UPDATE: McCAIN — NEW GOP GUARD: ‘WACKO BIRDS’
John McCain may have finally lost it. In an interview with Huffington Post he referred to Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) as “wacko birds.”
“They were elected, nobody believes that there was a corrupt election, anything else,” McCain said. “But I also think that when, you know, it’s always the wacko birds on right and left that get the media megaphone.” Asked to clarify, McCain said he was referencing ”Rand Paul, Cruz, Amash, whoever.” [More]
At a minimum $85 a pop (not including the booze), Barack Obama treated 16 Republican senators to a posh dinner bash at Washington’s Jefferson Hotel last night, during Republican Rand Paul’s historic 13-hour filibuster of Obama CIA nominee John Brennan.
What was for dinner? RINO.
Hoping to begin rebuilding bridges frayed by years of neglect and abuse, President Obama last night bought dinner for a dozen Republican Senators as the two sides broke bread to try to begin reaching an accommodation on the budget and other issues.
Senators are not used to skimping on meals, and the dinner must have set the president – who paid out of his own pocket – back a pretty penny. Or more like some Susan Anthony dollars. [Read more]
The outing at Washington’s posh Jefferson Hotel could easily have cost a grand or two, especially if it was held at the Jefferson’s exquisite Plume restaurant, which has a prix fixe menu costing $85, before you start including booze, which senators like to include.
Just when you think Republicans cannot get any dumber, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Kelly Ayotte, Pat Toomey and nine other egoistic boneheads make a brazen public spectacle of just how deeply their party is divided.
At least Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell had the good sense to heed Brit Hume’s advice and “get his butt on the floor.”
Was it Einstein who said, “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; I’m not sure about the universe”? These morons actually think they can negotiate with Obama, the way Obama thinks he can negotiate with Iran!
When Barack Obama wanted to organize a dinner with Republican Senators he knew just who to call – Senator Lindsey “Tell the Bigots to Shut Up” Graham. Last night Lindsey and twelve other Republicans went to dinner with Barack Obama in an attempt to make the far left president look bipartisan.
Lindsey spoke with reporters after the dinner. “So when the president asked to get together a group, I was willing and honored to do that.”
To make matters worse, today, nursing their hangovers no doubt, McCain and Graham dared show their faces on the Senate floor pimping for Obama.
Sen. Rand Paul’s filibuster didn’t thrill all of his colleagues.
Almost exactly 24 hours after Mr. Paul began his information-seeking filibuster against John O. Brennan, Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham took to the Senate floor to denounce his demands and say he was doing a “disservice” to the debate on drones.
“The country needs more senators who care about liberty, but if Mr. Paul wants to be taken seriously he needs to do more than pull political stunts that fire up impressionable libertarian kids in their college dorms. He needs to know what he’s talking about,” said Mr. McCain, Republicans’ presidential nominee in 2008 — who topped Mr. Paul’s father, former Rep. Ron Paul, in that year’s primary. [Read more]
Well, since you put it that way, John. We wouldn’t want Senator Paul out there actually inspiring young people to take an interest in government.
Have ANY of these numbskulls ever noticed that Democrats absolutely NEVER criticize one another publically?
Anyone ever notice that?
