Know what might suck worse than having McConnell for a Senator?

Being McConnell.

Imagine if you had spent six years doing everything you possibly could to make President Obama's job and life miserable, and then, you realized your life's ambition of being Majority Leader, and had to face the music with President Obama in 'No more fucks to give' mode. Oh, how that would suck - possibly worse than having McConnell for a Senator. Maybe.

I am not at all embarrassed to admit that I get shamefully gleeful when I read articles like Mitch McConnell Begs President Obama To Reconsider His Planned Keystone XL Veto, and imagine how miserable the ornery old obstructionist fool must be at times like this.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell campaigned on forcing the president to bend to the will of Republicans, but it is the Kentucky senator who is now on bended knee asking Obama to reconsider his promise to veto the Keystone XL bill.
This should come as no surprise to him, or to anyone who paid the least bit of attention to his campaign. Like everything else he has said or done in the last couple of decades, this campaign was nothing but self-serving lies. He said and did whatever he thought he would impress low-information voters who had not paid attention and would not know enough to call him out or to hold him responsible later. And he used dirty money to run dirty ads - nonstop - to spread his lies.

Unfortunately, his supporters are as clueless today as they were then, and will suck up and blame President Obama (and his allies, as McConnell likes to call sane people, as though we aren't proud to be allies to the President.) Now that I think about it, being a McConnell supporter probably sucks worse than having McConnell for a Senator, too. Imagine having to make it through life with lots of fucks to give and not a single clue.

On the Senate floor, McConnell said: The Keystone Jobs bill is just common sense. 
That's not true. By definition, common sense means good sense and sound judgment in practical matters. People with good sense and sound judgment know this is not a jobs bill. It is a get-richer scheme for McConnell and his owners, who care nothing about this country or its citizens. But, nice try, McConnell. Saying words makes you appear to have something going on in that head.

That’s why this bipartisan legislation already passed the Senate with support from both parties. That’s why labor unions support it. That’s why the American people support it.Americans know that construction of this infrastructure project would pump billions into the economy and support thousands of good jobs.
 There he goes again, pretending he speaks for everyone when that is far from the truth. Sure, there might be a few Democrats and a union member or two who hate Americans as much as he does but they are not the majority. THE American people don't support a single thing McConnell stands for. A few clueless people do. This would pump billions into the pockets of his owners. Just once, it would be nice for him to speak the truth. Or even get somewhere close to a little bit true. 
They also know that America could achieve this with, as the President’s own State Department has indicated, minimal environmental impact.
Well, that's not exactly what they said. They said it would likely not dramatically affect global greenhouse gas emissions. But that's not the only concern. McConnell knows this but don't expect him to ever come clean about that.

Again, I wish McConnell sleepless nights, ulcers, and a conscience that will kick in one day and torment him the rest of his days. Carrying his guilt surely does suck worse than being his victim.
