  •  Why isn't McCain's vote the lead story of the day (8+ / 0-)

    right after Mitt's bullshit tax return release? This guy has been the self-righteous champion of the troops and veterans for it seems like a century. Does he not even respect all he has said he was and on some counts actually was? I really, really do not get it. He might drop dead tomorrow and this will have been his last political act.

    We have only just begun and none too soon.

      care about the troops when it's convenient. If they could get a cute or tragic photo-op out of it they'd be on it like ugly on an ape. And besides, they probably don't want to hurt the feelings of their most favorite Sunday talk guest. Why, without John McCain they'd have hours of dead time to fill on Sunday morning.

      If we got Mitt to be slightly less dishonest and gave him some personality he could pass as a used car salesman.

      I'm so mad at Republicans for blocking this bill, I could spit.
