Happy Independence Day, Senator McConnell?

Dear Senator McConnell:

Despite your bang-up leadership in the opposite direction, and your party's recent refusal to allow the BP Oil Spill Commission the subpoena power it needs to do its job, most of physical America still stands on Independence Day, 2010. And, despite your ill-informed objection to Elena Kagan, it looks like she will be confirmed because The American People do want a judge who will impartially apply the law and who will recognize We the People instead of You and Your Corporate Donors. And, despite your refusal to show compassion to the unemployed (the uninsured, the homeless, the hungry . . . ), I haven’t actually seen all of The American people lying starving and homeless in the streets, yet. And, despite your siding with bankers instead of The American People on Financial Reform, you haven't managed to completely transfer all of the wealth into your own pocket. Some of us still have a few cents jingling in our pockets.

Despite every effort to show us that you care nothing about this country or The American People who inhabit it, I still wish you a happy independence day. I wish my fellow Kentuckians and the rest of this great nation an even happier day when we finally claim our independence from you.

HYPOCRACY ALERT: May be more than most people can stomach
