Did you hear the one about the soon-to-be secretary-of-state and the Texas senator?
Cornyn, you'll recall, had just prevented a unanimous consent vote on Hillary's nomination and Thrush, who saw but did not hear the discussion, characterized the exchange as "heated," which Cornyn denied.
Well, one of our eagle-eyed sources spotted the same discussion and was able to get within earshot just in time to hear Clinton warn Cornyn, "The Clintons don't forget."
One day later, Cornyn's objections to Clinton's confirmation magically disappeared and the man who had set the roll call vote in motion voted in favor of confirming Clinton.
I heard that if you're in the darkened senate chamber after hours and you whisper "The Clintons don't forget" to yourself three times, the transparent phantasm of John Cornyn's ball will materialize before you and beg forgiveness.
