    McCain calls Paul, Cruz, Amash ‘wacko birds’

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is continuing to criticize his fellow Republicans for their filibuster of incoming CIA Director John O. Brennan over drone policy. In an interview with the Huffington Post, McCain referred to Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) and Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) as “wackos.”

    I like Amash's response at the end of the article.

    It is leadership like McCain, McConnell, and the rest of the big government establishment Republicans that have handed power to the Democrats on a silver platter. We need leadership that is distinct from the socialist Democrats, and Rand Paul is a good start.

    Agree. The key word is establishment. It's been said that Washington changes people. I believe it and think that it is a good argument in favor of term limits.

    I must admit to not knowing too much about him. His filibuster and the support he garnered along with cornering the WH into a response makes a good impression to me.

    His father on the other hand...

    I actually believes that the Senate changes people more than the House!

    A by-product of longer terms, perhaps?
