The Comity of the Senate

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) scolded Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) on the Senate floor Thursday for allegedly mocking him while he delivered a solemn speech on Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan.

Jeepers, how could he not mock Foghorn Leghorn LiverLips McConnel? My admiration for Franken grows by leaps and bounds!

“This is not ‘Saturday Night Live,’ Al,” McConnell said, making reference to Franken’s career as a writer and actor on NBC’s long-running comedy show, according to a witness who overheard the exchange.

    Mitch is correct. The Senate definitely isn’t SNL. It isn’t that serious. Or truthful.

    Ever noticed how Mitch McConnell bears an eerie resemblance to Jesse Helms? Is it possible that Mr. Helms was….resurrected?

    And, yet, the failure to do the people’s work is A-OK with this cartoon character?
