John McCain’s Seminal Moment

“I know this is a seminal moment, because for the first time since I’ve been here, we stood up and said ‘enough.’”

These were John McCain’s comments regarding the successful GOP filibuster of the Omnibus bill.  Hey, Senator McCain, now that you realize the effectiveness of a united Republican front against the liberal assault on this country, maybe you will use it more often?  You are precisely correct about this being the first time in your tenure that the RINOs stood up.  Please don’t let it be the last.  According to your own admission, it took 28 years to unconditionally stand up to the Democrats on a single issue.  We can only hope that it doesn’t take another 28 for the next time.  Imagine if you had coalesced opposition against DADT, the tax porkulus, and START.  In fact, you voted for the introduction of the START treaty, even though that only required 34 Republicans to obstruct it.  The first time is a real charm, isn’t it?
