Mitch McConnell is the gravedigger of democracy.

I've said this in threads enough times that I figured I should just make an OP:

Mitch McConnell is the gravedigger of democracy.

As long as he's getting what he wants, he's going to keep going. If Trump's voted out, he'll continue to obstruct as he did with Obama. He rushed dozens and dozens of judge nominations through when he knew he could get his friends from the Federalist Society on the bench, and withheld nominations for years under Obama until there was a shortage and a crisis. This is all in addition to his blatant theft of Merrick Garland's seat on the SCOTUS.

He's super rich, insanely powerful, completely out of touch with any constituency that doesn't include other extremely wealthy and powerful people like himself. He will actively harm the poor, women, POC, LGBTQ+, and immigrants, because none of those people even exist in any meaningful way for him. They're (we're) an abstraction. He will suppress votes, gerrymander, lie, cheat, block Senate votes, obstruct, whatever he thinks he needs to do to give his party the tiniest edge. Not even because he believes in the party, but because it will keep him in power.

Taking back the senate should be the Democratic Party's and the DNC's order of business #1. The GOP stranglehold on the Senate must be broken, and in the 2020 election, there are enough GOP candidates defending that it would be possible. That blue wave has to come back again and wash over the Senate.

White House will turn blue.

Senate will turn blue.

2. DUer csziggy had a fantastic idea - McConnell as the Grim Reaper.

snip...

Each ad or billboard should highlight one piece of legislation that McConnell has blocked in the Senate. The ads could be targeted at parts of the country where those particular laws were popular.

Just put the law or issue addressed on a tombstone and a picture of McConnell with his creepy smile and the "Grim Reaper" label. Very simple and very direct.




Dems should do something like this.
