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.

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*.

*Actually, I know a couple who don’t.

: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.
