Dear Whining Crybaby Mitch McConnell:

I knew that getting Health Care reform underway was going to be a monumental task. I knew there would be partisan bickering but had hoped that both sides of the isle would look at the rest of the world and see where we rank among industrialized nations. Being first in cost and 37th in quality/accessibility isn't leading the world.

I had hoped that the people we elected would spend their time working out the details of the legislation rather than practicing politics. Most Democrats and some Republicans tried this. Others fulfilled their roles in this historic process by parroting Fat Limbaugh and Glenn Beck. I recently saw Repugnantcan Senator "Bitch" McConnell (R-KY) pontificating about how the Democrats didn't do what "most" Americans want and that they will be sorry come election time.

For nearly 100 years, this country has tried to get some sort of health care reform in place. And, in fact, Senator Mitch, more, or "most," Americans elected this President because his platform included the pursuit of solutions to our health care crisis. In spite of the fact that most of the progress he plans to make will be difficult and controversial, President Obama perseveres. You would do well to quit your whining, posturing and bitching and look for ways to be part of the solution, rather than the problem.

Being a native of Kentucky who spent half of his live in metro Louisville, I am not unfamiliar with your self-serving ascent in politics. I think you've always been a divisive "us against them" public figure. I am ashamed of you.
