I’m sure McConnell is going to have a great time with Obama at the next White House cocktail party, seeing as how he and Obama are now an ‘odd couple’:

WASHINGTON TIMES – “A lot of folks like to joke about the odd couple that was Ted Kennedy and Orrin Hatch,” Mr. McConnell said Sunday at an event at the Edward M. Kennedy Institute in Boston, referring to the late liberal lion and Mr. Hatch, a Republican senator from Utah. “But I think Mitch McConnell and Barack Obama may have them outdone.”

“I had to warn reporters not to faint last week before offering the president some praise on trade,” Mr. McConnell said, according to USA Today. “I’m even getting handwritten notes from the president these days. He sent one the other day to thank me for supporting the nomination of Loretta Lynch.

Sorry, I gotta go get a barf bag. This bipartisan love affair is making me very nauseous.
