John McCain needs to go

Yesterday John McCain said that the Republicans who proposed using the "nuclear option" for confirming Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch were "stupid idiots."

Strangely, McCain didn't call the Democrats that when they did the same thing.

McCain uses every opportunity to criticize his own party, and especially Donald Trump, whether or not that criticism is justified.

McCain left his first wife, a former model, after she'd been in a disfiguring automobile accident, in order to marry Cindy Lou Hensley, whose father owned one of the largest Anheuser-Busch distributorships in the nation. But when those Billy Bush tapes came to light, McCain ostentatiously unendorsed Trump, saying that it was impossible to support a candidate who boasted about his "sexual assaults."

After the election, McCain, taking his cue from the media as usual, deemed the Trump White House "an administration in disarray."

McCain has suggested that Trump wants to clamp down on the free press, which is "how dictatorships get started."

He has criticized Trump's travel ban as a "self-inflicted wound in the war against terror."

And McCain has said plenty of other things which seem similarly misguided and off target.

It's high time we gave John McCain back to the North Vietnamese.

I had to look up Gadfly.

Yes he fits that description.

Who exactly is electing him?

Just like that comedian/clown that the good folks in MN elected to Senate.

I tell you John, I am losing hope in Western Civilization.

To anyone who sees Europeasant's comment --
I changed the name of the post from "John McCain, gadfly" to "John Mccain needs to go," Europeasant saw the older version.

Europeasant --
Arizona is a Republican state, and you'd think they'd get tired of a RINO. But McCain has seniority, was a Presidential candidate, and IS a war hero, so he seems to get a pass for his RINO-dom.

After Al Franken wrote that book, "Rush Limbaugh is a big fat idiot: and other observations," I wished that someone would have written a book, "Al Franken is an ugly little dishonest dwarf: and other observations." But even if they had, the publishing establishment being what it is, it would never have gotten published.

'Gadfly' learnt a new word.

Re-checked the guy, he is 80 years, shouldn't he be slowing down and doing some
introspection instead of stoking fires. He should be made to read his own books:
1)Character Is Destiny: Inspiring Stories Every Young Person Should Know and Every Adult Should Remember
2)Hard Call: Great Decisions and the Extraordinary People Who Made Them.

Perhaps he has not heard the proverb, 'Sweep first around your own door, before you sweep the doorsteps of your neighbors.

Yes, he's old alright, but I'm sure he's found the power addictive (I can't talk, I probably would, too, if I had any) and doesn't want to let go.

I wonder if he even wrote those books himself or if they were ghost written.

It's probably a fairly safe prediction that he won't be doing any sweeping around his own door, that sort of activity is not in his nature.
