When discussing potential Democratic forerunners for the 2016 presidential nomination, he summed it up as it looking like the Golden Girls:
"Don’t tell me Democrats are the party of the future, when their presidential ticket for 2016 is shaping up to look like a rerun of the Golden Girls,” McConnell said."
Watch out everyone, we've got a comedian on our hands!

What truly puzzles me is that time and again, my gender is attacked by the right-wing for the way we look. CPAC speaker and wing nut extraordinaire Ann Coulter mocked Sandra Fluke for the way she wears her hair. Proof positive in how petty and disgusting the Republican party is. Republican men are always afraid of strong, educated women and believe the only way to knock them down is to insult their appearance. Too bad for them that this tactic fails 100% of the time. It also causes them to get their behinds handed to them in elections.
In the 2012 presidential election, one of the main groups to propel President Obama to a second term was the women's vote (with 55% of support.) When we vote, we do it with purpose. We vote in droves. We don't take the limiting of our biological freedom lightly. We don't find jokes and bogus claims about rape funny. We don't appreciate that every single male GOP senator voted against the Violence Against Women Act. If the GOP was smart (LOL) they'd know that not only do they need our support, they need to start VOTING like they even want it. The Tea Party rode into congress in 2010 on the premise of job creation. The first thing they hacked away at on day 1 was abortion rights. Can't make this stuff up.
And as for the next presidential election, I don't know about you, but I'd be more than thrilled to see a Clinton/Warren ticket in 2016.
