Mitch has been in the US Senate since 1985, the beginning of Reagans second term.
Ironically, he won in ’84 in a surprised victory due primarily to this dog commercial:
Now, some 37 years later, Mitch is still in the senate. And as the Republican leader of the US Senate for the last 14 years, he has done more damage, due to his political longevity, than Reagan ever did to this country. His indifference to helping Obama, denying Garland hearings for Garland’s SCOTUS nomination, not standing up to Trump, passing unnecessary tax relief for the rich, and delaying covid relief, just to name a few, Mitch is the reason congress no longer works, and thus, why America no longer works as well.
Keep in mind, too, that if Mitch had his way pre-existing condition clauses would be a thing again, too.
All of this is Mitch’s nuance approach to politics, which makes Dusty’s pale. These McConnell nuances are constant dead ends for any attempt to progress in this country.
But in the meantime, Mitch knows his dogs, knows how to use them, and calls the dogs as he wishes.
( and Woodstock adds: “And don’t forget, Thune likes to say: ‘…It will go down like a shot dog'”….”And, I think I know who told him that one, too”….)
I have often joked that Mitch really isn’t alive, but a ghost that continues to haunt us.
Mitch’s wife is kinda cute though?
Maybe Mitch’s wife collects frogs? I’d like to see Mitch in a straw hat with overalls. Maybe that’s how he campaigns in Kentucky? Kentucky gave us bourbon, Churchill Downs, Ali, Abe, Rand, and Mitch’s neck. Fort Knox is in Kentucky, too. Maybe some of the reserve gold is kept in his neck? A sinkhole once ate some Corvettes in Kentucky as well. Maybe they just went down a big throat found in a big neck? Maybe Mitch’s mouth is an other opening to Mammon Cave? So, Mitch most likely comes from an unique neck of the woods in Kentucky, where moonshine is their water, Elaine’s type aren’t welcomed, and shoes are left to Mitch’s elite friends who are found in Washington during the week.
