Mitch McConnell Lands Time Cover

Mitch McConnell’s time has come. Literally. The 30-year Senate veteran was reelected in Kentucky and because the Republicans will now control the Senate, he’s in line to be the next majority leader. That was enough to convince Time’s editors to put McConnell on the cover of its latest issue, which hits newsstands Friday.

For McConnell, this is a pretty great way to start the day. A Time cover and conservative rule in the Senate. For the rest of us, well, no worries! We can just move to Canada.
