Putin’s Man in DC, Redoux

Moscow Mitch
(H/T Raw Story via Skinny Dennis)

Nancy Pelosi —speaking at a closed-door meeting of her caucus — reportedly tore amply be-chinned #MoscowMitch a new hole, charging that he’s acting like a rogue leader. (Fact check: TRUE!) Unnamed sources later told CNN that Pelosi then “mused that sometimes she wonders whether McConnell has Russian connections.”

No d’uh.

Now, you might be old enough to remember last summer when the hashtag #MoscowMitch began trending after the WaPo (correctly) ran an op-ed saying that McConnell “is, arguably more than any other American, doing Russian president Vladimir Putin’s bidding,” it sent the be-chinned One into an uncharacteristic frenzy, jowls all-awattale and he spoke, officially, on the floor of the Senate:

“I was called unpatriotic, un-American, and, essentially, treasonous by a couple of left-wing pundits on the basis of boldfaced lies. I was accused of ‘aiding and abetting’ the very man I’ve singled out as our adversary and opposed for nearly 20 years: Vladimir Putin.”

So far, I’ve not seen anything of a repeat performance, but I’m looking forward to it if Pelosi’s quote gets picked up and #MoscowMitch starts trending again. (Hint) Shame if that happened again, wouldn’t it?(/Hint)
