There is a way some Republicans can show their anger with Mitch McConnell

...and he and the Republican Party will never forget it, and the leaders will be humiliated..

Those Republicans who believe that Mc Connell has betrayed this country by not letting everyone know what was going on with the hacking..and cared more about himself and his position and party..can do this single, simple and most effective thing: reduce Mc Connell's power and humiliate him by leaving the Republican Party and becoming Democrats.

That would leave a sting on the Republican party establishment that would never be forgotten. It would also, (provided 3 Republican senators did this) give a majority to the Democrats and effectively lesson Mc Connells power dramatically. There could be stronger opposition to Trump and his policies with the New Democratic Majority..

This may seem absurd, but it is the only way those that are unhappy with Mc Connell and Trump could powerfully oppose him.

1. It's a nice thought

But that would require more integrity and courage then many Republican senators possess...throughout their entire lives!!!

3. He may be scared, but that is not enough..

He needs to get what he has given. Humiliation and Destruction of his Power and Position.

His affront to Obama and this country needs to be dealt with and given back to him. This idea would do it, but I doubt there are enough Republican senators..perhaps not even one...who would do what needs to be done..

4. It would have been interesting to hear whatever conversation precipitated this reversal.

I would be willing to bet (no large sums) it was face to face but we will never know.
