KY Republican signals surrender in minimum wage fight

Lest anyone were to get the mistaken impression that the national Republicans were now going to start standing up for conservative principles, the news came yesterday that they are giving up the fight on minimum wage before it has even begun. According to Kentucky Pol Watchers (The Herald-Leader), our own Mitch McConnell (now Senate Republican Minority Leader) is saying that he is fine with the minimum wage hike of about two dollars proposed by Democrats.

Sen. Chamberlai... er, McConnell described the Democrats opening agenda as "easy stuff". Whoever said surrender was hard?
