The Lincoln Project knows how to make excellent Anti Republican Ads.

Of course, a group made up of former Republicans would probably know the best way to create them.

This time the ad targets Senate Majority Leader, Enemy of the People, and Political Prince of Darkness  Moscow Mitch McConnell.

This one minute segment is brilliant and ingenious.

Not because it does not focus on Obstructionist Mitch McConnell’s blockage of progressive legislation and liberal-minded judges (including Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland or his throwing the Constitution out the door during the Trump Impeachment Senate Trial.

It is effective because it portrays McConnell as a Senator out to enrich himself while sacrificing the people of Kentucky. They even brand him RichMitch which is just as catchy as Moscow Mitch.

The ad shows that while RichMitch McConnell, in his 35 years in Washington DC has amassed a fortune of about $34,000,000, Kentucky is 40th in the nation in job opportunity, 45th in education, and 43rd in healthcare.

The ad concludes that McConnell will do nothing if he wins reelection other than further enriching himself.

This is brilliant because it shows the people of Kentucky that Mitch McConnell, for the last 35 years, has not been a public servant working to improve conditions for Kentuckians. He has only improved the lives of himself and his wealthy patrons.

RichMitch must go.
