Just after the Senate blocked any new anti-violence legislation — in front of several Americans who lost family members in the Newtown massacre — Mitch McConnell posted this “meme” on his Facebook page.
Eighteen hours later it was still up.
While the Senate Minority Leader was unsuccessful in his primary goal — depriving President Obama of a second term — he was able to stand with the NRA to defeat expanded background checks, new gun trafficking laws along with bans on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.
It’s with cynicism like this that McConnell hopes to fend off his greatest fear in life, a Tea Party primary challenge as he faces re-election in 2014.
