Maybe Someone Can Explain to Me How Lindsay Graham and John McCain can be taken Seriously

Mind blowingly unbelieeeeeevable

Ugh. Lindsey Graham Slams Rand Paul for Holding “Ridiculous” Filibuster 


John McCain and Lindsey Graham Declare War on Rand Paul

The anti-Rand Pauls, Sen. John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, took to the Senate floor this morning to defend killing American citizens at presidential discretion. Graham is doing so live on C-SPAN2 right now, saying that everything you do is a danger to America no matter who or where you are, as long as the U.S. government has decided you have “joined al-Queda,” whatever the hell that means.
Earlier John McCain said, as Business Insider reported:
“Calm down, Senator,” McCain said, in an admonition to Paul. “The U.S. government cannot randomly target U.S. citizens.” 
McCain argued that Paul’s warning that the Obama could target would U.S. citizens in “cafes” on American soil, and his related “Jane Fonda” analogy, bring the debate into the “realm of the ridiculous.” 
“If Mr. Paul wants to be taken seriously he needs to do more than pull political stunts that fire up impressionable libertarian kids,” he said. “I don’t think what happened yesterday is helpful to the American people.” 
The Republican Party is at war, folks, and let’s hope Rand Paul and his troops win.
UPDATE: Sen. McCain was apparently quoting a crummy Wall Street Journal op-ed in the portion quoted above about “libertarian kids.”

Graham, McCain blast Paul filibuster

Sen. Rand Paul’s filibuster didn’t thrill all of his colleagues.
Almost exactly 24 hours after Mr. Paul began his information-seeking filibuster against John O. Brennan, Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham took to the Senate floor to denounce his demands and say he was doing a “disservice” to the debate on drones.

“The country needs more senators who care about liberty, but if Mr. Paul wants to be taken seriously he needs to do more than pull political stunts that fire up impressionable libertarian kids in their college dorms. He needs to know what he’s talking about,” said Mr. McCain, Republicans’ presidential nominee in 2008 — who topped Mr. Paul’s father, former Rep. Ron Paul, in that year’s primary.
And where Democrats praised Mr. Paul for using Senate rules properly to launch a filibuster, Mr. McCain said it was an abuse of rules that could hurt the GOP in the long run.
No wonder Mr. Obama won in 2008.
Rand Paul CORRECTLY asked some VERY hard questions in a manner which left no room for anyone to ignore them.
We all deserve the answers, and we all deserve the debate ON the answers. By opposing THIS OPPORTUNITY to drive the debate on the Bill of FUCKING RIGHTS, Mr. McCain and Mr. Graham have embarrassed themselves, their party and the Senate, and certainly makes clear they are not very serious.
Perhaps a pair of grand-standers.

The more I see and hear of him the more I like Rand Paul. He and Rubio and Jindal the hope of the Republican Party. Or a new and viable 3rd party if need be.

Old fucks like McCain and Graham need to be put out to pasture. They are the reason support for the GOP is down. Too much compromising and too long in their positions.

And fuck that fat bastard from New Jersey. He's no better than the others.
