AZ Asshole: Jon Kyl

Posted: November 23, 2010 in AZ Assholes, Sen. Jon Kyl

The Pres. needs 67 votes in the Senate to ratify a treaty.  Right now the Dems only need a few votes to make that number but after the new year, they’ll need quite a few more.  So what does our illustrious Sen. Jon Kyl do?  He holds up the vote on the treaty making it less likely to be dealt with this by the lame duck session of Congress.   Nevermind all of the former Republican appointed experts on the issue that are urging for its passage.  Nevermind the fact that Russia’s nukes aren’t currently being monitored because the old agreement has expired.  Nevermind the country being placed in jeopardy for lack of an agreement.

Why would Kyl do this and ignore the obvious reasons to pass the Treaty?  Maybe he just wants to get his name in the news as being anti-Obama before 2010….or maybe he wants to use it as a bargaining chip to force Dems to compromise on other issues like DADT, extending Bush tax cuts, etc…..or maybe, all of these reasons.  All of these potential reasons indicate that Sen. Kyl is playing politics with a Treaty that everyone agrees is in our national interest and will go along way toward making us safer. 

No matter how you look at it, he’s an asshole.

    I agree 100%! Jon Kyl is acting like a spoiled brat or an impotent ape, and needs to be taken down a peg or two.
    Self-aggrandizement and catering to big money that can fill his pockets is a normal way of life for this insect that walks like a man.
    He is stupid and boorish, not to mention sounding like a puppet with that filthy old botox queen Mitch McConnell pulling the strings.
    I don’t know what has happened to Arizona since I lived there but I won’t spend my vacation money there and neither will any of my extended family.
    We used to spend a month every year in AZ, but no longer and it is all due to McCain, Kyl and Brewer.
