Famous Kentucky politician Henry Clay, if he were alive today, would be so proud that three candidates (and their super PACs) are about to spend the yearly income of more than 4,300 Kentuckians in their campaigns for the U.S. Senate.
Seriously though, what will the Tea Parties say when their hero Rand Paul either stumps for McConnell, the face of "establishment Republicans," and/or refuses to endorse McConnell's rival from the Tea Parties, businessman Matt Bevin? Won't they feel just a teensy-weensy bit manipulated and taken for granted in Paul and McConnell's game of thrones?
