The maverick rides again - and Congress needs him

Jul 24, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The News Tribune

The Senate was out of session recently, but John McCain was on Capitol Hill, joking, as he often does, about "trying to do the Lord's work here in the city of Satan."

So now a bought and paid for politician is a maverick? That is even funnier than the joke about how Obama is an honest man of the people or that Americans support amnesty for millions of ant-American criminals. The talking heads must think the average American is as stupid as they are.

It's a bit sad when the best guy you've got in Congress - the most practical, intelligent, good-humored (!) and responsible - is John McCain.

But then the GOP is a sad, sad excuse for a party nowadays. I shudder to think where we'd be without some cooperation, influence, and arm-twisting by McCain.

ALL politicians are "bought and paid for," that's a given. What are they doing to EARN their pay is the only meaningful question.

Although probably not to anyone who thinks that hard-working immigrants are "anti-American criminals." Or did you really mean "ant-American?" That makes just about as much sense...:)

don't overrate the progressives. the cities are so beautiful. Anyway McCain is a buffoon. A dangerous one. He has his head so far up zionist Joe Lieberman's azz that it has been declared kosher. We are on 6 years of Repub politicians being served the riot act from their voters and they still do what they want or perhaps ordered to by their elitist masters.

Yeah, so we can get on with arming the Syrian Rebels [al Queda], and nuking Iran. Just what we need, McCain unchained.

Your xenophobic distinction makes no sense. "Pro illegal?" Hysterical.

Sorry, immigrants are immigrants. They have immigrated into this country, that much is indisputable.

If they've done so illegally, we can deport them all...deport some...accept some as candidates for citizenship...or accept all of them.

We're not going to deport them all or accept them all, so you see the two remaining choices. I'm certainly not supporting illegal immigration, but McCain and others see that we can't deport 11-20 million people. It's just not happening.

So try reality, that's all I'm suggesting.

No, McCain is not a teabagger. But he is old and senile and looking to start more wars in Sandland. We don't need anymore Eye-Racks and Clusterfuckistans.

No, we don't, but I don't see how McCain's much worse than Obama on that score.

Most Tea party members I know think the USA should stay as far from Syria and the mess in Egypt as possible. Not our fight, not our problem.

McCain said there are now 15 Wacko Birds isolationist in the Senate. I find that good news as just a few years ago it was just Ron Paul in the house and zero in the Senate.. Lets hope the old interventionist like McCain keep going away in the GOP and are replaced by more so called Wacko Birds who oppose overseas Wars.

I'm sure that's true. IMO the Tea Party is more of a domestic threat than a foreign-policy one.

McCain served his country in Viet Nam and was captures, tortured and held prisoner for years. Most right wingers on here have never served anywhere. Just ask draft dodger mittwit romney!

What is really sad is that anybody would actually consider John McCain as practical, intelligent, good-humored or responsible. It is even sadder that people think it is o.k. for our leaders to be bought and paid for to make decisions and laws based on who pays the most. No wonder a politician from the most corrupt party in the most corrupt state can surround themselves with “friends and advisers” that make Al Capone look like a choir boy and become president.
I do agree that the GOP is a sad excuse for a party but the Democratic Party is even worse.
