Amply be-chinned #MoscowMitch McConnell is a-gunnin’ for Corporate America

Amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell is warning corporate America that he’s gonna gun for them:

“My warning, if you will, to corporate America is to stay out of politics. It’s not what you’re designed for. And don’t be intimidated by the left into taking up causes that put you right in the middle of America’s greatest political debates.”

— Sen. Mitch McConnell

That takes some brass. Ol’ #MoscowMitch doesn’t understand the employer-employee relationship, and seems to think he can call the shots.

(Hat tip: Scissorheads Baron vonBeavis and M Davis, literally within seconds of each other.)

    Hmmm, I wonder… How many campaign fund checks from American corporations Ol’ Mitch has had to return during his political career. We can’t have corporations getting involved in politics ya know.

    Must admit, I stole this:
    BREAKING NEWS: The Republican National Committee announced today that the Republican Party is changing its emblem from an elephant to a condom. The committee Chairman explained that the condom more clearly reflects the party’s stance today, because a condom accepts inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects a bunch of dicks, and gives you a sense of security while you’re actually getting screwed.

  5. Christ all-fucking-mighty the Supreme Court case trying to overthrow the corporate donation limits on campaign contributions literally has his name on it.

    They shitting bricks over this stuff, aren’t they. Corporations should stay out of politics, Wee the pipples should stay out of politics, the Democrats should stay outta politics, err “be less partisan”.

    He’s getting kinda specific here: He’s saying OUT LOUD IN DETAIL for everyone to hear that the GQP are the only legitimate rulers of this country. AND THEY KNOW THERE ARE MORE OF US THAN THERE ARE OF THEM

    Well he was Trump’s lapdog when TFG was in charge, and he was simultaneously allied with Putin to diminish us as a country hence the moniker “Moscow Mitch.” Now in his infinite wisdom he’s attacking the titans of industry? I’m thinking he has an inflated view of his powers and responsibilities, but lacking the intellectual horsepower to pull it off. we’ll see if Pissing off big business shuts off the money spigot. And speaking of dogs well…

    Hey Mitch, don’t sh*t where you eat. And, this is what it looks like when a turtle is running scared.

    Would he like to extend that warning to the US Chamber of Commerce as well? Seems logical.

    Why are people still listening to that corrupt old gas bag? His day is done. Never underestimate how clever and sneaky he is, but he is getting old. He will be leaving. The times are changing again.

    I wish the GQP would just move to Russia and get it over with. Let them see how open Putin is to their ideas. Fucking posers, the lot of them.

    Dead fish flopping. And to think, he worked so hard convincing everyone that corporations are people too. Specifically, people with a political voice. Damn you unintended consequences.
