By The Right Scoop


Mark Levin hammered John McCain for being unwilling to engage Ted Cruz while he was on the floor for 21 hours, only to wait for him to finish to attack Cruz. Levin called McCain a ‘complete useful idiot for the Democrats’ and said he’s a pathetic Senator. And more…

  • 57thunderbird

    McCain lost his mind long ago.

  • Rocco11

    Hanoi John is Sarah Palin’s guy…

    • 57thunderbird

      That is the one thing about Sarah that really bugs me.As long as she remains loyal to McCain, everything she says or tries to portray is suspect.

      • Rocco11

        exactly right.

      • DarkKnight2016

        Now that is BS. She is loyal to him because he gave her the opportunity to be his running mate. Would we have known about Sarah Palin had he not chosen her? She is practically the mother of the Tea Party movement.

        • 57thunderbird

          I disagree.There is no foundation for her continued loyalty.Sorry.

          • DarkKnight2016

            Don’t say sorry to me, you are the one making the ridiculous comment questioning Sarah Palin’s motives.

            • 57thunderbird

              Okay.Whatever.I find my comment to be right on target.

              • DarkKnight2016

                Of course YOU would. I am going to stop now because get pretty heated when people attack Governor Palin and I might say something that gets me blocked from The Right Scoop.

                • 57thunderbird

                  Where did I attack her?Oh,that’s right I didn’t.As long as she continues to defend him I will remain suspicious.If you don’t like that,oh well.

                • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

                  She doesn’t “defend” him. What a load of nonsense.

                • warpmine

                  Indifference isn’t exactly a criticism either and she has had ample opportunity to do so. If she were my sister, I would certainly get on her for that. As long as she continues to shrug it off then she will not earn 100% trust.

                  I know she’ll probably bring up the Reagan commandment here but let’s face it, McCain’s betrayal doesn’t even come close for that application and you, I and everyone else here knows it.

                  I enjoy everything she says about the left and our POS POTUS usurper but she best come out and smack this dinosaur down once and for all. Let’s face it, McCain’s family regularly rags on her dragging her through the gutter blaming his inadequacies on her. Projection is nice but she has to come out and do this mainly because it would have more meaning if a former confidant (yeah, right) would step up and smack this wipe down.

                • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

                  You are manufacturing this ‘indifference.”

                  I’ll never understand this need by some to wish for a magic joystick so they can operate Rush, Levin, Palin, etc. to say what they think ought to be said.

                  And yet Rush has talked about this phenomenon for years. Conservatives are always telling him they are mad because he didn’t say this or that.

                  These people have their own schedule and lives. They get to things when they get to them, not when we wish they would.

                • warpmine

                  “You are manufacturing this ‘indifference.”
                  Perhaps, it’s perceived as you say. You have to admit a smack down is in order and would be beneficial to McCain as well as conservatives. Then again, this wipe has never listened to anyone but maybe his girlfriend Graham and the NYT.

                  If it were me, I would have provoked him into a heart attack.

                • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

                  Heh. Note to self: if you ever get a chance to shake hands with the guy, yell “BOO!” real loud and suddenly.

        • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

          She isn’t “loyal,” she’s been carefully using him as a foil. She met her obligations to him when she endorsed him as promised.

          Now only the PDS-deranged keep trying to tie her to McCain.

      • Steve Angell

        I agree but am not too surprised. She is not nearly as Conservative as she claims. McCain only picked her because she was a maverick. But she has found no love in Alaska after showing her true colors when helping McCain win reelection by telling lie after lie. Going back to DC and doing the same old same old. Proving he just lies through his teeth to the people at home to get elected then is a liberal in DC. Makes one wonder if Sarah is the same. Speaks well but if elected she would be as liberal as McCain.

        But this is off topic.

        • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

          And fictional.

          • warpmine

            Forgive me, but omission isn’t exactly a strong statement against.

            Hayworth wasn’t exactly Ted Cruz, but a rattlesnake would be an improvement over McCain.

          • warpmine

            One more item if I could, if you have a link to her coming out to smack this idiot down, please I want to see it so I can admit I was in error. Please, I beg you, somebody, anybody provide it so I can have “feel” better after McCain’s venomous attacks on our man Ted.

          • Steve Angell

            I really hope she runs for and wins a Senate seat. But until she does I could never support her for President. She needs to prove firstly she can win and secondly she will act as a conservative in office.

            I will try to find the link about her and gop in Alaska Mass Tea Party of yazchattiest youtube most likely where I heard it. Great channels. Google will easily find her campaigning for McCain in 2010.

            • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

              So in other words, her record doesn’t matter one bit. What she needs is a record.

              And round and round and round.

              • Steve Angell

                I see her record as mixed. I do not see it as positive that she got so much support from the Democrats in Alaska. McCain gets support from the Democrats which is bad not good. It does matter but it is thin and ended on a sour note. For now she might not be able to win her home state which I see as a problem.

                If she runs and wins office then that all goes away. She will then be judged mostly by the office she is holding.

                I want her to run and become President. I believe she is more conservative now than when office. She needs to prove she can still win office to prove she will win the Presidency. IMHO.

                • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

                  I hate those sorts of things. You prove you can win by winning the office of the Presidency, not by winning yet another lesser office.

                  I say she should either run directly for President, or just convert SarahPAC into something like the Heritage Foundation. I see no use to her in fooling around with any supposed middle ground crap at this stage in her life. It would be a tremendous waste.

                  Maybe if she were thirty-five, but definitely not now, when she’s at her peak years and has the most recognition.

    • 57thunderbird

      Yup.

    • Steve Angell

      Nothing to do with Sarah. Sarah in no way endorsed what McCain did here. She is in no way responsible for what he did. Cruz will not criticize McCain either does that mean John is his guy?

      Read and abide by the posting guidelines.

      You’re done.

  • DarkKnight2016

    And now I have to hear Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-California) try to lie to the American people about Obamacare on the Senate floor instead of the passionate words of Senators Cruz, Lee, Paul and Rubio.

  • kayeellen

    Mark Levin, and I would like an answer from you directly. Did Ted Cruz ever address the issue of taking on OCare*?* himself personally … is he willing to do it if this highway to hell passes? And another question. If our 28th amendment states that no law can be passed w/out it being good enough for our Congress … why aren’t the American people able to refuse it as well …. if they so choose

  • William556

    That’s an insult to idiots. McCain isn’t an idiot, he’s a traitor.

    • kong1967

      A+

  • Freedomswatch

    Senator Mc Cain needs to switch his party affiliation now. He has crossed over the aisle so many times he should just stay there, less wear and tear on the senate carpet.

    • 57thunderbird

      I agree.

    • kong1967

      He should just start picking out his coffin. He’s got one foot in it already. He’s brain dead.

    • BlueGood

      About the ONLY thing America can be grateful to McCain for is bringing Sarah Palin to the “Lime Light”…..

      His service was fine, and no doubt America is beyond thanking him, but he has MILKED it for all it’s worth….

      Dump the RINO!…oops I meant TURNCOAT!

  • LIBERTYUSA

    …3minutes 52seconds of TRUTH that should be listened to by ALL .”

  • Subie201

    McLame is the WORST senator in the nation! Not only for the reasons Mark gave, but for other reasons as well. First, he may have been in the military, but he has forgotten what it’s like to be tortured..the way he torturing his party. Second, he is a republican under false pretense! He ran against several good candidates such as Fred Thompson, but had NO intention of taking the presidency, grabbing it away from other potentials. He lied about signing on to defund Obamacare, but he never had any intention of getting rid of it…only to remake it! McLame needs to face reality…it’s time for him to say, “Goodnight Gracy!”

  • kong1967

    As McCain said…”elections have consequences”. It’s as if he’s saying “hey, don’t blame me….you voted for it and we’re going to let you have it”. Well, McCain, if you do that it will seriously hurt a lot of people and the economy, and even when Obamacare fails the Democrat party will create more “corrective” legislation instead of kill it. We cannot let the train wreck happen.

    • tinlizzieowner

      As McCain said…”elections have consequences”
      Yes they do John, yes they do. ;-) ;-)

      • kong1967

        …and we are suffering as a consequence of McCain getting re-elected.

  • actionsspeaklouder

    Exactly – wait until Cruz is done so he can’t engage in discussion mano a mano. What a coward McCain is. And Reid too. He didn’t have the GUTS to ask questions when Cruz was on the floor – Reid would rather stab him in the back. Both of these intellectual midgets are cowards.

    • proudhispanicconservative

      Intellectual is not the appropiate word for them, idiots is more suitable.

      • actionsspeaklouder

        In agreement, I stand corrected.

        • proudhispanicconservative

          Lol -)……….

  • wdobni

    elections have consequences…as Mr. McCain is about to find out

    • Steve Angell

      No he will not.

      McCain won reelection in 2010 by being a Tea Party Conservative. He was for every single Tea Party issue.

      He went back to Washington DC and broke every single campaign promise. Same thing he has done every six years.

      If he ran again he would once again be a Tea Party Conservative for 9 months to win reelection.

      • 57thunderbird

        Lets hope the Tea Party has learned its lesson, and will do a much better job of vetting candidates.

  • conservativeBC

    They are what they are. We need to realize that and go after their enablers like Ed Morrissey over at Hot Air.

    These establishment bloggers post enough Teaparty red meat to keep a
    readership, but their main function is to gently nudge their readers
    away from Teaparty candidates. They are the ones who convinced the
    masses that only a moderate like McCain could beat Obama. They are the
    ones who scared conservatives into believing not picking Romney as the
    nominee would mean defeat.

    • RosiesSeeingRed

      FOX does it too. I can’t even watch it anymore.

    • c4pfan

      I agree and that goes for the RNC as well.

  • DarkKnight2016

    Let us not forget that while 2016 is a Presidential Election year it is also a year when Senator McCain will be up for re-election. He has hinted that he may retire but just in case he doesn’t let’s consider the recruitment options:

    Martha McSally, retired United States Air Force colonel
    Trent Franks, U.S. Representative
    Matt Salmon, U.S. Representative
    David Schweikert, U.S. Representative
    Ben Quayle, Former U.S. Representative (Son of former Vice President Dan Quayle)

    I understand that Sarah Palin owns a home in Scottsdale while having her permanent residence in Alaska but perhaps with some persuasion she could become a permanent Arizona resident.

    • BHliberty

      I was thinking the same! Sarah Palin would be a great candidate an empty senate seat in AZ should McCain retire. Who knows, maybe she is working on convincing him to do so! I believe she would have the support from not only the citizens of the state but the good governor, Jan Brewer!

      What an excellent choice it would be!

      • deTocqueville1

        Sarah should be in the WH if she wants to run for anything.

        • BHliberty

          Oh sure she should in 2016! But…..just saying if J McCain decides to retire, in the meantime, she would be a fabulous candidate! We need Sarah in DC, and now!

    • Steve Angell

      I thought this for some time. However Sarah has been very resistant to running for the Senate. I wondered why until recently on Greta when she said she had almost no support from the GOP in Alaska. She basically said she was not much of a Republican sort of an Alaskan independent like her husband.

      • DarkKnight2016

        Hey, if Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) can win as a write-in candidate then why can’t Sarah Palin?

    • Longiron

      I thought McCain just got re elected in 2012 ? That would take him to 2018 but there were reports he was thinking about retiring in 2016. He will not retire because his little man ego and he loves the spotlight. However, he may not get elected next time around. Could be wrong on his last election date ?

      • DarkKnight2016

        No he was re-elected in 2010

    • Swamp Fox

      At this point I would be happy to see Foghorn Leghorn strutting his stuff down the aisle, pointing at McCain while loudly proclaiming…

      I say, I say… that boy’s about as sharp as a bowlin’ ball!

  • proudhispanicconservative

    I know why MC LAME didnt go toe to toe with Cruz and thats because he was going to be pummeled. Cruz not only is a conservative icon now, but also has the academia to completely Destroy any of these dirtbags. Just when you thought that Mclame could not go any lower. There is going to come a time when there is going to be a reckoning, and the time for us to take it to the streets, for far too long the silent majority has been taking it in the back from these cowards, and we are simply getting fed up with it.

    • Sigelitedark

      That is exactly why the old guard hates Ted Cruz–they’ve gotten too long in the tooth, haven’t done their homework, and are completely at a loss when it comes to debating any issues on the floor against Cruz or any of the other freshmen senators I suspect.

  • marketcomp

    Why would CSPAN advertise that this was a quasi-filibuster but then put Sen. Cruz’s filibuster in the record of filibusters. This just goes to show that all the media, even CSPAN, will be against Sen. Cruz and especially Conservatives.

    • Steve Angell

      Yes they redefined filibuster narrowly to take away the win Cruz just got.

  • celestiallady

    Wish we could just start a new country without the bad guys!

    • Sentinel

      That’s a very sweet sentiment… I like that. Thank you! :)

      • celestiallady

        Thank you! That thought entered my head today and won’t go away.

  • c4pfan

    I knew that since McCain refused to say Obama wouldn’t make a good President and stood there and argued with a lady supporting him!

  • Sigelitedark

    One of the big accomplishments of Ted Cruz, Lee, and company in their engagement of the American people into the murkiness of 0bamacare is that they have helped re-introduce a large segment of constituents throughout the country to the mechanism that is Congress, and have hopefully seeded kernals of doubt in the minds of the Borg Dem masses.

  • BearNJ

    John McCain: Your state called their idiot Senator is missing.

  • Sentinel

    McLame is a traitor. However, in God’s wisdom, that rat bastard didn’t get elected in 2008. Now I know you’re saying: But Obama got elected! That’s true… and America got to see that devil pass the worst piece of legislation in the history of America. And they got to see all the corruption this animal is involved with. And in 2010, something wonderful happened… the Tea Party emerged and we cleaned house (for what good it did us)!
    And in God’s wisdom, Mitt Romney didn’t get elected in 2012. And you might say: But Obama got elected! Yes he did unfortunately. But you got to see more corruption – especially with Benghazi. And you got to finally see the pattern of the decrepit GOPe leadership – offering up moderate, RINO candidates vs. Allen West, Sarah Palin, or even Santorum or Gingrich. We all realized what these bums (Boehner, McConnell, McLame, Cantor, Grahamnesty, etc.) are really all about. Many of us had our eyes opened to that cronyism all at once. And we saw that the Republicans for the most part are just as dirty as the damned Democraps. And for the sake of brevity, I’ll stop there – because there is much that we have learned during this dark malaise of the Obama regime.
    God, in His infinite wisdom, showed us the true colors of what these RINOs are all about. And he further exposed the evil within the Democrap party. And he stirred our hearts and brought us heroes like Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Jason Chaffetz, Trey Gowdy, Rand Paul, etc. And he exposed some of Rubio’s short-comings. And now that we’re awake and we can smell a rat, we’ll all be better shoppers and better voters. And perhaps in 2014 and 2016, we’ll take back our country and start healing all the evil these crap weasels have done. Thank you Lord!

    • Stehekin912

      Amen. He didn’t wake us up just to let us fall down in darkness. Keep the faith and keep striving to reclaim and protect His gifts, including freedom and the Constitution of the United States of America.

  • Highlandtwp

      and criminal.

      • Swamp Fox

        Wicked, criminalistic and frauds!

  • puma_for_life

    I recall Reid asking Cruz if he would let McCain speak; this was towards the end, and Cruz said he only had until noon and shut the request down. This in no way is a support of Mc Cain because I feel he is deranged, but it seemed that McCain wanted to speak. Same thing happened with Rand; McCain told him “later” when he asked to speak during his filibuster. I wouldn’t have let Durbin speak either.

    • Aaron Herald

      You clearly didn’t listen to the clip, Levin mentioned the request by Reid that McCain be allowed to speak.

      • puma_for_life

        Very weird as I thought I was responding to a comment from someone else who apparently didn’t listen to the clip and didn’t hear that…I think my comment showed up in the wrong place.

  • honestynow

    Couldn’t get up with McCain yesterday, but called today and asked that he retire or go ahead and switch parties.

  • sDee

    It is always one step forward and one step back for me with Levin.

    McCain is not a useful idiot for the Democrats. McCain is a PROGRESSIVE! A stinking rotten, globalist sell-out to the Republic, the Constitution, our military, and our sovereignty..

    • StrangernFiction

      It’s difficult to believe someone as sharp as Levin can’t see this. I get the feeling he holds back and sugar coats things for his audience, or for himself.

      • sDee

        I get the same feeling – in the end it is we, the citizens who will take America back. It would be good if we did it wiht the GOP but we will not wait for them.

        Delaying that inevitability with sugar coatings will only make it more painful and disruptive,

        Mark needs to level with his audience.

        • StrangernFiction

          It will be interesting to see how he reacts to the Repubican cave on defunding Boehnercare. If he doesn’t divorce the GOP he will lose much credibility. Ditto Hannity.

  • Laurel

    Just goes to show that God saved us from ourselves in 2008.

    • Swamp Fox

      A real catch-22 is it not? Sad, but true.

      • Laurel

        True…would of maybe have been worse because McCain would sent troops into Libya, Egypt, and Syria for starters. Al Qaeda would be fully armed. And conservatives would have a stain that can’t be washed off.

        At least Democrats own Obama hook, line, and sinker.

    • ApplePie101

      At least Obama cranked up the heat fast enough that we boiling frogs had to jump.

  • Mike

    He is not an useful idiot. He is an useful axxhole.

  • JohnCraven

    I actually think Levin’s rant against McShame is a waste of breath.
    The one I think Levin should really go after is Senator John Cornyn of – what state is from – oh yeah, our neighbors to the west, TEXAS!
    Senator Cornyn on Hannity’s radio show today was nothing less than a profile in complete cowardice.
    Senator Cornyn basically told Senator Ted Cruz to FORGET THE ALAMO and only remember that in the US Senate “RESISTENCE IS FUTILE” to borrow the great line of the BORG from Star Trek.
    Cornyn is really stretching the limits of all credibility in stating that what we really need to do is to get Senators like Hillary Landrieu from my home state to be on the record as once again having voted for this insanity. Cornyn must really be a complete fool if he thinks we here in Louisiana don’t know what she will do and that is support this insanity no matter what. The same goes for the other “democrap” senators in Red States. He actually claims this is how we will win back the Senate in 2014 and the White House in 2016. I got news for Cornyn. If that’s how it goes he’s likely to lose his own seat at the next election.
    Cruz is correct, we need the Republicans to step up to the plate and end this nonsense and they can start by voting against cloture on Friday or Thursday or whenever it comes up.
    My state senator, Senator David Vitter, was more of a TEXAN than Cornyn. Maybe our good neighbors to the west could make him an honorary Texan and appoint him to be Texas’ honorary US Senator.
    We here on this blogpost expect McShame to be shameless but it is somewhat unexpected to come from a Texan. Has anyone checked to see if Cornyn was born in Texas.

    • BHliberty

      Yes, I heard the interview as well and the Texas Senator sounded like a wounded puppy dog! The great state of Texas can do better than that! But additionally, I think the Senator has become so entrenched into the DC culture that he’s just become jaded! Which is why he should be primaried!

  • StrangernFiction

    McCain is no useful idiot. He’s a DIABLO.

  • Alborn

    John McShame has outlived the war hero mantra. He is no hero of any kind. The damage that he has done to this country while in the Senate and his entitlement feeling that he had to be the R candidate in 2008 when everyone knew he could not win against Oliar. He is a disgrace to the uniform and the oath that he once took to defend this country. Do not refer to him as a hero because he is not.

  • Swamp Fox

    I would like to have a word or two with hero Johnny or anyone else for that matter that backs this scam.

    I have no family, own a business, carry my own private policy with Anthem BC/BS and pay a few dollars shy of $1200 a month for it. Obviously, I have a health issue.

    Out of curiousity I called the Kentucky Healthcare Connection today ( http://kynect.ky.gov/) to ask them what I would be looking at in regards to coverage and rates under the new health care act. I told them about my pre-existing condition and was told, “Do not let go of your current policy because as of right now you would be declined under all the current offerings they are starting off with.”

    When I inquired as to how this could be I was told, “Until other more comprehensive packages are developed by the carriers in the future, do not let your current coverage lapse as you will be uninsurable with any company in the private market. For now, Anthem is stuck with you.”

    I can not imagine what my rates will jump to when my January policy anniversary rolls around in a few months. Everyone who wanted this mess is certainly going to learn a few lessons about the reality of things. Freaking morons. Four years ago my same policy was costing me $701 a month. So… anyway… hey McCain, stick your righteousness up your @$$! Freaking traitor. The same for you Mitch!

    Not that I would ever give up my personal policy, this is simply a fine example of things to come for those with serious health problems.

  • sjmom

    McCain is a selfish man who only cares about himself and has to endear himself to the MSM and anyone aligned with them. There’s no fool like an old fool and McCain is now the epitome of the old fool.

  • JesseMace

    mc idiot overlooks the fact that our constitution was written so as not to be governed by simple majorities. mc idiot should be doing his job and defending the constitution from tyranny or mob rule

  • Scott Hanson

    Benedict Arnold was a real war hero before he switched sides and got really famous. John McCain hasn’t helped his country in decades.

  • colliemum

    The Great One is spot on, as always, and I’m glad he’s able to provide a counter to the MSM.
    May I also suggest that the meme “McCain is a great war hero” be retired now.
    There have been other wars now, and I suggest those veterans from the Gulf wars and from Afghanistan are at least as great heros as McCain.
    IIRC, isn’t there at least one vet sitting in the House?

      I agree, but it goes way beyond Palin. The GOP’s silence on McCain speaks volumes. That alone is reason to leave the GOP. Why would a conservative want to be part of a party that accepts the likes of McCain is beyond me.

    McShame is not a hero. He crashed jets, suspected of destroying a ship, and hit power lines in Spain. He is now determined to destroy what is left of our Constitution.
    I wish he was a busboy at the Hanoi Hilton.

      would love to know what secrets he gave them. he’s no hero – he’s a traitor.

    Thanks MR Levin for your hard work.
    In you read this just so you know, this morning Reid And McCain both have been called an scolded for their despicable verbal abuses of fellow senators and the American people. “End of message”

    They both should be hauled off in cuffs and incarcerated for their abuse of power and for aiding and abetting terrorist, of course for that to happen, first E. Holder would need to be carried away.

  • ApplePie101

    I disagree with Mark on this one. McCain is a useless idiot.

  • wdobni

    maybe obamacare will be what it takes to rejuvenate and revivify the republicans with entirely new blood from a new generation of energetic young patriots

    McLame has already revealed his hostility to the Constitution, and his affinity for propping up the progressive democrats agenda of subverting the Constitution and our rights.

    McLame was praised for his cooperation w/the radical Russ Feingold in passing campaign finance reform. Too bad the act of cooperation was judged to be of more value than allegiance to the Constitution. The finance reform act absolutely trampled our freedom of speech, actually forbidding certain groups to be involved in political speech.

    I’m sick of the RINO’s who strut around the senate, cooperate with the marxist democrats and work together to subvert our rights and rob us of our money via forced taxation.

  • DocBarry1

    M Levin is so right – what is so disappointing and eye opening – McCain’s words and deeds leading up to 2008 and before he sold out when he stopped his campaign to OK the Bailout – basically are being viewed as what he needed to do to get the Repub nomination – but they were fake and lies – what he is doing now is contrary to what he promised his voters to get reelected and he needs to resign – he is an Obama tool and he is becoming a shell of his previous self

    Lets keep our composure in this time of contention. I agree wholeheartly that we need new representatives that represent the values of americas people but to degraded them and make belitteling verbal jabs only brings us down to these peoples level. The best we can hope for is convincing the moderate americans that we stand for a better america. Keep up the fight i know i will.

      “Lets keep our composure in this time of contention” Agreed… here comes the BUT…

    McCain, Graham, McConnell, Cornyn, etal. have been more actively involved in self-aggrandizing political play than in defending The People’s interest.
    The RINOS in Congress therefore, are beneath contempt and most deserving of the derision that they now suffer. McCain’s 2010 leverage of the Military Spending Bill vs. Obamacare and his condemnation of similar tactics 3 years later vividly illustrate McCain’s (and his fellow traveler’s) moral bankruptcy.

  • Houstongirl

    John McCain may have been a great “war hero,” but he is not a decent American. He was elected to fight for his constituents. Instead, he sells them down the river along with the rest of Americans who counted on him to stand strong. A hero stands strong. McCain does not know how to do that. It is more important to him to be a Senator than it is for him to stand up against tyranny. Pathetic.

    • Twoiron

      Amen, HG. I recall his 2010 re-election campaign ad that had him walking along the border (supposedly) saying “We need to build the damn fence!”

      He is a progressive Republican which translates to a socialist in a business suit.

      I loathe the man, military record aside. For the damage he has done as US Senator, America would be better off if he’d have spent 40 years in the Hanoi Hilton…

      • Houstongirl

        Instead the Senator seems intent on putting Conservative Americans there.
