The only downside to Mitch McConnell’s no longer being majority leader is that I cannot call this post The Majority & Marjorie Show. Otherwise he is not missed in his former role, especially after he briefly tried to stay in power after Senators Ossoff and Warnock were sworn in. What is it with GOPers hugging so tightly to power as if it were a MyPillow? It’s a new fad I could do without.
Everything the Turtle does is tactical. As the most cynical man in American politics, he views QAnon more as a menace to a future majority than a menace to society. It’s unclear how long unhinged wingnuttery will be in fashion and Mitch likes to be on the winning side of every battle.
The main reason his comments about Marjorie Taylor Greene are noteworthy is that he’s butting into the House’s business. It’s a sign that the Turtle knows that KMac was a weak and feckless leader even before he was deballed by Pennywise.
“Loony lies and conspiracy theories are cancer for the Republican Party and our country,” McConnell said in a statement that did not mention Greene by name. “Somebody who’s suggested that perhaps no airplane hit the Pentagon on 9/11, that horrifying school shootings were pre-staged, and that the Clintons crashed JFK Jr.’s airplane is not living in reality.”
He forgot to mention pedophilia and pizza. It’s not QAnon without pizza and pedophilia.
The QAnon lady, who is the first stalker ever elected to Congress, responded on the tweeter tube:
The real cancer for the Republican Party is weak Republicans who only know how to lose gracefully.
This is why we are losing our country.

Mitch McConnell a graceful loser? The Grim Reaper? The man who vowed to smother Barack Obama’s presidency in the crib. Graceful? Are you deranged? Why am I stating the obvious?
After 4 years of abject sycophancy, the two Macs deserve each other and Marjorie Taylor Greene.
She’s the headache aspirin can’t cure.
She’s the heartburn Pepto-Bismol can’t help
She’s the hemorrhoid that Preparation-H can’t soothe.
The cancer analogy is perfect. She needs to be excised from the body politic before the cancer spreads. QAnon is as dangerous as it is stupid. That goes for Marjorie Taylor Greene as well.
That concludes this episode of The Mitch & Marjorie Show.
Since I have pizza on my mind, the last word goes to Lou Monte:
