In The Dark

This story does not surprise me at all.

A meeting of Senate Republicans on Wednesday grew tense as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told his members he could have gotten a better deal on nominations than the one negotiated by rank-and-file Republicans.

McConnell’s tone, according to multiple sources, implied that he had been kept in the dark about the talks between some in his own ranks and Democrats. However, those same Republicans say they kept McConnell updated throughout their negotiating process.

Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., got so frustrated with McConnell’s presentation of events, that he called “bullshit” loud enough for the room to hear, nearly a half-dozen sources said.

Shorter Mitch McConnell: “I was all set to screw with the president and keep everything frozen, but you traitors went behind my back and actually worked with them.”

2 barks and woofs on “In The Dark

  1. Something tells me that Mitch “One-Term President” McConnell isn’t winning the battles these days.

    His reelection is looking less certain by the day.

    More popcorn, please.

  2. John McCain joined the others who were involved in the deal by saying McConnell was there every step of the way. Bullshit indeed. I see a faint graffiti scrawl on the Kentucky wall saying “Mike give it up”. Delicious.
