McConnell Won't Silence Coretta Scott King, Elizabeth Warren, or Any Other Persistent Woman

McConnell, Ofbannon, or whatever you prefer these days:

Once again, you embarrassed sane Kentuckians. Actually, that's just a permanent condition for us now. We know we can count on our Senators and Governor to embarrass us every time you speak. The fact that no Republican can be even the slightest bit original should be embarrassing to your party but that would require pride, so I won't hope for change.

Aaron Yarmuth is my favorite guy today for turning around some of my stinkin' thinkin'. I was prepared to spend the day hating all over you for trying to silence Senator Warren's contribution to the Sessions debate - until Aaron thanked you and made me decide I should maybe be grateful, too. In case you missed it, here's a repeat:

Thank you Senator Mitch McConnell for bringing even more attention to Jeff Sessions and his racist past that should disqualify him from becoming the U.S. Attorney General.
You have done a great public service (as a spiteful gesture toward Elizabeth Warren) ... now Coretta Scott King's letter will be read by more Americans than ever.
And I thought I was going to have to get over my aversion to cameras and microphones and make a video of myself reading the letter you didn't want to hear. But, again, Aaron saved me. He did such a fantastic job that I decided to share his instead of making my own. You're welcome - he looks and sounds better than I would have. In case you missed the tag (while checking in to read all of the messages you ask your constituents to leave for you on Facebook) here's a link to Aaron's video.

 And, in case you just can't bring yourself to click on a Yarmuth page, I will post the letter for you to read. 

It's really hard to believe that you didn't want something as pertinent as this to be read on the floor of the Senate. That should make everyone wonder if you aren't as racist as Sessions, or political as you accuse others of being.

Persistently yours,


Thanks to Charm for telling me about the error in the title.
