My Dinner With Zero

How you been? Good.

Last night we got to witness THE perfect contrast between the (admittedly tiny) freedom-loving wing of the GOP and the old guard of gutless country-club grifters.

On one hand, you had Paul, Lee and Cruz questioning whether or not it was wise to give the executive branch the freedom to assassinate its own citizens with drones. A simple question really. When your leaders are soulless idealogues, perhaps this type of power should be carefully considered before being handed out like popsicles at a 6-year-old’s pool party.

On the other, you had McShame, Lispy and our own beloved Corker breaking bread with the very same commie who has repeatedly pretended to play nice while turning around and stabbing them all in the back as soon as the cameras show up. If I were dumber, I would say that these Senators are simply naiive, but these jackals are in it for themselves as they’ve always been. I hope they kissed his ring as they entered.

Lawmakers emerged from the powwow describing it as a positive meeting and a friendly gathering that focused on the possibility of eventually reaching a deal on the budget and deficit reduction. But the meeting does not appear to have been any kind of a negotiating session – rather more of a way to build trust and relationships that have been absent for much of Obama’s term.

The meeting is part of Obama’s sudden new outreach to Republicans. He invited the senators to the dinner, and he has also asked House Budget Committee Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) to have lunch with him at the White House today. The committee’s ranking member, Democratic Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, will also join them.

Emerging from the gathering, Sen. John McCain of Arizona gave reporters the thumbs up, as did Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, who was close to Obama when the two served together in the Senate. No word on whether they were referencing the food or the meeting.

Our one-party political crime syndicate continues apace. Thank God for the few who are still willing to buck the system in the midst of a massive lost cause.

MOAR:

Just in case you’re not clear on the situation or have been living under a rock for 8 years, McShame and Lispy (as well as Lamar! and the rest of the crew) need to go. Yesterday. They are the cancer. Paul/Cruz/Lee are the chemo.
