Secondary QotD

Mitch McConnell:

My first choice was to do something important for the country. But my second obligation is to my party and my conference to prevent them from being sucked into a horrible position politically that would allow the president, probably, to get reelected because we didn’t handle this difficult situation correctly.

Two things. One, as reader Rechan noticed, it’s funny that his “choice” was the country, but his “obligation” is to his party. Secondly, there should be no, ZERO, not one choice made with anything but “the country” in mind. If any choice made on the hill was colored by political angling, it’s evidence that you don’t know how to do your goddamn job.

  1. Looks right to me. He acknowledges the role of his party in keeping the socialists from increasing their power.  Which part of that is hard for socialists to understand?
