Nice Try, Mitch

This week saw the latest chapter in the long history of Mitch McConnell's saying one thing and doing another. Sorry Mitch, but we already know how you undermined Steve Robertson's GOTV efforts during Alice Forgy Kerr's campaign. This time, we will not believe your claim to support Robertson when you refused to commit to supporting Governor Fletcher's decision to name him chairman any longer than November. Spare us, if you support him then make the commitment. Heck, its only until the Senate primary and then we know he can remain chairman since our nominee since Larry Forgy will leave him in place:
It's unclear if he will continue to serve as chairman after the November
election or if U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell, who is up for re-election in 2008,
will install his own person.

Larry Cox, McConnell's state director, said the senator supports
Fletcher's choice of Robertson. But he said the question of whether he would
remain in the job is still being discussed.
