John McCain Takes on Code Pink

By on 1.29.15 | 12:39PM

Since it's rare to feel proud of the work John McCain does in Congress, it's probably worth keeping this little nugget somewhere deep in your files, so that you can pull it out and remember that somewhere, deep down inside that slowly-melting Maverick, there's still a passionate heart that burns with an unquenchable desire to smack a hippie back into the last century where she belongs.

This morning, John McCain's inner beast reared it's ugly head at Code Pink's.

Masterful. Bravo.

Republican Martha McSally: An Arizona Classic

By on 6.10.14 | 2:32PM

Republican Martha McSally is a retired colonel—the first woman to fly in combat for the Air Force—and a classic Arizonan running as a moderate in the state's Second Congressional District.

McSally can also be seen running under the hot sun and through the cactus and fearsome cat-claw of the Arizona desert in her campaign ad. She impressed Politico with her forceful personality and reticence about issues:

“When I have a staff and I’m in Congress, I’m going to do everything I can to actually help form the issues in front of us instead of having to answer, ‘Are you going to run on this? Are you going to run on that?’” she said.

Hating free speech is a McCain family tradition

By on 10.5.11 | 10:28AM

Meghan McCain, daughter of Sen. John McCain, actually hired a lawyer to send a "cease and desist letter" to a blogger who had written (fairly obvious) parodies of her. And lo, this is the response she elicited from Christopher Scott Badeaux, an attorney representing the satirist (click through and read every word. It is the letter every wannabe attorney dreams of writing):

Of course, you also have no recourse against my client individually, as his actions were clearly a parody of your client, a well-known public political figure. This activity is protected by the First Amendment from state law suits, including false light invasion of privacy. See generally, Hustler Magazine, Inc. v. Falwell, 485 U.S. 46 (1988), which is of course directly on point here. ...

My client will not be bullied out of exercising his First Amendment right to make clear his belief that your client is a spoiled, brainless twit who is cheapening the political discourse in this country.
