You have to really admire a man that can look you in the eye and give you a straight answer.
From the Herald Leader:
“Question: What do you think of the pardons (Fletcher's move to protect his aides from prosecution) ?
(Sen. Mitch McConnell) Answer: I like the governor, I think he's doing a good job. They had a good session of the legislature, getting tax modernization and a budget.
Q: What about the pardons themselves?
A: That's what I have to say.
Q: Did he ask you for any advice before doing that? Did you offer any?
A: As I said, I like the governor. I think he's doing a good job. They had a successful session of the General Assembly with the tax modernization. Anything on any other subject?”
By golly Mitch, that sure is telling it like it is
