    •  There was a time... (4+ / 0-)

      when I would have voted for Grampy McCain: his 2000 primary run against George W. Bush.  At that point in his career, I think McCain had enough mental clarity remaining that he would have been a decent president.

      What I'm seeing since his beatdown by Rove and GWB is a truly bitter and angry old man.  We make fun of it here, but I do think that given his Trump-esque obsession with Benghazi, it's time that McCain calls it a day in DC and spend more time with his family.

      If Cindy will let him, that is.

      •  I would never have voted for mccain, (4+ / 0-)

        but at the time, I did have a shred of respect and would have considered him a credible challenger to Gore, if...IF Gore had been on his game, which of course, he wasn't...I guess Gore had issues of his own...that entire election was a debacle from the beginning to the scotus appointment.

        here we are in 2012 and john mccain couldn't manage the sunset years of his career as a wise  party "elder"... no, sorry john, you have only invented yourself as the most despicable character in awhile. And your little dog too...
