Now that Benton has found a boss who will play the political game and brazenly call a pile of crap, kick the can down the road agreement a win for the American people, he seems truly happy.
I personally would be proud of McConnell if he had worked to address spending in any way. However, cutting spending is hard work, and there are only a few politicians with the intestinal fortitude to do it.
It is not McConnell's fault. He has always been big government statist masquerading as a conservative. A zebra can not change its stripes. I'm just glad Benton has found a statist he can call his own.
