You know how people compare Mitch McConnell with a turtle? [View all]

Turtles are noble creatures. They embody a level of self-awareness and integrity that escapes the senator from Kentucky.

As a herpetologist, I'd like to see comparisons between the senator and his superiors come to an end.

Here are some turtles I've known. They're better than McConnell. McConnell is unworthy of the comparison.
