At CPAC, Mitch McConnell Calls Conservatives ‘Simply More Fun Than Liberals’

At CPAC, Mitch McConnell Calls Conservatives ‘Simply More Fun Than Liberals’


Written by Alyssa Rosenberg

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has an interesting new recruiting strategy for conservatives. “Conservatives are more simply more fun than liberals, and there is a reason for that,” he told the audience at the Conservative Political Action Conference this morning. “We’re always right.” Watch it:

Speaking in 2009 to CPAC, McConnell made the same argument, commenting, “Who wants to hang out with guys like Paul Krugman and Robert Reich when you can be with Rush Limbaugh?”

My plans for a rockin’ time out don’t generally include hanging out with my friends in conference rooms getting all self-congratulatory about our stances on policy, but to each his own. If McConnell wants to rebrand conservatism as America’s most entertaining ideological movement, he’s probably going to have to come up with a better reason people should believe him.

Hey you guys, don't laugh so hard at McConnell because he thinks we liberals don't know how to have fun. His kind of fun includes watching the clown shows that we've seen about 20 of so far. Now THAT's been REAL fun, to see just how far those republitards are willing to go to antagonize the rest of the country, especially the women. And don't forget, it's going to be REAL FUNNY to watch them get their arses handed to them this November!! Now that's what I call fun!

For Mitch McConnell to say that conservatives are more fun than liberals.......

6:12PM PST on Feb 16, 2012

Fun ? Mitch must think of fun in the same way that the Marquis De Sade thinks of fun.

I always preferred the name Bitch McFondle instead. His smile has always had that "goofy" aspect to it, sinister. That plus the chatter he is gay and has been married twice, this time to a woman much younger to him and she also works in the political field. But I think Mitch is more interested in the Larry Craig type.

We all know what Jeffrey thinks is fun. And he's right wing.

So point and match.
