Given that McConnell spoke for a couple of minutes towards the end of Rand Paul's last filibuster on the domestic use of drones, I believe him.
As with last time, he does wait until the parade is already in progress and being well received before he decides to join it.
Still, there are worse things he could be doing. He could be going on MSNBC calling Sen Paul and his colleagues whacko birds.
I think he still needs to primaried, or, at the very least, taken out of the position of Senate leadership. But, this is probably not the time to beat him up. I'm sure he'll give us plenty of opportunities for that.
There’s reports someone secretly taped a meeting of his staff in which they were discussing (article says “attacking”) Ashley Judd. I think they were discussing her religious views and mental health issues.
