loving this pod more and more. so! Mitch McConnell really is the soulless pragmatist that he seemed to be. there's some kind of sour comfort in having my suspicions confirmed and documented.

McConnell's pragmatism in working beyond Trump's behavior (disturbing as that is I agree) pales in harmful impact compared to allowing activist judges to flourish. Sometimes you just have to choose the lesser of two evils.
