    That’s one turtle that should be left straddling a fencepost.

    In truth, the wrong person died. RBG was a beacon of justice, empathy, and due process. Her death is a tragedy. McCon is in every way her opposite.

    If the Devil can cite Scripture for his purpose, why can’t slime like Mitch be two-faced? If there is a Hell, Mitch has a home.

    Let the people decide. They did. 3 million more people voted for Hillary. Didn’t matter, they don’t care. McConnell is even more evil than Trump, he’s enabled Corporate rule for decades to come.

    Fie on Mitch – {limerick}

    Fie on this Senator Mitch,

    and fie on his leadership niche,

    where duplicity reigns

    for political gains, -

    - so his “principles” often switch.

    Too many turtles are endangered around the world. However, this is one turtle I won’t lose any sleep over if it goes extinct.

    (Take-off from the theme to the TV series, “The Real McCoys,” by Harry Ruby.)

    ”The Real McCon”

    (An extended hand rings a ranch triangle dinner bell, and we hear —)

    Come meet the Southern senator

    Who’s known as The Real McCon:

    From the state of Kentucky he came to D. C.

    And now he spits on Democracy.

    That’s Mitchell McConnell, all ethics gone,

    The Senate Leader known as The Real McCon.


    Leadin’ his mob by their noses,

    Through rings connected by invisible reins,

    He convinces his Republicans to do what he wants,

    And has made them Trump-kissin’ sycophants.

    He smirks and cracks the whip their backs upon,

    As the ring master known as The Real McCon.


    For many long years he’s plotted,

    It’s been somethin’ he’s really enjoyed.

    He’s dealt with a lot of cheaters and crooks,

    They gobble his bait, but then feel the hooks.

    For he’s a political phenomenon,

    The slick operator known as The Real McCon.


    Lots of Fed’ral judges he’s pushed through,

    He considers them useful ploys.

    Here’s another SCOTUS justice he aims to get,

    The hypocrite will get it, you sure can bet.

    Anything for His Party, and for his Don,

    Does the Senate Leader known as The Real McCon.

    Why in the name of sanity, civility, and common decency is McConnel NOT in prison for his repulsive, un-American, traitorous actions? The Senat was NOT intended to be ruled by a dictatorship that denies the people’s will and promotes a private, EXCLUSIVE, political party’s will.

    And the rest of the Republican Party sits on their hands, unwilling to risk Trump’s ire, a nasty tweet that could cost them votes.

    Since he never really moves his mouth when he talks/mumbles, you’re not sure what exactly what he’s saying. The “perfect” politician!

    In 2016, it was over six months before the election. In 2020, it’s just 42 days until election day. Obviously, the voters don’t have time to make a well-thought out reasoned decision. Hence, the haste.

    Hypocrisy, thy name is McConnell!

    If this move makes the Democrats as nasty as the Republicans, 2921 on will be a new world. Hold on to your hats, it will be a tough ride from now on. Think of 2020 as being better than the future.

    Folks keep wondering why Moscow “You Son-of-s-Mitch” McConnell keeps being re-elected (as he will be again this year…) and Kentucky keeps visiting this disaster on the whole of the U. S. The answer simple. The Civil War is not yet over.

    I give, to bMitch McConvict, the (barely) cleaned up version of the Old Marine Curse!

    May itching piles torment him! May corns grow on his feet!

    May crabs the size of buzzards get on his balls and eat!

    And when he is a desiccated, syphilitic wreck

    May he fall through his own dammed @sshole

    And break his fTucking NECK!!

    The last time the people spoke, Republicans lost the House. McConnell isn’t risking that kind of thing again! Grab the power, and shove your agenda down their throats!

    I know this is a rude thot, but YouKnowWho’s track record lends credence to it. Whaddya suppose Amy Coney Barrett is the #1 prospect because he can’t stop thinking about getting into her pants?

    Course-correction – {limerick}

    Our patience has long since been spent

    that the Trumpites will never relent.

    We await the election

    for a course-correction

    {for the Democrats’ timely ascent}.

    Every racist republican is an evil liar and a thief. And they think we should thank them for it by reelecting them.

    I wanted to write a satire about a Justice dying a couple days before the election, Li’l Donnie nominating whatever person the Federalist Society “advises” him to, Li’l Donnie losing the election in a landslide so obvious that even Mitch can see it, but ramming through the nominee between the election and Biden’s inauguration. Then I thought, why give them ideas?

    I hear McConnell is advising to wait until after the election so the right wing will vote.
