Worst Week in Washington, Friday, May 21, 2010

May 21, 2010

It's an embarrassment of riches this week for nominees for the Worst Week in Washington prize. The Fix blogger Chris Cillizza revealed his pick in a live video chat.

The Senate Minority Leader watched as his hand picked candidate was squashed in a primary by Rand Paul. Then Paul went on to create just the sort of controversy that McConnell had hoped to avoid by backing the other guy in the primary.

Who were this week's runners up?
