Interesting hot mic moment between Kentucky’s Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and junior Senator Rand Paul caught yesterday:

    Paul: Do you have a second?

    McConnell: I’m all wired up here. Um.

    Paul: I just did CNN. I just go over and over again, “We’re willing to compromise; we’re willing to negotiate- I think- I don’t think they poll tested ‘we won’t negotiate’. I think it’s awful for them to say that, over and over again.

    McConnell: Yeah, I do, too. And I just came back from the two hour meeting, myself, and that was basically the same view privately as it was earlier-

    Paul: I think if we keep saying ‘we wanted to defund it; we fought for that and now we’re willing to compromise on this’… I think they can’t- I mean we’re gonna- I think- well, I know we don’t want to be here, but we’re gonna win this, I think.
