Overnight a tweet surfaced of a bunch of teenage supporters of Mitch McConnell at a county fair in Kentucky. You had a minor outrage because they were supporting Brett Kavanaugh.

You had more outrage over their mock cemetery:

And then they hit the ceiling with this:

Examples:

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, herself, had to pile on:

This is freakin nuts. We’re talking about a cardboard cutout, for heaven’s sake. No sane person, unless they are under the illusion that their image is a sacred object, should really care about this stuff. It has been done from time immemorial and I think the cut out was damned lucky to escape with a chaste peck on the cheek. Mitch McConnell’s campaign lost no time in responding in the only way possible, but basically telling these cretins to get a life (or FOAD, YMMV).

McConnell’s campaign is right. This is fake outrage and it is ginned up by the left to try to build a narrative that all Republicans are pro-rape white supremacists. It is dishonest. And there is every sign that it just isn’t going to work.
