Fleshing Out the Disposition of the Senate

According to CQ Roll Call alumnus and current Washington Examiner senior correspondent David M. Drucker, Sen. John McCain has over the past few years evolved into the “conscience of the Senate.”

We’re in absolutely no position (sold our soul years ago) to argue whether the Arizona Republican is the moral center Capitol Hill needs or even deserves right now. But spotting the oft-recycled title did spark an interest in trying out other potential modern day superlatives.

    The Senate is 99% crooked and McCain is included in that number. You quite obviously don’t care what the American public has to say about you.

    Most of you belong in jail. Only about 1% represent the American people anymore. You have enriched yourselves beyond measure during your time in public office. All of this is readily available on the internet.

    I think we’re done here. The goal is to replace you all. The Senate doesn’t have a conscience.

    The seductive nature of our latent instincts is exploited relentlessly by those who oppose liberty and understand the power of the instincts and emotions to which they appeal.
