McConnell Lets His Hair Down-- Admits Obstructionism and Homosexuality


With Jim DeMint (KKK-SC) breathing down his neck-- demanding the Republican Senate caucus put term limits on leadership jobs, a proposal that failed but caused tremendous rancor inside the caucus-- Mitch McConnell reiterated what his #2, Jon Kyl, has already declared-- that the GOP will filibuster anything and everything they don't like. He sent Harry Reid a threatening letter and got every single one of the Republican senators to sign it-- including the two who haven't been re-elected, Coleman and Chambliss.
Reid responded by saying that he supports working across party lines but blasting Republicans for obstructing the work of the current Congress.

“I have always said that Democrats and Republicans need to work together to pass legislation that helps people in their daily lives. After Republicans in the last Congress opted for a strategy of blocking progress, the American people clearly rejected those partisan tactics,” Reid stated.  “They have given us another opportunity to work together in the 111th Congress as the people of this country expect, and I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to come up with solutions that will get our country back on track.”

As for McConnell's homosexuality... well, officially he's still in the closet for now. But he sent out a strong signal to fellow gays and those "in the know" during his speech Friday. The not all that stunning revelation came couched in a superficial analysis of the political situation the GOP finds itself in. "He said Republicans are not sorry to see President Bush leave office, given his unpopularity, and praised Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) for running a 'fabulous' campaign.”

One gay activist confided that the use of "fabulous" to describe the McCain-Palin campaign is as obvious a gay signal as was Larry Craig's decades of visits to and tapping behavior in public toilets. Once McConnell realized he had outed himself, he immediately started screeching about how the GOP would protect America from the latest liberal menace: the ominous card-check. He quickly returned to bitchiness when a reporter chided him about the closeness of his re-election effort back in Kentucky.
“Let me hasten to remind you, my election was not close,” McConnell said. “I won by over 100,000 votes, I carried 87 out of 120 counties, and it was the third-largest margin I’ve ever gotten. It was contested, but it was not close.”

...McConnell on Friday said he was not disheartened by the widespread GOP losses on Nov. 4 because the party has a strong stock of governors and up-and-coming Senate leaders.

“We are beginning a slow and deliberative process of finding our way back."

True, true-- and by the mid to late 2020's, when most of the damage done by the Bush Regime and GOP dominance is cleaned up, there is every indication that the Republican Party will be ready to seriously contest elections in non-Mormon states and in states that were not previously part of the Confederacy.

George W. Bush uses the word "fabulous" fairly often as well.

I think aion kina changes my life. Because of aion online kina, I meet a lot of friends. Besides, my friends usually give me some aion gold. I usually buy aion kina through Internet and advice from my friends, so I gain a lot of cheap aion kina and harvest in life.

Reid responded by saying that he supports working across party lines but blasting Republicans for obstructing the work of the current Congress,certainly we can ignore this issue.
