Does Alison Lundergan Grimes think voters are that stupid?

Frankly, I can't recall ever seeing something like this.  It's being called "40 painful seconds":

Alison Lundergan Grimes (D), who is trying to unseat Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) this fall, appeared before the Louisville Courier-Journal editorial board on Thursday to make her pitch for their endorsement.

The life-long Democrat, whose father represented Kentucky for the party in the state House and who herself has been on the ballot in the state on the Democratic ticket, was asked a simple question.

Did she vote for President Obama in 2008 and 2012?   

And she didn't answer. Repeatedly.

Did Alison Lundergran Grimes really think that we didn't know whom she voted for in 2008 and 2012?  Did someone tell her that undecided voters would change their minds because she wouldn't say that she voted for President Obama?

Also, how you can believe a word she is saying now?  How loyal is this lady? 

Of course, the bottom line is that President Obama is toxic in Kentucky:

Alison Lundergan Grimes, Kentucky's Democratic Senate candidate, is even running ads where she declares "I'm not Barack Obama."

College Democrats volunteering for Grimes campaign have had to cover-up their Obama T-shirts before canvassing in Kentucky. 

We may look back at the "40 painful seconds" that re-elected Sen. McConnell!
