For all of you outside heathenistic agitators who know nothing about the 130 year tradition of the Fancy Farm Breakfast in Graves county Kentucky, it is one of the Bluegrass State’s featured political hoedowns. Politicians who are eager to woo the Kentucky intelligentsia flock to the rural farm for a tetê-a-tetê with their political opponents where they slander and defame one another with a religious devotion. This year was a bit different as the democrats by and large, did not show up for all the whooping and hollering.
For the rest of the Bourbon Gentry, Mitch McConnell has been their stalwart Republican whore that brings the gullible and compliant yokels to full froth every year and this year was no exception. Gone now are the days when even the most wholly-owned political whores conceal their scaly hides and the sedition that courses through their veins. Consider if you will the Oath of Office each member of congress makes when they are sworn in:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
Mitch McConnell is a traitor, period.
For every single Republican there is also another oath they must take and that is to Grover Norquist who runs one of the Koch’s “grassroots lobby” called Americans For Tax Reform. That’s the outfit that ran the first Bush out of his second term after he said so famously, “Read my lips, no new taxes.” Bush Sr. was a responsible and patriotic American who put his country above his party and wisely increased taxes after Reaganomics began to threaten our nation’s financial security. That didn’t matter to Grover or the Kochs, he introduced a new commandment into the Republican bible and that one supersedes all others, “Thou shalt not raise taxes, ever.”
Interestingly enough, Mitch McConnell again has violated his oath of office as any wholly-owned whore is committed to do, he said that he will discharge the duties of his office. One of those duties is that he will advise and consent on judicial nominations. It is explicitly written in the Constitution that Republicans claim to love so much, except when they are about to lose majority control of the 3rd branch of government for the first time in 50 years. Party has always meant more than country to Mitch McConnell because as he said, his first objective was to flatly state on the night of Obama’s election that his only priority was to make him a one term president. He didn’t care who was hurt or that his obstructionism would harm even our veterans, the quest was to let this president achieve nothing that would earn him the respect he deserved.
Never before in American history was the use of the filibuster employed more than since President Obama took office. Mitch has been in congress for 35 years and has no fear of Kentuckians growing tired of him doing nothing but spewing platitudes about socialism and the imaginary “War on Coal” he is so famous for iterating. It is a method he has employed to dupe gullible rubes into ignoring that he is trying with all his might to strip them of health coverage under the ACA and he has been most successful. But this Fancy Farm’s breakfast was a bit different in that McConnell had the audacity to reveal with no qualms at all that his quiet filibuster of Merrick Garland is entirely violating his oath of office.
“Mr President, you will not fill this Supreme Court Vacancy!”
Mitch has never been shy about bragging about his obstruction of the Obama administration but in this clip, he takes pride in what any red-blooded American would hang their head in shame for declaring to the world.
McConnell is head of a fraternity of do-nothing pathological liars that graciously accept the generous salary of the people while becoming millionaires themselves. If the people of Kentucky could scrounge up enough IQ points to decorate a set of dice, they’d save the money we spend on Mitch and Rand and put two rubber dummies in their senate seats with a sign that says no to everything democrats say and filibuster anything they propose while saving the millions we expend on their offices.
With both Mitch and Rand doing absolutely nothing to show the people they should govern, their obstructionism and Herr Drumpf’s putrid hyperbole is not going to help Republicans win elections anytime soon.
