“That’s the beauty of a six-year term.” -Senator Jeff Flake on his filibuster of background checks
Right. The beauty of a six-year term is that Americans may forget over the next five years that you chose to screw them.
This is as cynical as it gets.
Considering Flake’s reported close, personal friendship with Gabrielle Giffords and Mark Kelly, his nonchalant dismissal of political consequence is the epitome of dickish quotes.
@jeffflake I’m confused, friend. You had that chance yesterday. Want to rethink and join me and Gabby in making Arizona safer?
