Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said on a conference call organized by Karl Rove’s Crossroads organization for large donors and their advisers on Oct. 30 that the Tea Party movement, in his view, is a “nothing but a bunch of bullies” that he plans to “punch … in the nose.”

On the call, according to a donor who was on it, McConnell personally named Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) as Tea Party conservatives he views as problematic for him. “The bulk of it was an attack on the Tea Party in general, Cruz in particular,” the source, a prominent donor, said in a phone interview with Breitbart News.

But the most memorable line came at the end of the call.

“McConnell said the Tea Party was ‘nothing but a bunch of bullies,’” the source said. “And he said ‘you know how you deal with schoolyard bullies? You punch them in the nose and that’s what we’re going to do.’”

Yeah, and career politicians like McConnell and McCain need a swift kick in the ass out of congress. They cannot fathom ceding or sharing power. Out with the lot of them I say!
Our PA Congressman Bill Shuster, who was placed in power by his carpetbagger daddy, Bud, who also claims to be conservative is finally finding opposition in Halverson. He is now having to spend his retirement war chest on his campaign. Out with Shuster as well.
