OK, via the much criticized TPM…. "Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) were caught on a hot mic Wednesday night."… The funniest part of the Hot Mic incident is this. McConnell is sincerely puzzled by the fact that what the Democrats say and do publicly reflects their actual private interactions as well: "Yeah, I do too, and I just came back from that two hour meeting with them, and that was basically the same view privately as it was publicly," McConnell said. In other words these guys are so used to lying to everyone, every chance they get, they can't wrap their head around an actual principled stance or one that is not taken purely opportunistically, and for show.
