My, my. The little old guy is kind of crotchety. Seems he thinks he knows all about immigration as well as Iraq, and he doesn’t mind cursing like a sailor to let people know it.
McCain complained that Cornyn was raising petty objections to a compromise plan being worked out between Senate Republicans and Democrats and the White House. He used a curse word associated with chickens and accused Cornyn of raising the issue just to torpedo a deal.
Things got really heated when Cornyn accused McCain of being too busy campaigning for president to take part in the negotiations, which have gone on for months behind closed doors. “Wait a second here,” Cornyn said to McCain. “I’ve been sitting in here for all of these negotiations and you just parachute in here on the last day. You’re out of line.”McCain, a former Navy pilot, then used language more accustomed to sailors (not to mention the current vice president, who made news a few years back after a verbal encounter with Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont).
“[Expletive] you! I know more about this than anyone else in the room,” shouted McCain at Cornyn.
I guess the right is right, Mr. Mac…you just don’t have that real Christian way about you. Next time use a Robertson-approved epithet like “you homa SECX-yul !!”
God knows, Cornyn is worth insulting, that’s for sure.
