Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, September 10, 2019

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell last month blocked a measure that would have used Treasury Department funds marked for Appalachian development to help pay for coal miners' health care and pensions in his home state of Kentucky. But just a few months earlier, McConnell successfully steered near-identical Treasury funds for Appalachia to bankroll a Kentucky aluminum plant connected to an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Sorry, I DID misspell it, but not in the way that you think.

Actually, 'nyet' is the English pronunciation of the Russian word 'het', which means 'no'.

At least I got the 'da' correct.

Never apologize for misspelling. I don't use spell check, either. Sometimes we make a spelling error, or more often typographical error by not using it. People who depend on machines for basic skills are the ones who need to apologize.

When the headline said "Yes to Russian-Backed Plant" I just assumed it was referring to Trump.

What? 10 posts deep and no already disproven Hillary reference?

Conservatives are getting lazy.

This is a no win article for them. Senate Majority leader not seeing fit to take care of his electorate yet passing around the corporate welfare is okay...

I agree that it isn't necessary to apologize for spelling or grammar errors, portmanteau and unexpected entendre thrive in-between victimized language, but disagree that spellcheck doesn't help with spelling. I will try variations until I have to right-click.

on topic: What kind of Russian prostitute does Moscow Mitch think he is?!

"Coal miners understand something"when people tell us we're going to pass legislation' ... we don't believe it," said Cecil Roberts, president of the UWMA, at a recent speech in Washington. "Anyone who understands how Congress works knows that that's a fight."
Isn't the Senate where bills are held-up by the McConnell itself?
