Is freezing such a bad thing. Mitch says "no"!

Remember the last time you were up on stage getting asked tough questions? You screwed up, didn't you? You said something. Something stupid. Right?

You'd have been have been better off imitating someone who had stared at Medusa. Freeze, collect your thoughts...crush it. Honestly, youth is wasted on the young.

Note for our readers who didn't attend school: Medusa turned men into stone who gazed into her eyes. Women needn't worry and don't freeze up at her gaze (only men). Even Pelosi!

Mitch McConnell Freezes Again in Press Appearance

Senate GOP leader suffered concussion in a fall earlier this year

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell froze again during a media gaggle Wednesday, prompting new concerns about his health in the wake of a fall earlier this year.

The Kentucky Republican was taking questions from reporters when the latest incident occurred. When he was asked if he planned to run for re-election in 2026, he stood motionless, according to video shown by WLWT. His office didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Earlier this year, McConnell fell at a Washington hotel and suffered a concussion and broke a rib. When he returned to work, he resumed his regular schedule, but concerns intensified after he froze for about 20 seconds while delivering remarks at a press conference. McConnell said he was fine and hasn’t disclosed further health details.

The incident startled fellow lawmakers and brought into the open lingering concerns regarding his injury.

McConnell’s office has said that he intends to serve out both his Senate term, which ends in early 2027, and his current two-year term as Senate Republican leader, a position to which he was re-elected at the start of the current Congress after fending off a challenge from Sen. Rick Scott (R., Fla.).

If McConnell were to step aside as party leader, there are several potential successors: Sens. John Thune (R., S.D.), currently the Senate Republican whip; John Cornyn (R., Texas), the former Senate Republican whip; and John Barrasso (R., Wyo.), the chairman of the Senate Republican conference.
