I know he’s a fixture on the Sunday shows, but I get the feeling that Mitch McConnell would like to keep his head in his shell until this debt ceiling thing is resolved. I think he thinks Republicans are going to end up stepping in a big pile of alligator shit and he doesn’t want to get too much on his flippers.
Let Boehner take the lead explaining things to the crazy-ass teabaggers. Mitch just wants to get back to shaking down fat cat donors. That’s politics to him.
