Yesterday I posted an article on the antics of McConJob and Lindsey Poo. This is a follow up to that article. Even before McCain attacked Susan Rice, he has been accusing the Obama administration of a cover-up and complaining that his Senate Homeland Security Committee had not been given any information on what happened surrounding the Benghazi attack. Yesterday the representatives from several departments briefed that committee extensively on Benghazi, as scheduled well in advance. Guess where McConJob was during that briefing?

He went from maverick to puppet right before our eyes. He couldn't fly, he couldn't soldier and he couldn't earn an honest dime his entire pathetic life. Thanks again, AZ. You continue to turn out america's worst POS's on earth. And that other chicken hawk, Grahm. Same POS as his bankster dad. Thanks a lot for him. These two puppets of fascism are the collective worse!

McCain (McConJob) has become a MAJOR embarrassment...just one more for the GOP to have to handle! How ridiculous that while he was complaining about lack of information to the press, there was an actual briefing going on, which he was missing...what a doofus!

> This guy makes getting old seem really scary!
Nah. It isn't getting old that is scary. There's plenty of counter-examples, e.g. (in no particular order) Noam Chomsky is a few years older; or Alber Hofmann with 100 years.
The problem is what SOME people do to themselves, what (abomination) they make of themselves.

Let's not forget - McCain cheated on his first wife. McCain is the idiot who sang" "Bomb, Bomb, Iran" during the 2008 campaign. He is the imbecile who chose (or allowed the choice of) Sarah Palin for VP. Now THAT was scary!
And...Obama is one of the few who voted AGAINST the war in Iraq! Even then, he was wise beyond his years!

Hey, guys, lighten up a bit. Yeah, McCain is a Right-wing nut job. But he wasn't always. He served his country honorably (and well) for most of his life, both in the military and in Congress. Yes, he cheated on his wife, but so did Kennedy, Clinton, and even FDR. He voted to invade Iraq, but so did a helluva lot of Democrats. He suddenly got senile half a dozen years back, missed his recommended retirement date, and has been embarrassing himself--and us--since 2008. But none of that erases his lifelong contributions to this country. All his blathering and posturing isn't really hurting anyone but McCain, himself. So why not get a head start on history and give the guy a break? Just let him retire in peace and try to remember him for all the good he's done.
Spot on about McCain as well. What he did in the past is quickly being erased by his own misdeeds, currently. This guy has made himself a public nuisance and worse a public embarrassment. Oh, it's really time for him to retire.

I am sooooo glad my father isn't here to rebutt your statement about McSenile's record of service, Snuffy. But, even so, my father's knowledge of it was and still is classified. All I can say is, Songbird. He is no hero. Whenever my father would see him on TV or be in range of his voice, he'd just about have a fit of apoplexy.....he loathed that (dad's term for him) worm.
Senile, demented, or just (love the pic up there, Tom) an angry old white man with money.....he needs to RETIRE with what little dignity he has left.This brain-dead fool unleashed The Palinator on us all for Dawgssakes.

McCain did himself proud as a pow. And for refusing to take the low road in 2008. But, really, that is about all there is to the man. Yet he walks around as puffed up as a peacock as if he'd actually made something of his life. He becomes more of a joke every day and will be forever remembered mostly for Sarah Palin. Not much of a legacy there, John. Retire and go on the speech making tour, you'll be happier, the country will be better off, well, hopefully you are from the whackiest state in the union after all. But your 15 minutes were up years ago. Just ride off gently into that good night will you? Please?

He should just acknowledge the fact that he's out of touch with the times and more importantly with the people that matter (the 99%) retire his number and leave while he still has a small shred of dignity left. Thanks Tom.

McCain appears to still be suffering from his loss to Obama in 2008. He is also acting like maybe it's time to retire to a nice quiet place.
I have never been a McCain fan. Never voted for him when I lived in Arizona, but at least he used to act reasonably normal for a politician. Now his behavior is often irrational and his judgement questionable. Perhaps he is going the way of Reagan. Just my opinion.

Thanks Tom for the post and the video segment from The Last Word. I sorry to say the Senator McCain probably is showing signs of dementia. He needs to to retire and not hang around embarrassing himself with his grandstanding Read, viewed and noted. antics.
Friday November 16, 2012, 6:34 pm
Thanks Tom, I have never like McCain and I am starting to like him less everyday he opens his big mouth, He is still mad for not being elected for President and thinks he has to try and pick any fight he can with everything, needless to say he is a bitter old man.

I saw a clip of McCain being interviewed (reluctantly) by reporters after General Petraeus testified earlier today. He was visibly squirming and inching away as he gave vague answers to their questions and looked as though someone had pulled the carpet out from under him. He made a fool of himself by making allegations about Susan Rice's statement before there was a full investigation, and now he has to face the consequences. I have a funny feeling that the Republicans are going to spend a lot of time manufacturing reasons to discredit our President. And I agree with others who feel that he's showing signs of senile dementia.

McCain — "We will do whatever is necessary to block the nomination that is within our power as far as Susan Rice is concerned."
What a crock! Liar, liar pants on fire! Amazing how short memories are and how deceitful the right is being. As Karen Finney said, the WMD investigation took a year before coming out and saying 'no WMD' in Iraq but the UN team had already determined no WMDs. Why should this be any different — that is getting the full goods on the situation? I don't see this as being any different than the Condaleeza Rice situation back 2005. McCain voted for her as Secretary of State despite the same issues. As Romney said, sauce for the gander is sauce for the goose.
Interesting how in both situations, we have two relatively young black women, one as a previous Secretary of State, one as a potential Secretary of State, and both with the last name of Rice.
From a comment to Lee E at PP:
"... he is losing his committee seat at the end of the year and will be heading a committee on "Indian" affairs – essentially one that he has no public stature, and as a result has wanted to create a "committee" to investigate Benghazi at his command, which would give him more credence as a pundit on the networks!..."
Really Lee. How interesting. I agree that in his eyes, such a demotion would be especially cutting since he had visions of grandeur as POTUS but lost them to Mr Obama.

Seems to me the Right Wing haven't changed - they only pretend on occasion to be reasonable - then whip off their disguises and go back to being downright psychotic! Retire Mr McCain - you are making a laughing stock of yourself, you really are (and take your meds!).
I will never EVER forgive him for bringing $$arah Palin to prominence - she should have stayed quietly in Alaska. Seems to me his judgment has been highly questionable for a long, long time - who else would approve as a running mate for the possible second job in the country a woman he had only met once! Demented!

Ya know........(yeah, oh, Dawg, here she goes again)
Why is it that WE, you know us 'you people', we little people, the peons, et al, for the most part retire at the Federally decreed age of 65 and/or 67. Many have to continue working, I know, BUT why is there NO MANDATORY RETIREMENT AGE for the Congress????? Oh wait, I get it.....because WE the people actually WORK our entire lives. They get to pose, prance, show off, prattle on and basically ACT for the cameras, the constituencies and the Party heads. with every once in a while, actually having to vote on something that matters. They don't even WRITE the bills anymore (aides and lobbyists do). All the while WE PAY for THEIR PERKS, their positions, their healthcare, their salaries, their vacations (dayum, I'd have LOVED to have 2 and 3 month long vacations when I worked).
The one that really did it for me was when they would wheel out old SENILE Strom Thurman into the well for him to vote on something.....seriously???? WTF!!!! They should have to retire at 67/65 like the rest of us or term limits,,,,whichever comes first. Let some new blood and new ideas fill up the chambers for a change. We may just get somewhere...like.....FORWARD. Ya think? Just sayin'......

I lost respect for John McCain a long time ago. There should be a mandatory restriction on how long someone can serve as a senator. McCain has become a shrill, mentally challenged old man who should do the honorable thing and retire to one of his homes; that is if he can remember where they are.
Saturday November 17, 2012, 11:23 am
John McCain has been as much use as a condom machine in the vatican and the decision to drag Sarah Palin out of the Alaskan bewilderness was considered to be a bad move. Though many were increasingly of the opinion that he made a big mistake in coming down from the trees in the first place. And some said that even the trees had been a bad move, and that the Republicans should ever have left the oceans. The basic Republican strategy if it could be dignified by a strategy is to make as much as possible whilst doing sod all about the actual real issues so his non attendence can be easily put down to an elderly moment it will be only a matter of time before he is having to wear a nappy, but then looking at the Republicans these days they should all be wearing nappies.

The more comments I read, what about a 'medical' that includes mental stability at or after a certain age. In order to get a drivers' license renewal after age 80 here in BC, people must be tested. since politicians are 'driving' their countries, states, whatever, shouldn't there be a test for mental acuity?
Saturday November 17, 2012, 12:52 pm
Tom, couldn't you have found an uglier picture of McCain? That one does not do him justice all things considered. I really like Terrie's comment and whole heartedly agree.

Fiber John, from your actions and the photo above you are seriously in need of some fiber in your diet, that coupled with the fact that you're still fuming over losing in 2008 can be detrimental to your mental and physical health.
