McCain The Monster

John McCain went on Brian Kilmeade's radio show this morning to shake his angry fist like he was yelling at a squirrel to get off his damned lawn.

General Powell, you disappoint us and you have harmed your legacy even further by defending what is clearly the most feckless foreign policy in my lifetime.
You know, that really takes some head-up-the-butt chutzpah. Here is a guy who lived through two terms of the most feckless president to ever sit in the Oval Office. A president who failed to take the warnings of an imminent attack by Al-Qaeda seriously. A president who then used that attack to lie us into an unnecessary war in Iraq. A war in which 4,487 soldiers lost their lives and another 32,223 were seriously wounded. A war which distracted our military from the first war he started in Afghanistan. This is the very same president who John McCain knew better to discuss during his run for office in 2008 lest he be linked and mired in the failed foreign policy legacy of George W. Bush.

Senator, nothing about General Powell's endorsement of President Obama will harm his legacy as much as you just harmed your own. You have been on the path of irrelevancy for a long time now. Congratulations, you have just fallen to the level of irrelevancy of your Vice Presidential choice. Senator, get off our lawn.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
