John McCain, Filibuster-Buster

John McCain, Filibuster-Buster

| January 13, 2009 | 4 Replies

Reed Galen makes a very good case that Barack Obama has done some industrial-strength sucking up to John McCain in the hopes that McCain will return the favor and help bust any potential Republican filibuster. I find the theory very credible. McCain is a sucker for ego-stroking moves, especially ones that play to his power […]

You know, I’d accept a Democratic super majority in the Senate for the next two years if it meant getting John McCain out of there forever. I’m serious. If he quit right now and a patchwork monster made out of the putrescent remains of Karl Marx, John Milton Keynes, Jimmy Carter, and Woodrow Wilson took […]

Vicky Iseman became a household name when the New York Times printed a thinly-sourced front page piece that walked right up to the edge of accusing her of having an affair with John McCain. Now she’s going for the jugular. Washington lobbyist Vicki L. Iseman has filed a $27 million defamation lawsuit against The New […]

I don’t think enough harsh polemics can be written about John McCain, his miserable campaign, nor the number of shivs he’s stuck in the back of Sarah Palin since Election Day. Pam Meister has written another one I recommend to you, not only because it is the sort of thing that would get a grumbled […]

I’m not saying that John McCain should have unconditionally endorsed Sarah Palin for 2012 on George Snuffleupagus’ show today, but he could have at least thrown her a bone for the hard work she did for him. Palin did his campaign a lot of good, energized a conservative base that was unquestionably hostile to his […]

Can we finally put the Obama Birth Certificate thing to rest now? The Supreme Court has turned down an emergency appeal from a New Jersey man who says President-elect Barack Obama is ineligible to be president because he was a British subject at birth. The court did not comment on its order Monday rejecting the […]

Now that the election’s over, we’re getting to see the most petty and shameful behavior from the hacks who helped run John McCain’s campaign into the side of a mountain. Several pretty high-ranking staffers, too cowardly to put their names behind their criticisms, have concocted all manner of ridiculous stories about Sarah Palin in order […]

Jonah Goldberg about sums it up for me (except for one small point). Look, I expect to be one of the most severe critics of the Obama administration and the Democrats generally in the years ahead (though I sincerely hope I won’t find that necessary). But Obama ran a brilliant race and he should be […]

Why is Professional Eeyore Mark Salter so happy? You know it’s a big day on the McCain campaign when Mark Salter is smiling. The senior aide to John McCain, known for his gruff demeanor, was practically giddy this morning on the campaign plane. He was cracking jokes with reporters and describing an optimistic atmosphere surrounding […]
