Sen. Rick Scott is running to unseat Minority Leader Mitch McConnell as the top Republican in the Senate, he announced in a note to GOP colleagues Tuesday first obtained by Fox News Digital.
Scott, R-Fla., the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), has been at odds with McConnell. R-Ky., for most of this year over political strategy. Scott is also more closely aligned with former President Donald Trump, who has called for McConnell to be removed as Senate Republican leader.
Now, of course it was Sen. Scott’s plan —in writing no less!— to kill Social Security and Medicare and increase taxes on the poor (to put there “skin in the game,” which coming from Batboy seems especially creep) to finance more tax breaks for his billionaire buddiess that maybe/sorta/kinda got We the Peeeples alarm bells ringing and to the polls to Stop! Thief! So it is very funny to me that BatBoy is trying to shift the blame to The Turtle:
After disappointing elections for Republicans in which they failed to take the majority from Democrats, Scott has been one of the loudest voices calling for Senate leadership elections to be delayed recently.
“The leadership in the Republican Senate says, ‘No, you cannot have a plan, we’re just going to run against how bad the Democrats are.’ And actually then they cave into the Democrats,” Scott said on “Sunday Morning Futures.” “Now they want to rush through an election. … They don’t want to do any assessment of what we’ve done wrong.”
And that takes some brass when what they’ve done wrong was let this Noseratu run their failed election.
I understand that I won’t gain the support of every member of our Conference, but we all have a clear choice to make. If you simply want to stick with the status quo, don’t vote for me.
Eiron, the Goddess of Irony stared at Batboy’s letter, slack-jawed.
