So Mitch McConnell gets up and, with a straight face (well, there's no way something that doughy can be called straight, but let's be metaphorical, okay?) says "Just because we have a two party system doesn't mean we have to be in perpetual conflict." Seriously. That's what he said.
Here's the helpful translation (I think we're gonna need lots more of them), for those that might be confused:
"Now that we have majorities in both houses, Democrats, please, please, please, don't do what we've been doing for the last six years."
Or, to put in another way:
"If you Democrats do what we've been doing since day one of Obama's presidency, we're gonna call you a bunch of dicks. And Fox "news" will, too."
