McCain: Conservative Immigration Stance Driven by “Zealots” and “Kooks”

I’m sorry he is dying. And he is a great American hero. But Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., is not a conservative and, from his stance on immigration to his decision to sink the Obamacare repeal effort with his “thumbs down” vote last year, has done damage to the conservative cause over the years. Including by… Continue Reading

McCain Offers Psychotherapy to Hillary

Sen. John McCain, who shares with Hillary Clinton membership in that exclusive club of losers of presidential elections, is counseling Hillary to accept the tragic death of her political career and move on.

Carney Ripped Apart by McCain

Starting his gig as a CNN commentator, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney Wednesday ran up against something he’s not used to – an aggressive challenge, free of the protocols of a White House briefing, in which a knowledgable adversary tolerates none of his spin.

WH Defends Witless Ambassador Pick

The White House is standing by George Tsunis, President Obama’s pick for ambassador to Norway, despite a side-splitting confirmation hearing performance in which he averred that Norway has a president, which it doesn’t, and that the Norwegian government had condemned a Party with which it has formed a coalition. “I can tell you that this… Continue Reading
