After having won reelection in November and then proceeding to stab conservative voters in the back, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has set his sights on writing his memoir. It is the epitome of arrogance that a sitting U.S. Senator would be so full of himself that he truly believes that the public is clamoring to hear his life’s story. But our fine national collection of career blood-suckers who live high off the hog on the taxpayer dole have no shame and is there really a more shameless politician than Addison Mitchell McConnell Jr.?
As reported by Politico in the story “Mitch McConnell penning a tell-all book”:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is writing his memoir, tentatively titling it “The Long Game.”
In an interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday, McConnell said that the book would tell his story of growing up with polio in Alabama and his career as a lawmaker.
It’s hard for me to believe it’s been four decades in politics,” the Kentucky Republican said, adding that the book would touch upon some of the important political figures of his time, including President Barack Obama and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).
McConnell has served in the Senate since 1985, winning reelection last November after beating back a difficult primary challenge from businessman Matt Bevin.
McConnell has begun writing the book, which he said will be a “candid assessment of the people I’ve worked with and negotiated with and some of the challenges and opportunities we’ve had over some 30 years in the Senate.”
A release date has not been announced, and McConnell will meet with publishers this summer. The AP also reported that Washington attorney Robert Barnett will represent McConnell during the talks. Barnett has also represented Obama, former President George W. Bush and former Vice President Dick Cheney.
The Senate majority leader said he would have help in writing the book, saying that his past job as minority leader from 2007 to 2015 did not permit him to start writing.
“This job I’ve had in the past eight years is like standing in front of a fire hose; it just keeps coming at you,” he said.
Standing “in front of a fire hose” is a very fitting metaphor in that it is long overdue for the American people to clean up the toxic cesspool in Congress. The Politico story also references another insufferable gravy train rider, Harry Reid who is McConnell’s Democrat counterpart. The former Nevada Gaming Commissioner flogged his own life story in the book “The Good Fight: Hard Lessons from Searchlight to Washington”. You can grab a new paperback copy of Reid’s masturbatory epic on Amazon for $13.45 but used copies are selling for as little as a penny which doesn’t include shipping costs. Reid’s book, like other political biographies more appropriately belongs moldering in a landfill somewhere as will McConnell’s own ode to himself.
While McConnell didn’t give any sort of a serious time table – I am sure that people are already dying to get their hands on a copy – he will undoubtedly remain firmly ensconced in Washington with the other moochers and looters. The turtle-faced one promises a “tell all” but somehow I suspect that he will gloss over stabbing voters in the back after they delivered his Congress a mandate for change in 2014. Ever since then he has been practically blowing Emperor Barack Obama by sabotaging any attempt to halt amnesty for illegal aliens, signing off on giving Obama God mode over a job-destroying trade deal and he is still working on renewing the USA PATRIOT Act.
As far as politicians go Mitch McConnell brings to mind the classic denunciation of Richard M. Nixon by gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson in that “he could shake your hand and stab you in the back at the same time”.
