    McConnell says the Senate will follow the rules — the Senate’s, not his. I’ll believe it when I see it.

      Yeah, but this is still something. He’s _not_ following the White House playbook. He’s not sure where his ultimate political advantage will be.

      Erik Rensberger —
      McConnell has made believability unreliable, fiction factual and lies truthful. He’s been projecting the man he supports, not the institution he represents. He’s a Trump supporter, not a US senator. I don’t trust him a bit, but let’s see if he can prove me — and many others like me — wrong.

      Erik Rensberger He’s up for re-election in 2020. Kentucky’s eyes are on you, Mitch.

      Here’s the million dollar question: have Kentucky’s eyes gone blind to the truth of McConnell’s corrupt behavior?

  9. Moscow Mitch, the man who famously filibustered his own proposal on the Senate floor.

  10. We really need to stop playing with words .

  11. McConnell came out of his casket, must need blood.
