Behind the Ad: Pro-McConnell group runs an anti-ObamaCare spot

By Richard K. Barry

(Another installment in our extensive "Behind the Ad" series)

Who: Kentucky Opportunity Coalition

Where: Lexington and Louisville

What's going on: In places like Kentucky it would seem that people like the idea of going bankrupt when they get sick. Or maybe they are stupid enough to believe ads like this one that tell them that affordable healthcare is the worst thing that has ever happened to America.

It is true that many provisions of the health care law will go into effect in 2014 and that implementation of such a significant program will no doubt come with some glitches. The Republicans are hoping to make something out of that.

Politics is always about timing and Republicans better attack now before Americans start liking the idea of having health care, which I think they will.

So far, Democrats don't have a candidate to run against McConnell though Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes seems to be their best chance, if she runs.

McConnell is a nasty piece of work and will be hard to beat, though he shouldn't be.
