'Complete Fabrication':

Senate Majority Whip Mitch McConnell (R.-Ky.) was none too pleased by a Boston Globe report and conservative grumbling this week that suggested he was the obstacle to GOP action on the “nuclear” option. The Family Research Council plans to run ads in Kentucky–just to be sure McConnell is on board. According to the Globe, McConnell has warned his GOP colleagues about the dangers of going “nuclear.” But McConnell said to Human Events about the story: “It was totally inaccurate. I’ve been a supporter of the constitutional option consistently from the beginning and, in fact, just spoke on the floor last Thursday [March 10] on that very subject. I don’t know where in the world that came from. It’s a complete fabrication.”
