You know, I think it's almost laughable the way the media inflate John McCain, because he's a man who, even if you fall for his charm, which I don't. I think he's actually a very thin-skinned narcissist myself, in my limited experience of him. But even if you fall for his charm, you can't really argue that this man has any kind of serious political philosophy, the way, for example, Ronald Reagan or even Bill Clinton did.

Absolutely dead-on assessment of Senator McCain.

More proof of the folly of Amendment 17 to the US Constitution.

And this is why people loathe the Senate, because some empty, vapid, puffed-up poser, just sobbing and bleating about his grandchildren on there, I mean there are one hundred U.S. Senators out of a potential pool of 300 million. 400 million if you include all the fine, upstanding members of the undocumented American community in your part of the country.

ROTFLMAO, This guy is the greatest.

But I think that this deal, insofar as it gets some good judges confirmed, and in fact, it puts a lot of pressure on these so-called seven moderate Republicans, and seven moderate Democrats, is in fact, strictly, in sort of devious political terms, not a bad deal for the president.

He sees it the way I see it. A year from now, looking in hindsight, we may all agree that it worked out perfectly. We'll just have to wait and see, while continuing the pressure.

Now you talk about his home state. His home state is, in fact, the newsroom of the New York Times.

That is my "I wish I had said that" line of the day.

I mean there are one hundred U.S. Senators out of a potential pool of 300 million. 400 million if you include all the fine, upstanding members of the undocumented American community in your part of the country. And it should be possible to get a hundred people who can stand there and discuss the issues in an articulate way, instead of blathering cliches about the well being dry. And it isn't. It's overflowing with his sob sister routine.

Snort! I just LOVE this guy.

Senators are like Little Emperors. They have this power that comes with being self-important windbags and members of the world's most exclusive club. And when you don't have to worry about voters for six years at a stretch, you begin to think the only voice in the country that truly counts... is you. And let's not so go there with the infamous saucer analogy.

(Denny Crane: "Sometimes you can only look for answers from God and failing that... and Fox News".)

The Democrats are all about attacking personalities, and about procedure. And that's why they lose at elections. Because when it comes to elections, elections are about ideas and policy and principle. And on that basis, the Republican party is still strong, no matter how feeble its Senate leadership is.

Even off the cuff this guy is brilliant.

And all this business, this sub-Star Wars cliches about how the Senate has saved the Republic, that we're seeing in the newspapers today. You know, I think the Senators are just generally over-inflated, isolated people, wandering around the country with bigger courts of flunkees than your average Gulf emir has.

Great. I knew McCain's "Death Star" speech would come back one day. Look out for it.
