  •  I just can't listen to McCain anymore (10+ / 0-)

    he's become such a tool of the Tea Party/Far Right extremists and gone off his nut with a combination of age and bitterness over losing to Obama.  

    I don't think there is any far right position McCain wouldn't stake out to try and remain "relevant" (whatever that mean) and keep getting invited to pontificate on Sunday morning shows.  His days of any alleged "moderate" behavior are far behind him and now he's just dancing to the ChristoFascist-FundieWhacko audience that he hopes will keep sending him money to stay in DC and not have to be home with Cindy and the kids.  

    In short, he's disgusting.  Go away, John McCain you were a failure as a Naval Officer (if your granddaddy and daddy hadn't been Admirals, you'd have never selected for LTJG) and you're now a failure as a Senator.  Leave before you utterly embarrass yourself and any legacy you might have.

      they and the neo-cons are worlds apart.  Practically completely different political parties.  The rank and file tea partiers really have no common ground with the neo-cons at all.  McCain is in the mold of the Kristols, the Wolfowitz's, the Boltons-- (i.e. heavy military spending, damn the [financial or human] cost).

      100% percent at odds with, say, the Rand/Ron Paul types.  You saw some of that in the GOP foreign policy debates, if you took some time to watch the (admittedly pretty entertaining) clown show...

      •  'Zactly-two completely different animals. Neocon (0+ / 0-)

        cynicism seems almost boundless, while the teaparty crowd at least seems to have honest beliefs.

        For this reason and others, I think Hagel easily clears the 60 vote threshold...
