Mitch McConnell, the New Tom Cruise?

Posted July 15, 2014 at 1:50pm



Is Minority Leader Mitch McConnell the senator who most reminds you of Tom Cruise?  

Sure, there might be other politicians more likely to wear aviators (looking at you, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.), but if McConnell is the one you think of, then Heard on the Hill thinks the Kentucky Republican’s re-election campaign has the perfect gift for you.  

Among the items available in the McConnell for Senate campaign store in conjunction with a $20 contribution to the Team Mitch effort is a unisex “pro-gun” T-shirt bearing an uncanny resemblance to the logo from the 1986 Cruise drama “Top Gun.”  

“Top Gun” studio Paramount Pictures declined to comment for this report.
