Matt Bevin would have been a good replacement. What is wrong with KY voters?
SC voters aren’t any better, Graham should have been booted as well. Lee Bright was a good replacement.
Might have something to do with ‘bringing home the bacon’.
Because if you DON'T vote for them, that means you are voting for Hitlery! /sarc
I’m all for cutting the ballz off this Patriot Act. It isn’t being used for the intended purpose. Throw in the TSA, the DHS and fire every top person in the FBI, the CIA and NSA for good measure.
I am so, so tired of that stupid meme. It is the retreat of moral cowards.
I seem to remember in one of the budget surrender sorties that McConnell helped our side capitulate in that the Grand State of Kentucky yielded something like $4 billion in largess of some sort.
LOL! That’s why the “/s” at the end. I, for one, am really relieved that the gopE is in control now. Oh, they’re not? Oh, in name only.
How can their surveillance possibly get more extensive? I understand that they monitor and record all communications traffic. What else is there that can be monitored? Do they want microphones in every room of every building?
Had it on another thread, where I proudly proclaimed I did not vote for Willard.
Tyrants in both parties.
Mitch is the DC establishment’s bitch

I am just hoping that watching these two years of gopE control of both chambers will disabuse a fair amount of people of the wisdom of maintaining that point of view.
“It is the retreat of moral cowards.”
I kinds wish the guy who visited Harry Reid would give Mitch some quality time.
There is one party, the Globalist Elite Police State party. Both Democrats and Republicans are branches of this party.
