Everyone that is surprised raise your hand.
Humm, I don’t see any hands out there.
This guy needs to get primaried ASAP.
Notice how he never excoriates liberals or liberal “ideas” except when there’s absolutely no chance of it making any difference. Traitor. Appeaser. Oxygen thief.
Quite frankly, I’m all about filibuster reform as, odds are VERY good, we retake Senate in 2014.
Tried that in ‘10 with J.D. Hayworth but the Arizonans voted him back in. >:(
Then lets embrace it when WE HAVE THE SENATE.
again, with friends like this,...
I wouldn’t trust john mccain to hold my wallet if it was empty.
Why can’t people like mclame retire? Maybe his wife finds him insufferable?
Republican = enemy.
McCain is on a mission to single-handedly destroying what is left of the Republican Party.
Quite frankly, if we want filibuster reform, we should have the majority FIRST. Give it to the dems now and there is NO chance we take the senate.
Good. I was worried McCain was ill. It is nice to see him back to his usual self /half sarcastically
I disagree. By definition, almost ANYTHING the government does will be bad (possibly except confirming judicial nominees). Therefore the less stuff that makes it through, the fewer hits freedom will take. Think how often their actions increase and metastasize government as opposed to how often they repeal laws and regulations, dissolve departments, etc. Even when Republicans are in charge, gridlock is probably good, especially if you balance it against the downside of giving the [other] statists a free hand when they're in the majority.
