Failed President Sought Companionship Of President

News

After Obama's quashing of lapsed aisle-straddler John McCain in 2008, people apparently thought this loser and winner could come together and do great things, as if the election were a tie or something, as if this were post-Blair England and the leadership options were so bad that the options had to band together in a coalition of mediocrity. People (Rick Santorum) apparently thought there was a place for McCain in Obama's icy, aloof heart. But actually there was not ever, because Obama was and remains as previously described. Still, new scandals (that isn't true) are coming to light, namely that McCain feels he was snubbed by Obama following the election. Snubbed! This is truly shocking. OUR OBAMA, snubbing someone?


In an exclusive interview with the Hill, McCain said (no clue what the question was, but probably, "Can you say something rude about the president?"):

Let’s get real here. There was never any outreach from President Obama or anyone in his administration to me.

Dude the President does not reach out TO ANYONE except Osama Bin Laden. Get in line! A line to nowhere.

So basically McCain denied claims that he rebuffed Obama following the election. In the words of ye Hill:

He said he expressed eagerness to work with the president on immigration reform and the line-item veto, but has been left out in the cold.

This despite the fact that experts (fine, Rick Santorum) described McCain as clear winner Barack Obama's "ace in the hole."

Oh, and this is good. Apparently Obama invited McCain to the White House in 2009, and McCain responded, "I'd love to join you," and then he...

never heard from him.

Apparently Obama had been impressed by an op-ed that McCain had written following the Gaby Giffords shooting.

“We discussed two issues, immigration reform and the line-item veto, which I’m still a supporter of,” McCain recalled. “He said, ‘We’ll be getting back to you.’ I never heard from him, never heard from him again.”

The Church of Scientology had some thoughts about Our Robyn's piece, Who Wants To Watch A Creepy White Guy Rap About Scientology? We had some thoughts about their thoughts.

Thanks for writing in, Scientology! As you doubtless realized when you didn't demand we take down our story, but requested it instead, our opinions of your weird cult and that poor young man's rap skills are protected by the First Amendment. (I learned about libel law in college and grad school but also on the job: I was in newspapers so long that I was actually colleagues with Tony Ortega -- about whom you sound quite "venomous" and "biased" -- at the very same newspaper chain you can't believe he defended! Next up, please show your due diligence by talking trash about a woman you didn't know was my mom.)

Also, a lot of your former members say on the record that you kidnap people, and stalk them, and harass them, and sometimes beat them up good, and I request that if so, fucking stop it.

The rest of you click the headline, if you want your OPEN THREAD.

Monday's Trump-Putin press conference landed on the entire free world like a hot treason-shaped turd, didn't it? Congressional Republicans have been saying mean things about it on Twitter, and even Fox News has been less than 100% supportive! The White House communications department obviously knew it had a crisis on its hands, what with how it's generally considered inappropriate for the leader of the free world to get on all fours in front of the Russian president and wag his tail and slobber with anticipation while he awaits his next marching orders. WOMP WOMP, etc.

So the comms department typed up a thing for the president to read aloud today at the beginning of his meeting with members of Congress, about how he was VERY SORRY he said one word incorrectly during the Putin presser. That's right, only one word of that whole fucking shitshow was wrong. All the rest of his traitor words were exactly what he meant to say.
