Turtle-neck McConnell admits hypocrisy gleefully

If there's one person as deserving of a huge Karmic payback as Trump, it's Mitch McConnell, perhaps the most soulless American politician I've ever seen in action (and that takes in some territory).

Having screwed the former President out of a Supreme Court pick (to be fair, Obama should've simply seated Judge Garland and told Mitch to stuff it, but...) due to a completely imaginary 'rule' against seating a Justice in an election year, Mitch 'The Bitch' now admits he'd do exactly the opposite if a vacancy came up NEXT year under Trump:

'He was asked at a Chamber of Commerce luncheon: "Should a Supreme Court justice die next year, what will your position be on filling that spot?"

McConnell responded with a grin, "Oh, we'd fill it." '

I mean, this isn't exactly a SURPRISE, but it does reveal the man's naked partisanship and hypocrisy. If anyone doubted it.

        And I don't like the Senate system, where the Majority Leader has almost dictatorial control over the chamber. It needs reforming. I reiterate, however, that Mitch is an unusually sleazy, corrupt,... more

          ... who has almost dictatorial control over the chamber? Does it need reforming too? Oh, wait! That's your Aunt Pelosi. That's OK. Hypocrite. LOL

                  I'm well aware they're hypocrites, thanks. And double-talkers, and sometimes even crooks. I just don't think we should accept that state of affairs. I sure as hell wouldn't want the job. I'd try to... more
