I love these to-and-‘fro political ads. They remind me of the “answer songs” of the 50’s, when artists would “reply” to a hit record. That said, there’s more editorial content in Big Mama Thornton’s Hound Dog than either Alison Lundergan Grimes’ “I’m not Barack Obama” ad or Mitch McConell’s reply above. The fact of the matter: I can’t find any evidence that Grimes voted for gun control, other than supporting the Democratic platform which, as we pointed out before, calls for a new “assault weapons” ban and the usual common nonsense gun laws. Then again, back in 1991, the NRA-supported sitting Senator from Kentucky voted for the Joe Biden-sponsored Crime Bill S. 1241. That bill would have imposed a waiting period for handguns and a ban on 14 types of “assault style weapons.” McConnell has also refused to say whether or not he owns a gun. The ball’s in your court, Grimes.
