Last week, Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell did something that a lot of people didn’t like: he told one of his colleagues, Senator Elizabeth Warren, to sit down and shut up.
So when McConnell flew home to Kentucky last weekend and learned that there were a few dozen protesters at the airport terminal waiting to tell him they were unhappy with his actions, McConnell used his influence as a Very Important Person to persuade airport officials to allow a car to pick him up on the tarmac so he wouldn’t have to go into the terminal to face the protesters.
If he had the guts to make such a controversial call then he should have had the guts to be accountable for his actions. McConnell clearly lacks the courage of his convictions. (Although The Curmudgeon would argue that in reality McConnell actually has no convictions, but that’s a whole different matter.)
