Sen. Mark Kirk says the real driving force behind the gun deal that was hatched by bipartisan work was booze and boat retreats.
The Illinois Republican said to reporters that visits to the Black Tie, a yacht owned by Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin, played a large role in the Democratic-Republican come-together over background checks and other legislation related to gun control, Roll Call reported.
You guys really ought to go out to National Harbor and see the Black Tie, which has been much of the reason for much of the bipartisan cooperation around here, he said, as quoted in Roll Call.
Frequent visitors to the luxury vessel: Democrat Sen. Kay Hagan and Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Mr. Kirk said.

God, I despise those people... the whole lot of them. And they wonder why Americans have taken on such cynical attitudes...
I wonder if Manchin provided some young boys for Kirk’s amusement, too?
Wow, where is he getting all that money?
Ted Kennedy was once photographed on a large yacht off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard, in the ever present company of winsome young ladies. Alabama senator, Howell Heflin drawled, “Well, it appears that Senator Kennedy has changed his position on offshore drillin.”
In Washington, that is the grease that silences the squeaky gears.
Maybe a little cash or something of value.
Sen. Swizzlestick, do you have any comments for your constituents?
Sure do, honey pie media lapdog..
WOO hOOO! Let’s Party!!!
She was successfully primaried by a Tea guy. The GOP pulled out all the stops to help Murkowski in the general, in their efforts to undermine Sarah.
The GOPe made sure Murkowski came back.
Once again this proves the old saying “Follow The Money”.
They sure did. They knew she’d have to switch and engineered her Independent run and got ALL the RAT vote, all they had to mark the ballot was ‘MRK’ or “MORK” or anything ‘resembling’ Murkowski.
I believe it was the RSC - Republican Senate Committee - that
did all the dirty work.
Size matters. Tigers and Normans are bigger.
Maybe, Joe Manchan should change the boats name to the Ugly Duckling, Getting Klucky ?
Hookers go to boat party.
No wonder Mark Sanford wants to go to Washington.
Where’s a Nazi U-Boat when you need one?
This morning, I was watching CSPAN and saw Sen. Claire McCaskill stumbling around as she made her way to the front to cast her “AYE” vote to move the gun grab bill forward, and thought, gee, she must’ve hung one over last night.
Then, I saw your post on the party boat...
Yup. She DID hang one over last night!!!
So, I Tweeted her about it. Just shameful!
Thanks for the post. It came in handy!
LOL! Good one!
It is time for a massive rally on Capitol Hill to call out these RINOs and figure out if the Republican Party is going to be put back together. A massive rally completely focused on calling out the GOP and their complete bait and switch on their party’s platform. Where in the 2010 “Pledge to America” did the GOP say anything about a promise to pass gun control laws?
I hope this party goes down in flames; it’s really us vs. them now. The GOP is only pretending to represent conservatives.
Do the French still do boat sinkings?
[[Once again this proves the old saying Follow The Money.]]
When democrats are invovled it does NOT matter if you follow them oney- they will NEVER be punished and they know it-
