Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) lets no opportunity slip past his partisan path. McConnell has been fundraising off the so-called ‘fiscal cliff’ negotiations, asking supporters to donate to his reelection campaign in the interest of fighting President Obama’s “dangerous debt scheme.” He begins his email with (wait for it) “Dear Patriot.” And that’s only the beginning of his lulzy email. McConnell paints a picture of his victimization, all by that mean ol’ President Obama.
Be prepared before reading the entirety of McConnell’s email for his usage of Republican caps.
But that’s exactly what the Obama Administration did this week with their laugh-out-loud “plan” to raise YOUR taxes by over 1.6 trillion dollars.
Actually Mitch, those would be YOUR taxes that would be raised. Mitch McConnell has become a vastly wealthy man since entering the political arena.
Here’s the best part of his email. By ‘best’ I mean funny.
As I lead the fight against his dangerous debt scheme, Barack Obama has placed a huge target squarely on my back. As I fight for you, I need your generous support to fight off his attacks.
What prompted Mitch McConnell to write this email.
As noted here, I hope you’re sitting down when you read this news. I kid. Of course we know that Mitch McConnell is hugely unpopular, likely because he doesn’t really do anything except impede progress and he garners a hefty paycheck for his dubious efforts.
Sen. Mitch McConnell is the most unpopular senator in the nation. The Republican lawmaker faces a 55 percent disapproval rating, while just 37 percent of Kentucky voters approve of him, according to a Public Policy Polling poll released Tuesday.
Among Kentucky Democrats to take on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for his Senate seat in 2014,Ashley Judd is the most popular, according to a new poll released Tuesday.
Since lovable Mitch brought up targets, let’s talk about the rather huge target he painted on President Obama’s back. Mitch McConnell was one of the Republican leaders who met behind closed doors in 2008 during a covert meeting, to swear an oath not to support anything and everything the newly minted President tries to accomplish.
Later Mitch McConnell stated that his primary goal was to make Obama a one-term President. Not jobs, the economy, ending war, helping the poor, education or a host of other issues, but he was solely focused on the President.
Mitch the Victim has inspired me to write an email. I’ll need to edit it (with your help).
Dear Mitch McConnell,
I feel so bad about the target you believe that Obama has painted on your back. Perhaps a psychiatrist can explain to you that projection is not healthy. Perhaps he or she can point you to a dictionary to define the word ‘patriot’ for you. It doesn’t mean what you think it means. You put politics first and country last. You betrayed our country.
If I was a rude notorious F-Bomb terrorist, I would call you a parasitic mother fucker. But I’m far too nice of a person.
