A Quick Lesson in the Electoral System for Conservatives

Senators represent their states. Congressmen represent their districts. They do not represent your particular ideology.
An influential array of ultra-conservative leaders is calling on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to resign, calling him a “failure” who “has cost Republicans almost a year of victories.”
McConnell is sort of signaling that they can go fuck themselves.

What those imbeciles on the Right are ignoring is that McConnell spent many years sabotaging Obama's agenda and now the Democrats have turned the tables. The Batshit-Wingnuts want McConnell to scrap the tools that he used so effectively. Which McConnell won't do because he knows that the worm always turns. If he scraps the tools of obstruction, then the day will come when the Democrats have control and the GOP won't be able to do anything to slow things down.

Being able to slow shit down in the Senate is exactly what the Founders intended. The ultra-right isn't "conservative", they're fascists. They have no loyalty to the Constitution (which, by the way, is the one thing that sitting presidents, senators and congressmen are sworn to defend).

Just like the Old Toddler who is sitting in the Oval Office, who knows as much about the Constitution as your average long-eared equine draft animal.

Yeah, McConnell is a thief and a prick, but it's a safe bet that his ass is effectively covered.
Again, credit where it is due.
