The American people elected a Republican Senate in the last election. Where the two parties can’t agree we’ve served as a check-and-balance to the president, but where the two parties can agree we’ve repeatedly sought common ground to get things done.

This man is a one-man advertising campaign for term limits.
Let me get this straight: the guy who’s on record (not to mention video) making it his party’s sole aim to limit Barack Obama to a one-term presidency, and then failing miserably even at that, has “repeatedly sought common ground to get things done.”

But take heart: McConnell’s attempts at obstructing Obama’s second term indicate that he isn’t any better at that than he is at interpreting his own inner logic.
So, meet Merrick Garland, the soon-to-be 113th justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.

Don’t fall for it. Be your proudly mulish selves, stubborn by birthright, and demand proof of life (and/or neural activity). Make him make a point, not an empty promise.
And when that point proves dull, turn around and kick him in the ass like the magnificent long-ears only you can be.
Do us a solid, Missouri…
Send the jackass packing.

Viewers had a hard time deciding if the Democrat was wearing brown or blue.
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to our national political discourse…
I know the debates are getting a bit redundant at this point. There were some exchanges that were taken almost verbatim from the Flint, Michigan debate last Sunday.
Has the Trump Effect become so pervasive that we actually can’t focus on actual things anymore? Is the man’s Twitter obsession contagious, rendering all other tweets vapid and clownish?
I mean, I’m no fan of Twitter, but surely we can do more with it than this?
