McCain calls Paul, Cruz, Amash ‘wacko birds’
The Washington Post ^ | 8 Mar 2013 | Rachel Weiner

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is continuing to criticize his fellow Republicans for their filibuster of incoming CIA Director John O. Brennan over drone policy. In an interview with the Huffington Post, McCain referred to Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) and Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) as “wackos.”

FLUSH THE JOHN!

... Johnny and Teddy were Senators
On opposite sides of the aisle
They got together and drafted a bill
Guaranteed to make illegals smile
Amnesty was their game – and they had no shame

Johnny and Senator Feingold
Gave campaign finance a try
But then the highest court in the land
Said the 1st amendment must apply
Gotta play by the rules – now Johnny looks like a fool

Johnny and Mr. Obama
They both agree Gitmo should close
But bringing terrorists into the USA
Is a plan that we oppose
No, they don’t belong – and Johnny’s got it all wrong

Now Johnny and Senator Lieberman
Got together on cap and trade
Anemic hands across the aisle
Gonna send the country to its grave
It’s time to let him know – old Johnny’s gotta go

Johnny believes Global Warming
Limousine Liberals and all
Congressional junkets to Copenhagen
Everybody’s havin’ a ball
Just ask Al Gore - Johnny knows the score

S & L Man Charlie Keating
He came to Johnny one day
Said “the government boys are sniffing around
How much to make ‘em go away?”
Did Johnny take a bribe to join the Keating 5?

Now fast-forward 20 years later
Banks are in trouble again
Johnny says, “Let’s bail ‘em out
It’s just a trillion – or maybe ten.
Let’s put some wind in their sails – ‘cause they’re too big to fail.”

We know there’s oil in Alaska
Drilling won’t cause any harm
But Johnny agrees with the tree-hugging geeks
Gas is gonna cost a leg and an arm
Johnny why can’t you see what’s good for you and me?

Now everyone knows about ACORN
They get lots of taxpayers’ dough
Prostitution rings and voter fraud
And home loans to any old schmoe
No matter ACORN’s crimes – Johnny thinks they’re just fine

We’re tired of hearin’ your flip-flops
We’re tired of hearin’ your lies
You may think we’re all dummies but you can’t
Pull the wool over our eyes
You’re career’s hit a snag - so start packin’ your bags

‘Cause Johnny, you’ve worn out your welcome
It’s time to bid DC goodbye
Go write a book or learn to cook
And eat a little humble pie
Just ask Sheriff Joe – he says you gotta go

Yeah, go Johnny, go – it’s time to hit the road.
Good-bye
(to the tune of Frankie & Johnny) http://towncriernews.blogspot.com/search?q=Terry+anderson+song+McCain

It seems that Senator McCain has forgotten the oath he swore 59 years ago at Annapolis.”...defend the Constitution of the United states against all enemies...”
Not the government. Not the homeland. Not even the People. THE CONSTITUTION!!!

WHY would he even start off by saying he’s not claiming their elections were “corrupt”????

They were elected by their states and btw TEXAS has a hell of a lot more people, economy, landmass, etc than Arizona which essentially is a desert and a National Park.

Does he understand the concept that they represent their states and it is none of his damn business??

Plus they did absolutely not a thing wrong. He is losing it.

McCain is not senile! McCain has Alzheimers with a manic depressive mood. let’s face it MCcain’s dinner with Odumb@$$, McCain was promised certain things by Odumb@$$, if McCain would follow along with Odumb@$$’s agenda.

I am from MI and I do not like a representative from my state being called a wacko bird. Just maybe freepers from AZ need to do a recall election of the alzheimer’s affected McCain.

Not sure that it is all senility--he certainly appears to suffer from hardened arteries though. But his delusional behavior, the past few days, is not that different from that of the boy dictator of North Korea. There are multiple causes for delusional behavior.

But that someone needs to take him aside and explain what is real & what is not; who is the enemy & who the friend, etc., is pretty obvious.

I saw the NBC nightly news last night (in a doctor’s waiting room. They covered this whole thing and it was very favorable to Rand Paul.

When they got to the dinner with Obama, teh entire report was “From those in attendance all agreed it was a stellar performance by the President”.

That was the sum total of idiot McCain’s contribution.

Proof positive (IMO) Juan never intended to win and be President.

His refusal to use, and his dictate for others to not use ... Hussein in the muslim's name.

THEN the muzzie goes on national TV and swears in as; I, barack HUSSEIN obama ... etc.

I have a feeling that when he and lindy loop had breakfast with hussein, he greeted him with, "Hi'ya, chief"

I think whack-O homosexuals get the megaphone and those on the far left fringe.

“Look, these people were elected. No one is going to say they weren’t. I mean, how can you argue against an obvious and demonstrable fact?”. Vendome said.

“No one’s denying it and yet, there it is.”

And just to beat a dead horse, did Paul, Rubio or Cruz bother or even think to criticize McCain’s stupid dinner with Obama? They could have but they showed the proper respect for their fellow senator.

McCain is just outrageously wrong here. Embarrassingly so..

Note he is talking not about substance, but about who gets the most attention. Pathetic.

McCain has been a symptom of the illness that rages throughout Washington infecting the political elites. I’m certain they look upon Congress as a one party club and woe be unto them who rock the boat!

I think McCain is working for the democrats. He knows he can do more damage working from the inside, and he’s not the only one doing that. At this point I think he and his rino “friends” should just leave; go over the dark side where they belong. They won’t be missed.

Mass exposure of these hacks are the only thing positive about Obama being in power.

“Wacko Bird” is a good description of McLame himself. He must be projecting. He said these three Tea Partiers didn’t reflect the mainstream GOP. Well, he’s correct in that regard, but then the mainstream GOP no longer represents the American conservatives. People sometimes forget that McPain is a closet DemoRat. I wonder why McPain didn’t just jump to the DemoRat party in 2001, when he came close to doing so and had the chance or become John Kerry’s vice presidential running mate in 2004 when Kerry asked him to. He might just as well have become a DemoRat. Because it sure is hard to tell that he is a Republican anymore. He needs to retire before he embarrasses his own party any worse than he already has. Old horses must go eventually. Put him out to pasture, Arizona. Please.

“They were elected, nobody believes that there was a corrupt election, anything else,”

Nice McCain. And you just eat beef, nobody believes you eat puppies, anything else.

DemonRATS win in obviously corrupt elections with proven vote fraud and McCain can't wait to embrace them. Republicans win in very honest elections and McCain smears them with innuendo.

I think this is the crux of the problem. The Tea Party elected members are young and effective. They show how sclerotic the old guard really are. McCain goes out to dinner with the O; Rand Paul holds a 13 hour fillibuster that simply mesmerizes the nation. Add to that, Ted Cruz really taking it to the (obviously) affirmative action Holder, during questioning before a Senate committee. I almost felt sorry for him; but, I really enjoyed watching Cruz work.

New blood threatening the old order, and they don't like it.

McCain is EVERY BIT the enemy of America, as much as Obama is.

In 2008, we were given a choice.

One one hand, we could vote for bitter, nearly-insane lyng marxist idealogue, and a murdering friend of the Police State and tyrannical oppression.

Or, we could vote for Obama.

JohnnyMac either has shifted to, or has always had, the leftist humanist worldview,

from which he concludes that you can “trust government”.

The founders based this country on the inherent DISTRUST of government.

John McCain and Lindsey Graham are now playing the roles of Cinderella’s ugly, nasty, bitter sisters. The new kids, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, have moved into the spotlight and might...gasp...provide results beneficial to liberty and our founding principles. That makes John and Lindsey just so bitchy. Don’t the new kids know that John and Lindsey live for media attention? How inconsiderate.

McCain has forgotten Reagan’s 11th Commandment: Thou shall not speak evil against another Republican. He is making a mistake that a rookie politician wouldn’t make—but he thinks he is entitled by his long tenure.

If the people of a particular state have elected McCain, so be it—until someone can beat him. As people age and forget their constituencies at home they are removed by younger candidates with non-beltway ideas. It happened to Lugar.

Meanwhile, before he is brought onto the Sunday shows to demonize the new Tea Party breed of Republicans, some party elders should take him aside and remind him that we are all in this together.

He is irrelevant and they are above him.

Paul immediately shot back yesterday, and he showed he is equally unafraid to defend himself against this nut as he is unafraid to go to Holder.

McCain is over and the quicher someone uses the hook, if they must, to get him off the stage, the better for us, him and everyone but the media and the socialists he’s been supporting his whole career.

The Old Guard is literally old. The RINOs seem to have an average age of around 75. Elders are to be respected for their wisdom, and the RINOs have none. Cruz, Paul, Rubio, and/or Lee need to smack John McCain, PUBLICLY.

So, McCain is done. It’s all over but the screaming while he gets dragged out by his ankles. Metaphorically speaking, of course
