Nobody Cares About John McCain Anymore




This bullshit does not make me mad anymore:

Sen. John McCain, who faces a tough a primary fight in Arizona this year, told reporters Thursday that President Obama was “directly responsible” for the horrific shooting in Orlando because of his alleged inability to defeat the Islamic State terror group and withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq. Omar Mateen reportedly pledged allegiance to ISIS during his shooting rampage early Sunday morning at a gay nightclub in Florida that left 49 people dead and 53 others injured.

The senator later added in a statement: “I misspoke. I did not mean to imply that the President was personally responsible. I was referring to President Obama’s national security decisions, not the President himself. As I have said, President Obama’s decision to completely withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq in 2011 led to the rise of ISIL. I and others have long warned that the failure of the President’s policy to deny ISIL safe haven would allow the terrorist organization to inspire, plan, direct or conduct attacks on the United States and Europe as they have done in Paris, Brussels, San Bernardino and now Orlando.”

What you just heard was the uninformed ranting and raving of a man who hasn't been relevant in any discussion since he lost the race for the presidency eight years ago. Look how fast he walked back his statement. He had days to come up with something and he rage-faced his way through a cheap shot against the president because that's how he rolls. He is a joke and he absolutely knows that in his heart of hearts. He cannot come out and admit that picking Sarah Palin was the worst blunder in his entire political career. He cannot admit that President Obama has been successful entirely because he has ignored everything John McCain says.

And, what's more, McCain is pissed because no one in the Republican Party has even considered asking him to run for president instead of Donald Trump. If there's a #nevertrump movement out there, then there's absolutely no chance they would ever ask McCain to run.

This man has been finished for so long he can't find an advisor honest enough to show him how to retire from the Senate and leave public life.

Democrats Are Trying to Save America

Never forget that Trump is a bum. A cheating, lying, stealing bum. He's the kind of bum that gives actual bums (who are usually down on their luck and doing the best they can) a bad name. He's a bum on purpose, you see, and that's the kind of bum that the American people want to see thrown out of office. He's never going to be presidential because he's just a goddamned bum, you see.

But, sometimes, I think the media is worse:
As Washington braces for this week’s expected vote to impeach President Donald Trump, partisan battle lines hardened on Sunday, with Democrats defending impeachment even if Trump isn’t removed from office and Republicans denouncing the integrity of the constitutional process.The Democratic-controlled House planned to vote Wednesday on two articles of impeachment against the Republican president, and the decision whether to make Trump the third U.S. president in history to be impeached was expected to play out along party lines. There is some d…

Spoiler Alert

Tulsi Gabbard is going to work very, very hard to re-elect Trump:
Tulsi Gabbard has been slowly edging toward leaving the Democratic Party and, it now seems more likely than not, launching a spoiler candidacy to peel disaffected left-wing votes away from the Democrats. Her “present” vote on impeachment, followed by a disavowal of what she called the “zero-sum mind-set the two political parties have trapped America in,” sets the stage for Gabbard to play the role of 2020’s Jill Stein.Left-wing anti-anti-Trumpism played an important role in the bizarre 2016 outcome.Die-hard Bernie activists, fired up with anger at the release of DNC emails stolen by Russians that purportedly showed the party had rigged the primary, demonstrated against the party outside its convention hall and tried to drown out the speakers inside with boos. Stein attacked Hillary Clinton from the left, then audaciously staged a grift-y fundraising scheme supposedly to hold recounts in the states she had labored to flip…

Trump Will Burn it All to the Ground

It is difficult to see how the latest war in the Middle East will end. I don't have any answers, and, really, no one else does, either.

Here's what people should pay attention to--this happened just as evidence of Trump's orders to the Department of Defense landed on the front page. This happened after the major holidays and just as we are beginning the 2020 primary season in earnest on the Democratic side (the GOP has decided to prevent another Pat Buchanan moment, circa 1992, from happening).

Every life that is lost is because of Trump's decisions.

Every penny that this increases the price of gas is a tax on the poor and allows people who regularly have access to Trump to maximize their profits.

Every American traveling overseas is less safe.

Everyone who cares about peace will be shouted down and marginalized because that is the media's job.

Every attempt to hold Trump accountable will probably fail because the GOP is complicit in all of his crimes.

Everyone ch…
