John McCain the Hypocrite

Is the Senatorial decorum that [mc_name name=’Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’M000303′ ] insists should be the rule?

Ted in Congress

April 21, 2015: “On Sunday, Cruz told a gathering in Litchfield, New Hampshire, that he had spoken with McCain on the issue of “denying our soldiers the ability to exercise their Second Amendment rights.”

“When asked, McCain said the comments came as a “complete surprise” and suggested that he may have communicated his mission through “some medium I’m not familiar with.”

“Maybe it was through, you know, hand telegraph. Maybe it was sign language,” McCain said.

([mc_name name=’Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’C001098′ ] admitted that he misspoke, that his conversations of a few months earlier had been with the previous chairman, not McCain, who had just ascended to the chairmanship.)

What this shows is that [mc_name name=’Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’M000303′ ] never lets an opportunity go by to denigrate, belittle or ostracize anyone who doesn’t believe in his lukewarm vision of conservatism. I, for one, am ready for someone who is consistent, honest and scholarly, knows what the truth is, seeks justice and supports the Constitution. That shouldn’t be a tall order to fill, but it is.
