John McCain Gets Punked Again By 'Bi-Partisanship'

Ahhh, dear old Senator Mccain. How charming that someone of his age still believes in fairy tales:

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is seeking bipartisan support to block Senate Democrats from using special parliamentary tactics to pass healthcare reform.{...}

He implored centrist Democrats to think about the consequences. He even invoked President Barack Obama’s own words to make his case.

And McCain reminded Democrats that he was a member of the bipartisan Gang of 14, which stopped Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) from using the so-called nuclear option in 2005.

It's time for a similar gang, he said. So far, he’s had no takers.

“Back a few years ago when the Republican side was in the majority and there was a movement toward the ‘nuclear option’ … I stood up as a member of the majority and said we should not erode the 60-vote majority rule that has prevailed here in the Senate for many years,” McCain said Thursday evening.

Now, back when Senator McCain and his sidekick Lindsay Graham were creating this compromise, a number of us said that the Democrats would never honor it if the shoe were on the other foot, and that they were just taking advantage of McCain's gullibility to block a number of highly qualified judges and presidential appointees .

Guess what? We were right.

I would have thought that McCain's life experiences would have taught him that you can never deal honestly or honorably with dishonest and dishonorable people.


please helps me write more gooder!
