To the surprise of virtually no one, Senate Republicans unanimously returned Midnight Mitch McConnell (thanks for the awesome nicknames, Democrats!) to his seat as Senate Majority leader. Reporters outside the room where the vote took place reported hearing applause and cheering after the vote was taken. McConnell has arguably been the biggest thorn in the collective side of the Democrats outside of Donald Trump for the past four years and Cocaine Mitch, now 78 years young, is poised to continue his track record.

Sen. Mitch McConnell (R. Ky) was unanimously re-elected Senate Majority Leader on Tuesday, continuing his reign as one of the most powerful figures in Washington.
The Republican conference bestowed the honor on McConnell, according to a report by NBC News reporter Garrett Haake, who said applause could be heard from outside the room…
Republicans under McConnell’s stewardship are poised to keep control of the Senate, but face two fiercely-contested runoff elections in Georgia in January.
McConnell continues to defy expectations. I eventually lost track of how many millions of dollars the Democrats flushed into the campaigns of Amy McGrath and some Libertarian nobody had ever heard of in Kentucky, but in the end, the race wasn’t really even close. The Alpha Predator of Politics has already established his legacy by helping President Trump fill judicial vacancies at the federal level with strict, originalist judges from bottom to top at a rate that would make The Flash envious.
