Dickweed of the Day: Jay Rockefeller

West Virginia doesn’t have just one embarrassing Senator, but two. Aren’t they lucky?

Jay Rockefeller, just one of many winners of the “Lucky Sperm Lottery” who bide their time in the senate, showed the usual left-of-center congressional reverence for the military when he said the following about John McCain in a newspaper interview:

“McCain was a fighter pilot, who dropped laser-guided missiles from 35,000 feet. He was long gone when they hit. What happened when they (the missiles) get to the ground? He doesn’t know. You have to care about the lives of people. McCain never gets into those issues.”

So disconnected was McCain from the action that he was shot down and spent seven years being tortured — a perpetual misery not unlike the feeling one gets when listening to a liberal who was born breach into the silver spoon at such a velocity that ran all the way up and poked a hole in his brain.

Later I’ll apologize to Mr. Rockefeller for that comment and it’ll make everything go away. At least that’s how Rockefeller thinks it works.
