Kentuckians have voted against their best interest and re-elected human-turtle hybrid Mitch McConnell.
The Associated Press reported at 7:02 p.m. that Kentucky’s Hero-in-a-Half-Shell had, despite rapidly falling popularity, a refusal to state whether or not her would eliminate subsidies on the state’s health care exchange, and a promise that he would lead Republicans into a new age of obstructionism in which they would use every “must-pass” spending bill to bully the President into acquiescing to their demands, somehow, some way, managed to gain enough support to keep his seat.
When McConnell cast his own ballot, he received a review, of sorts, from a voter a couple of booths behind him — a nice, big thumbs-down. ABC News released video of the “thumbing heard ’round the world,” or whatever ridiculous nickname this hilarious moment in political history will inevitably receive.
