Harshing your mellow since 9/01

He’s done us another favor

Another salutary effect of Trump’s victory.

Publicly, John McCain insists Donald Trump will have a negligible effect on his campaign for reelection. But behind closed doors at a fundraiser in Arizona last month, the Republican senator and two-time presidential hopeful offered a far more dire assessment to his supporters.

“If Donald Trump is at the top of the ticket, here in Arizona, with over 30 percent of the vote being the Hispanic vote, no doubt that this may be the race of my life,” McCain said, according to a recording of the event obtained by POLITICO.

Good. Whatever it takes to pry you, and as many others like you as possible, off the government teat at long last. I refer you to Cromwell again:

It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place,

which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice.

Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation. You were deputed here by the people to get grievances redressed, are yourselves become the greatest grievance.

Your country therefore calls upon me to cleanse this Augean stable, by putting a final period to your iniquitous proceedings in this House; and which by God’s help, and the strength he has given me, I am now come to do.

I command ye therefore, upon the peril of your lives, to depart immediately out of this place.

Go, get you out! Make haste! Ye venal slaves be gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors.

In the name of God, go!

Never has that speech been more relevant.

  1. Every time I read about McCain and his tough, upcoming election, EVERY TIME, they skip Kelli Ward’s primary challenge. She just clobbered him in a Straw poll vote, 75%-11%!

    Her and Nehlan, the guy challenging Ryan, have been getting a few bucks from me. Beating Ryan and McCain in the primaries would send an unmistakable message to the GOPe. I believe contrary to the crap the left dominated media is feeding, Trump will cream Hillary and will have some yuge coat tails. So lets get some solid folks in the general to join Mike Lee and Jordan.
