Moronic: Sen. McCain blasts Sen. Paul’s filibuster as ‘political stunt,’ ‘ridiculous’

Sen. Lindsey Graham has written off yesterday’s epic filibuster as “ridiculous,” but why should he have the monopoly on GOP stupidity? His toolish teammate John McCain got in on the action, distorting Paul’s remarks and helping to play defense for Eric Holder and the Obama Administration:

McCain calls Rand Paul’s concern “totally unfounded”

“If Paul wants to be taken seriously heneeds to do more than pull political stunts than fire up impressionablelibertarian kids” -McCain

RT @mikeviqueira: McCain calling Paul’s filibuster “a political stunt” to fire up libertarian kids in college….wow! This on Senate floor

— Emily Zanotti (@emzanotti) March 7, 2013

McCain: “I don’t that what happened yesterday is helpful to the American people” #standwithrand

— Charlie Spiering (@charliespiering) March 7, 2013

McCain: Paul did ‘a disservice to a lot of Americans by making them believe that somehow they’re in danger from their gov’t. They’re not.’

— Joel Gehrke (@Joelmentum) March 7, 2013

He just. Doesn’t. Get it. Sen. Paul has earned the much respect of so many conservatives not necessarily because of his particular feelings on drone strikes, but because of his passionate defense of limited government and the fact that he brought the Constitution to the forefront of the debate.

More McCain: To allege that the US would drop a drone hellfire missile on Jane Fonda…brings the conversation to realm of the ridiculous

— Jeremy Herb (@JHerbTheHill) March 7, 2013

McCain, with Graham seated behind him on floor, says Paul brought conversation “to the realm of the ridiculous.”

Sen. McCain may think those things are “ridiculous,” but conservatives have some choice words for him:

If it’s so damned false, @senjohnmccain, let the administration SAY they won’t kill US citizens on us soil without due process!

‘Maverick’ McCain appears to be getting out-mavericked by @senrandpaul

— Charlie Spiering (@charliespiering) March 7, 2013

So, yea, I’ll take Rand Paul’s side over McCain’s.

— Stephen Gutowski (@collegepolitico) March 7, 2013

If @senjohnmccain thinks the accusations are false then he should have no problem in joining Paul’s request that the WH answer inquiries.

Just recall, McCain is the moderate, bipartisan centrist. Rand Paul is the Tea Party “extremist.”

— Timothy P Carney (@TPCarney) March 7, 2013

McCain is doing an excellent job rebutting positions Rand Paul didn’t take.

— John Ekdahl, Jr. (@JohnEkdahl) March 7, 2013

McCain actually just said @senrandpaul “needs 2 know what he’s talking about”. So we don’t have a right to have a SIMPLE question answered?

— Melissia (A) (@ProudoftheUSA) March 7, 2013

You know it’s not an election year for John McCain when he sides with Eric Holder against Rand Paul. #maverick

— Razor (@hale_razor) March 7, 2013

Hi @senjohnmccain , were u aware that gov’t agencies classified the military authorized Gadsen Flag as “suspicious?” constitution.org/abus/le/miac-s…

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) March 7, 2013

Old Man McCain condescendingly railing about those gosh darn libertarian college kids on the Senate floor. Who needs ‘em! #WinningTheFuture

— Corie Whalen (@CorieWhalen) March 7, 2013

Shut up @senjohnmccain! Your lack of concern 4 r constitutional rights is disturbing coming from a former POW. #StandWithRand

— Kira Ayn Davis (@kiradavis422) March 7, 2013

McCain has been tougher on Rand Paul in the last 20 minutes than he was on Obama during the whole campaign.

— DrewM (@DrewMTips) March 7, 2013

Well yes, but then again, it’d be awful uncouth of McCain to criticize Obama after that lovely dinner they had last night:

In: Filibusters.Out: Mavericky dinners with Obama.

— Teri Peters (@hipEchik) March 7, 2013

Yes, McCain, highlight your dinner with Obama. Brilliant . #StandWithRand

— Gary Eaton (@garysteveneaton) March 7, 2013

The shit McCain thinks is important is insane.Good dinner guest> bill of rights.

— Amy (@CAAmyO) March 7, 2013

McCain ends his speech complimentingSen Graham on his “behavior” last night at dinner. HAR HAR#TCOT #filibuster #StandWithRand

— FTR Radio (@FTR__Radio) March 7, 2013

As in, reeealy nice RT @emzanotti: Well, good to know that Sen. Lindsey Graham was really nice at that dinner with Obama. #standwithrand

Meanwhile, we’ve lost our appetites.

McCain is doing what he always does best. Snatching victory from Republicans. . .

— Charlie Spiering (@charliespiering) March 7, 2013

Graham and McCain are why more people aren’t Republicans. They are killing the party. Pathetic.

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) March 7, 2013

McCain and Graham see the writing on the wall and are infuriated that in one night they were shoved aside for the new guard.

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) March 7, 2013

McCain-style conservatism: Standing athwart the Constitution, yelling stop.

— Jim Antle (@jimantle) March 7, 2013

Tired of being disappointed with @senjohnmccain .

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) March 7, 2013

Aren’t we all?
