If nothing else, this whole Brett Kavanaugh fiasco has given Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell a chance to reveal his inner badass.
And we couldn’t be happier about it.
MCCONELL: "I want to make it clear to these people chasing my members around the hall here, or harassing them at the airports, or going to their homes. We won't be intimidated by these people."

Naturally, progs are flipping out:
"these people" …where have I heard that?

Also called ‘constituents’.

Nor will his constituents and the rest of the people be intimidated by him. VOTE.

Ummm, it’s not harassment. It’s called using your voice. Deal with it or resign.

1. They are not “your” members sir. They are pickup servants. They answer to us – “the public”
2. Those people? They are constituents. They are the people who elected those members and whom those members are supposed to be representing.

To be clear. What you are saying is the voters don't matter and don't have a voice?

"We're not going to listen to constituents with real concerns that might get in the way of us accomplishing our craven goal of getting a conservative court." -Mitch McConnell's id.

"These people" would be better described as "my constituents" and "assault survivors" you cretenous chelonian throwback.

The truth hurts.
From your lips to Senate Republicans’ ears, Mitch.
Thank you, @senatemajldr 🇺🇸
