Dotard loses another one

Now Jeff Flake has announced that he will not run again.

Arizona Republican Senator Jeff Flake announced he would not seek re-election in 2018 in a historic, blistering critique of President Trump and politics in the US, saying he would rather retire than embrace Trump.

"The notion that one should stay silent as the norms and values that keep America strong are undermined and as the alliances and agreements that ensure the stability of the entire world are routinely threatened by the level of thought that goes into 140 characters -- the notion that one should say and do nothing in the face of such mercurial behavior is ahistoric and, I believe, profoundly misguided."

Flake has been a vocal critic of President Trump and joins Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker as Republican senators who will retire before the midterm elections.

Read Flake's full speech here and watch Jake Tapper's interview with him on CNN at 4 p.m. ET.
References to the speech and interview are links to the CNN site.

He like Corker is not running again because he will not win because he betrayed the people of AZ in his support of Trump's agenda.

Kelly Ward will replace him for that reason.

His speech said one thing I HAVE LIED TO YOU ABOUT WHAT I REALLY SUPPORTED, and I DON'T WANT TO GET MY ASS KICKED in 2018.

Corker/Flake just want to get a headline as they go out the door, the same door I hope does not hit them on the ass as they exit.

You cannot drain the swamp without removing the Swamp Critters.

Flake/Corker don't let the door hit your butts as you leave.

VIVA LA MARSHA BLACKBURN.

BTW, none of these dolts in the Senate had problems with Chappaquiddick Ted Kennedy, a drunk, and a womanizer (before Bill Clinton and Harvey Weinstein there was Ted Kennedy).
