Mitch McConnell Praises Barack Obama, Ted Kennedy, Makin' Deals with Democrats

Son of a bitch.

Speaking at the Kennedy Institute, Mitch McConnell appealed to his actual constituency -- Beltway/Accela Corridor establishment liberals.

The Boston Globe reports, "Majority leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said Kennedy was someone who could separate the personal from the political and who stayed true to his word. Those are characteristics that will help the body function better in the future, and there are already signs of progress, McConnell said." "A real sense of renewal is taking hold in the Senate," said McConnell.



"A lot of folks like to joke about the odd couple that was Ted Kennedy and Orrin Hatch," McConnell said, referring to the late Massachusetts Democrat and the Republican senator from Utah. "But I think Mitch McConnell and Barack Obama may have them outdone. I had to warn reporters not to faint last week before offering the president some praise on trade. Im even getting handwritten notes from the president these days. He sent one the other day to thank me for supporting the nomination of Loretta Lynch."

"We've both chosen to put policy before party. That's how politics should be conducted, in my view," McConnell said Sunday.

Strangely, he didn't inform his voters about his take on "how politics should be conducted" when he conned them into voting for him.

Senators are just government workers like any other. They all are just bureaucrats, pulling federal checks and resenting their clientele for bothering them. They think they know better than the public they pretend to serve and do very little but scheme to ignore the public's wishes until they can start pulling their government pensions.

Off-Topic: But I expect this is what people will be talking about -- George Zimmerman shot through his car window in Florida.

I take this to be yet another assassination attempt or, I guess I should say, a "protest."
