Sorry old man, Rand Paul just displayed more principle twelve hours than you've done in the last eight years.  STFU and GBTW.

Well as long as you get to feel better than anyone else without examining anything of substance McCain has said, or any of the reasons people are actually criticizing Paul's filibustering.

"For the better part of 20 years now, every time McCain pushes the Republican-bashing button, he gets a food pellet from the press corps. At this point he probably couldn't stop if he wanted to."

/oh snap indeed

When he's not pandering to the Republican Party, he's quite the amazing man.


He really isn't. John McCain has always been an asshole, despite the so-called "Maverick" narrative people bought into 13 years ago.

I don't get McCain. Sometimes he's a reality-based rational person, and sometimes he's John McCain.

That wasn't really a known thing at the time. It was much more about trying to get disaffected Clinton voters to cross over.

Rand Paul spent 13 hours attacking a strawman that no one was defending in the first place (whether or not the US can use drone attacks on US soil against NON-COMBATIVEcitizens on US soil.) That's not standing up for principle, that's being an attention whore.

That would bbe like me wasting 13 hours on a speech on why it would be wrong for Ron Paul to kill hobos, and the declaring when Ron Paul says he's already against it.
 
2013-03-08 06:21:46 PM  
McCain the old man has been there too long.   He is entrenched in Washington,  and I don't think he knows how to do what America needs.     He didn't do it for a presidential election, and lost.   He can't cut the mustard as a Senator anymore.

Time for him to go Arizona.

Not to white-knight McCain, but being an asshole can still be considered Maverick-y.  Especially in a sea of toadies, potato-heads, and differently-flavored assholes.  His asshole behavior may go against the grain of the normal assholes.

And for nothing: when I see the name Rand Paul, I keep thinking someone forgot a comma, and the name is really Paul Rand.  Preemptive apologies to anyone named Paul Rand.

The GOP internal feud continues...

To understand this in its fullest, you need to understand that traditionally, after a general election is when you'll see the challenging party put forth its contenders for the next general election.  This is the reason Dole was chosen to answer Clinton's first State of the Union address back in the day.  To get him out in front of the cameras, seen and heard and remembered.

Today, it's less of a thing, but make no mistake about it, Rand Paul has his eye on the WH and he does NOT have the okay of the establishment GOP in this.  He's making a power play to rile the Tea Derpers and those that call themselves Libertarians and he's doing this by deliberately fouling up the scheduled efforts of the establishment players in the GOP.

This is why you're seeing the snark and biting comments coming from the 'elders' of the GOP toward him for his filibustering efforts.  That wasn't part of 'the plan' and he's pissing them off now.

So, before you get all riled up and gung-ho about McCain's efforts to snark at Rand Paul, you should consider that he's doing that snarking on behalf of the monied interests that run the GOP.

nice analysis. I suppose it's telling i cant tell you who any front runner for the WH in 2016 would be -- but then again, i cant name a single republican/libertarian representative I respect, so maybe that's a problem... seems like the biggest lights of the republican party was an actor, and they managed to go downhill from there. If they could find a fiscally fact-sane (not conservative) leader who was "socially liberal" like America was presumably established to be, they might have a chance. Instead the gays and god is the only thing that gets it up for them anymore. Political viagra, drones are not.

Odd how RON PAUL had the infamous newsletter, hung with Stormfronters, and gave 'the South was right' speeches in front of a Confederate flag...

... and his son, Rand, just happens to want to repeal the Civil Rights Act, and started his campaign with a spokesman who celebrates 'Happy Successful and Attractive African-American Day' while ruminating on how he wants to visit the mall in KKK garb.

But remember you're the racist for even touching Rand's beliefs on the CRA.

This right here is the perfect comeback to McCain's quote.

Rand Paul declared Benghazi the worst tragedy since 9/11 and demanded Hillary be fired, even while proposing a 71% cut to their budget that would have decimated their security funds.


To be fair, if you operate as a strict isolationist, you don't have very many embassies or consulates to worry about securing.
