Mitch McConnell: The Ukrainian Candidate
Senate Minority Leader says providing aid to Ukraine is America's Number 1 priority
Today, while watching a clip of Senator Mitch McConnell, I was reminded of Richard Condon’s famous thriller, The Manchurian Candidate. For those unfamiliar with the novel, Wikipedia provides a pretty good basic description.
The Manchurian Candidate is a 1962 American neo-noir psychological political thriller film directed and produced by John Frankenheimer. The screenplay is by George Axelrod, based on the 1959 Richard Condon novel The Manchurian Candidate. The film's leading actors are Frank Sinatra, Laurence Harvey, and Angela Lansbury, with co-stars Janet Leigh, Henry Silva, and James Gregory.
The plot centers on Korean War veteran Raymond Shaw, part of a prominent political family. Shaw is brainwashed by communists after his Army platoon is captured. He returns to civilian life in the United States, where he becomes an unwitting assassin in an international communist conspiracy, aided by homegrown conservative partisan dupes.
The Senator Minority Leader just stated that "the number one priority" for Americans, according to fellow republicans is “providing assistance for the Ukrainians to defeat the Russians.”
When I heard him say this, I thought of his weird brain freezes. In a jocular way, I wondered if the Military-industrial complex has implanted in the old boy’s brain a computer program for endless advocacy of funding Ukrainian military operations. Occasionally the program conflicts with the running program of his vestigial brain, causing a freeze or “hang” to use the computing term.
Here is the Senator experiencing a HANG as the MIC-Ukraine program caused his vestigial brain to experience resource exhaustion.
And here is the Senator’s recent performance as the Ukrainian Candidate in which the MIC-Ukraine program is running seamlessly with his vestigial brain, which has been virtually shut off to recruit all remaining computing power for the program.
