Mitch McConnell and his perma-smirk have been terrorizing Washington for years and getting away with it. His penchant for putting party over country came to a particularly infuriating head last week when Neil Gorsuch was confirmed to the Supreme Court, a seat for which Merrick Garland never even got a hearing.
