Re: “TGIF: An open line and the news roundup

This is your Grand Old Party...

"Time to repeal 17th Amendment. Founders had it right-Senators chosen by state legislatures. Will work for their states and respect 10th amid

Gov. Mike Huckabee (@GovMikeHuckabee) July 28, 2017

Fox News Eric Bolling also called for the ouster of the three Republicans who killed the bill.

"My 3 RINO's" or.. "The Three Senate Stooge's". 3 GOP RINO's fail America again. Time to elect real conservatives. #maga will prevail https://t.co/NKDZPhm3kt

Conservative radio host Dana Loesch took the failed vote as a sign that the pathetic GOP will never repeal Obamacare.

There will be no repeal. Too many GOP actually want it. Pathetic.

Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) July 28, 2017

Other pundits specifically lashed out at McCain. Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Susan Collins (R-ME) also voted against the bill.

It would have been refreshing if McConnell, after O'Care loss, simply said, "John McCain is a complete and total JERK." https://t.co/QoO00B38H6

Laura Ingraham (@IngrahamAngle) July 28, 2017

It "fell short" due to 1 vote: Yours. Foreclosing any vote on a finalized bill that may have come much closer to fulfilling your promise. https://t.co/vTPbPKMRzc

Sorry, Arizonans disproportionately suffering under Obamacare's failures, your Senator has other priorities despite what he told you. https://t.co/obPgV0TjaU

Re: “Trump's Boy Scout backlash

The 'dumbingdownization' of America continues.

Trumpets, what happened to America?

[Two US senators caught on hot mic calling President Trump 'crazy']

"I think -- I think he's crazy."

Re: “Whatever secret bill Senate considers, winners and losers are the same

To argue with a man who has renounced the use and authority of reason, and whose philosophy consists in holding humanity in contempt, is like administering medicine to the dead, or endeavoring to convert an atheist by scripture.

Re: “The midweek open line

Funny that...the right wingnut 'TalibanArk's' trash Hollywood, given their hero The Great Manipulator Trump's indispensable henchman.

"Bannons Hollywood season, and his various other adventures, as preparing him for his true vocation as ringmaster of the new, Trump-led right. Bannons talent, like Trumps, is finding and picking up the strains of hidden grievance: against media elites, feminists, civil rights activists, left-wing professors, and, above all, immigrants."

Re: “Tall Talking Tom Cotton emerges from hiding on health care

Poor Duffer...

What's old JBS is new again.

"This is what the 21st-century John Birch Society looks like. Gone is the organizations past obsession with ending the supposed communist plot to achieve mind-control through water fluoridation. What remains is a hodgepodge of isolationist, religious and right-wing goals that vary from concrete to abstract, from legitimate to conspiracy mindedgoals that dont look so different from the ideology coming out of the White House. It wants to pull the United States out of NAFTA (which it sees as the slippery slope that will lead us to a single-government North American Union), return America to what they call its Christian foundations, defund the UN, abolish the departments of education and energy, and slash the federal government drastically. The John Birch Society once fulminated on the idea of Soviet infiltration of the U.S. government; now, it wants to stop the investigation into Russias 2016 election meddling and possible collusion with the campaign of President Donald Trump."
