We‚Äôve known for quite a while now that Sen. Jeff Flake was planning on retiring, but not before fully transforming into some little junior Resistance apprentice. You‚Äôd think he‚Äôd at least retire with the respect of progressives, but if you read the comments on any of his tweets, they‚Äôre all angry at him for being all talk and no action.
So who wants to read his farewell address to Congress? CNN has reprinted it in full, and Jake Tapper provided a handy link Thursday afternoon.

I would literally rather pee jagged shards of glass.
Before reading anything this pompous blue falcon babbles, I would take broken bits of glass, put it in my bladder, and piss it out again. https://t.co/vsiHEYaDUL

Jeff Flake, a man who might have been a great republican.
Except for that whole republican thing.
