Sen. John McCain (R-Senile) has been receiving praise from some circles for proposing Bill Clinton as peace negotiator for the current troubles in the Near East:
McCain spoke in an interview on CBS, saying the U.S. should be "as heavily involved as they possibly can" in the region.http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/...
"I would find someone even as high-ranking, frankly, as former President Bill Clinton to go and be the negotiator," McCain said.
"I think that it's very important that we recognize that the United States of America has got to push as hard as we can to resolve this Israeli-Palestinian issue. And so many events hinge on making that process go forward."
What is so remarkable about this position taken by McCain is what has gone unsaid, that there isn't a single Republican that he can think of who has the stature, the respect from the international community, the gravitas, to undertake this mission.
While McCain and Lindsey Graham are leading their crusade against Susan Rice for Secretary of State, while they try to rescue the GOP's self-delusion that they are the foreign policy experts, while they try to rescue their party's discredited brand from the ashes, what we see in real time is that when reality creeps in, their only option is to point to a Democrat in a time of need.
Hilarious. Sad. Today's GOP.
