Have You Seen Mitch McConnell's Facebook Page? 17APR13

HERE is the face of those who defeated sane, reasonable gun control legislation in the US Senate yesterday. A post like this is like laughing in the faces of every family who has lost someone by gun violence. As a nation, we should be ashamed, not of America, but of the politicians who are controlled by the gun industry and organizations like the nra, who turn their backs on the American people and mock the deaths of those killed. From Mother Jones.......

The classy folks over at Team McConnell posted this status update to the Senator's Facebook page after the defeat of the watered-down Manchin-Toomey background checks compromise. For a dose of reality, read some of the devastating quotes from the disappointed families of victims of the Sandy Hook and Virginia Tech shootings in Gavin Aronsen's story on the vote.

 The status message that accompanies the post implies that they didn't make the meme-style image themselves:
As of 10:00 p.m. EDT the post had not been taken down even as Facebook users posted thousands of highly critical comments.
