My, speaking of "Grandma McConnell"...
Ethics groups blame AWOL McConnell

Frustrated by Sen. Jim DeMint’s (R-S.C.) vow to hold up ethics conference talks until earmark reforms are enacted, Democrats and watchdog groups are pointing a finger at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).
McConnell is standing idle while DeMint keeps a unanimously approved ethics bill in limbo, Democrats and watchdogs charge. By pressuring the Senate GOP and its leader, not merely the affable freshman who has become the face of the opposition, reform advocates hope to end the Senate’s ethics logjam without forcing a difficult procedural vote to silence DeMint.
“Some of the inmates may be running the asylum over there,” the Democratic aide said. “McConnell needs to decide whether he wants to lead or let a few overzealous members of his party run the caucus.”
At the first sign of weakness Grandma, they're all over you. Good luck.
