Sweary McCain Amnesia

Westminster is very dead but at least the US are entertaining us. Guido’s favourite detail from the fiscal cliff fall-out was Politico’s snippet about GOP House Chairman Boehner telling Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to “go f**k” himself outside of the Oval Office.

Even nominal Republicans like Meghan McCann got upset:

That would be the daughter of foul mouthed John McCain, who famously dropped the c-bomb at Meghan’s mother in public in 1992“S**thead,” “***hole” and “f**king jerk” are all regulars in the McCain playbook too…

    Cameron is president of G8 this year:


    Interesting letter he sent out. Does this mean we don’t give a to$$ about the credit downgrade ?

      HMMM says:

      His Tony Blair politics were bad enough, now he is getting to sound more and more like Gordon Brown, off with the Global again, you just can’t beat a few high minded phrases that signify nothing, feed the birds tuppence a bag.

    Sir William says:

    The trick, as always, is to spend less than one’s income. Most people manage it, but it seems to elude Governments, who find as many fancy excuses for overspending as an alcoholic does for drinking.

    Cong. John Boehner (R-OH), Spe*aker, US House of Representatives, says:

    By the way, for any who don’t know, it’s pronounced “bay-ner,” lest you make the obvious joke about H*a*r*r*y Reid getting reamed, either by himself or by me.

      Actually Bob, that is the most sensible thing said so far on the matter.

      But could you elaborate more on that parallel you drew to the live CNN coverage of the New Year just past ?

    Sandra in Accounts says:

    So to avoid going over the fiscal cliff Obama has added $4 Trillion to US debt.

    And he is still spending like Gordon Brown on extra sugar Tango & mental meds.

    The US, like the British have elected those who will pass on debt to our grandchildren rather than deal with the issue today.

    Office means more to these self serving bastards than anything else.

    They are thankfully running out of road to kick the can down.

      HMMM says:

      We used to play a game when I was a kid called Kick Can and Hop it, somebody was nominated to kick the can, the rest of us ran away as fast as we could, the can kicker had to retrieve the can and place it back on its original spot before being allowed to chase the rest. A variation of Hide and Seek.

        R.B. Gorrah says:

        We used to play something similar called Knock down G*nger which entailed ringing someone’s front door bell and running away like the clappers before the occupant came to open the door. Bloody kids…


        • 44
          HMMM says:

          We used to call that; ringing somebodies door bell and then running away.

          Oh for gawds sake... says:

          These days, it’s called ‘Parcel-forcing’, and you have to stick a ‘We called while you were out’ card through the letterbox as well as ringing the bell.


          • longbow says:

            apparently the septics have a game called “the flaming poo poo trick” which entails shitting in a paper bag, putting it on somebodies doorstep, setting fire to it, ringing the door bell and running away.


          • elvisly yours says:

            I think that game’s called Operation Enduring Freedom.

      Some people will have done very nicely.

      Gordon Brown says:

      I never ever used a swear. My moral compass forbade it.

      Not one fucking time in the whole of my long and prosperous reign did I call anyone a Hunting fuckhole or similar.

      I’m a religious man. Fuckers.

    Excellent debate with Owen Jones just now on benefits cap row. V disturbed that we agreed on some things. Pass the smelling salts!

      Just heard it. Little ‘O’ spoke the same bollocks he always does for 90% of the time.
      The other 10% he was too high pitched for normal audio to hear.
      The dog walked off though, so assume it was more of the same.

        18 months unemployed says:

        Child benefit limited to £25 per household .

        That would sort things.

        My great grandad had no child benefit and he was one of eight .

        He lived to be 98 so it didn’t do him any harm .

    The welsh youtube prick obviously hasn’t got out of bed yet.

    Yvonne from the Colliers Arms Clydach says:

    Cameron is now wasting his time and our money saying the G8 leaders should be “brave” .

    For Christ sake should they really be wandering around scared of their own shadows?

    How the hell did the Tories get to leave us with Cameron ?


  25. 51
    Abdel from Tooting says:

    I thought things were bad when John Major started calling fellow Tories ” Bastards “.

    These latest revelations are really just too much especially when you realise that these comments can be wafted into our living rooms at any moment now we have satellite TV.

    Gay Marriage - Third Way says:

    There is an obvious solution for the Gay Marriage issue if there really is such a pressing demand. Why don’t they set up their own Church and get on with it ?

    What a bunch of self serving, publicity seeking arseholes. The yanks are shit at solving their own problems.

      Jane Birkin from Paris says:

      Please remember that the Us dollar is the World’s Reserve Currency .

      We are all effected by it in the West .

      Wing Nut went swanning off on his hols with his country facing bankruptcy.

      His cack handed approach today has sent the markets spinning up but do not be fooled.

      Cameron should have summonsed the US Ambassador to Downing Street and given him a right anglo saxon earful but you can bet your bottom dollar (sorry) that he has done nothing of the sort .

    Wow, Guido seriously can’t tell the difference between jokingly calling a country a ‘sexy bitch’, and telling a senior Senator to go fuck themselves.
