Just saw a story on CBS about Mitch McConnell [View all]

I did not know he had polio. I did not know he went to Warm Springs for therapy as a child. He left there able to walk.

I did know his wife was an immigrant.

The reporter asked some pretty good questions. She missed some. "How do you feel about the fact that you walk today because a Democratic president privately created a clinic where you got therapy?" " How do you feel about current immigration issues?". "How did you turn out to be so wrong about issues and know that you are totally obstructing our government?" "How do you sleep at night?"

There are probably more.
