McConnell (Shitbag - KY) wants companies out of politics


?s=20

This is great new right? With the GOP on board, the Democrats should unveil a Constitutional amendment to turn over Citizens United TOMORROW... right? I mean, it would pass unanimously, right? If McConnell really wants companies out of politics???

3. Do the lobbyists for these companies still write new legislation?

Don't the companies spend tons of money on donations to the Repukes? Moscow Mitch is willing to give that up? After all, he can't have it both ways.

Mitchy sounds like he's flirting with dementia of late. Is it just me that thinks that?

Or is it that he just wants to hear from corporations when they are putting money in his pocket?

7. Nicolle Wallace & her panel of 3 former Repubs could hardly contain their guffaws...

Michael Steele was part of the panel. The look on their faces was absolutely priceless.

29. I meant "guffaws" figuratively, sorry. Should have said "mirth," as more accurate...

The look on their faces was still priceless.

11. The Republican party has become the cliche of that kid

The one who always liked hanging out at the junkyard, throwing bottles at rats with his friends. Well, the friends have grown up and started taking their lives seriously, maybe they barely notice him now when they see him on street; if they they do they just sort of shake their heads. But he's still down there at the junkyard every weekend wondering where all his buddies went.

18. That's tough, Senator

Too bad you couldn't repeal "turnabout is fair play" while your good friend Donald Trump was squatting in the Oval Office. Because your protests now ring pretty hollow after so many years of courting and using monied corporate interests to do your bidding and screw over so many Americans.

25. Too bad I can't like each of these individual posts.

The hypocrisy in that statement by the turtle is eye-popping. Along with stomach turning. Then again it's hard to find a more repulsive figure in politics today than the turtle. Trump is close, but he only got to spew his poison for fours years. The turtle has been disgorging his venom and gawd awfulness for way too many years. He has literally transformed from human into an evil incarnate Gollum looking creature over the years.

26. But what about corporate personhood?

What about corporations being people with free speech rights?

You wanna push a constitutional ammendment limiting their power? I'm game.
