Sometimes it's fun to right clever lead ins to posts. Other times, the material can speak for itself. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you, Mitch McConnell, hypocrite (from April 2005 interview with Larry Kudlow).

KUDLOW: But before we break, we're going to come back with you, sir. Before we break, I just want to roll back. Why did Mr. Reid change his mind? You're saying a few years ago, he believed all judges deserved a vote. Why has he suddenly changed his mind? It wouldn't have anything to do with partisan politics, would it?
Sen. McCONNELL: Well, I think they're having a difficult time adjusting to last November's election ... I mean, after all, the president won ... We gained four seats in the
Senate. People expect us to be able to govern. And...
KUDLOW: So this is a strategy and it's gone beyond
judges. It's going to go into tax cuts and energy and ANWR and John Bolton in the UN. This is just a strategy as though there were no election last November. Isn't that basically what's going on here?
Sen. McCONNELL: Well, that's part of it, and, you know, I think it's important for them to remember that obstructionism was a big issue that helped us get the
Senate back in `02...
KUDLOW: Indeed.
Sen. McCONNELL: ...and a big issue last year...
KUDLOW: Right.
Sen. McCONNELL: ...that helped us expand our majority.
I don't think obstructionism sells very well to the American people. It's not a great political tactic in my judgment.

Mitch McChinless? Haha

Mitch was also vehemently for campaign finance reform when he was in the minority in the late 80's and then pulled a Uturn when he was in the majority.

Hopefully his judgement will be proven correct and his obstructionism will be the downfall of the Republicans in 08.
