McCain VS Paul

OMG! Did you hear what happened on last night’s episode of Gossip Girl? Because I can grantee that it was not as nearly as juicy as what went on between the soon to be late Senator John Mcain and Senator Rand Paul. In case you missed some rather harsh words were exchanged between the two senators, earlier this week. 

During a Senate meeting to ratify a treaty that would allow the small nation of Montenegro to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The two Republican senators found themselves once again on the opposite sides of the debate.  Their argument would soon get out of hand. 

McCain: “If they object, they are now carrying out the desires and ambitions of Vladimir Putin, and I do not say that lightly.”

After Rand Paul had given his side of the argument, he abruptly left the chambers which sparked more harsh words for Mccain. 


Mccain: “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.”


“So I repeat again, the senator from Kentucky is now working for Vladimir Putin.”

Oh damn! John Mccain just accused one of his colleagues to be working with V. Putin. I am beginning to think that this is just the new insult that the politicians are going to start using whenever they disagree on something. 

“Senator Young R-IN does not support my resolution to officially make ever Tuesday a Taco Tuesday he must be working for Putin.”

Anyways, for all you Rand Paul fans, don’t worry because he got the last laugh. On MSNBC’s show Morning Joe he was asked to react to McCain comments. 

Paul: I think he (McCain) makes a really strong case……. for term limits. I think he is past his prime. He has gotten a little bit unhinged.“ 

Rand Paul just roasted John McCain like a fat kid making an S'mores. 

As funny as this exchange is it once again highlights the idiocracy that is going on in Washington. I would like to add the Rand Paul is one of the only politicians that I can stand. But from what I have read he did walk out of the chambers without in justification. And, although you may not think this is a problem it does break Senate proceeding that the Senate has been following since the ratification of the constitution.  

It is also incredibly nerve-racking that an experienced Senator like John McCain, a man who almost became president, is so willing to call other senators traders.
