Congress: Who you callin' a wacko bird?

Newt Gingrich called McCain’s attacks on Rand Paul and Ted Cruz (on drones) “sad.” McCain also called Paul (and Ted Cruz) “wacko birds.”

Reince Priebus, on the other hand, called Rand Paul’s filibuster “completely awesome.”

This continues not to be your grandfather’s Senate… “Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren continued pressuring banking regulators Thursday, criticizing them during a Senate hearing for failing to enforce tougher penalties on the nation’s largest banks,” the Boston Globe reports. Warren: “If you’re caught with an ounce of cocaine, the chances are good you go to jail. But evidently, if you launder nearly a $1 billion for drug cartels and violate our international sanctions, your company pays a fine and you go home and sleep in your own bed at night...I think that’s fundamentally wrong.”
