Grampa Walnuts Blasts Crazy Eyes

This is twice in two days Ol' Drool Buckets has said something right. First, "Snowflake Snooki was a better candidate than Willard" and now this:

Raw Story

Arizona Sen. John McCain took to the Senate floor on Wednesday to call out a fellow Republican lawmaker for “specious and degrading attacks” which allege that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s deputy chief of staff had infiltrated the U.S. government on behalf of radical Islamists in the Muslim Brotherhood.

Last week, the St. Cloud Times reported the Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann and four other Republicans had called on inspectors general in the State, Homeland Security, Defense and Justice departments to investigate “potential Muslim Brotherhood infiltration” of the Obama administration by Huma Abedin, an aide to Secretary Clinton and wife of former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY).

“It has been alleged that Huma Abedin, a Muslim American, is part of a nefarious conspiracy to harm the United States,” McCain explained on Wednesday, noting that the accusations were based on an “unsubstantiated” report by Frank Gaffney’s neoconservative Center for Security Policy.

“When anyone — not least, a member of Congress — launches specious and degrading attacks against fellow Americans on the basis of nothing more than fear of who they are and ignorance of what they stand for, it defames the spirit of our nation and we all grow poorer because of it,” he added.

A little grudgingly on my part, good for him. Have McCain's doctors told him something that is making him cram for his finals by starting to tell the truth? Time will tell.

There's two more interesting things about this.

First, that motherfucker Gaffney is the worst-of-the-worst neocon bottom feeders. He's a lying, warmongering shit-for-brains sacka crap who makes stuff up. Or, as F**Noise calls him, a "foreign policy expert".

Second, this lie about Ms. Abedin and Hil is taken as gospel by some post-electorally disgruntled Egyptians who threw tomatoes and shoes at Sec Clinton's car on her visit to Egypt the other day. They hollered "Monica!" at her too. Heh.

Note to Hil, who uses the Brain in all her important decisions: If you need to chill after that, my offer of a hot weekend getaway still stands. :-)

Grampa Walnuts was visibly uncomfortable when his campaign supporters were saying that kinda stuff in 2008 at his campaign rallies. He may be a cranky old senile grampa, but he's never been that kind of bigot. Neither was GWB, for that matter... GWB was a cad and an ass, but the one thing he did right was come out after 9/11 and remind folks that there were Americans who were Muslims and they were just as much real Americans as all other Americans.

Republicans have been dog whistling for a long time, since at least Richard Nixon's Southern Strategy, but at least some of their leaders are visibly uncomfortable when their dog whistling actually turns up dogs...

I say put Hillary Clinton and Frank Gaffney in a locked room.

Ten minutes later, Hill will walk out picking her teeth.

Yeah, I'll give this to the old man, he doesn't put up with the obviously crazy. He's better than most of the GOP that way.
