To put it mildly, the Left hates President Donald Trump with the fire of a thousand suns. To be fair, they also hate non-GMO free products with the same fire, so it’s not that big of a deal. However, among political figures, Trump is number one, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell coming in at number two. Whether it’s blocking House bills that have more riders than a horse at a kid’s party working straight commission or filling judicial posts, the hatred towards McConnell is visceral and real.

Recently, Leftists have decided to try to go after McConnell after the recent mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton. Some have congregated outside of his house and shouted vulgar and violent comments (all in the name of stopping gun violence, of course). Others, like Tim Ryan (one of the clowns in the current 2020 Democrat Presidential clown car…yeah, I don’t know who he is either), are organizing a march from Ohio to Kentucky to protest McConnell’s reluctance to pass House bills designed to make gun laws tougher.

Before the aforementioned horse gets exhausted, let’s take a look at Senator McConnell.

Mitch McConnell

What the Left thinks it means – the epitome of Republican/fascist evil and inaction, a Russian asset who refused to hold Donald Trump accountable

What it really means – the personification of karma

When I first started paying attention to McConnell, I have to say I wasn’t impressed. Based on what I saw of his actions on behalf of his ideology, it seemed he would dive to the left faster than Rickey Henderson trying to avoid a pickoff attempt at first base. As time went on, however, he’s proven himself to be a long range strategist and a thorn in the Left’s side because he plays by the rules they set up.

Remember Merrick Garland? Using a Senate tradition going back decades, McConnell said the Senate would not take up his nomination to the Supreme Court in 2016 because it was an election year. From then on, McConnell was in the Leftist crosshairs. From that point on, McConnell did little to endear himself to the Left, including reprimanding Senator Elizabeth “Chief Running Mouth” Warren after she violated Senate rules by attacking the character of a fellow Senator at a confirmation hearing. Nevertheless, she persisted to make an ass of herself, but that’s a story for another time.

Then, there was the use of the “nuclear option” that former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid used to try to fill judicial vacancies during President Barack Obama’s tenure. McConnell advised it would backfire on the Left, and once the Senate went back into Republican hands, it did. And the Left got mad…der.

I think that’s one of the main drivers behind the Left’s hatred of McConnell: he’s holding the Left to their words and actions, which exposes their short-sightedness and hypocrisy. It’s not hard to do, but high profile Republicans who do it are few and far between. And McConnell is the king of comebacks. Over the past 2 years, McConnell has been given any number of nicknames (Cocaine Mitch, The Grim Reaper of the Senate, Moscow Mitch), all of which designed to denigrate him, but his team and him roll with the punches using the one thing Leftists can’t stand when responding to their rhetoric.

Humor.

Although Leftists claim they have a better sense of humor than the Right, they don’t take it very well when their ideas get mocked. (And apparently they’ve never seen Amy Schumer’s recent stand-up specials, which were as well-received as a pig roast in Tel Aviv during Hanukkah). Leftists count on an emotional response to their rhetoric, but they don’t expect that response to be laughter. To put it another way, they can dish it out, but they can’t take it. Using a little mental and comedic jujitsu, McConnell has been able to not just get legislative and judicial victories, but drive Leftists crazy…well, crazier at least, in the process. So, win-win.

This is not to say McConnell is perfect, but to deny his effectiveness as a leader is folly. Where past Republican leaders were wishy-washy and willing to meet the Left halfway on issues (while never getting the same consideration from the Left, by the way), McConnell at least has some idea of how to draw a line in the sand and stick to it. Whether it’s advancing President Trump’s agenda or stymieing the Left’s agenda, he has learned the value of strategizing towards achieving a goal and finding the best possible path to make it a reality.

Mitch McConnell’s job description is a lot like hot dogs: you don’t want to know how you get to the end result. That, and both go really well with mustard, ketchup, and relish. The results are what matter most, along with Leftists’ heads exploding along the way. For that, Cocaine Mitch and his Mitchettes deserve our respect and support.
