After enduring a disastrous debate performance (and subsequent media hits) by its shining star Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes, the DSCC has officially gone media-dark in Kentucky:

After a significant investment in support of Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, the DSCC had not reserved time for the final three weeks of the race and, as of today, is no longer on the air.

“The DSCC has now spent more than 2 million in Kentucky and continues to make targeted investments in the ground game while monitoring the race for future investments, but is currently not on the air in the state,” a DSCC official told CQ Roll Call.

McConnell has held small but consistent leads in nearly every recent public poll.

We all know that Grimes made an idiot of herself by invoking her Constitutional right to not be embarrassed by her previous support of Obama, but apparently things are so bad on the ground that even the media has given up hope and decided to enjoy the Grimes campaign’s downfall.

Today’s dose of schadenfreude, via the Washington Free Beacon:

ABC’s Jon Karl questioned Earnest after he “boldly” admitted that he voted for his boss.

“Do you believe you’ve violated the sanctity of the ballot box by telling us who you voted for?” Karl asked.

“I’ll leave that for you guys to decide,” Earnest said.

Fox’s Ed Henry took a different approach, asking Earnest what Grimes’ silence says about President Obama.

Even Earnest could not help but join in on poking fun at Grimes

“I’ll tell you that I voted for the president,” Earnest said with a smirk.

If it’s wrong to be enjoying this way, way too much, then I don’t want to be right.
