Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has suffered intense backlash and seemingly little support in the wake of the 2022 midterms, as many crucial GOP Senate candidates lost close races.
Critics of the Kentucky Republican say he could have easily poured extra cash into those campaigns to take them across the finish line. Because he didn't, critics say, they lost Republicans the chance to capture majority control of both chambers of Congress.
Breitbart's Joel Pollak penned a piece this week explaining why he believes McConnell should have resigned instead of seeking out another term in high Republican leadership.
The blistering piece laid out why Pollak believes McConnell is like a Thanksgiving turkey: done.
"I have long argued that leaders of political parties should resign their positions after political defeat, so I will say again: Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) should have resigned after his party failed to win the Senate last week," Pollak's first paragraph read.
Pollak went through a number of former congressional leader heavyweights, like Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and John Boehner, explaining that they didn't resign when they should have.
"Now, after losing an opportunity to take back the Senate majority last week, McConnell fought to keep his leadership position, which he has held for 15 years. Evidently, he is obsessed with breaking the 16-year record," Pollak wrote.
He added, "But McConnell offered no reason to maintain his grip on his caucus, no agenda other than working together with Democrats on "things between the 40-yard lines."
That was a reference to a speech McConnell gave earlier this week in which he explained how Senate Republicans might work with the president and Democrats in the new term.

Pollak wasn't done there. He ripped McConnell for being "strangely passive" during the entirety of the 2022 campaign season. "He offered no vision to inspire Republican voters, nor did he warn voters about Biden's judicial appointees."
"It's long past time for him to go," Pollak concluded. I couldn't agree more.
