Most laughable threat of the week

A tough competition. But I think John McCain is the winner:
Democrats shouldn't expect much cooperation from Republicans the rest of this year, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) warned Monday.
Unlike last year?
"There will be no cooperation for the rest of the year," McCain said during an interview Monday on an Arizona radio affiliate.
Well, why did they need to ask John McCain? I could have told them that.
"They have poisoned the well in what they've done and how they've done it."
Tentative translation: They've hurt our feelings--imagine, they actually had the gall to pass legislation we didn't like, just because they won the last election and had a majority!--so now we'll just sulk for the rest of the year, and let the country go to hell. (Or, to put it another way, "Country first.")

There must be a joke in there somewhere, but I'm not sure I get it.
