Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Draining the swamp

One stinking, slimy rat at a time.

What Flake said on the Senate floor, a screed castigating Donald Trump and moaning about the coarseness of our discourse despite being flogged as “historic” by the usual suspects in the Democrat/JournoList mob, was as unremarkable as his career. Much of it may have contained some truth, but then again I’m sure Harvey Weinstein gave a hell of a speech about respect for women at some point. The messenger can certainly pollute the message, and Flake’s minuscule approval rating has nothing to do with Donald Trump — it has a lot more to do with a familiar pattern of campaigning as a principled conservative while governing as something else. People will only put up with being treated as marks for so long, and then they become weary of the exercise.

And no, you don’t get to call yourself a “libertarian” when you vote to continue the Export/Import Bank and give a “yea” to the Cromnibus bill.

This continuing Establishment perfidy is why Trump is in office, after all — something Corker, another Senate dinosaur ripe for the asteroid strike, should take heed of. Corker, who became persona non grata when despite warnings from nearly every quarter within his own party he shepherded the Obama Iran deal to legitimacy, simply will not shut up about Trump and his fitness to hold the office in which he sits. This as Corker, like Flake, has thrown in the electoral towel.

Hey, it’s a start.
