McConnell''s "play by my rules or I'll turn into a dick" gambit

I assume the "warning shots" he's firing about his "scorched earth" wet dream are for the benefit of anyone who hasn't followed his career up to this point.

He STILL THINKS HE IS THE MAJORITY LEADER. the "grim reaper," and that he's calling the shots.

We really, really, really need to put forth a Herculean effort in 2022 to turn out the vote and KEEP HIM as MINORITY "leader."

3. Or "Play by my rules"

"And I'll continue to do what I have been doing for the past 12 years."

I do hope he is panicking. I do hope that he is seeing his life of obstruction flashing before his eyes.

4. Scorched earth?

He turned the U.S. Senate into a wasteland of scorched earth twelve years ago, and it's been that way ever since. What does he think he's going to do? Re-scorch the same earth? Some threat.

26. That made me laugh really hard!

My cat was lying on top of me at the time (she has a habit of mistaking me for a cat bed). She did not appreciate my sudden guffaw.

10. Lol. What a dick head. Some news for you turtlehead,

you already scorched the frigging earth, it can’t get anymore scorched. All you got is blanks. Get used to being the loser you always were in reality. Your whole frigging life is an overcompensation for being a wimpy, no mas loser.

12. he's been nothing but a dick every single time he's held the majority leader position

I don't see a damned thing changing just because we're threatening to take his binkie away for the next two years.

He has blocked every single bill passed by the House in the past 2 years. No one was ever meant to hold that much power in government. He's got to be neutralized any way they can do it.

One corrupt man from KY should not be able to hold the whole country hostage.

I want him to live just long enough to see everything he's done collapse into foul smelling dust.

Go back to the old rules regarding Filibusters. Make them embarrass themselves.

19. He's used this ploy before. Call him out.

Provisions to help Arizona and West Virginia working class victims could benefit the Democrats. The filibuster is all McConnell has, and he's abused that process more than any senator in history. He never tells the truth. He's Roy Cohn with a Kentucky drawl.

Besides, he lost all right to invoke “the sanctity of the filibuster” when he killed it for SCOTUS nominations.

27. Sorry McTurtle, but no one's playing your games anymore. We don't negotiate with terrorists.

You’re not the grim reaper, but he’s on your doorstep. You and your Jim Crow crowd can go lay your GOP turd in a hole in the ground. Six feet long and six feet deep.
