“At CPAC, Pat Caddell called Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) “the Ambrose Burnside of American politics.””

Yeah, it took Pat Caddell, the guy who ran Jimmah’s campaign, to point out that this guy is a worthless POS! And all those “revelations” about GOPe “political consultants” was spot on as well. Good for Pat. Even he doesn’t like the RATs today, and seems to care more about the country than most of the GOP “leaders” do!

McConnell will vow until he is safely reelected a senator and reelected to repubican leader (whether minority or majority). Then he will go back to undermining conservatism.

McConnell and Cornyn are the supposed “leaders” yet their junior senators, Paul and Cruz, are the ones leading.

Next year we can remove both McConnell and Cornyn so there can be new leadership.

We need to pray for President Obama AND McConnell and all of Congress to get saved.

All else aside, how exactly does he plan on doing this? At least for the next (almost) 4 years, he would need a veto-proof majority (67 Senators, 290 Reps). Factoring in gerrymandering on the House side, especially, that’s just not going to happen any time soon.

Might have been a couple of grumpy old men, pissed about some kid rocking the boat and threatening their cushy jobs...

“Once we understand they Royalty and we are Subjects, it gets easier”


You are unfortunately right but it is within our power to push back.

Highly condensed true story:

I was doing a trade show in Philly and threw out my back. Went back to the hotel but a large black Kojak looking guy was blocking the elevator.

I said, I guess you are holding that for someone more important than me to which he replied: “Why yes for a US Senator”

As I pushed his bloated body out of the way and entered the elevator I said, that just makes him a public servant and my employee.

We are only subjects if we cower to them. They are our servants and it is well past time to put them in their place. They know this and it is the real reason behind gun control.

McConnell’s buds in the House could have done this recently by including no funding for nobamcare in the Continuing Resolution. But NOOOOOOOOOO. Can’t have that.

The mentally diseased liberals might get upset if we did that. The blatantly leftist press might get upset if we did that. And we shirley don’t want anyone upset with us. Lordy no, a fate worse than death.

We need BALLZ in the House!

I hope he plans on replacing Obamacare with the medical plan he has.

Mitch is afraid that Rand Paul will become the senior senator from Kentucky.

This is the same dipstick who wants to send a “petition” to Obama requesting that he [Obama] please stop taking away the Senate’s (i.e. legislative branch’s) powers.

With the equipment he’s got, he better stuff a sock down his pants if he wants people to think he is a male of the species.

In another month or so you’ll probably have the opportunity to help that happen by donating to Ashley Judd.

I think the GOP wants loonie Ashley to run just to force us to vote for Harry Reid's bitch.

Without a complete whack job as the Dem candidate, Mitch could be vulnerable to another Rand Paul type in the primary.

Yep, who says Mitch has to go up against Judd? Primary him and we win twice.
