Amply Be-chinned Mitch: ‘Nevertheless, She Persisted’

Mitch McConnell

Mitch McConnell

As we all know by now, amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell took an unusual parliamentary procedure and combined with with an equally obscure Senate rule and dropped a hammer on Sen. Elizabeth Warren for reading a 1980s-era letter from Coretta Scott King into the record. The letter —already in evidence from way back— urges the Senate to not confirm Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III for a federal judiciary position because of his noted and on-going racism.

Warren, according to the display of arcane rules, was impugning the reputation of a Senator, and her rebuke is that she will not be allowed to speak during the debate on Sessions.

Following the shocking silencing of Sen. Elizabeth Warren last night (and when you think about it, Coretta Scott King), Twitter went wild ride and a trending phrase — from Mitch hisself — resulted, Nevertheless she persisted.

You can search Twitter for many, Many, MANY more examples. He gave the Left, and especially women a rallying cry.

We’ve long said that McConnell has a brilliant grasp of the tools of his trade; he’s a tactician that can execute a nearly decade-long blockade of a sitting administration.

But McConnell is not a person of vision nor a strategist: every time he pulls one of these stunts against Warren, she gets stronger. He tried to stop Warren from being the first Consumer Protection Bureau administrator, she became a Senator. Mitch might have just propelled her into running for the White House.

    Thanks Mitch. Methinks you and your ilk have awoken a sleeping giant with Rule 19 from Planet 9.
