Here is the twenty-third article in our Republicans on Parade series, featuring individuals who personify what the Republican Party has become. Today’s honoree is Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), aka Bought Bitch Mitch. He is being honored for a pile of BS deep enough to drown every race horse in Kentucky.

BoughtBitchMitchMitch McConnell’s re-election campaign is touting his support for the Violence Against Women Act — even though the Republican Senate minority leader has a consistent record of voting against the anti-domestic violence legislation.

A press packet that McConnell’s spokeswoman distributed to reporters at a Friday event titled “Women For Team Mitch” features testimonials from Kentucky women. One of them caught the eye of Joe Sonka, a reporter for the Louisville-based LEO Weekly, who posted it on Twitter.

The quote, attributed to a woman named Angela Leet in Jefferson County, read, “Mitch was the co-sponsor of the original Violence Against Women Act- and continues to advocate for stronger policies to protect women. I am proud to call him my senator.”

The claim belies the Republican leader’s actual record… [emphasis added]

Bought Bitch Mitch, is the top Republican in the US Senate.  What better example could there be to illustrate the Republican Party’s nonexistent relationship with both women and integrity.

  1. WOW! I'm speechless.

  2. What a huge pile of fertiliser!  Thanks TC.

  3. McConnell accused Grimes of adopting “the Barack Obama playbook to try to divide people with gender based attacks. We have seen that all too often and some of it has started already. But look, this campaign is about what kind of America do we want to have and what kind of Kentucky do we want to have.

    In my opinion, be it ever so humble, McTurtle does not show commitment to the kind of America and the kind of Kentucky that voters need and want. In fact, he shows no tangible indication that he even knows what the voters want.  He is too wrapped up in Republicanus/Teabagger rhetoric and deceipt!  

    McTurtle, you can RUN for office again, but you cannot HIDE from your record! Tell us again how you have supported women with your vote!  If anyone is trying to divide people, it is McTurtle with his lies! 

    In 2014 and beyond, the only good Republicanus/Teabagger is an unemployed Republicanus/Teabagger!

  4. No to go all Godwin, but Rethuglicans have long embraced Hitler's recommendation that it's ALWAYS best to go with "The Big Lie".

    "The size of the lie is a definite factor in causing it to be believed….  The primitive simplicity of their [“the vast masses”] minds renders them a more easy prey to a big lie than a small one….”

  5. Mitch is never afraid to lie.  He has three opponents this time, unheard of before, so I have some hope that the embarassment of having him as my senator will go away.

  6. Sadly, I do not have the way with words, the eloquence of all those who have sent in replies regarding Dumbshit McConnell. So Mitch, you asshole, this message is kept deliberately simple so that even one of your limited mentality can understand: FUCK YOU!

  7. Team Bitch (Mitch) for Women…. Yeah Right

    Hypocrite and I agree with James Thompson, Fuck You…. :smile:
