NRSC Spokesman Calls McConnell Opponent Grimes An ‘Empty Dress’ Who ‘Babbles Incoherently’


A spokesman for the National Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee on Wednesday called Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes, who’s running to unseat Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in 2014, an “empty dress” who “babbles incoherently.”

“Alison Lundergan Grimes seems incapable of articulating her own thoughts, and faced with questions, either directly parrots the talking points handed to her by [Sen.] Chuck Schumer or she babbles incoherently and stares blankly into the camera as though she’s a freshman in high school struggling to remember the CliffsNotes after forgetting to read her homework assignment,” Brad Dayspring, the group’s communications director, told The Hill.

Democrats quickly sought to tie the comment to McConnell, calling it “despicably offensive” and “degrading.”
