Maverick McCain can’t understand why unhelpful wacko birds are trying to block gun control

The Senate’s biggest dupe once again comes to the aid of the Democrats.  And in return he gets patted on the head by his media masters.  For being sensible.  And just the kind of “common sense” compromiser and thoughtful leader we need going forward.

Unless, of course, he happens to be running for President. At which time he becomes not so much sensible and filled with common sense as he does angry and out-of-touch, a  rich old white cur with a profligate wife, extreme conservative tendencies, and an unstable disposition.   Who hates.

Here’s a radical idea:  instead of the GOP “rebranding,”  howsabout those on its voter rolls start calling Democrats Democrats and insist that those Democrats wearing team R buttons go join the fucking national Party they most often try to benefit.

Or is that just my being a tawdry “true believer”?  — a Hobbit wacko bird extremist! — exhibiting precisely the attitude that will (gasp!) cost “us” seats in the Senate.

– Seats that are held by Republicans.  Who push the Democrat’s anti-constitutionalist agenda.  In order to remain “electable.”

Go team!

  1. Unless, of course, he happens to be running for President. At which time he becomes not so much sensible and filled with common sense as he does angry and out-of-touch, a rich old white cur with a profligate wife, extreme conservative tendencies, and an unstable disposition. Who hates.

    And McCain (and company) learned… nothing from this.

    Oops, I tell a lie. They learned to flog (real) conservatives more, and more loudly.

  2. The only people listening to the old fart are Democrats.

  3. Ed makes a very good point about just how insulting it is that Mav claims not to “understand” opposition to the proposal. Cruz and Paul have made it abundantly clear why they stand in opposition. I hope they have the gumption to stand up to the old fraud and put him in his place:

    “Senator, are you saying that you’ve completely ignored all of our Constitutional arguments? After all your efforts to encourage your colleagues to listen and work with one another, couldn’t you at least spare a few moments to listen to what your fellow Republicans have to say? Or is that a compliment you extend only to those of whom your media handlers approve?

    Perhaps we should give you the benefit of the doubt, and assume that you have indeed given our arguments your attention, but find them too complex and difficult to understand. You’d hardly be the first in the Senate to find the phrase ‘shall make no law’ an awfully difficult concept to grasp.

    Which is it, Senator? Too busy to listen to your colleagues, or too stupid to comprehend?”

    About like the Bush years.

  5. Maybe he doesn’t understand because he’s senile.

    I’d bet that he’s actually proud that he lost to a historic, transformational, pop culture phenom like Barry Soetero. Doubly proud that he took his drubbing with such grace and class. All his friends in the media told him so.

    Makes you wonder what Mitt Romney thinks about his defeat.

  6. he needs more wizz wizz like meggy

  7. #theydidsomethingtohisbrain

  8. Maybe he doesn’t understand because he’s senile.

    Maybe so. I’ve thought that a time or two. I think the real answer is that he’s an attention whore. If he gets face-time on the Sunday shows and in Statuary Hall on the news shows, it doesn’t matter to him whose heads he’s spitting down on since all that matters is that he is in demand as a “maverick”. A “sensible” maverick when he’s playing footsy with the dems and who doesn’t like that in the MSM? Excepting when he managed to snag the nomination and became a worn out old coot. Which is all he really is anyway.

    I’d rather listen to Alan Simpson, if I have to listen to old geezers.

  9. McCain is how you say “Biden” in Republican.

  10. You can die now, John.

  11. Pablo, what’d I say? I haven’t even commented in this thread!

  12. No, no. The decrepit, senile John. By all means, continue living.

  13. Well, Hagel went and jumped off a cliff so now McCain has to do it too. Hagel is SecDef now anyway. So it works. Whatever it is.

  14. The man who rides “Maverick” hard and will put him away wet at the glue factory when his usefulness is at an end.

  15. Why does the text of the “Remarks by the President on Reducing Gun Violence — Hartford, CT” include audience participation?

  16. Why does the text of the “Remarks by the President on Reducing Gun Violence — Hartford, CT” include audience participation?

    Why does any horribly unfunny clown show need a laugh track?

  17. To be perceived as that which it is not in reality.

    We should add the modifier “virtual” to every word said to describe him and his.
