Let us hope that this is another nail in Mitch's political coffin. Or several nails.

I posted a similar submission. Great minds think alike.

Now if only Mitch would have the good grace to do the same. There is no way on earth he didn't see this coming, but for his eternal, infernal arrogance, when he hired the man. It shows his capacity for ignorance and discredits his potential leadership of the Senate, how could he be trusted to lead such an august body as the Senate when he isn't even capable of vetting properly his own staff. I hope this, along with his outrageous plans, helps Alison Grimes usher him into a long overdue retirement.

Apparently birds of a feather flock together... two scavengers who should just be put out of their misery. I do hope Mitch is toast.

The sainted Ron Paul, the brilliant Michele Bachmann, and the dynamic McConnell all in the same article about bribery, endorsement buying, fickle allegiance, and unethical campaigns. Seems about right.

IF ONLY this could sink Mitch! But remember what kind of gullible voters keep voting him back in. Being the slime ball politician that he is is may just dodge this. Let's hope not.
