It never, ever fucking stops:
Is the old John McCain back?
The fiery, independent version of the Republican senator from Arizona took to the floor of the Senate Wednesday morning. Demanding “straight talk,” Mr. McCain accused conservatives of abandoning reason by opposing the House Republican leader’s plan to resolve the debt crisis.
No matter what happens, any bill that is passed, Reid’s, Boehner’s, whoever, we are getting an austerity packed, conservative shit sandwich. Period. The choices on the table are armageddon, right wing bullshit from Reid, really right-wing bullshit from Boehner. Yet here is Michael Shear, who should know better, pushing the notion that independent mavericky centrist John McCain is somehow the portrait of moderation for yelling down the crazies who want the country to burn.
The “old John McCain.” Just shoot me. Make the pain stop.
How did we get such a horrible media?
But on Wednesday morning, it looked like the maverick had returned.
Tire swings and barbecue for everyone. Fuck it.
