MasterThief: Sorry old man, Rand Paul just displayed more principle
Vectron: schrodinger: Rand Paul is a guy who loves Lochner and hates the civil rights act.[mypetjawa.mu.nu image 450x340]
phenn: Someone needs to slap a diaper on that fool and send him home.
regindyn: Most of your party's membership will die off in the next 15 years, McCain. Maybe getting some young blood isn't a terrible strategy.
Magorn: Can I get an "Oh SNAP!" from the con-gregation?
I_C_Weener: Senator McCain...I bet he was something 50 years ago.
Gulper Eel: Lord, no - we can't be talking to impressionable kids while they're impressionable. Better to let them wander off to some other even more stupid belief system.
Gyrfalcon: schrodinger: MattStafford: Just so we're on the same page, you are currently making the argument that President has the ability to kill whoever he wants, for whatever reason he wants, as long as we are at "war"?Just so we're on the same page, you are currently making the argument that you have the ability to lie and say whatever you want, made up for whatever reason, because you don't like to admit that your wrong.I asked you to define the exact conditions that allow soldiers on the battlefield to take a life. When is it okay for a soldier to shoot someone? When is it not okay? If you can't answer a question about the powers of a lowly soldier, then how do you expect me to answer the same question about the US president? Presumably, the President has all of the same authorization that a soldier does, and more.Does a regular soldier have the ability to kill whoever he wants, for whatever reason he wants, so long as we are are at "war"? No? Then you're either relying on a strawman, or you're just being a total idiot.He's being a total idiot. Or he's 19 and really thinks the world works like his Poli Sci professor taught him it should.Obtuse people irk the shiat out of me.
vernonFL: McCain is right.[encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com image 274x184]If you want to be taken seriously, you can't pull cheap political stunts just to get your base riled up.
I sound fat: Voiceofreason01: lol, sometimes McCain comes across as a senile old man, other times he comes out with quotes like the one subby used in the headline./oh snap indeedI bet its when he is attacking republicans that you find him smart, and when he is BEING a republican (rarely) is when you find him dumb, huh?/ not that hard to figure out.
Empty Matchbook: Lochsteppe: regindyn: Most of your party's membership will die off in the next 15 years, McCain. Maybe getting some young blood isn't a terrible strategy.Getting some smart new blood in an aging party: Good ideaGetting some fantastically, belligerently dumb new blood in an aging party: Potato ideaTHIS!!For God's sake, people, RAND PAUL isn't riling up members of the base who'll think critically and make informed decisions, he's riling up members who'll be taken in by BS stunts and political posturing. You know, the kinds of people who champion RON PAUL while denying his obvious, gaping flaws.
MattStafford: The president can assassinate an American citizen given the following conditions: x, y, z.The president can assassinate an American citizen based on secret conditions.If you don't think that there is a difference there, you're insane.
Duck_of_Doom: RevMercutio: He really isn't. John McCain has always been an asshole, despite the so-called "Maverick" narrative people bought into 13 years ago.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.
MasterThief: Correction: there's supposed to be an "in" somewhere in that sentence. Oh well./It's Miller time
thurstonxhowell: Philip Francis Queeg: MattStafford: My god, Fark. It is mindblowing to me how much you slobber the establishment's knob.Yep, the sucking up to Rand Paul is pretty disgusting.Seriously. The dude is a Senator with a 12-term (12!) Representative as a father. He was born with silver spoons and government dollars shoved into every orifice. What kind of moron would trust what that guy has to say?I say we enact term limits to get disingenuous wastes of space like Ron Paul out of the House. Maybe if we had gotten him out a decade ago, his government money addicted spawn wouldn't be in the Senate lying to the American people now!/ Did I bag it right?
Gulper Eel: Which was okay when it was Joe Kennedy being the published racist.
1derful: If Bush were President then every one of these douchebags who are attacking Paul would crown him with laurels for suggesting that the AG not equivocate on the question of whether or not the POTUS has authority to kill American citizens on American soil.
1derful: Libs love John McCain because he's a loser.
Infernalist: The GOP internal feud continues...
MattStafford: My god, Fark. It is mindblowing to me how much you slobber the establishment's knob.
ShawnDoc: Raharu: BENGHAZI.This right here is the perfect comeback to McCain's quote.
I_C_Weener: Senator McCain...I bet he was something 50 years ago before electricity.
