Jeff Flake is engaging in some revisionist history before it’s even history. The story about why he can’t be re-elected is the oldest one in the representative republic books–he failed his constituents. Flake is now making the rounds and, like a good useful idiot Republican, is blaming President Trump for his situation. Watching Meghan McCain lob gushing softballs at him adds to the nausea factor. Flake’s real failure was emulating her father, rather than sticking to his principles and doing what he promised voters he would do.
