Fox Non-news recently ran a story. Now, I usually am loath to write about any Fox story unless it involves something like Tucker Carlson demonstrating what an idiot he is. However, this story was interesting because it suggests something about a very loathed politician and also suggests an idea — which is unintentionally quite amusing.
So, in this article, written by Deroy Murdock, there is s suggestion that people are souring on everyone’s least favorite turtle, Moscow Mitch. The article says that some in the GOP are frustrated with his capitulation to the Democrats on such things as raising the Debt Limit. And he suggests that Mitch be “toppled.”
This is not the first article I have read on frustrations with the turtle. But part two of MY article will focus on just who Murdock thinks should replace McConnell. This is one for the books. It is Louisiana Senator John Kennedy.
This is just utterly hysterical in my opinion — but not in the writer of that article’s opinion. The article is a virtual love letter to Kennedy.
“For his next act of defiance, Kennedy should topple the exhausted chairman of the Senate Cave-in Caucus.”
“Seeing Senator John Kennedy stand tall in McConnell’s shoes would give the conservatives the last laugh.”
Let’s talk about this. Kennedy is one of the few Republicans who scares me. He doesn’t scare me because of his views. He frightens me because he really does seem straight out of the film “Psycho” — with a bit of “The Shining” mixed in.
Kennedy is that guy you look at and think, “This man has secrets, and I don’t want to know what they are.” He’s indeed a colorful character and vulgar, rather bizarre, and one whose eyes hold a bit of a maniacal gleam that makes me very uneasy. So we will see if this bizarre idea gains any traction.
