Teabagger Challenger for Mitch McConnell?

It looks like be-wattled and chinless Mitch McConnell will have a challenger to his right, after all:

Senate Majority Leader[sic – really?!] Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) could see a primary challenge from local businessman Matt Bevin, who sources say is reaching out to Tea Party groups in the state to gauge support for a 2014 Senate run.

Bevin is the owner of Bevin Brothers Manufacturing, a Connecticut bell-making company founded 160 years ago. He previously worked as CEO of Integrity Asset Management, an investment management firm with offices in Kentucky.

His personal wealth would be an advantage running against McConnell, who has more than $7 million cash on hand and is is actively fundraising in preparation for 2014.

A recent survey from Democratic firm Public Policy Polling revealed [McConnell] to be the least popular senator in the nation, and a poll from Republican firm Harper Polling showed one prominent potential Democratic contender, actress Ashley Judd, just nine percentage points behind him.

The Teabaggers are the Frankenstein monster, attacking their creator. This is going to be fun to watch, but in the short run, expect ol’ Mitch to go hard right (à la Lindsey Graham) to butch it up to the mouth-breathing paste-eaters in his old Kentucky home.

    Most Republicans and all Teabag Patriots are ding-a-lings, but as the owner of a actual bell foundry, Matt Bevin, along with the Koch Brothers, could actually be considered a ding-a-ling creator.

    Did your editor die to, Ten? Jesus, scared me to death when I saw the “Majority.” Do you mean there is some ass rocket out there in “Keeentuckee” that has actually found room to get to the right of the Turtle?
    I am forever amazed////
