Have you heard about this horrible new knockout game that's been plaguing Washington DC and various other parts of the country lately? It's apparently become so popular that even old Republican Senators are starting to play it.
CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Watch Mitch McConnell (R) throw a verbal shot to the head of Harry Reid (D) on the Senate floor earlier today:
Not exactly the "one-hitter quitter" we're used to seeing in the knockout game, but cut McConnell some slack, he's old but still occasionally shows some spunk:
Oh SNAP! "If you like the rules of the Senate, you can keep them!” Now that's a punch to the face. Might as well just flat out call him a liar... because you know, he lies a lot. He's nowhere near Presidential when it comes to lying, but he'd make the ideal Liars' Leader, maybe even Speaker of the Liars. The man is on top of his game.
But that didn't stop Mitch "Darth Vader" McConnell hailing out of Kentucky. He continued pummeling that limp noodle of a body with glasses named Harry Reid:
And this Democrat strategy of distract, distract, distract is getting old. Because the American people aren’t fooled. “If our colleagues want to work with us to fill judicial vacancies that actually need to be filled, then let’s do it. “If our colleagues want to work with us to spare the American people from the pain of Obamacare, then let’s do that. “But if they want to play games and set yet another precedent that they will no doubt come to regret, well…that’s a choice only they can make. “Let me be clear: the Democrat playbook of broken promises, double standards, and raw power…the same playbook that got us Obamacare…it has to end. “That’s why Republicans are going to keep their focus where it belongs: on the concerns of the American people. “It means we’re going to keep pushing to get back to the drawing board on health care – to replace Obamacare with real reforms that do not punish the middle class. And we’ll leave the political games to our friends on the other side.”
This is in response to Harry Reid's plan to go "nuclear" on the rules for judges, hoping to cut passage numbers from 60 to 51. Stay tuned to see how Harry Reid responds.
Well, it's official... Democrats went nuclear:
It's apparently "temporary", meaning when Republicans take control of Washington (like in 2014, then 2016, etc...) Democrats will try slithering out of this somehow.
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!!
