    Hagel didn't back him when he ran against Obama.

    McCain is such a petty, self-absorbed, angry litle man that he'd have refused to vote for Lincoln if Lincoln didn't kiss his PoW ass enough,.

    The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.

      It's amazing how few people have picked up on this. Hagel was McCain's co-chair in 2000 and lead surrogate. Then, in 2008, he took a trip to Iraq and Afghanistan with Obama, casting Obama in a good light, and did not endorse McCain. So, Senator McRevengeServedSteamingHot is out to get even.

      •  I've wondered that too. Even MSNBC (0+ / 0-)

        has pushed the meme that McCain is angry because disagreed with him, broke with him over Iraq--ignoring the fact that it's commonly known that John Boy holds grudges and will turn on friends in a heartbeat if it is to his advantage.
