…you’re going to be willing to do a lot of crazy things to keep that secret.
John McCain did a whole lot of crazy yesterday:
The fireworks came as McCain spoke in support of a Senate unanimous consent request in support of Montenegro’s bid to join NATO. The libertarian-leaning Paul, who has often advocated for a less interventionist foreign policy, opposes the resolution.“You are achieving the objectives of Vladimir Putin…trying to dismember this small country which has already been the subject of an attempted coup,” McCain said, in an apparent reference to Paul.McCain then asked that the resolution be passed unanimously, prompting an objection from Paul who then exited the room. McCain then reiterated his accusation.“I note the senator from Kentucky leaving the floor without justification or any rationale for the action he has just taken. That is really remarkable — that a senator blocking a treaty that is supported by the overwhelming number, perhaps 98 at least of his colleagues, would come to the floor and object and walk away…The only conclusion you can draw when he walks away is he has no argument to be made.He has no justification for his objection to having a small nation be part of NATO that is under assault from the Russians. So, I repeat again, the senator from Kentucky is now working for Vladimir Putin.”
Yes, that twisted old fruit actually said that.
Rand Paul’s response today was epic:
