so.. i am not a mccain fan… one of the things that i hated recently by mccain was the gang of 14.

this was part of the confirmation debacle of supreme court justice sam alito.  when the then republican majority leader frist said that he would invoke the nuclear option to kill the filibuster options available by the minority specific to judicial nomination… john mccain lead a group of seven replublicans and seven democrats that at that last minute… the 11th hour… t – minus 10 seconds…

the replublicans said they would not support the nuclear option… and the democrats said they would not block 3 judicial nominations made by president bush… and then pinky promised not to filibuster any more nominations… except under extreme conditions/crcumstances … really???

the republicans could have killed the stupid and petty filibuster being used by the democrats for judicial nominations for good… and those rules would have applied to the replublicans once and if they were ever in the minority

that is one of the reasons that conservatives dislike john mccain… because in his rogueness and maverick status and liberal media darling … he weakened the party and lead to a backlash of conservatives not voting for those that took part in the gang of 14 and eventually leading to the loss of the house and the senate…

we appreciate bucking convention and bi-partizenship… but mccain always gives and never gets anything of worth in return…
