Descrizione

From the founder of Kentucky Sports Radio and attorney Matt Jones, a withering, humorous look at how Mitch McConnell has been bad for Kentucky—and why he needs to be voted out in 2020.

They say all politics is local. In 2020, Mitch McConnell will have served five full terms as a US Senator. Thirty years. The Senate Majority leader's power is as undeniable as it is infuriating, and the people of Kentucky have had enough. Led by Matt Jones, they (and they alone) have the power to oust him from office.

How did Jones, a local boy turned attorney turned sports radio host come to shine the brightest light on McConnell's ineptitude? Simple—he knows Kentucky inside and out, and has used the state's love of sports as an entry point for showcasing how McConnell has failed his fellow citizens both economically and socially for three decades.

Entertaining, maddening, yet ultimately inspiring, these stories from Kentuckians in each of its 120 counties illustrate the Senate Majority leader's stunning shortcomings. Jones infuses his trademark wit and wisdom throughout, while also offering a beautiful portrait of a state with arguably the most untapped potential in our country.

Ultimately, the white-hot hatred for McConnell on the coasts is just white noise. Only the people of Kentucky can remove him from office. Here, Matt Jones demonstrates he has the influence, charisma, and institutional knowledge to lead the charge. He and his fellow Kentuckians have had enough—and they're ready for a fight.

    A revealing story of real people—in this case the different facets of Kentuckian communities—and how they are troubled or put out of perspective by the toxicity of political rhetorics, the media and campaign finance.

    Warning: While Matt’s jokes and Kentuckians will make you laugh and and feel good, you’ll also develop a deeper feeling of repugnance towards Mitch. Let’s be fair—you’ll really hate more his way of doing politics than the character per se... after all, who hates a cartoon turtle? Only evils can!

    Really worth a listen!
