Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is an easy target. He’s been in Washington for decades and he’s in a leadership position. So, it’s easy to blame legislation or the lack there of on McConnell. He’s also not the most media friendly lawmaker in the country.
Both Republicans and Democrats have both taken shots at the Kentucky senator. One of the most recent and memorable came from the West Virginia GOP primary. Failed senate candidate Don Blakenship bestowed upon McConnell the moniker “Cocaine Mitch.”
Well, McConell’s campaign decided to embrace his drug-induced nickname as they began selling “Cocaine Mitch” t-shirts.
A year ago, a legend was born. Own your piece of history. #CocaineMitch
