John McCain, you are a twit.

In Current Events, Politics on March 11, 2013 at 2:52 pm

Following the epic 13 hour Rand Paul filibuster last Wednesday, the liberal Republicans have been out in full force. Both John McCain and Lindsey Graham have thoroughly expressed their distaste of the Tea Party before but couldn’t help making it known again. Frankly, I’m a little surprised that we haven’t heard from Orrin Hatch as well in all this.

It is possible, I suppose, to imagine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the Constitution and applicable laws of the United States for the President to authorize the military to use lethal force within the United States. … Were such an emergency to arise, I would examine the particular facts and circumstances before advising the President on the scope of his authority.”

Translation: We are claiming it’s unlikely in hopes that you leave us alone, because we haven’t done it yet but we might. Read the rest of this entry »
