If you have read our editorials, you know we have a very special place in our hearts for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. He really does exude the image of a Washington insider who does nothing for a living, yet he makes a ton of money doing so.

McConnell always seems to be ‘angling’ for something, but the problem for all of the people he represents is that he almost always is angling for himself, not them.

Latest example, McConnell decided, after Trump offered his wife a position in the new Trump administration, that all this ‘nonsense’ about Vladimir Putin hacking into the U.S. electoral system is just that. How very convenient and how very typical, for a man who has made a living by doing absolutely nothing. Keep those welfare checks coming.
