I have some grudging respect for the last act of drama queen John McCain. He could have just stayed in Arizona and killed the decaf skinny latte version of death to thousands, but instead he left everyone in suspense until the last possible minute. His performance was a solid 100% on the tomatometer – thumbs up, four stars, etc. I can’t wait for Cillizza’s spicy hot take. Extra bonus points to McCain for making sure idiots like Heller will be eating their repeal vote shit sandwich from now until election day.
In other news, those fucking idiots at Interior who thought they would scare Lisa Murkowski just realized that she is the chair of an important committee that can block appointments. Whoops!
Meanwhile, Dan Savage is trying to get some traction for “Bannoning” as the act of trying to suck one’s own cock. I prefer “The Bannon Maneuver” because it sounds more classy. I would also propose that the act of calling up a reporter to talk on the record while coked out of one’s mind be called “The Scaramooch Fandango”.
