My favorite term as of late has been “crapweasel.” Basically, it conveys the dismissive, yet contemptuous attitude regarding another person. Given that, I think Mitch McConnell fits that perfectly.
On Sunday, The New York Times reported that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) stated that he would work to destroy the efforts of conservative organizations seeking to primary mainstream Republicans. “I think we are going to crush them everywhere,” he stated. “I don’t think they are going to have a single nominee anywhere in the country.”
Over the past two election cycles, mainstream Republicans have become more and more upset over the rise of Tea Party-backed candidates who have primaried GOP incumbents, then proceeded to lose general elections. McConnell has been personally attacked by the Senate Conservatives Fund, which supports businessman challenger Matt Bevin. McConnell recently began running an ad targeting both Bevin and SCF. The ad accuses SCF of soliciting “money under the guise of advocating for conservative principles but then spends it on a $1.4 million luxury townhouse with a wine cellar and a hot tub in Washington, D.C.”
If I were not a Christian man who really tries to walk the walk, my response would consist of a profanity laden tirade. But, we’ll keep it clean and make the observation that the GOP has never really liked Conservatives. They hated even Reagan, and only took to him after he won by landslide. Most typically, they run mild and unexciting candidates, and they lose far too much. They stand for nothing more than a cowardly caution. They stand for little, and inspire even less. Mitch McConnell would prefer that-having the GOP attack only those that would strngthen it, rather than the democrats. Forget standing up for something-just trash the ones that would.
In all honesty; Mitch McConnell and his ilk disgust me. I expect the democrats to be traitorous slime-it’s in their DNA. When the GOP does it? Let’s just say I have always expected better. Now however, I had she that unrealistic expectation.
