That would be Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on the floor of the Senate carrying on against the Tea Party.
“To hold out and say we won’t agree to raising the debt limit until we pass a Balanced Budget Amendment to the constitution. It’s unfair, it’s bizarre,” McCain railed on the Senate floor, “And maybe some people have only been in this body for six or seven months or so really believe that. Others know better.”
Remind me again who it was that selected the leading proponent of the insurgent don’t-retreat-reload Tea Partiers as his vice presidential running mate in 2008.
