Two degrees of separation

I see that Mitch McConnell defeated Tea Party challenger, Matt Bevin, last night to procure Kentucky's GOP nomination for Senate. It's not the superannuated McConnell who's caught my eye in this, but his challenger, for Matt Bevin is the same guy who got $200K from CT after his bell factory in East Hampton, CT burned to the ground: another typical "keep your hands off my Medicare" Tea Partier who badmouths government largesse, but is only too willing to accept it when it's given to him. The worst part of this whole thing is that I GAVE MONEY to this cretin after the awful fire occurred. Moreover, I encouraged the local chapter of the NHS to do the same. If I'd known what his political leanings were, I might have been a bit more discreet.
