Posted on 03/08/2013 5:38:03 AM PST by Biggirl
Elder Sen. John McCain, who this week engaged in friendly fire when he launched his "maverick" missiles at fellow Republicans seeking clarification on the administration's drone policies, has upped the ante, deriding Tea Party-backed GOP lawmakers as "wacko birds."

The only Wacko Bird I’m seeing is McLaime himself.
I hope you’re right. It would be great if you are.
Wow, I am surprised by the large quick responses to this post.
...and I held my nose and voted for this POS (oh, but I need to hold him forever in high regard for his days as a POW...)
Among the Republicans, who gets a bigger media megaphone than McCain? So which wacko side is he on -- left or right?
We love him.
We really, really, really love him.....
Gov.Palin campaigned for John McCain, knowing full well he was like this. I would like to think she would help us get rid of Lindsey Graham in 2014 but she would have to go directly against John McCain to do that.
McCain, Linseed, et al are just JEALOUS that Rand Paul got more attention than they did this week.
Welcome to today’s Republican Party, ladies and gentlemen. The Senator who was the party’s nominee in 2008 and who at least claims to be a small government advocate is going out of his way to claim a prominent member of the new generation of small government advocats is “wacko.” He only saves his worst insults for other Republicans. Dems like Obama and Hillary are his “dear friends.”
He never wanted to win the presidency. Scary with all those higher expectations.
Manchuriam Candidate of the 21st century?
McCain (and Lindsey) signify all that is wrong with the republican party.
Dear John: Go crash another F4, you insipid loser. Senility isn’t pretty.
McCain calls U.S. economy ‘fundamentally sound’ on same day Lehman Brothers declared bankrupt
This was the first time in my life I didn’t vote for the presidential candidate I wanted to win, because I knew he didn’t really want the job, or was a complete fool, or liar, or all three.
Juan is a drone.
McCain has been the tool of the enemy since the VC turned him in the Hanoi Hilton. Since being broken under torture he has needed mental health services but never received them. John is a horribly limited and deranged man. Had he not had a highly respected father he would never have been given the opportunities he received to be a pilot, a patriot and a senator. He has been out of his element his entire life.
IF my memory serves me correctly, wasn’t there a move to recall McCain around the time that 9-11 happened?
Seems to me that the effort was derailed when the Twin Towers were hit.
Anybody from Arizona remember that? Can that effort be started up again?
They would rather continue scooping up Obama's droppings for a living than to relinquish control of the republican party to young conservatives.
The sad truth is that they have more in common with Obama and his BIG GOVERNMENT philosophy than with the young republicans they criticize.
After all - they bear a large part of the blame for the BIG GOVERNMENT and $10 Trillion dollar debt that Obama inherited.
And they have gone along with his socialist spending spree and power trip.
In the last 4 years not one of them has had the backbone to stand up and do what Rand Paul did in an effort to stop the Obama power grab.
McCain says that Paul and Cruz don’t represent the GOP. It’s these old dinosaurs that think he and his peers ARE the GOP and regular folks (voting members) just follow along.
That is what Paul and Cruz need to call them out on.
You guys can call him anything you want, but may I suggest:
Ordinarily we ignore losers. We should do the same in this case.
“It’s always the wacko birds on right and left that get the media megaphone,” McCain told Huffington Post’s Jon Ward in a story titled “John McCain: Getting Back To Maverick, With An Eye On Retirement.”
“Wacko birds” eh McLame? That should be a badge worn proudly by those two as the comment came from a dick head like you.
BTW, what happened to that long standing Senate principle of not deriding a fellow Senator. You could not do it during your lame run for president albeit the oppostion was going to be the worse affliction on this country in human history.
I gladly recognize your service to this country in the 60’s, but like a wine held too long, it has turned sour.
There’s three in our marriage- Cindy McCain
NO question. As someone said, when you find a turtle on a fence post out in the middle of a 1,000 acre ranch - you know he didn’t get there by himself.
I agree there needs to be a discussion about these issues (like drones), but I didn’t see anybody doing it until Paul’s fillibuster. The discussion should be public and open, not behind closed doors at the WH or away at dinner at some fancy restaurant in DC. That’s just political chicken sh.
The “birds” will feed on your sorry old carcass, McPantStain.
HOORAY Rand & Ted! The whole world is a battlefield against totalitarians, socialists and RINOS. Life, liberty and the pursuit and destruction of all three.
And the only difference between the 2008 and 2012 GOP nominees is that milt has too nice of a public persona to insult Paul and Cruz directly. Rather, milt would have his hirelings attack Paul and Cruz.
How broken is the GOPe that 2 of it’s absolute worst members are its Presidential nominees?
“McLame is the perfect example of the guy who thinks hes the smartest guy in the room,”
He’s the perfect stereotype of the lefts conceptualization of angry, old, white guys.
GAME ON, Mr. GOP Elite McCain! Game on!
Ultra Left Wing RINO McCain has made his final choice in the battle between UNLIMTED BIG FEDERAL GOVERNMENT and the Silent Majority, which is now the T.E.A. Party.
After decades of being paid by tax-burdened US citizens, McCain has chosen to follow the advice given him at the Hanoi Hilton by his North Vietnam tutors: ‘ Damn the US Constitution, full speed ahead to Total Infinite Power of Big Government! ‘
Keep it up McCain, as we who are TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY are keeping track of who is joining your shrill voice of War on the US Constitution.
Game on Mr. GOP Elite McCain, GAME ON !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Keating Five! Enough said.
You should see the grief he and graham are catching on twitter! The more, the better sez I.
Who you calling wacko, Maverick?
When asked, Robert Michel said he was proud that McCain was following the path he established.
Two things. “...that always get the media megaphone”,says
the jerk who is on tv like its his day job.
Second, if Sarah Palin doesn’t take a stand against Mccrap
this time, it will seriously affect my opinion of her.
“Keep it up McCain, as we who are TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY are keeping track of who is joining your shrill voice of War on the US Constitution.”
And an outright declaration of war on the TEA Party. Isn’t his first shot, but it might be his last.
“His own net worth, I’m sure.”
McCain, retire, you are harming our country
I do miss Phil Graham.
mccain has chosen to sow the wind and reap the whirlwind. He might never find his way home again.
McCain needs to be Baker acted for his own good, bless his heart.
Not me. I voted for that neat lady who was going to be one heartbeat away from his job. He was just baggage.
Keep at it McCain.
Keep at it. If you lose Sarah’s stubborn support, you are finished.
I don’t know if it will happen, but I’m a whole lot less sure she has it now, than last time around.
Sarah it may be time to cut McCain loose.
All I can say is the wrong Arizona Senator retired last fall. We miss you Sen. Kyl.
The ONLY 'Republican' in that particular group...the people of Arizona are a forgiving lot, it appears.
Well, he is right. They represent their constituents, not the GOP. Why do you think McNasty has his panties in a twist?
I'll be in line with you VRWCarea51.
John McCain is a collaborator.
