You do NOT get to walk back your tacit approval of the anti-vax, anti-mask crowd, you murderous piece of rotting pond scum.

Exactly, if he and the rest of the republican leadership had been right out there from the beginning talking about the vaccine and other steps.  It might have been different.  But no, he sat silently by.  Now it's too goddamn late.

Did you see who your guys voted for last time? Did you notice they actually committed a terrorist assault against the United States to try and keep him in power?

You didn't think those stupid f*cking assholes would be stupid f*cking assholes?

They pull the fear and anger levers so often they dont realize what they are creating. That bubble is stupidly thick.

They initially saw it as something that was going to kill the urban centers (aka blue areas) and was fine with it. Not just fine but did everything they could to make it worse. Then once it started killing their voters they started panicking. They have been selling their followers a line of bullshiat for so long that they're finding it difficult to deprogram them to do the bare minimum to protect themselves.

Let's be completely clear here, they were thrilled when the coronavirus was killing the libs. Now it's killing their own followers thanks to their actions and they're freaking out trying to come up with an exit strategy that doesn't include them backtracking.

I'm going to politely disagree.

They know exactly what they're creating. That's why they're so careful not to cross the line from passive to active support of a civil war. As long as they don't get prosecuted, they're OK with it.

And now they're starting up the political prisoner BS. This will make it increasingly difficult to prosecute anyone without triggering mass violence. When that happens, the seditionists will whine that they are just like BLM. You didn't prosecute them, so why us?

These people are sociopaths bordering on psychopaths. As long as they get what they want (power, money), they will do anything, consequences be damned.

He knew, he banked his job on the stupidity and his return on investment has been impressive. fark him right in his turtle neck.

McConnell is a farking polio survivor.

He talks the talk and he even knows better.

But then he enables all of his death worshipping Trump sucking buddies and invalidates whatever ducking good he could be doing, just to make sure that no subhuman non-white non-Christians get elected to local dog catcher.

And since he should know better he's a thousand times worse than Trump and Cruise.
 
2021-08-30 11:25:50 PM  
You worked your whole life for this, Mitch. The people you claim to support faithfully are so stupid that you and your proudest accomplishments will be forgotten forever before your corpse is laid to rest. What good will all of that money you've got do for you then?
 
2021-08-30 11:53:06 PM  
I hit a turtle today because there was no way for me to avoid it.

I felt awful for doing it.

Had it been Mitch, I wouldn't have felt awful at all.
 
2021-08-31 12:30:12 AM  
Amazing what decades of anti-science propaganda organized by a major political party can do, isn't it?

Reap the whirlwind, you fascist-enabling scumbag.
 
2021-08-31 1:14:54 AM  
So... he is doing the math on who is dieing in several vulnerable (election) counties and noticed the redistricting initiatives I see.

2022 is a bloody, bloody year.

Oh, now you want to save lives, you say?  Shoulda impeached the man-baby on the first try.  We'd have a lot more people alive today.

The unpredictable finger of fate will put the turtle back in his shell. It's a rough and tumble world.

I think you hit the nail on the head. He's brilliant at cheating, grabbing power, and farking people over, but he doesn't understand shiat about anything else in the world.

What does he understand though? He'll never have to loose a close friend or a loved one.
Does he have a close friend or loved one?
He'll do everything he can to avoid this covid while everyone else is subject to it.
Nothing has changed in nearly 2 years.

That's true.

even his wife can't be anything close to either close nor loved. it's all just transactional, and that's exactly the way they want it.

Yes, they're stupid. They're beyond stupid, they're at a level of stupid they could only have reached with help and guidance. All of which came directly from the GQP.

They're so stupid that not only do they think that horse dewormer is a cure for COVID, they're gobbling down enough of it to poison themselves even when they don't have the disease. Because that's how they think cures work, as a magic protective spell. Meanwhile they won't touch the real preventative, because educated people said that it works.
 
2021-08-31 2:59:48 AM  
The dude survive polio. Of course he's pro-vaccine.

Mitch will turn almost anything into a partisan debate tactic to score cheap political wins. This is not one of them.
 
2021-08-31 3:03:53 AM  
But will the Treason Turtle stick his neck out by publicly calling for Americans to get vaccinated? Nope.

I can't recall, but did he say ANYTHING to encourage people to get vaccinated or wear masks when Trump was in office? McConnell is the worst. The absolute worst.

GitOffaMyLawn: These people are sociopaths bordering on psychopaths. As long as they get what they want (power, money), they will do anything, consequences be damned.


He wants his power back.  The only way that will happen soon is if a Democrat Senator gets sick or dies and their temporary replacement is picked by Republican's in their state.  If that happens he wins with control of the Senate and then can stall things until the 2022 midterms in which case the spin would be the stalling in the Senate is all the Democrats fault which has a slight chance of working.

With all the Democrat Senator's being vaccinated, is is very unlikely any are going to leave due to covid. There are now better odds that a Republican will die or get sick and then a replacement Senator could tip so Harris's tie breaker vote isn't needed.

The Internet remembers all. Whether or not his constituents care is another matter.

I'm in southern California. We have our own issues.

Recalls galore - governor, local mayor and some of the city council.

All for not being "conservative" enough.

The GQP is seriously butthurt in California. May it ever be that way.

If only this Mitch McConnell had spoken up at any point in 2020 to tell Americans to trust the science, and people who perform it like Dr. Fauci. Yes, he would've broken from Trump, who as you may recall started beefing with Fauci for no farking reason other than he's a smart guy who magnified what a dunce Trump is. But we might be in a much better position had he done that. McConnell needs to farking go. This reptilian's re-election should be the subject of a vote audit, because I don't see how this shiatbag retained his post given everything that happened last year. We'd all be better off if the Mitch McConnells of the world, (those who hedge until the history is written, and they can deny their wrong-doings in the presence of the stupid) were dead and gone. A footnote to history, and a warning to those in the future not to follow their shiatty example.

Drop dead, Mitch.

A place of power, a spot in the history books (more than most of us will manage), a life of extreme comfort, and seeming complete immunity from his awful actions?
 
2021-08-31 5:26:55 AM  
Never occured to you?  JFC.  There's been nothing but a flood of antivaxx/mask bullshiat coming from your party.  You are the problem and can STFU until you stop being the problem.
 
2021-08-31 5:42:26 AM  
I want to start a conspiracy that posits that the government WANTS you to remain unvaccinated so that you'll never collect all that money you put into social security...but I'm afraid it will just make them double down and demand an end to social security rather than get vaccinated.

I'm sure the MSM liberal drive by liberal media will be eager to reflect on his hypocrisy.

He's finding out the hard way that he can't stuff the genie back in the bottle.

They cultivated this brand of reflexive, knee jerk contrarian own the libs rhetoric for 50 years. What did he expect would happen.

I mean, to be honest, I too did not think Americans would truly be this stupid.

I did not think that in 2021, so many Americans would rather eat livestock dewormer and aquarium cleaner because a failed casino operator and one-term president told them he knew more than the combined intelligence of the CDC and FDA combined.

But this is what you get when you spend 40 years telling Americans that education is bad and your "feelings" matter just as much as "facts" and that the only thing that really matters is whether you get your way or not.

Right, Senator "No progressive bill will ever pass Senate"?
