Mitch McConnell wants to slow walk impeachment because even after a terrorist attack on the Capitol, he puts his party over his country.

He’s incapable of pretending to be a real patriot for longer than five minutes.

I’m 53. @senatemajldr has been in the senate since I was a 16-year old junior in high school. He flew to our school (Apollo HS, Owensboro, Ky) in a helicopter. The school made us attend this “assembly” on our school football field. The whole school walked out there. ...

Sometimes I think there’s no way I’d be smart enough to run for office. Then I look at Rand Paul.
No for real Rand Paul isn’t even a Kentuckian. I don’t know what we’re talking about here. Guy’s an embarrassment. He supposedly represents western kentucky? Lol.
Rand Paul spent the Obama years warning of tyranny. He spent the last four years of tyranny kissing its ass.
