Pudfaced senator takes it up to the root

Mitch McConnell wants you to know that under US law, foreign companies can not make campaign contributions here... except to him, evidently.

In the wake of the Supreme Court's ruling, Sen. McConnell (R-KY - heh) has been quick to denounce a bid by Democrats to stop foreign corporations from pouring money into U.S. elections, claiming current law already bars such spending. As we've reported before, it's not nearly as simple as that -- but McConnell should know: The GOP Senate leader has raked in campaign cash from a subsidiary of a major foreign defense contractor that's currently being investigated by the Justice Department for bribery…

McConnell's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Of course it didn’t!
