John McCain refers to Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Justin Amash as “wacko birds”

McCain John

I’m pleased that the Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell praised Rand Paul, and  Republican National Committee Chair Reince Preibus urged fellow Republicans to stand with Rand.

Despite McCain’s claims, Paul finally got Attorney General Eric Holder to state in writing Thursday that the administration would not bomb non-combatant Americans who did not represent an immediate threat. Paul’s efforts were praised by other fellow Republicans, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who said he was “proud” of his fellow Kentucky senator, and Republican National Committee Chair Reince Preibus, who urged the Senate’s Republican members to stand with Rand during the filibuster.

If you can’t take it, don’t dish it out. Justin Amash fired back at McCain on twitter, noting the Senators whereabouts during the filibuster.

Sen McCain called @senrandpaul @sentedcruz & I "wacko birds." Bravo, Senator. You got us. Did you come up with that at #DinnerWithBarack?

Name calling among conservatives… is not a good idea. Insults and disrespect among conservatives… are not good ideas.

John McCain should ask himself how he would feel…and for how long…if he was treated in a similar fashion.
