Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Here's the cynical political reality behind Mitch McConnell bashing big business - Ch.Cillizza
So, given all of that, here's what McConnell is up to. He knows that corporate America is entirely bottom-line focused -- as in, what way can it keep as much of its money as possible. And that corporations believe -- and have ample reason from the past to believe -- that the Republican Party is the party most likely to make that happen.

Which means that attacking corporations -- and throwing a bone to the Trump populists with a nod to supposed "cancel culture" -- amounts to a freebie for McConnell. He knows corporations aren't going to walk away from the GOP because he's issuing vague threats to them over the reaction to the Georgia election law.
