That guy happens to be Kevin Vickers, the Canadian Parliament Seargeant At Arms, who stopped a shooter that entered Parliament. After showing up to work as normal the next day as though it was just part of his job, like a boss, he gets a well-deserved standing ovation.
If you need a reason to vote in November, however selective it may be about ignoring the RINO vs. Dem fights that mean exactly nothing, here’s some good news. Tom Cotton is up eight points over a man well on his way to be former Senator Mark Pryor. Cotton is supported by the SCF, so he’s one of the good ones.
Given comments like Hensarling’s latest traipse into amnesty territory and the choice between the two turd sandwiches in the Kentucky race, voting may not be a priority for you. Heck, even I’ll go vote just to take my frustrations out on that Karl Rove friend Ed Gillespie. But whatever you do, do not stay home in November.
Even if you don’t subscribe to the utterly futile hold-your-nose method of voting for Republicans (and I’m right there with you) there is still a point to voting. Despite the losers at the top of the ballots in many states, there may well be lesser-known conservatives who need your support down-ticket and will suffer electorally if you focus only on the bad. Besides, the horrified shock of a few well-deserving RINOs finally getting their pink slips won’t be the same if you’re not part of it. Go vote and make yourself heard.
McConnell may just be satisfied that election momentum is in his favor, and that conservatives will once again hold their noses for more promises of a greater good. For whatever reason, McConnell spoke up to agree with Obama. On Ebola. He must be employing one of those ever so successful RINO strategies that worked for Presidents McCain and Romney.
This is just the latest reminder that McConnell needs to go, courtesy of Mitch McConnell. If returns to the Senate and takes charge of the Republicans there, the opposition caucus to the Democrats will be as effectively nonexistent as it was the last four years. If he loses, what happens? Grimes will be a rubber-stamping Reidbot, but she can’t prevent opposition to the Democrats. McConnell can, and he will.
Give it some thought. Six years of regretting you sent back the Senate Opposition Prevention Leader is a long time.
My, how times change.
We had people treating Obama like a cult of personality not so long ago and now? They’re leaving his speeches before he’s done. In a blue state. It can’t be good for his ego, and it’s long overdue that took a hit. It may well be the only comeuppance he ever gets for the damage he’s inflicted.
