If They're Wackos Senator McCain, Then So Am I

He represents everything that is wrong today with the Republican Party.

Everything:

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is continuing to criticize his fellow Republicans for their filibuster of McCainincoming 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.”

“They were elected, nobody believes that there was a corrupt election, anything else,”McCain said. “But I also think that when, you know, it’s always the wacko birds on right and left that get the media megaphone.”

Asked to clarify, McCain said he was referencing “Rand Paul, Cruz, Amash, whoever.”

McCain and Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) took strong exception to the filibuster, saying they support the possible use of drones to prevent terrorist attacks anywhere in the world. Some Republicans have privately worried that the high-profile stand, while garnering a lot of positive attention, will ultimately be bad for the party.

“You know, I think he’s just on the wrong side of history, and on the wrong side of this argument, really,” Paul responded in a radio interview with former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee Friday afternoon. He said he respected McCain’s service and record, but that that experience didn’t mean his colleague was always right: “I treat Sen. McCain with respect. I don’t think I always get the same in return.”

Senator McCain's service to his country in the military was a good thing.  Senator McCain's service in the Senate has become anything but.

I pray Arizona gives the man the boot the next time he's up for re-election.

Wackos my rear-end.
