Mitch McConnell was not happy

Even though the Senate passed a Keystone XL pipeline authorization bill, which the Prez is sure to veto, Mitch McConnell was unhappy the minority party -- the Democrats -- were slowing things down.  Which is exactly what he did for the last four years as the leader of the Senate minority party.

Mitch McConnell Begs Senate Democrats To Stop Filibustering Keystone XL 

"The obstructor has become the obstructed. The fast start that McConnell promised during the 2014 campaign has evaporated as he has been pinned down by Senate Democrats on one end and President Obama on the other. The Keystone XL debate is about more than a certain to be vetoed pipeline authorization bill. The deeper meaning of the debate is that Democrats are showing that they won’t be pushed around while for Republicans Keystone XL was supposed to be a symbol of their newly won power."

Oh well.  The Republicans are finding out the running the Congressional zoo isn't much fun when the monkeys won't behave.
