Mitch McConnell's Office Gets Occupied

by Pa  Rock
Citizen Journalist

Today while Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R, KY) was busy on the floor of the Senate killing President Obama's bill to fund $60 billion of infrastructure (road and bridge) repairs and thousands of jobs for hard-working Americans, thirty jobless protesters from Washington D.C. descended on his office demanding an audience with the esteemed windbag.  Those angry citizens of the nation's capital set about occupying every chair in his office and even sat on the floor.  Some political toady was trotted out to deal with them, but at last report they were refusing to talk to anyone but the Mitchster - and refusing to leave!

Point one:  Citizens of the nation's capital are not represented in the Senate, so bringing their issues directly to the leader of the majority party was entirely appropriate.  They are as entitled to a voice in the Senate chamber as any other American.

Point two:  If I had known about this protest in a timely manner, I would have personally called up the closest Godfather's Pizza to the Capitol and ordered a dozen messy pizzas.  (Extra sauce, extra cheese, please.  Napkins?  We don't need no stinking napkins!)   I'm doubting that McConnell's office staff was up to the task of properly entertaining that many guests.

Occupy Congress - one office at a time!

Congress serves the essential "state" functions for D.C. and therefore the occupation was entirely reasonable.

Thanks to Pa Rock and the Huff Post we get news like this. If you were waiting to hear this ireport on the mainstream media, you'd still be waiting.
