#MoscowMictch McConnell suddenly believes it matters deeply when someone is unfair to someone else, or at least when he believes the country is being unfair to him. From a report in the Hill, #MoscowMitch was back on the floor of the Senate, insisting that people stop being so mean, and act “fairly.”
“It’s modern-day McCarthyism,” said the man who threatened to call out President Obama as “political” when Obama wanted to issue a dual press release about Russian attempts to ratfck the 2016 presidential election.
“You know, I can laugh about things like the ‘Grim Reaper,’ but calling me Moscow Mitch is over the top,” said the man who blamed president Obama for failing to stop the Russians from assisting the Trump campaign, members of whom met with the Trump campaign over 100 times according to the Mueller report.
“This is what we’re up against with the hard left today in America,” said the man who blocked legislation aimed at protecting American elections by funding efforts to monitor Russia as well as requiring paper ballots. And, we might note, said the man who sees anyone to the left of him as the “hard left.”
“They are lying when they suggest that either party is against defending our democracy,” said the man who allowed a vote, supported by Republicans, to remove sanctions against a Russian oligarch who then penned a deal to build an aluminum plant in McConnell’s home state.
The Democrats would “say anything and do anything.” said the man who has blocked the confirmation of a needed fourth commissioner to the FEC, leaving the FEC unable to enforce election law violations.
“Unbelievable for a Cold Warrior like me who spent a career standing up to the Russians to be given a moniker like that.” says the man who apparently doesn’t know that the Cold War ended almost twenty years ago, and has since done his best to ensure that the Trump-Russian agenda is near the only thing passed through the Senate.
He is literally whining, about the unfairness of it all, which sounds pretty snowflaky to me. It also sounds like someone quite worried that the moniker might stick, and thus put him at risk of going down with Trump next year. Should the entire lid be blown open with regard to Russian funds spread throughout the Republican party, people might immediately recall the #MoscowMitch label, and treat our happy warrior so unfairly in holding him accountable.
