Mitch McConnell: Proud Moment When I Told Obama 'You Will Not Fill This Supreme Court Vacancy'

Says about all you need to know about Mitch McConnell and his sad legacy in the U.S. Senate.
Views:

On Saturday, McConnell spoke at the annual Fancy Farm picnic, one of Kentucky's premier political events of the summer. He called this "one of the proudest moments" of his political career, a moment of complete intransigence and thumbing his nose at America's democratic traditions by denying a sitting U.S. President's nominee to the Supreme Court even a hearing. A stark reminder of the realpolitik practiced by Mitch McConnell, and fitting that he should cite this as one of proudest moments. Certainly a defining one.
