For those that haven’t turned on the TV or haven’t looked at the news websites (which around here means exactly no one since Darth and I are aware of how up-to-date all 3 of you are on current events)….Hitlary was confirmed as Slutkitary of State-less earlier today by a 94-2 vote. After reading this article though, it seems there are still some unanswered questions.
While there is some slightly minor redeeming value that Cornyn was holding up the proceedings…..he was NOT one of the two to vote against the confirmation. That was left to Republican senators Jim DeMint of SC and David Vitter of LA, as confirmed by RollCall in this article……my question is — who were the senators that abstained or were not present to vote (aside from Herr Chappaquiddick)?
Another thing that the RollCall article mentioned, and that I found VERY interesting was this:
In a strongly worded floor speech, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), the 2008 GOP presidential nominee, demanded support for Clinton’s installment. Soon after his remarks, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said he “enthusiastically” supported her.
Rush nailed it pretty well when he said this on today’s show:
… But I have learned from this, I have learned from the past 24 hours, Mr. Snerdley, I understand what it’s all about now. I am the Last Man Standing, ladies and gentlemen, with all of you, too, but I’m talking about it in terms of national figure. There’s nobody in the Republican Party, there is no elected Republican Party leadership. I’m it. I am the one resisting the tug of popular sentiment. The whole country — well, not the whole country, but a good portion of the whole country has checked their brains at the door. They have just gotten caught up in this wave of popular sentiment. Newt Gingrich is caught up in it, Tom Coburn is caught up in it, the entire Republican Party, except maybe John Cornyn and Jeff Sessions, are caught up in it. Kay Bailey Hutchison running for Texas in 2010, she’s not caught up in it, but most of the conservative media totally caught up in the tug of popular sentiment.
Okay, so there’s gonna be some argument about that last part…..but for the most part he’s right.
Hope y’all are stockpiling (or have been for some time now), cause it’s gonna get ugly fast folks.
