Fuck you! I know more about this than anyone else in the room!
Doncha love it when the Church Lady lets an f-bomb slip on the Senate floor?

Sen. John Cornyn accused Sen. John McCain of being too busy campaigning for president to take part in months-long negotiations on immigration legislation.

Cornyn: "Wait a second here, Ive been sitting in here for all of these negotiations and you just parachute in here on the last day. Youre out of line."

McCain: "Fuck you! I know more about this than anyone else in the room!

39. Captain, I threw your goddamn rubber tree overboard...
Different film (Mr. Roberts 1955), I know, but another bow to Lunatics at the Helm. Little did anyone know than we'd be living in such a movie 50 years later.

5. Cornyn deserved it! He might have been sitting there, but
every time he opens his mouth BS flies out! He's almost worse than Shrub! I don't doubt McCain was out campaigning, but my guess is that he really does know more about the immigration problems than Cornyn ever hoped to!

20. Cornyn certainly deserves to be told off, but McCain should not be the one to do it
The "I know more about this than anyone in the room" comment is what really gets to me far more than the "fuck off" comment does. McCain is an idiot, and unless he was alone in that room with Cornyn (which I don't think he was) I can pretty much guarantee he was wrong on that point. His statement was not just an attack on Cornyn it was an attack on everyone who was in the room with him at that time. McCain is incredibly arrogant and this statement proves it.

6. In that case, the RNC needs to be further investigated for keeping National secrets
from both sides.

Seems pretty simple to me. It was just a matter of time before McCain finally blew his shit and let something slip

14. I don't think so because the news stories are saying the exchange was corroborated by many witnesses
and they wouldn't to do that if it was on tape.

Great theater. I second the thought. Fuck Cornyn. In fact, fuck both of them.

21. Read his statement again...
"Fuck you! I know more about this than anyone else in the room!" That is not just an attack on Cornyn it is an attack on everyone who was in the room at that time. McCain was showing an incredible amount of arrogance and I am sure Cornyn was not the only one who felt dismissed at the time. If he would have stopped at "fuck you" I would probably be saying McCain finally did something right, but when he tried claiming he knew more about immigration than anyone else he was showing us all just how wrong he was.

17. I've been amazed a McCain's lack of poise lately
Even the pundits who called him unstoppable a couple of years ago are shaking their heads in shock and exasperation.

He USED to be our most formidable opponent. Next!

18. I second McCain's "fuck-you" to Chickenhawk Cornyn.
The "parachute in" was a gratuitous jibe that obviously referred to McCain's shoot-down over Hanoi in 1967. Iraq War cheerleader Cornyn sat out Viet Nam. Besides, Cornyn is a crooked bastard who has carried BFEE water for a long time now (remember Funeral-gate in Texas?).

I cannot stand McCain, but I absolutely loath Chickenhawk Cornyn.

you park that bus and turn over the keys.

28. I literally passed this thread up last night. I thought it was a drunken rant.
I saw this post just as you made it. I thought I had better be civil and just leave it alone.


Wow, was I wrong!


I'm not sure whether this attitude is the tip of the iceberg, the heart of republican thinking, or just McCain. But I know the people on my side of the fence would never do that. Not in public. We're at least civilized.

31. McCain "parachutes" in.....Gotta Love It!
McCain hasn't voted in the senate in over FIVE WEEKS! Add that with the fact that these senators - on both sides of the aisle - (agree, disagree aside) have been working very hard on this and Cornyn says, "You decide to parachute in here on the last day"......I'm sorry, but I can imagine the Democrats AND Republicans in that room probably had to LOVE that line.

I mean just flying off the handle like that seems somewhat uncalled for. I'd love to see a video clip of this if there is one.

35. What's with the US Senate and its potty mouth of late?
First it was Cheney, now McCain...

Is this suppose to project some kind of "he-man" image that will attract voters? Are stunts like this one suppose to make us more enamored of them? What ever happened to Senate decorum?

...inasmuch as Leno, Letterman and Kimmel can't really "say" that line. Did anyone happen to capture the moment on C-Span? Or did they have their only camera and their only microphone someplace else that day?
