Today two of my favorite columnists each took a sledgehammer to the spineless lame duck Senator Jeff Flake.
First up, the incomparable Kurt Schlichter.
His Townhall column today is scorching.
Schlichter slaps Jeff Flake around like a redheaded stepchild.
But given what a masochist Jeff Flake is, I’m guessing he likes that.
Here’s just a snippet:
That simpering sap Jeff Flake – he’s the kind of guy who voted for Evan McMullin and still doesn’t regret it. It’s sad to see what was once allegedly a man be utterly emasculated in public and then proceed to dance to please his new masters. He ought to be, and henceforth shall be, known as Jeff! since he’s essentially Jeb! without the pedigree or – here’s the scary part – the spine. Yeah Jeff!, you’ll get your one-shot 60 Minutes tongue bath, and there’s probably a 3:00 a.m. Sunday MSNBC program in it for you, wedged between reruns of Lockup. A hosting gig for a crappy show on a doofus network is today’s equivalent of 30 pieces of silver.
Flake does not care about you Normals, especially you Normals from the Grand Canyon state who are now regretting your decision to send McCain Superlite to the Senate. At least John McCain, for all his faults, flew fighters and took no guff; Jeff! takes a little guff from some shrieking leftist in an elevator and he’s suddenly primed for his Democrat buddies to talk him into helping carry some of the wood for the Brett Kavanaugh witch burning.
The “Democrat buddies” part is key. See, they are his real constituency. Like all Fredocons, he chose trying to please his elite pals over keeping his promise to serve Normals like you. But, of course, he’s been doing that for a while, ever since he was so greatly disappointed in you for choosing Donald Trump and not Moby McMuffin or even Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit. So, it was no surprise that the Dems ID’d him as the weak link, swarmed, and rolled him. In a town like DC that is known for changing the soft and feckless, Jeff! was especially mushy and feck-free.

What astonishes me about Jeff Flake is despite what a masochist he is, he has one super-sized ego.
He really does believe that getting slapped around by the Democrats is his ticket to success.
Which explains why, after getting spanked by the Democrat activists both on and off the Judiciary Committee, Flake followed up with a media victory lap.
Who does that?!

Can you believe this yutz?
It takes an immense ego to think that appeasing the hate mob unleashed by the Democrats is his ticket to the White House.
John Kasich looks humble, realistic and reserved by comparison.
And this brings me to Jesse Kelly’s column in The Federalist.
There’s a great quote from the poker movie “Rounders”: “If you can’t spot the sucker in the first half hour at the table, then you are the sucker.” Time and time again, Sen. Jeff Flake has allowed the left to use him as a tool to advance their agenda.
Flake’s desire to be accepted and loved by the left all too often ends with him knifing conservatives in the back. Repeated attempts to be liked by his enemies has now morphed into Flake working against the small-government ideals he once claimed to champion.
Kelly recounts his personal experience when he ran for Congress in Arizona. He tells of flying to DC to meet with Arizona lawmakers to get their endorsement.
And this is what he says about his meeting with Jeff Flake:
We walked into Flake’s office at meeting time, exchanged a few pleasantries, and then I asked for his endorsement. He didn’t say “Yes.” He didn’t say “No.”. He didn’t ask my positions on taxes, abortion, immigration, or anything else. He didn’t ask about my religious beliefs or my family life. He didn’t laugh in my face and tell me to get out of his office.
All of those things would have been perfectly acceptable and understandable. Instead, however, he said something I’ll never forget, and to this day it makes my stomach turn. He looked me right in the eye and said, “What did John McCain say?”
That’s who Flake is. That’s who he was, and it’s who he’ll always be. He is wholly reliant on stronger men to make his decisions for him. McCain was once that man for him. It didn’t even occur to him to say yes or no when asked for an endorsement.

I’ve said before the problem on the Left is their startling combination of Arrogance and Ignorance.
Flake has a different problem.
He suffers from a combo platter of arrogance and cowardice.
That is a horrible combination.
For one thing, this makes Jeff Flake vulnerable to the Left.
His ego demands recognition and praise. But because he’s a coward, he is easily bullied into just about anything if the reward dangled in front of him is getting a heaping helping of recognition and praise.
Now is not the time for masochists in the Republican Party.
Lindsey Graham figured that out.
But Jeff Flake never will.
His over-fed ego does not allow for self-reflection.
We’re very fortunate as a nation that Flake is leaving the Senate.
Unfortunately for us, he’s determined to do as much damage as possible before he goes.
But of course he is.
This egotistical masochist has his sights on the White House.
Because apparently bending over for Senate Democrats isn’t enough for this feckless bottom.
He wants the chance to bend over for the rest of the world as well.
