Dyche is a Louisville attorney and McConnell biographer, who is considered by man to be the Senator's unofficial spokesman in the city.</p><p>From <a href="http://www.courier-journal.com/article/20121120/COLUMNISTS11/311200024/John-David-Dyche-Republicans-should-find-credible-foe-Yarmuth?nclick_check=1"><em>The C-J</em>:</a></p><blockquote><p>It must also gall Yarmuth that McConnell ignores him. Yarmuth is to McConnell as a yapping toy poodle is to an oblivious Great Dane.</p><p>So why doesn’t Yarmuth put his practically infinite money where his practically incessant mouth is and channel his jealousy of McConnell into his own race against him? He might then get the debate with McConnell for which he mewls. Meanwhile, McConnell negotiates directly with the president, not insignificant congressmen.</p></blockquote><p>Ouch!</p><p> Tue, 20 Nov 2012 20:54:00 +0000 Phillip M.
