Prick of the Week – Jon Kyl

November 20, 2010

President Obama put a lot of effort into negotiating a new START treaty with the Russians and trying to secure enough republican votes for its ratification. Every member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff strongly backs it. Admiral Mike Mullen called it “…essential to our future security.” Prominent republicans, like former Secretaries of State Condoleezza Rice, George Shultz, Henry Kissinger, and James Baker support START. Current Senator Richard Lugar, the ranking republican on the Foreign Relations Committee, supports the treaty.

Senator Jon Kyl of Arizona, taking his marching orders from Mitch McConnell, vowed to block the treaty. He is holding our nuclear security hostage in order to embarrass Obama and attempt to defeat him at every turn. The “party of NO” has taken cut-throat partisan politics to a new low and Jon Kyl is the ramrod on this issue. Senator Kyl joins “Senator Gridlock” (former Prick Award winner Mitch McConnell) as this week’s winner of the Golden Prick Award. I hope all you republican voters are proud of your corrupt representatives.
