Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is far more than an American politician serving as Kentucky’s senior United States senator, he’s also a man of exquisite artistic talent.

Long before he embraced the world of politics, McConnell, the longest-serving U.S. senator for Kentucky in history and longest-serving leader of U.S. Senate Republicans in history, was a man with dreams. What kind of dreams? Delusional dreams.

Yes, there was a time when Mitch McConnell, distinguished politician, was “Mitchy on the Mic: Guardian of the Funk.”

Every Friday night, “Mitchy on the Mic” would don a pair of leather pants, apply a tasteful amount of makeup, grab his K-Tel karaoke machine and perform a medley of R&B favorites at discount laundromats all across the southern United States.

Now, through an exclusive distribution agreement with Time-Life, we present the full audio catalog of “Mitchy on the Mic: Guardian of the Funk” favorites, remastered in stereophonic sound for your listening enjoyment.
