We finally get to impeach? There are no other options. Well, "No borders, no wall, no USA at all" is good. Also "No Pedo hate".

Ummmm

Non PC headline alert!

Metaphoric targeting is just like really shooting someone!

That is what people are saying. I mean, I would never say that but them People, they say that.

Interesting that Mitchell embraces the things they're planning on using against him.

That's PC run amok, donner.

How about aiming an AGM-84?

I live in Kentucky and will gladly vote against anyone but Mitch. She's smart, well-spoken and tough.

But I have to say, I am not digging McGrath's opening salvo. Mitch is keeping Trump from accomplishing his goals? That's the Democrats' message? F*** that. I'm sick to death of milquetoast Dems.

And I also don't think it's going to convince Republican voters to switching sides.

Is there anything to be gained in states outside Kentucky by trashing McConnell?

McConnell is in the Federal Government.

So. There is if you're a democrat.

McConnell is the worst Senate Majority leader in my lifetime. (or best depending on your perspective)

Well, McConnell is hard to love no matter where you live. He was not always such an evil ----. But he gets more partisan and power-obsessed with every passing year.

Clown, does trashing McConnell get the Democratic Party anywhere?

Outside of Democrats who already hate him, who else cares?

Let me bring my question to a more narrow point....does addressing the failure of McConnell help the Democratic nominee for president in 2020? Does it help in Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, etc??

Does it help the Democrats pick up seats in Congress outside of Kentucky?

I would call it a boomerang ....

It's a completely different issue than the presidency.

McConnell has been a thorn in the side of Democrats, and America, since 2010. (I believe that's when the Republicans got control of the senate during the Obama Presidency)

It's not him alone, it's the fact that the Republicans control the Senate. But, eliminating McConnell will help Democrats, a lot.

He stonewalled Obama, literally blocked him from appointing judges and fought him every step of the way during his presidency. Now, during the Trump administration he has appointed more judges and made it easier for the senate majority to appoint judges. I've watched some of them getting interviewed, they're a bunch of conservative morons.

IMO, he's destroyed the judicial branch and you can see the effects across the nation as civil rights are getting stripped.

Pointing out the fact that Cocaine Mitch abuses our political system is important to inform the voting public. The folks that don't care, or can't understand this, are hopelessly partisan and frankly, stupid.

FYI - The Republicans took the House in 2010. They didn't take the Senate until 2014.

Sounds like #TheResistance.

Now, during the Trump administration he has appointed more judges and made it easier for the senate majority to appoint judges.

Actually, it was the Democrats who eliminated the filibuster for judicial nominees and cabinet appointments. A LOT of lefties cheered the move and I warned them then, be careful what you wish for. The GOP considered nuking the filibuster during Bush but the Gang of 14 (7 Senators from each party) came up with a compromise and it was scuttled. A LOT of conservatives were pissed and I said, "You'll be happy in a couple of years if Dems take the Senate (they did) and Hillary is in the WH (it was Obama, but same effect).

IMO, he's destroyed the judicial branch and you can see the effects across the nation as civil rights are getting stripped.

Please name for me a single civil right that has been stripped by Trump appointees.

Democrats can't trash McConnell any more than he has already trashed himself and Republican. His behavior in the Senate has been shameful to the point even the few honest Republicans still alive will admit. Democrats should not have to bring down McConnell, decent Republicans should have already done that. If Democrats had a leader as evil as McConnell we would have dealt with him or her. But then Democrats have to actually try to be on the side of the people of this nation and not just the billionaires.

Or he did something really wrong and cozying up to powerful people is the only way to stay out of prison.

Hardly. But I realize you've got to check the false equivalency box on your righty falsehoods checklist.

Hardly my ass. Opposition parties act like opposition parties. Republicans did it to Obama and Dems have been doing it in earnest to Trump.

This is political reality and I don't get all butthurt all over it like you.

So much projection. The DR Cons would be a great study for social Sciences 101 "butt hurt".

Bruce,

Have you ever seen me complain about #TheResistance? Ever?

I haven't.

I'm sure there are plenty of Republicans/cons who do, but I'm not in that camp.

You're going to have to let this go, JeffJ. I'm afraid that you're a conservative - one of the few small select groupings of people who it is ok to paint with the actions of other members of that group. I know that you're thinking that it's not right, it's wrong to judge someone, not by their own actions and words, but by the actions of people who look like them or are labelled like them, but those are outdated ideas. You need to progress towards an understanding that those rules are more subjective...your particular sub-group is the subject of those rules.

As a Kentuckian, do you really think that Kentucky voters will want to vote out a Senator who is the Majority Leader? Having the most powerful Senator representing your State is very valuable for your State, and putting a neophyte in his place (regardless of party affiliation) is a serious step down for Kentucky.

Okay, that's fine but my question is that how many folks did you just describe right there?

I think an argument can be made that it's close to 99% of the voting public, outside of Kentucky.

Perhaps some of you think folks outside of Kentucky really care all that much about a Senator from another state.

Every member of the house and the senate is a piece of ----.
Especially to the people not represented by them.
Most recent opinion polls on Congress I could find:
Approve 19%
Disapprove 78%
No opinion 3%

Everyone thinks the other guy is a piece of ----. You're no different.

Right! Liberals never get broad brushed into groupings. Conservatives are the victims! Always the victims!!

By the way, conservatives aren't a small select group. They're a large portion of society.
