Mitch McConnell Should Have Listened To The Black Man In The White House

Senate Republicans Speak To The Media After Their Weekly Policy Meeting

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s top Republican Thursday warned that legislation enacted over President Barack Obama’s veto to allow families of Sept. 11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia in U.S. courts may have “unintended ramifications” and that lawmakers should discuss fixes to the measure.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said the White House was too slow to warn about the “potential consequences” of the measure. Both the House and Senate overwhelmingly overrode Obama’s veto of the measure on Wednesday.

Jesus H Christ, PO vetoed the bill and Mitch and his merry band of horsemen galloped on regardless. Now they realise, that what is good for the goose is good for the gander.

 

But those concerned about the law warn that it could have a chilling effect on Saudi Arabia’s cooperation with the U.S. in fighting terrorism. They also warn that it could trigger lawsuits from people in other countries seeking redress for injuries or deaths caused by military actions in which the U.S. may have had a role.

Oh shit.

McConnell said that the dynamic involving the bill — in which it barreled through both chambers before and proved unstoppable — was what happens when there is “failure to communicate early about the potential consequences of a piece of legislation that was obviously very popular.”

Other top Republicans and Democrats such as Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker, R-Tenn., are already working on proposed fixes to the law.

Mitch wants a do over because he fucked it up big time. But it is not his fault. President Obama should have told him.

The Aftermath

CIMG1321

That’s what two Bloody Marys,  a swim in the pool, St.Margarets in the afternoon and other concoctions will do to you. I wanted to take Eric home for my daughter but he resisted. I told him I also had two good-looking sons. He was having none of it.

I can’t help but feel that he would be delighted at the debate. It’s lower and slower in Delaware (or something like that).

And that is my pathetic excuse for posting that photo.

Go Hillary go.

You were great.

Holy Shitballs

I have been waiting with bated breath for the debate. It is on at 2 am here in Ireland. I’ve paced myself. I decided against wine and bought gin and tonic instead. I put on my pjs at 9 pm, determined to get some sleep before the shitgibbon hit the airwaves.

Then Tumbleweed from Kansas rang me. Of course that was the end of that. We dissected the election as only we can. I opened the gin. That was a mistake.

I have set the alarm.

Please gawd, don’t let me sleep through the debate!
