Can John McCain Become Any More Pathetic?

John McCain is by far and away the saddest story in politics over the last 20 years.  Although virtually all Republicans these days are douche bags and have been douche bags all their lives, McCain is the exception — at one point he was actually a decent man.  He was one of the last of the “Goldwater conservatives”, people that you could disagree with but at least see the point of their arguments, and with whom you could work to make this country and this world a better place for all people.

But alas, those days are long gone.  How pitiful was this exchange between McCain and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mike Mullen?  Not only is McCain doing a total flip-flop on the issue, he’s belittling all the top leaders of our military.  There’s no longer any resemblance at all between the John McCain we see today and the one that ran for the GOP Presidential nomination in 1999.  I’m embarrassed for him every time I see him on the news these days.  Hopefully the people of Arizona will vote him out of office this year and we won’t have to watch this tragedy anymore.
