  1. how much longer will our state allow Mitch to hold up anything that is even remotely good for the country?? just because a democrat brings something up doesnt mean it is bad…. i am surprised he hasnt let go with the ” nothing will happen as all i want to do is make the president look bad”….. reminds me of the “leader” in KY senate that we just got rid of……

  2. “Go, Casey E.!”

    With the new composition of the U.S. Senate, favoring Democrats even more, bloviating Mitch will become even more irrelevant to the present and future of Amurka. That is a good sign of progress to come. What now, Mitch? You can no longer make unseating Obama your one and only aim in life.

  3. Casey E,

    Sorry, you didn’t get rid of KY Senate President. Steve did – by buying him off.
    Can you do that with Mitch?

  4. “Dick Armey” is the most appropriate, representative GOP name that I have ever seen. No matter how many times I see that man’s name, I always laugh.

  5. Would it be worth it to get rid of Mitch by appointing him to the Supreme Court?

    Oh, wait. That must not be a good idea because a bit of vomit just came in my mouth.
