Will McConnell retire rather than resign?

I almost feel sorry for Mitch McConnell. Almost.

He has represented Kentucky in the Senate since 1985. He has been the leader of the Senate Republicans since 2007. He is a master tactician.

He should be honored and feted by the Republican Party for everything that he has accomplished during…

Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Worse than nothing.

Things started out so well. Biden…

Republicans are encouraging dangerous behavior

Something very dangerous happened in the House of Representatives this week. Representative Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) was censured and removed from his committee assignments on November 17.

This is the second time that a Republican representative has threatened to kill Democratic colleagues and the Republican leadership team has done nothing.
