    You don't have to approve of them, but if that's what the people of the state want, then they're not poorly represented.


    TBH, I have no idea how the folks in Kentucky feel about McConnell and Paul; they both are multi-term Senators. My only experience is with their positions on the national stage. From vowing to make Obama a “one term President,” to the SCOTUS pick and in to recent gate-keeping of bills to come before the Senate, McConnell has run interference for this excuse of an Administration.

    Paul is a hostage taker. He acts as a fly in the ointment and then he gets some concession and is all on board.

    I do admit to a distaste for both men based solely on reading and viewing news.

    As you point out, Kentucky seems to be happy; there is an election coming for at least one of them.

    Just saying, there's a difference between a state being "poorly represented" and having senators you think suck.

    If you're asking "is there any state with senators who suck worse," then all of your answers are going to be pretty much party line.
    The only reason to be anti-libertarian is there are people you want to control that you wouldn't be able to.

    Thanks for straightening me out! The answers to “what color is the moon,” will fall along party lines.

    I have to disagree, Pennsylvania sucks worse. Two biggest wimps in either party as Senators.
