Doesnt matter where he is now, he is still a damn canuck. With his beady eyes and flappy heads.

He lives on a golf course. Does he use said course? Havent read anything to say that he does.

In fairness, golf is a shitty sport

A "sport" where you drive a gocart around undulating green fields? Where alcohol and tobacco use are encouraged during play? Where you're in the sun and away from work and family for 4/5/6 hours?

Sir, ..

One of my personal favorite pieces of pork barrel spending is the federal courthouse in Phoenix, a pet John McCain project. Here's a picture of the ginormous atrium. (The actual courtrooms and offices are built around the outside on two sides of the building. You can see them there to the right of the pic. They probably have twice as many as they need. (In contrast to most federal courthouses, which are significantly under resourced and overutilized, this place always felt like a half-empty zen center when I had to go there.)

Because, what makes more sense in the Arizona desert than building it as a giant, multi-floor greenhouse where you're constantly airconditioning a stadium-sized pocket of unused space at the same time you're super-heating through glass walls and ceilings. A couple of the bailiffs told me that (not surprisingly) the HVAC has never really been able to cope, so they basically have to bring layers of clothing every day because the temperature can vary by 20 degrees depending on where in the building they're stationed, and AC system leaks/condensation have made mildew a constant problem.

The last sentence in LD's post reminded me of something. When I was a child in rural Wisconsin, it seems like all the adults around me had nicknames. I literally never knew most of their actual names. But here's the thing in retrospect their nicknames seem extraordinarily strange, even though they didn't appear that way at the time. One guy was always called Mildew. I really never thought twice about it. Another was called Sparrow and another was called Toad. Somehow these weren't meant as insulting at all.
