One day after the muffled, clumsy launch of a senate campaign for Ky. Sec. of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, her opponent Mitch McConnell released this autotune parody of Grimes’ affinity for first person pronouns.
Here’s part of the news release from the Republican Party of Kentucky:
In case you missed it… Team Mitch released a video today to assist Alison Lundergan Grimes with her campaign roll out. So…why are they helping?
“We hate to see someone flounder so badly, so we decided to give Alison a helping hand,” said campaign manager Jesse Benton.
“Alison Lundergan Grimes spent months agonizing over whether she was interested in a Senate run, but after doing her “due diligence,” she failed to prepare any materials or message to announce her campaign. She had no signs, no website, no speech, no policy positions, nothing.”
“We, at Team Mitch, are nothing if not magnanimous, so decided to welcome her to the race with what we imagine her campaign theme song might be. The song highlights her signature initiative to “preserve, protect, and promote Alison Lundergan Grimes,” and is entitled ‘What Rhymes with Alison Lundergan Grimes?’
“We’ll get to work on a campaign website.”
