Rank has its priviledges
 
As part of his negotiations with Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell is making it rain in Kentucky. He just sent a ton of money to his state, just in time for a tough re-election in 2014.

Senate Compromise

Scroll down to section 13.

McConnell is a dirtbag, no question about that. He and Reid are two of the worst in my lifetime.

**** Mitch McConnell.

Another odd one. On page 20, they just randomly sent $174,000 to the widow of the late Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ)

I have absolutely no problem with so-called "pork", whatsoever. Never have, most of the "anti-pork" arguments are silly.

Either the project is needed, or it is not, and the local congressmen are more likely to advocate for whatever it is. If its a bridge to nowhere, feel free to go nuts with political ads. If its the Hoover Dam, I don't care which Senator asked for it.

I think its just hilarious that on such a high-profile bill, in this bill of all places, a bill that would be scrutinized and combed through by everyone, that they put it in. You'd think they'd pick a lower-profile bill.

When did I say that? I've been pushing for term limits since way back in the 90's when it was a republican plank when Newt's clan took over. And then they quickly dropped it.

And the tea party candidates are the ones you like to vilify? **** dems, **** republicans. Clean the whole lot of em out of Washington.

Of course the Democratic Senate approved the McConnell kickback. They don't want him to be replaced.
