Mitch McConnell got back from the hospital after suffering a fall at his home in Louisville, Kentucky, Sunday. Normally, this would not be a cause for anything more than a sympathy card, but for the fact that 30 Americans died this weekend in two gun bloodbaths, and Democrats were eager to cancel the August Senate recess and get gun control legislation passed. Axios:

The big picture: The injury comes as a number of Democrats and some Republicans have called upon McConnell to cancel the Senate’s August recess so that lawmakers can pass gun control legislation in the aftermath of two deadly mass shootings this weekend. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi demanded on Sunday that Senate Republicans put an end to to their “outrageous obstruction,” referencing McConnell’s refusal to bring two background check bills passed in the House this year for a vote on the Senate floor.

Here’s Pelosi’s full statement:

“In less than 24 hours, another American community has been devastated by the tragedy of gun violence. The hearts of all Americans break for the families and friends of those injured and murdered, and our prayers go out to everyone impacted in this latest act of terror. We give thanks for the brave first responders, who rushed into harm’s way to save lives and ensured that everyone received the care and support they needed.

“We cannot allow another family or another community to suffer the pain and anguish of gun violence. We have a responsibility to the people we serve to act. The Republican Senate must stop their outrageous obstruction and join the House to put an end to the horror and bloodshed that gun violence inflicts every day in America. Enough is enough.

“May it be a comfort to the entire Dayton community that so many Americans grieve with and pray for them at this terrible time.”

With all due respect to McConnell, maybe somebody else could handle the matter and business as usual can proceed. Pelosi is right about taking immediate action before more lives are lost.

I have thoughts for Moscow Mitch but I have exhausted my prayers on deserving people which doesn’t include Moscow Mitch.

Me and my friend used to say (excuse language please) – “Fuck those bitches, we’ll pray for them” Our God understands.

Karma, if you believe in it for MM. He may believe he’ll get through this life unscathed because he’s the almighty MM, but he won’t.

Oh, the best part is coming for Moscow Mitch. In a few more years, he’ll be dead and gone and everything he ever spent his political career defending dies with him. I once heard it said that long life for such creatures is the true Curse of Cain, living long enough to watch the world you knew fade away.

Yeeeaaahhh, I’m gonna need to see an actual statement of injury from the hospital proving he’s actually hurt instead of just hiding out at home like the coward he is.

Maybe Moscow Mitch could resign and retire to a dacha outside Moscow to heal?

I am just mean enough to regret that another vital body part on McConnell wasn’t broken instead.

I understand Moscow just had a large fire in an industrial area building, he could set up a cot in there, hang a bunch of army blankets around his cot to brake the freaking cold drafts, OR his wife could buy the place fix it up and paint the inside and outside with pink paint and hang a large sign on the building, “Moscow Mitch, best Russian agent in years !!”,.

What, Russia doesn’t have enough fires going with their Siberian wilderness blazes? Seriously, though, all their fires reflect a nation that is anything but on the rise. To paraphrase a Russian official, when Putin goes, Russia goes.

Take a close look at that beautiful gun in MM’s hand in the top picture, hand made of steel, polished brass and smooth finished Walnut … and here is the best part, you get ONE shot, as the piece of flint in the clamp of the firing mechanism, scrapes across the steel, flings sparks into a little groove full of black powder, that passes the ensuing flash into the black powder packed into the back end of the barrel. behind the patched and rammed in ball of lead about 1/2″ in diameter, even with spiral grooves on the inside of… Read more »
