    Don't think it makes the poster petty, rather this says more about McCain's mental ability. It could be excused on account of McCain's advancing age or perhaps this is just another revelation of the true McCain.

    McCain at one time was the Tiger Woods of politics. A hero above all the rest of the politicians.
    But then like Tiger the image began to slide off.
    During Kerry's running McCain couldn't make up his mind if he was a Rep or Dem if there was a chance he could be on the ticket.
    Then during his own campaign he showed more of this real self doing the ridiculous ploy of suspending his campaign to go to D.C. so that he could save the nation with the bailout. This ploy was only topped by the ill advised theatrics of picking Palin and Joe the Plumber as running mates.
    Tiger and McCain at one time both had my respect. Perhaps their problem could be stemmed to both marrying blondes.

    Franken may have been a dick, but at least he showed he has some balls. That is sorely lacking in the Democrat party.

    Damn straight. If Republicans are so intent on voting against anything and everything the Dems put forth just to spite them (and, as a result, ignorantly spiting themselves ), then who needs them? What purpose are they actually serving other than to hinder the business of our government? Who needs that crap?

    Frankly, I'd like to see a lot more of this kind of "No, you can kindly now **** off. We're not going to tolerate any more of your hypocritical obstructionist antics."

    Good God, elected representatives voting based on their views and the views of their constituents? Who needs that crap?!?

    As usual Glinda you don't report all of the facts. The Sen. in question had already been given an extra 30 seconds before asking for another 30 seconds but hey nothing like the truth stopping you from making a Hack post now is it.

    I would prefer them to have balls when it matters, not have balls by being a dick over nothing.

    Okay, so they've all acted like dicks from time to time. We get it. The left of course more than the right.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Only by the right. The rest of us thought it was pretty darned funny.

    Hey if I had a nickel for every time the word dick was used in this thread I could by a Big Mac.
