Looks like Minority Leader Mitch McConnell finally found an issue to run on:
Classy, eh? Note that it is coming from his campaign. A Senate aide emailed Ezra Klein
, speculating that McConnell actually wanted Harry Reid to go nuclear, so that then "He can throw his hands up and say, well, they nuked us, so I can’t stop their nominations, and he can spend more time raising money." Guess he proved that theory right. He's not even waiting for Reid to actually go nuclear to start raising money.
Meanwhile, he's trying to pretend that the caucus he leads is anxious to come to some kind of agreement with Reid. Unbelievable. Knock yourself out, Mitch. Meanwhile, President Obama and the Senate Democrats can maybe get back to doing what the public wants: governing.
