like the rest of America.

Rachel Maddow looks at Kentucky’s failing bridges…

As discussed yesterday, Mitch McConnell and Kentucky’s Republican Delegation are dead-set on blocking Obama’s jobs plan with the single goal of seeing Barack Obama fail.

If America fails along the way… who cares?

And if the bridges into Kentucky fail… who cares.

Here’s what one Republican House aide said over the weekend:

“Obama is on the ropes; why do we appear ready to hand him a win?”

Anyway… Kentucky’s crumbling bridges (and the rest of the nation’s crumbling bridges) and the Republican Party’s obstinant opposition to this really simple idea (bridges should not collapse) caught the attention of Rachel Maddow last night:

Rachel Maddow on Rand’s Law

Rand’s Law appears to be catching on in GOPland these days. Here’s Rachel from Friday, showing how Rand says that quoting him in context is the dishonest work of his internet enemies who want the government to break into his house at night, install a communist toilet, and enslave him:

Maddow’s been all over it, and the authorities have their eyes on white supremacists.

Rachel Maddow had the night off, so she sent in the Wolff.

And the Wolff brought dragons. And a shout out. And God looked upon them, and it was good:

OK, so I was a little giddy last night…

Hold onto those reins tight, Guvnah. It’s gonna be a bumpy ride.

Can anyone believe anything that Mitch McConnell says ever again?

If there’s one thing that I’ve consistently said about Mitch McConnell since I started the McConnell beat in 2007, it is that Mitch McConnell has no ideology. When it comes to government policy, the man believes in nothing. The only thing he cares about is his own political power, and he will pick and choose whatever ideology and position that furthers that power.

Last week, we learned that Mitch McConnell was in September of 2006 privately telling President Bush to start withdrawing from Iraq to help Republicans in the elections that fall, while simultaneously in public calling Democrats al-Qaeda appeasers and cut and runners for advocating the same foreign policy position.

While this shocking act of hypocrisy and basic scumery was not the least bit shocking to us, it has to be to the rest of the country. And perhaps more importantly, the rest of his colleagues and the rest of Republican voters in Kentucky. His fellow Republicans in the Senate, and his Republican constitutents back home have to ask themselves:

When Mitch McConnell is talking to me, how do I know he’s not lying?

First of all, the “because his lips are moving” joke is moot, as Mitch doesn’t possess these. But as Republican leadership in the Senate and House move forward, don’t they have to wonder this? As we move closer to the 2014 primary election here in Kentucky for Mitch McConnell’s seat, don’t voters have to ask themselves this question?

I can give them the answer, but they’ll likely have to figure it out for themselves. Perhaps a few of them already have.

Here’s Rachel Maddow once again laying out Mitch McConnell’s dirty laundry for all to see, with the help of a reporter from A Kentucky Newspaper:

Mitch McConnell: Big Hypocrite, or Biggest Hypocrite?

Yes, it’s difficult for most folks who don’t know Mitch McConnell as well as we do to fully wrap their head around the fact that he was calling Democrats al-Qaeda appeasing cut and runners for advocating the same position that Mitch was advocating himself to President Bush. At the same exact time.

Here’s Rachel Maddow with the video evidence, laying out the case that Mitch McConnell is so… (earmuffs)… Mitch McConnell. Pardon me for salty language.

First Jim Gray gets a shout out fromPerez Hilton (my biggest chuckle of the day), now he gets one from Rachel Maddow. Our awesome new mayor is quickly becoming a national star.
