From Joshua Green’s otherwise enjoyably-peeved article (“Strict Obstructionist*”) on Mitch McConnell:
Nobody anticipated the Republican swing only two years later…
That’s a damned lie. The entire party has been planning a “Republican swing” since roughly two seconds after we heard the President tell us “I won.” And Senator McConnell – who I still have some fondness for as a politician – had damned little to do with leading the charge.
I swear to God, these people are desperate to find a Republican leader to attack, once and for all. Can they freaking wait until the primaries are over, at least?
