Senator Mitch McConnell freezes up in public for the second time in two months while answering questions. No one knows how often the Senate Minority leader has frozen in private. Some argue that it’s time for the eighty-year-old Senator to retire and turn his chair over to Generation Lazy. Is it time for McConnell to retire? Yes. Considering his physical and mental condition, that would be the prudent thing to do.
Many in the camp calling for McConnell’s retirement are doing so based on his age. There is speculation that his freezing sessions are because of his generation. The aged-out theory is quite palpable, but there is no concrete evidence to support that theory, and his physician hasn’t backed up the rumor.
In his last freezing session, McConnell’s grip on the podium appeared way stronger than someone having a stroke, which would cause them to lose gripping strength.
According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and the Mayo Clinic, “People 55 or older have a higher risk of stroke than younger people. African American and Hispanic patients have a higher risk of stroke than people of other races. Men have a higher risk of stroke than women. Women are usually older when they have strokes, and they’re more likely to die of strokes than men.” It’s also true that about one in seven strokes occur in adolescents and young adults ages 15 to 49.

According to health experts, the primary triggers for strokes are high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking, obesity, and diabetes, which are leading causes of stroke. “One in 3 U.S. adults has at least one of these conditions or habits.”
During his second public freezing episode, Mitch McConnell clung to the podium as he clung to power. To have power is addictive. Those who are calling for term-age limits are mostly in Generation Lazy. And they would all like to get power to cling to it as all politicians do. They elected McConnell-elected in 2020 at age 79.
If term limits, for example, 15 years, were the answer — consider the people of Virginia sent him to represent them for the first time in 2020. At 79-years-old he would be there until the ripe old age of ninety-four.
Debilitating Illness that prevents someone from doing their job should be a reason to retire. Mitch McConnell and 90-year-old Senator Dianne Feinstein should withdraw from their jobs, not because of their age but because their level of competency has become severely diminished.
Casual observation suggests Joe Biden falls into the same boat of incompetency. Rep Nancy Pelosi at 83, Donald J. Trump, 77, Sen. Bernie Sanders, 81, and Mother Jefferson, aka Maxine Waters, at 85 years of age, are more competent and lucid than most people and politicians in their 30s and 40s.
McConnell’s behavior falls in the stable of someone who they have hypnotized. Trigger words from a reporter (not deliberately done) could set the Senator in un-motion. Was there a particular exceptional sound in the room? As explained by Newton’s First Law of Motion.
Of course, this is not the same as the Havana Syndrome, but it falls into that realm of possibility. Shy a “reasonable” explanation from trained medical personnel, the gate is wide open to speculation about what’s causing Senator McConnell to freeze during his speech.
It doesn’t appear to be stage fright, and doctors haven’t mentioned his medications or any previous injections.
