Dumbfuckery du Jour

For those of us who were wondering just what sort of screaming tantrum the Cons would throw after getting their asses handed to them on a platter, wonder no more:
Arizona Sen. John McCain (R) told the media on Monday about his outrage over the Democratic majority voting to approve legislation they support. He announced that, going forward, he would tell Dems to stay off his lawn refuse to cooperate in the Senate's legislative process. To punish Democrats for fulfilling their campaign promise to the nation, McCain said, "There will be no cooperation for the rest of the year."
We saw the manifestation of this pettiness yesterday, when Republicans used an obscure rule to block any Senate hearings from continuing after 2 p.m. Amanda Terkel reports on the developments that are almost too juvenile to believe.

Today, during a Senate Homeland Security Subcommittee hearing on transparency, Sen. Tom Carper (D-DE) announced that he had to stop the proceedings because of Republican blocks. [...] 
My my my.  Les enfants terrible strike again. 

If the American electorate rewards these jackasses with a majority again, I swear to fuck I'm leaving the country.  I'll never be able to look another American in the face ever again.
