George Will and David Hawpe Square Off On McConnell's Significance

George Will and David Hawpe have competing columns published today on the Courier Journal's editorial pages. (Will's piece is linked here; Hawpe's is here.) The topic is whether Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell is the greatest Republican congressional leader that Kentucky has ever produced. Judge for yourself which of these writers has the best argument. My money is on Will, who calls McConnell "Kentucky's most important politician since Henry Clay, 'the Great Compromiser.'"
Please note: The postings of "G. Morris", written by John K. Bush and which end in 2016, stated his views as of the dates of posting and should not be understood as current assertions of his views. The postings, which have not been altered since they came to an end, remain on this blog to preserve the historical record. In 2017, Mr. Bush took a position that precludes further public political comments or endorsements. He will no longer be contributing to this blog.

George Will makes David Hawpe look like a 3rd grader.

These elitist illuminati need to give it up, and get ready to handle business and quit acting like children.
