Quote of the Day: McConnell on START

| Mon Dec. 20, 2010 12:42 PM EST

From Republican minority leader Mitch McConnell, explaining why he opposes the New START treaty:

All of a sudden, we're once again trying to rush things right here before Christmas Eve. I think that was not the best way to get the support of people like me.

Translation: he's pissed that Democrats successfully repealed DADT and is bound and determined to get back at them. The childishness that passes for politics these days is endlessly astonishing.
