Does Mitch McConnell Own a Penis Substitute?

If he does, why doesn't he brag about it like every other conservatard?

What is Mitch hiding?

Joe Gerth at the Courier:

Whatever the case, McConnell just didn’t look comfortable waving the flintlock musket above his head.

Instead or recalling images of Charlton Heston at NRA conventions, where the late actor incited the crowd by raising a similar gun, McConnell looked a bit more like Michael Dukakis riding in a tank or President Barack Obama shooting skeet at Camp David, or Jimmy Carter doing much of anything.

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that he didn’t look natural. A search of Courier-Journal archives and the Internet found no other photos of McConnell holding a gun and despite his constant support of gun rights, McConnell has never cultivated the image of a hunter — unless his prey is that of a political sort.

His campaign refused to say if McConnell hunts, shoots targets or even owns a gun and last fall when Grimes challenged McConnell to a shootout at a gun range, he ignored a reporter who asked if he would take her up on her offer and walked away.
Not everyone who owns a gun is proud of it or even willing to admit it - out of security concerns if nothing else.

But people who are members of the NRA, people who use their political positions to promote gun-owning and prevent measures to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill, those people respond to the question "do you own a gun" with lighted-up eyes and 20-minute monologues on which guns they own, when and where they acquired them, when and where they have used them and so on until long after the questioner gets bored and walks away.

What gun "rights" champions never, ever do is refuse to even answer the question.

Until now. Until Mitch waved a musket around at CPAC.
