When the Empry Dress Fits, Stop Demanding Apologies

Jared Smith at the Kentucky Democratic Party is forwarding around a week-old email from Ditch Mitch seeking signatures on a petition asking Mitch McConnell to apologize for calling Alison Lundergan Grimes "an empty dress."

Sigh. Whatever international award for empty campaign gestures that make your candidate look weak and stupid the Kentucky Democratic Party is apparently working toward, KDP's gotta be the front-runner.

Hey, Jared: Instead of demanding a meaningless apology for a standard campaign tactic - making both you and your candidate look pathetic - how about proving the motherfuckers wrong with some campaign substance instead of the empty dress Grimes has presented so far?

Oh and Alison? That advice you're getting from Steve Israel at the DCCC to dodge questions on Syria? It lost you the chance to beat McConnell to the punch and look like a dress that might actually fit Kentucky's Democratic voters.
