Responding to the ridiculousness that has been Alison Lundergan Grimes’ lack-of-an-answer to a simple question, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer believes the Kentucky Democrat’s response to whether she voted for President Barack Obama is “preposterous.”

Krauthammer went on to say the answer is “a sign of how much of a rookie she is.”

“In Kentucky, it was once said that Lincoln said about the Civil War: ‘I’d like to have God on my side…but I must have Kentucky.’ If Republicans can’t win Kentucky in this year with all factors going in their favor: unpopularity, the president, things abroad, things at home not looking good, and with a fairly weak candidate.”

“Grimes’ answer was preposterous. The idea that because people can’t be forced to disclose the vote in the ballot box, there’s a constitutional requirement that you not disclose it is simply ridiculous. And that she would double down on it is simply a sign of how much of a rookie she is. So I’m not surprised that the DSCC’s pulling out. It’s a race they’re not going to win, but the face that it’s close indicates Republicans are doing a lot worse this year, even though I think they’ll get a majority, than they should be doing.”
