Last night the House GOP stood together, moderates and conservatives, and opposed Barack Obama's socialist stimulus scheme.
Today, Mitch McConnell is going to address the Republican National Committee's winter meeting. According to Roll Call, in his speech McConnell intends to outline a "post partisan path" to leadership that "could also provide a rallying cry for old-line Republicans to reassert their authority within the party" — the same old guard that supported the Bridge to Nowhere and capitulated repeated to President Clinton when he was in office.
Already, McConnell has been favorably quoting Bob Dole on the need to compromise with the Democrats.
So here's what we need to do. I've said he lost his testicles and is now spreading a cancer of capitulation throughout the Senate Republican Conference. We need to send Mitch some balls.
We're teaming up with the Don't Go Movement to do just that. Go here and send Mitch some balls. The House GOP can hold the line. Mitch and the Senate GOP should do the same and oppose the stimulus bill.
Mail the balls to Mitch's Louisville Office:
Sen. Mitch McConnell
601 W. Broadway
Louisville, KY 40202
Phone: (502) 582-6304
They can donate them to a local youth program, I'm sure. And they'll get the point. And thanks to Don't Go for helping us spread the word.
The Senate GOP Leadership needs to stand up for the GOP, not kowtow to the Democrats.
