There comes a time in everyone’s life when they just need to bow out gracefully and ride off into the sunset. John McCain’s time for that arrived about four years ago.
It’s unfortunate that he has not yet realized it.
In a recent interview with Greta Van Susteren on her brand new network, MSNBC, McCain looked uncomfortably close to a bowel movement as he gushed over being the first guest on her first show on the new network. The two seemed to be sitting so close to each other that their knees may have been knocking together (the sound of clunking may be heard if you listen closely).
Greta’s first question was, “Donald Trump, can you work with him?” Not surprisingly, McCain smirked as he said, “I think I can,” and we’re all thinking “but -”
Yes, he did add to that statement, “But I will not compromise my opinions on the matter of national security, blah, blah, blah…”
That is strange, coming from “The Maverick” who was known to compromise almost to a fault with the Democrats over just about anything. The hands-across-the-aisle, Kumbaya, fireside sit-ins were what McCain was known for, right? Needless to say, he was adamant that the Russians tried hacking the election process and that they were the most dangerous force on the planet, etcetera, etcetera. (yawn)
But here’s the juicy part, via Breitbart:
McCain said, “Everything I have seen indicates that this was an attempt to affect the election. I don’t believe it affected outcome of the election but I think there is overwhelming evidence this was an attempt on Vladimir Putin’s part.”
He continued, “If they were able to destroy the way we elect our government then obviously, that’s a kind of blow to America which would really destroy the fundamentals of democracy. How can you have democracy without fair elections? So in that respect it is a, quote, “war.” But it’s not a nuclear attack. It’s not all thing we normally associate with warfare. So you calibrate the response. It doesn’t mean that just because it’s an act of war that you then launch all the missiles. But it does mean you have to have some kind of response. My complaint about the Obama administration is they know this hacking was going on for a long period of time and they never did anything about it…They said they didn’t want to disturb negotiations about Syria. That they were worried about another reaction by the Russia. That to me is incredible.”
The many typos aside, it appears to me that McCain is becoming more incoherent every day that goes by and is not helped by the fact that he seems to be barking up the wrong cell phone tower, if we’re being honest.
Of course, it’s difficult to make any sort of judgment call on this man’s opinion, when it appears that you couldn’t drag a coherent opinion out of him if you used a oxen!
Suffice it to say that, true to form, McCain appears to think that we’re still residing in the year 2008 and he’s still trying to win the White House by remaining friendly with the Democrats and their salivating enablers, the mainstream media.
Snap out of it, John! Your horse is saddled and ready! Time to ride off!
