“Mitch McConnell froze up in public again, the second such incident in the last few weeks. He just stood there silently —  a gentle, childlike smile flickering across his face, probably for the first time since the Truman administration. In that moment, while Mitch McConnell’s dying brain struggled and failed to make sense of its present reality, all the dourness was gone from his face. All the downward gravitational pull from a lifetime in the DC swamp. All the seriousness. All the scheming. All the warmongering, tyranny and abusiveness. In that moment of amnesiac innocence, you’d never be able to tell from looking at Mitch McConnell how many people he’s helped kill. … All you’d see is a man. A cute, harmless, befuddled old man.” (08/31/23)
