That world where Nancy Pelosi is with Mitch McConnell, and John McCain is with Paul Wellstone
The world loves to focus on the gap between Republicans and Democrats.
I love to notice the places where the politics just doesn’t align.
Here are four politicians — Nancy Pelosi, Paul Wellstone, Mitch McConnell and John McCain — on the question whether “the system is corrupt.”
First, Nancy Pelosi on The Daily Show:
Then Mitch McConnell on the floor of the Senate, in the debate leading up to the passage of McCain/Feingold:
John McCain answers Mitch McConnell:
Mitch McConnell then responds as if he just didn’t understand McCain’s point:
McCain, losing his patience a bit, recovers perfectly:
Fred Thompson focuses the point, leading McConnell to an interesting slip (thanking donors for allowing them to engage in “vote buying”):
And then the great (and late) Paul Wellstone finally putting the argument to bed:
So are you with John and Paul? Or Nancy and Mitch?
