Going to run to a non-extradition country before the Muller report drops?
 
2019-03-15 04:06:40 PM  
Not if but when. Couldn't he do us all a favor and leave now? Maybe Bevin would appoint himself senator and Drew could be Governor

Why don't we link to the real article instead of a tiny snippet of it?
 
2019-03-15 04:09:08 PM  
Oh because it's paywalled.

Well, a snippet article about an opinion piece will have to do
 
2019-03-15 04:18:09 PM  
Go retire in Russia, you treasonous POS.

/And die soon.

In order to "sacrifice his integrity," McConnell would need to have some integrity.

You're on a site where people spend significant effort to make pithy comments in response to Trump tweets. A snippet article saying nothing more than "Republican bad" is like War and Peace to these people.

too bad he would never consider doing anything honorable for the country on his way out, even if he announced he was going to retire

Title: McConnell might flee the Senate in humiliation after sacrificing his integrity 'on the Trump altar'

This assumes a great deal that he ever had any integrity to begin with. He is the kind of old, conservative, backwoods, republican in line with Jesse Helms (just not quite as open in his racist ways) who would have left any integrity and morals behind when he ran for office. Just what Kentucky wanted 35 years ago, hopefully not any more.

Every day I make sure to eat healthy and exercise so I can be alive to take a big shiat on his grave.

And he can get out anytime. Now is good. I'm not holding him back.

While I understand the intention, Wouldn't it be better if you ate nothing but taco bell,mountain dew,coffee, beer and cigarettes, so you would do much more damage to his grave?

If I eat like that I'll never make it to an age where I can.

You only have to eat that garbage for a day or two before the act.

Do it. For America.

Until then, stay fit and healthy, so you're ready for your duty*. For America.

I really wish there was a way to sue this asshole to repay the money that went into curing him of polio. With interest.
 
2019-03-15 04:44:13 PM  
I really love the articles about what someone "might do"...
I might take a schitt. I might have earlier, and I might do it again... eventually. (need to hydrate)

Mitch might try to pass one more abomination of legislature just before a flood of indeterminate cash hits his fund, and then he can safely retire knowing that he got his.
Kinda like Ryan... fark them all.

/never forget

Meanwhile, back in Realityville, he's got another ~70 circuit court judges ready for their lifetime appointments and 53 votes in the Senate to get them through.

McConnell is going nowhere.
 
2019-03-15 04:52:06 PM  
McConnell isn't "spineless."

He wants this shiat.
 
2019-03-15 04:52:07 PM  
Mitch retire? Why? Where did this rumor come from? Is there any substance to it at all or is it just wishes and unicorn farts?

I don't see him going anywhere until he's voted out or dies, and he's not going to get voted out he's got way too much money behind him for that.

2019-03-15 04:57:19 PM  
Flee? You mean retire with a pension, platinum healthcare and the millions he's raked in through the legal self-dealing Congresscritters get to do?

Ya, like others above you posted...he's not going anywhere yet.
 
2019-03-15 04:58:59 PM  
He'd better flee the nation.
 
2019-03-15 05:05:51 PM  
McConnell is a verrrrrrry old man.

Now, that's a one disturbing facial expression... Is he a high-functioning autistic, or maybe a psychopath who has no concept what does the "smile" mean? Looks like he learned how to do it from some book...
 
2019-03-15 05:06:26 PM  
He's not going to flee in shame, he's going to leave after he's completed his lifetime goal of packing the court.

These people?  People using this site? Like you as you make your unoriginal unfunny comment?  Those people?  Yeah I don't like those people.

This is all speculation. Yes, he's hated by almost everyone in the US, yes, he gets heckled whenever he visits his home town in KY, but somehow this soulless asshole keeps getting elected. And now that he's the majority leader, he's keeping that position by any means necessary, even if it means burning down Congress. People like him tend to live until they're 100, sadly.

He's staying in the Senate until the day after he's dead. By then this country will be beyond saving. ( ._.)

Yeah, but even that movie never made me want to punch Dana Carvey.

Just hearing someone say Mitch's name makes me violent.

Most large turtles live that long. The scarier part is that they can still breed at that age.

Yeah, I submitted it earlier without realizing that. I just try to make a point to link to the original article instead of the Raw Story link and it backfired this time.

Isn't his wife a Chinese Citizen?  He's got a "get out of country before the indictments hit" card right there.

I suffer from chronic depression and crooked teeth. I've been known to practice smiling in a mirror because smiling is socially necessary. Every time I see a photo of myself, I realize how crushingly terrible I am at smiling.

I would beat Mitch six ways to Sunday in a smiling contest.
 
2019-03-15 06:00:56 PM  
There have been rumors that he wouldn't run again for at least a year.  What makes this one any different?
