Shortly after President Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday, a friend told me he was worried. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., was smiling way too much during the ceremony, he said, and it made him nervous. The sight of a smiling McConnell, after all, is like seeing a smiling Ted Bundy: It should immediately make you wonder where the bodies are buried.
Sure enough, McConnell wasted no time launching his evil scheme to maintain control of the Senate after losing his Republican majority.
