Behind the public facade of McConnell being all in on Kav, Treason Turtle knows that R voters tend to vote best when they're voting angry.
Repubs got their best polling news in two years this week. The potential for a Kav loss woke the base.
In ordinary times, I'd see the push to vote on Kav as a dire sign.
Today though, not so fast...
A loss here would be a win in 30 days.
All of us on the left, jubilant at a bullet dodged and justice served, will do a victory lap... and that video will get looped and looped and looped until the midterms.
No one likes to lose - especially losers.
We might be getting a little played here, folks.
Sometimes a designed loss isn't a defeat; it's a tactic.
