The Peter Principle, which states that people in authority rise to the level of their incompetence, has no better poster child than GOP Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. Just as it appears the Tea Party has President Obama’s back to the wall on the debt limit issue, the owl-faced McConnell offers the president the deal of the century: the ability to raise the debt limit without congressional authority and to cut big government the instant hell freezes over. To say McConnell is an idiot is a disservice to the feeble minded.
It’s worth remembering that McConnell’s handpicked establishment hack, who ran in Kentucky’s GOP Senate primary in 2010, lost badly to the Tea Party-supported Rand Paul. Something tells me the victorious Paul should start a short list of handpicked Tea Party replacements for this particular feeble-minded GOP leader. In fact, it’s a little difficult to consider a man a “leader” when he wants to hand his legislative authority to the executive branch. A man that anxious to avoid doing his Constitutional duty should have it taken away – by the Tea Party and not Obama.
The cancer eating away the Republican Party has a name: Mitch McConnell. It’s time sleepy Republican voters woke up and threw out this particular bum.
