Interesting slip- does he actuall agree with the Democrat argument that they are 'preseving' a tradition of fililbustering judicial nominees, or does he believe the Republicans are 'preserving' a tradition of not filibustering judicial nominees?
"We're in recess next week. You know, we've been working way too hard. So we're in recess next week"
Frist should have forced the 'Rats to filibuster right through the weekend, but then he would lose support of so many in this lazy Gentleman's Club. The idea that the Senate has been "working way too hard" is so laughable - when they actually get some of the people's business done they can boast about their hard work, but right now they're just a bunch of clowns.
Interesting how McCain talks not at all as a Republican in this interview, but mainly as a disinterested observer, even sympathizing with the 'Rats.
Ye gads and liddle fishees-- get out the violin. McCain is scum.
I always excerpt CNN with the remote.
How about "obnoxious popinjay"? Does that work for you McQueeg?
McCain's preening in every imaginable venue has become unendurable.
John McCain will never be president. Now you talk about his home state. His home state is, in fact, the newsroom of the New York Times. He has tremendous appeal among key demographics of columnists, journalists, editors, news anchors, network reporters, the secretary in the research department standing by the photocopier. But among Republican primary voters, he has very minimal appeal, and insofar as this deal does anything, it only weakens his appeal to Republicans.

Hugh Hewitt had the best formulation for describing McCain:
I have already shipped off my puke bag to his office. Felt good to regurgitate the anger and hate I have for this clown.
AMERICAN MORNING: Discussion with Senator McCain ("I prefer outstanding senator to maverick")
I prefer no good, treasonous, assmaggot,commie loving, manchurian candidate, egotistical, backstabbing, son of a land lubbering, snubnosed, shark-eared, sidewinding, mess of second hand pizened tripe that needs an enema to clear his voicebox before he lies like the worthless thieving whore bastard that he is.
But that's just one man's opinion.
Former heros can still be jerks, today.
I prefer retired Senator.
