Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has officially failed. Despite his party now having held control over the Senate, the House, and the White House for the past six months, he’s managed to accomplish precisely none of the Republican Senate’s agenda. His failure became complete when he tried to ram through a health care bill in the middle of the night which amounted to one of the worst and least popular pieces of legislation in history, and he failed at that too.
Now Mitch McConnell is finally admitting that he’s a complete failure. Of course, because he’s a comic book villain who gleefully relishes his role as a political heel, he made the admission in the most snidely backhanded way possible.
Here’s what McConnell had to say during a radio station interview: “Even on the night when we came up one vote short of our dream to repeal and replace Obamacare, here’s the first thing I thought about: feel better, Hillary Clinton could be president” (link). If McConnell had a mustache, he’d have been twisting it while saying this line. But let’s dissect this.
First, McConnell is acknowledging that he’s failed completely. He’s admitting that he’s accomplished literally zero. He’s falling back on the ‘at least the other party isn’t in power’ rationale as a way of arguing that his total failure to accomplish anything is better than the other team having the ball.
He’s also admitting that his “dream” all along has been to take health care away from tens of millions of people, murdering many of them in the process. Which means McConnell is a total failure as a human being as well. But then we already knew that part.
Now that Mitch McConnell’s total failure as Senate Majority Leader has become so blatant that even he’s having to acknowledge it in his own snide way, it raises the question: how much longer before the rest of the Republican Senate grows tired of his wall-to-wall failures and ousts him from the leadership role? Tick tock, Mitch.
