McConnell behaved as if he needs testosterone injections. His minion in the press want everyone to know the steel in his spine, but it is more silly putty. His friends say other people call McConnell “Darth Vader.” Honestly, I’ve gotten on Lexis-Nexis. The only people ever saying McConnell is Darth Vader are McConnell’s friends. It’s only fitting though because Darth Vader, in control of everything, lost the Death Star twice to a rag tag group of Democrats . . . errrr . . . rebels.
And now Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) has made McConnell his gimp, only letting him out of the cage when Reid points at other Republicans and calls them “Butch.” It is all pathetic. It is also all predictable. McConnell never had any intention of fighting on this. Notice he announced his cave on the day the President vetoed the Keystone XL pipeline legislation hoping everyone would be distracted by that shiny object.
No, we are not distracted. About the only thing lamer than McConnell’s antics is Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) claiming the GOP can cave because one district court judge in Texas has issued an injunction against the President’s amnesty. They must think we are stupid. The last time the GOP had the courts fight their battle for them, Obamacare was found constitutional. The time before that, in a case named after Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), the Court upheld the Bipartisan Campaign Finance Reform Act.
Please call your member of Congress at (202) 224-3121 and tell him/her to please not act like a Senatorial eunuch and, instead, fight.
And in conclusion, given McConnell’s behavior, I find it deeply ironic the postal code for his state is KY.
