News Roundup for 7/11/11

A turtle
Sen. Mitch McConnell

-Headline of the Day-
"McConnell: Casey Anthony verdict a warning."

Oh for fuck's sake...

Proving that there is absolutely nothing that Republicans can't politicize and capitalize on, Senate minority leader "Chinless Mitch" McConnell declared the US system of justice completely worthless yesterday. "We just found with the Caylee Anthony case how difficult is to get a conviction in a U.S. court," McConnell said -- and that's why we should never, ever, ever try a terrorist suspect in a court of law.

Of course, following this line of reasoning, everyone accused of a crime should go before a military tribunal. Got an outstanding parking ticket? Off to Gitmo! It's the only place that still serves American justice!

We'll keep that in mind the next time some Republican gets caught with his hand in the cookie jar, OK Mitch? (UPI)

-The internet hive-mind strikes again-
When I was writing the piece above, I went looking for an image to represent Mitch McConnell -- so "cartoon turtle glasses" it was. The result:

-Bonus HotD-
"'Nobody is talking about not raising the debt ceiling'."

Yesterday seems to have been "National Mitch McConnell Spews Crazy-Assed Bullshit Day."

And I didn't even get my mother a card. (Political Animal)
