Doubling Down On Dumbass Will Get You Fired

Mitch McConnell’s Campaign Manager Resigns | The Daily Caller

McConnell’s hiring of Benton was widely viewed as smart move to attract Paul’s supporters in the state.

But Benton famously caused trouble for the campaign after audio surfaced of him saying he was just “holding his nose” to get McConnell elected before he could focus on Rand Paul’s 2016 campaign.

“Between you and me, I’m sort of holding my nose for two years because what we’re doing here is going to be a big benefit to Rand in ’16, so, that’s my long vision,” Benton said in the recording.

He didn’t resign, he got canned. And I hope Rand Paul doesn’t take him back. He’s apparently too stupid, and too much of a loose cannon, to be involved in a professional political campaign.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
