FULL TITLE: Ouch! Jeff Flake makes two embarrassing errors on his way out. One was announcing his farewell on Twitter
Sen. Jeff Flake made his share of mistakes since taking office, chief among them being to underestimate the intelligence of the average Republican voter, so its only fitting that the lawmaker makes two embarrassing errors on his way out the door.
The first and perhaps most brutal error was for the moderate Trump-hating Arizona Republican to announce his farewell on Twitter.
Full of gratitude today as I deliver my farewell address in the Senate Chamber at 11:00 EST, Flake advertised.

The second mistake was to try to suck up to the liberals at The Daily Show, who tweeted a photo of one of their correspondents watching Flakes farewell speech on the Senate floor while cozily wrapped in a blanket emblazoned with tweets from the outgoing senator.
No better way to enjoy @JeffFlakes farewell address than in the warm embrace of his meaningless tweets, the shows official account tweeted.
Flake thought it would be cute to respond: Hey @TheDailyShow, how can I get one of those blankets?
He didn’t torpedo Kavanaugh because he knew Kavanaugh was a fellow Bush League Republican who was unlikely to side with the citizens.
can someone splain to me why the twitter announcement was mistake. The daily show enhances his liberal credentials and someday he will parlay into a $$$$$ new job. So hard to see why these are mistakes from his standpoint.
He didnt kill the Kavanaugh nomination because he thinks he thinks he can run for Governor of AZ and win.
Hey, me too!
We're the same.
LOL!!! He MIGHT win...the Mormons don’t care about anything but that he is a fellow Mormon!
And that is quite a stretch.
Rather like: The guy wasn't all bad. He could have killed one more of many puppies he had drowned, but he was scared off by the nearby bulldog...
Oh, dear God, NO Flake for governor.
Thank gawd hes out !!!!!
Flake’s life was in the balance.
Flake. Sometimes the name itself is a warning.
What a moron.
He may have torpedoed Kavanaugh ifhis vote would have been decisive. But with Manchin and Collins voting for Kavanaugh, Flakes vote would have caused a tie which Pence would have broken.
>>He didnt torpedo Kavanaugh because he knew Kavanaugh was a fellow Bush League Republican who was unlikely to side with the citizens.
Let this stark truth sink in.
Remember how Shrub was motivated enought to pick up his phone and call senators to lobby for his boy Kavanaugh.
He'd probably have a great chance to win, if the recent election of Kyrsten - Arizona is a "meth lab of democracy" - Sinema is any indication of where AZ is heading.
Funny you should mention Jeff Flake killing puppies. His family business did just that on hot summer days over one weekend when the AC failed and they didn’t have any alarms set up to notify anyone and no one was present at the kennel they owned. All the dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens died a horrible death from the heat.
That’s just the kind of guy Jeff Flake (and family) is.
I think you're right. Look how he voted in the baby killing Planned Parenthood case.
I put him and Roberts in the same category. Neither can be relied on to do the right thing. There's no reason for taxpayers to fund any abortions. None.
Flake should go party with the Weekly Standard boys...
