Amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell

Guys, amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell took Sen. Rick Scott to the ol’ woodshed for that 11-point plan Batboy released last week:

Mitch McConnell and Senate Republican leaders are warning Rick Scott that his agenda for the GOP could expose the party to unnecessary attacks this fall, a significant intraparty rebuke of the Floridian.

Copy that, yo!

The Senate minority leader, who has declined thus far to release a party agenda, advised Scott at a GOP leadership meeting on Monday afternoon that his 11-point proposal gave Democrats ammunition for millions of dollars of ads in the midterms, according to multiple people briefed on the exchange.

“Ah say, Ah say, boy, y’all don’t want to say what we’re FOR before an election!” Mitch didn’t say.  “What if, what if someone listens?”

The schism played out on into Tuesday at a leadership press conference. Scott exited the event abruptly just before McConnell castigated two of his proposals.

“Let me tell you what will not be a part of our agenda: We will not have as part of our agenda a bill that raises taxes on half the American people and sunsets Social Security and Medicare after five years. That will not be part of the Republican Senate majority agenda,” McConnell said.

“Not in public, anyway,” Mitch didn’t add with his trademark warm smile that makes children scream and dogs grow.

Scott declined to address the Monday meeting with McConnell, and said in a brief interview that he’s “not ever going to talk about private conversations, but I believe it’s important to tell people what we’re going to do.”

And then Scott returned to his true form and flapped his wings and disappeared into the night.

    What happened to him? What did he look like? Before he turned. Who are his people? How could they say that this is ok? Are they just waiting for the old geezer to die? So many questions!
    What about his wife? Secretary Elaine Chao!

    My mom used to tell me, don’t make that face! My grandparents used to tell me the same thing.
    I don’t know if this applies in a situation like Mitch McConnell, but I am here to tell you that i don’t make that face.

    You would think that by now Rick Scott should know that the republican agenda is determined by wind direction.
