They’re wrapping it up now. I just turned it on but Business Insider has a blurb on what I missed:
“Calm down, Senator,” McCain said, in an admonition to Paul. “The U.S. government cannot randomly target U.S. citizens.”
McCain argued that Paul’s warning that the Obama administration could target U.S. citizens in “cafes” on American soil, and his related “Jane Fonda” analogy, bring the debate into the “realm of the ridiculous.”
“If Mr. Paul wants to be taken seriously he needs to do more than pull political stuntes [sic] tha[t] fire up impressionable libertarian kids,” he said. “I don’t think what happened yesterday is helpful to the American people.”
McCain just said a conversation shouldn’t be talking about “drones killing Jane Fonda and in cafes.” Graham said the chance of you being killed by a drone for engaging in harmless political activity “is zero.” He said, “I will do everything in my power to protect this president, who I disagree with a lot, and future presidents from having an ill-informed Congress” take away his constitutional powers. McCain, descending into self-parody, then congratulated Graham for using his best manners during their dinner last night (I wish I were making that up).
I’ll post video as soon as it’s found.
UPDATE: Here’s video of McCain speaking. He spends about half his time reading the Wall Street Journal’s critical editorial from earlier this morning. His patented harrumphing begins around 4:30:
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
