Mario Piperni on Mindless Morons

McCain Does a Little GOP Ass-Kicking

John McCain has finally had enough of his Republican teabagging cohorts, Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.

In the latest expression of Republican frustration with conservative GOP colleagues, Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Susan Collins (R-ME) excoriated Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rand Paul (R-KY) for persistently refusing to initiate House-Senate budget negotiations.

Their comments on the Senate floor Tuesday reflect a growing Republican schism over how to approach the tax and spending fights that have hamstrung Congress for years and dragged its approval ratings to historic lows.

“For four years, four years, we complained about the fact that the majority leader … would refuse to bring a budget to the floor of the United States Senate,” McCain said. “What [do] we on my side of the aisle keep doing? We don’t want a budget unless — unless — we put requirements on the conferees that are absolutely out of line and unprecedented.”

Thanks for the effort, John…but it won’t help a damn. Republicans are in self-destruct mode and nothing is going to stop the ticker from setting off the implosion. When a couple of clowns like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are seriously considered by conservatives as contenders for the presidency in 2016, there’s not much more to say about the sad state of the Republican party.
