Tweet of the Day, The Gathering Storm edition.

If Trump is the nominee, you will have to get used to stuff like this.

Admittedly, if Trump is the nominee it won’t be my problem except in the most general sense, but it’s gonna be a problem for a bunch of people, including quite a few that I generally wish well. Said wishes would be of course utterly useless, but I’d still make ’em.

Tweet of the Day, And Cory Gardner Breathes A Sigh Of Relief edition.

I have to agree with Iowapundit, here:

…John McCain would do Gardner more harm than good.

And just *how* bad are @BarackObama’s latest bundler-ambassadors?

Put it this way: John McCain was kicking their rumper.

John Freaking McCain.

Retire, @SenJohnMcCain.

If John McCain doesn’t like long Senate meetings trying to give McCain’s fellow-Senators the information that they’ll need to decide whether we’re going to bomb somebody, well, that’s easily fixed.

McCain playing poker on his iPhone
As the hearing continues, our ace photographer Melina Mara reports she spotted Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) “passing the time by playing poker on his iPhone during the hearing.”

They indeed have video proof at the link – as well as McCain’s tone-deaf ‘apology.’ God save me from Senators with entitlement issues*.

:wearily: There’s a reason we don’t use dollar coins already, Senator McCain.

Blessed if I know what it is, precisely; nor do I really care what the reason is.  All I know is that the federal government’s tried to get people to use the blessed things for my entire life, and the American people keep refusing to. How many times do we have to beat our heads against a bri… oh.  Right.  John McCain.  Silly me.

PS: Retire, Senator McCain.

Retire, Senator John McCain.

As somebody privately noted to me: Janet Napolitano is undoubtedly resigning from DHS in order to have a clear run for McCain’s Senate seat.  And I for one am opposed to John McCain remaining a Senator past this term.  Not enough to simply let Napolitano have the seat; but there are people out there who are much less loyal to the GOP than I am, and many of them live in Arizona.

John McCain will be 80 in 2016.  His health has not been good for pretty much my entire lifespan*.  It is time for him to retire.

Tweet/Video of the Day, This Is Why We Got Ted Cruz Elected edition. [NSFW]

I am a connoisseur of Fuck you, Senator John McCains. So are many of you. I believe that we can all agree, though, that this is one of the finest Fuck you, Senator John McCains that you will ever, ever watch. Ladies and gentlemen: Senator Ted Cruz.

Sorry about the swear words up there, but that was just too good a smack down for me to bowdlerize my admiration.

Speaking *as* a neocon hawk who enjoyed Rand Paul’s filibuster…

…I agree with Allahpundit’s reaction to John McCain’s / Lindsey Graham’s reaction to said filibuster:

You would think Maverick might at least seize the opportunity to note that the guy who beat him five years ago did so in part by campaigning on a lie, but that would mean giving an inch of ground to the isolationists on his own side. So instead he sides with O even though everyone from Reince Priebus to Fox News to the Ron Paul fan base to Jon Stewart is patting Paul on the back, and inexplicably he insists on being nasty about it just in case anyone who enjoyed Paul’s performance hasn’t been completely alienated by McCain yet. Question for my fellow hawks: Is this really the hill to die on vis-a-vis paleocon/libertarian foreign policy? Arguing in favor of a president’s power to fire missiles at an enemy combatant on U.S. soil even if he’s a U.S. citizen and isn’t engaged in terrorism at the time when the FBI could just as easily go in and grab him? If that’s a “wacko bird” position, then a lot of people who agree with it will be left wondering whether the entire mainstream rap on libertarians and paleocons as being “fringe” and “extreme” is a lie. Maverick and Graham need to learn to pick their battles.

So I guess John McCain’s gearing up for not running for re-election in 2016.

This is just me guessing.

Ain’t that a shame.

:pause:

I’d post something more, but I’m a) emotionally drained; and b) have been pretty much done with John McCain since 2008 anyway. Hope he has an honorable retirement and I recommend no boots thrown at his head on the way out. The idea is to ease him out of that seat, and replace it.
