Jeff Flake is aching for a Trumping

Jonathan Kobes became the 30th appellate judge appointed by President Donald John Trump to win Senate confirmation. Jeff Flake the Fake Republican tried to embarrass Kobes by forcing Vice President Mike Pence to cast the tie-breaking vote. History will record that Judge Kobes was the first circuit judge to be confirmed by a tie-breaker.

So what?

This is Senator Flake's final attempt to capture relevance after a one-and-done term as a senator. Elected in 2012 from Arizona after six terms in the House, he was a rising star -- who burst into flames immediately.

Spectacularly, I might add.

And long before a Trump presidency was a gleam in Melania Trump's eye.

"How Jeff Flake Became the Most Unpopular Senator in America," Atlantic magazine reported on April 23, 2013.

"It wasn't easy dethroning Mitch McConnell as America's least favorite Senator, but Flake has done that in just three short months, a new poll out Monday reveals — and his fall from rising-star grace is not quite the head-scratcher you might think."

Donald Trump didn't break him.

Flake shattered himself. He ran as a social conservative, but once seated in the Senate he pushed for more gun control as well as gay marriage. He also joined the Gang of Eight who wanted immigration laws liberalized.

His family did not help.

"Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, a devout Mormon and family man, has apologized for homophobic, racist and anti-Semitic comments posted online by his teenage son," the New York Daily News reported on June 13, 2013.

Media reports say he has spent time in New Hampshire this year for a possible presidential run.

That's nice. Democrats need all the candidates they can get.

  1. Arizona has produced some serious leftist kooks lately. The heat perhaps.

    1. I think he was either lying through his teeth to get elected, or someone had some serious shit on him, like a sex tape or something.

      I no longer vote for really outspoken social conservatives who seem on the surface to lead exemplary lives. No one is that pure (well, except maybe Pence) and you know that when they set themselves up that way, they are either easily brought down or controlled.

      Part of the reason Trump is able to survive so well is because we knew he wasn't pure in the first place. He made it clear years ago he liked women and bedded many, many of them.

      We voted for him because he was the outsider we've been looking for and is almost right wing.

    2. Several conservative Cardinals have been defrocked by this Pontiff for sure. All robe, no wine.

  2. Ahhhh.

    Goo Goo eyes flake.

    One, amongst many, whose head shot begs to be printed upon each and every square of a roll of toilet paper.

    1. Nah, just give him a fresh pair of magic undies and reconfirm his reservation for a planet of his own. I’m sorry, but Mormonism is a cult.

    2. All body rooted speculations, be they considered religions, philosphies, principles, beliefs, etc., are cultish in their practices.

      Whatever speculative shoe fits you, you wear it.

      The Design provides body experiences not subject to speculative manipulations.

      Argue with gravity, gravity prevails.

      Disagree with thermal effects, and ya get to freeze or boil, at the discretion of your chosen stubborness.

      Object to the finite quality of the quantity of your individual sequence of experiencing body existence, and your sequence will conclude as Designed, no matter how vigorously your objections may be.

      No!!! Not yet!!!! Only works until the Yet is Now.

      Might as well toss another shot of Jack into the coffee, as the Design remains what it is, until such moment as the Designer chooses to modify it.

  3. Flake succumbing to the Siren Song of the Left. Wonder how long it will take him to figure out that they have more respect and acceptance for Stormy and her professional coworkers. He can scrub that scarlet letter all he wants, he'll always be tainted goods -- on both sides.

    The Arizona pariah will wish that they made a vaccine to help with what ails him, because I see some serious deliriums in his future.

  4. Run Jeff Run. Suffer the embarrassment you deserve. But before you run, may you officially join the Trumpenfreude list.

  5. I'm old enough to remember when Flake was in the House and was a rising star, and deservedly so. But, I've never seen anyone crash so spectacularly as Jeff did. I assumed he just got under McCain's thumb once he got in the Senate, and that was that. You know how that story goes...

  6. Since his brain short circuited maybe he thinks his future will be if Biden and Romney team up to head an independent ticket in 2020 financed by some dumb billionaire that he'll be trusted by Romney since birds of a feather flock together.
