Great work by Paducah, KY NBC station WPSD-TV. While setting up for a remote interview with House Minority Leader and KY Senator Mitch McConnell from DC, the station captured this priceless down-low conversation between McConnell and KY Senator Rand Paul after the interview, with the NBC News remote camera still running, and WPSD still recording on their end, via satellite.

McConnell >> “I’m all wired up here.”
Paul >> “I just did CNN and I just go over and over again ‘We’re willing to compromise.’ ‘We’re willing to negotiate.’ I don’t think they poll tested ‘We won’t negotiate.’ I think it’s awful for them to say that over and over again.”
Paul is referring to Democrats saying they won’t negotiate over the bill linking the debt ceiling to funding for the Affordable Care Act.
Paul again to McConell >> “I think if we keep saying ‘We wanted to defund it. We fought for that and now we’re willing to compromise on this,’ I think they can’t. We’re gonna. We, I think. Well, I know we don’t want to be here. But we’re gonna win this I think.”
WPSD's news director, Bill Evans, said neither Senator’s office has contacted the station for comment.
