#tbt: That Time Mitch McConnell Brought a Gun to CPAC

And the air guitar rendition that never was.

Screen Shot 2015-02-26 at 10.16.30 AMRemember that time Mitch McConnell brought a gun to CPAC 2014? We do.

Presenting a musket to his colleague, Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK), at last year’s Conservative Political Action Conference, then Senate Minority Leader took the stage to the tune of Bon Jovi‘s “Livin’ On A Prayer.”

The only conceivable thing that could’ve made this walkout more — and I hate this word… but — epic is an air guitar rendition on his musket.

Watch the clip below and enjoy!
