    McCain is such a turd. Rice was not wrong. She repeatedly stated caveats  that investigation ongoing and information now known by her.

    This is not news to women or people of color. But, man i sure felt great to see President Obama, some democrats, people in general and friends stand up for Rice against these racist/sexist remarks. We take so much BS from McCain et al, but feels so good to have some stand up for us.

      hero militarily, they get a free pass to say or do anything so even racism is not held against him by his party.

      But we know what is going on. McCain is no hero to me, he is utterly beyond contempt for being a bitter man who is out for revenge that he didn't win once the presidency and Obama did twice. It is clear as day because there is no substance to his and Lindsay Graham's accusations, just bull s**t, and they should be ashamed but are enjoying their little racist tirade which will get them nowhere.

        It is selective,  see Kerry & the swiftboaters.  I am  perplexed when people claim Kerry staged his time in Vietnam.  How did he know he would come home safely? Yet people latched onto the swiftboater smear campaign.

        I don't disparage anyone who served but the double standard takes the cake.

         The military service is brought out to serve the benefit of the Hannitys of the world - Clinton got eviscerated but Bush got a pass, Romney, etc.
