Four men confronted Mitch McConnell and angrily demanded “Why don’t you get out of here?  Why don’t you leave the entire country?” One of the men reportedly slammed his fists on the table, took McConnell’s doggy-bag of leftovers and hurled it out the door.

TMZ obtained the footage of the incident from one of the other customers.

The observer noted that the men’s fury seemed to have been inspired by McConnell’s recent statements about the need to cut Medicare and Social Security after sending the national deficit through the roof with the tax cuts and corporate handouts that his Congress passed last year.

Cutting the entitlements that ordinary Americans have been paying into their entire lives so that a tiny wealthy minority gets a tax cut is enormously unpopular, and people are clearly not afraid to show it.

While the right-wing throws a pearl-clutching fit everytime an incident like this happens (while ignoring their president’s open celebration of violence against the press) and centrist pundits wring their hands over the loss of “civility,” we need these kinds of confrontations more than ever.

It’s clear that Mitch McConnell hasn’t feared any consequences from his actions for years now; it’s long past time we make him squirm and realize that the public’s anger is a very powerful thing, and he should respect it.
