Worst Person Alive

For some years now, McTurtle has been #1 on my personal political Hate Parade. He even outranks the Rapist in Chief because, in the long run, he has done / can do more damage to America-as-it-should-be. And also because of his outsized, shifty-eyed smarminess. I try to avoid state-shaming, because there are good people everywhere, but FFS Kentucky.

Mitch McConnell will go down as the chief destroyer of the American traditions and institutions that checked the power of the majority and protected the minority — something that used to be considered pretty important by both Republicans and Democrats. Historians will be writing about how it was McTurtle that ushered in the end of American democracy, and analyzing the results of the second Civil War. His lack of respect of the traditions of the Senate, indeed the traditions of the Republic, will be our undoing. 

 McConnell is a scumbag who “serves no master but his own ambition.” He blocked Obama’s rightful Supreme Court pick because he could. Period. There was no larger ideological principle. Oh sure, he claimed as much and people gullible enough to buy bridges in Brooklyn took him seriously. While Trump’s hogging the lime light, it’s Mitch McConnell who is destroying out democracy. He stonewalled the Garland nomination and who engineered Kennedy’s resignation. He has engineered the greatest coup in American history and his actions will pervert justice for forty years or more.

It’s time that the Democratic Party put its energy into flipping the Senate. The ideal outcome would be that Democrats can find a candidate to run against Mitch McConnell in 2020 and completely end his career in politics. At minimum, we should win the Senate so that we can lessen McConnell’s influence and he gets demoted to Senate Minority Leader. Trump is just one bad actor existing within larger frameworks of injustice, oppression, and unfairness in the American political framework. Beating Trump is just the start. Winning the Senate and keeping the House should be a crucial part of the agenda for Democrats in 2020, because Congress is ultimately going to be making the decisions on which bills go to a vote and which policies eventually become law.

Mitch McConnell is literally the devil incarnate but without honor, style, or a neck. He must be destroyed.
