Jeff Flake Retires

Goodbye Mr. Flake! A Dream Come True

Ding Dong! The Witch is dead. Which old Witch? The Wicked Witch!
Ding Dong! The Wicked Witch is dead.

Wake up you sleepy head, rub your eyes, get out of bed.
Wake up, the Wicked Witch is dead. She’s gone where the goblins go,
Below – below – below. Yo-ho, let’s open up and sing and ring the bells out.
Ding Dong’ the merry-oh, sing it high, sing it low.
Let them know
The Wicked Witch is dead!- Wizard of Oz

If you haven’t heard Jeff Flake is retiring.  Oh happy days! So many songs only one article!  I just have to be patient, I’m sure there will be more to follow.  So far we have felled two giants in Bob Corker and Jeff Flake.  I can’t be the only one who thinks that more are sure to come.
It makes sense that Mr. Flake felt the need to retire seeing how former Arizona State Sen. Kelli Ward was ahead by a whole 14 points over Flake in an August poll.  For a man who pretends to be all about his principles you would think that he would go down swinging.  But that just isn’t the RINO way.

Let him escape with what little dignity he has left

With an approval rating of 18 percent people just aren’t feeling the same old fake conservative.  If you still want to keep in touch with Jeff, just pick up his book!  His rip off of Barry Goldwater is just the slap in the face you need to wake you up in the morning.

Via Politico:

He took to the Senate floor to deliver a full-throated denunciation of Trump.

“We must never adjust to the coarseness of our dialogue, with the tone set up at the top,” Flake said. “We must never accept the deadly sundering of our country. The personal attacks, threats against principles and freedoms and institutions, and flagrant disregard for decency.”

“Reckless, outrageous and undignified behavior has become excused as telling it like it is when it is actually just reckless, outrageous and undignified,” Flake continued. “And when such behavior emanates from the top of our government, it is something else. It is dangerous to a democracy.”

The decision came with Flake trailing in public polling to former state Sen. Kelli Ward, an arch-conservative endorsed by former White House strategist Steve Bannon who mainstream Republicans consider unelectable in a general election. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, a progressive-turned-moderate serving her fourth term in Congress, is the likely Democratic candidate in the contest.

Maybe John McCain will be next.  We can only pray!
