Latest Pearlclutching Moment

So it appears that the entirety of the Prozi and Cucksphere had a synchronized fainting couch moment when it turned out that the staff in charge of raising and lowering flags on the White House had followed US Flag Code after the death of Senator McCain to the letter.

You could almost hear the “well I NEVAH!” all the way to Texas.

Apparently the Flag Code just simply isn’t good enough for such a towering monument to statesmanship and magnanimity as the late Sen. McCain, and the screams and insults proceeded en masse in the general direction of the Oval Office.

The occupant of which then responded by extending the time the flag would be at half mast until the time of interment, thus elevating the status of the deceased Senator to that of “…an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, a Secretary of an executive or military department, a former Vice President, or the Governor of a State, territory, or possession”, according to the Flag Code that none of the hysterics could be bothered to familiarize themselves with prior to throwing a wall-eyed hissy fit.

Will he get any credit for this?

All signs point to “no”. Instead, we predict that the howling banshees will demand that the President immediately declares a national month of mourning, begin planning for a 200′ monument to the departed Senator and put diplomatic pressure on the Vatican to have him canonized retroactively.

We wish we were joking here.

Thatisall.

So, half-staff on the day of death, and all day on the next day for a member of Congress (senator or representative). Sounds like exactly what Mr. Trump did.

Renaming the senate building after the senator is some more of the same.
I think the first shuttle to the sun should bear his name.
I might rename my dog ‘wetstart’ after him (cause of the happy pee-pee thing, ya’ know).
He doesn’t come when I call him, but he is attentive when offered a bribe.

They had a hell of a time trying to design the funeral procession route because when they loaded his body in the hearse it would only turn left. Finally today he will be flow to DC where he can LIE (in state) to us one more time. I think we should emulate John Watts de Peyster and erect a fitting… Read more »
