    McCains whole history is that of someone who feels entitled to a bigger role, more importance, by virtue of entitlement .....without actually earning that bigger role.

     He skated through the Academy, he hotdogged as a pilot, divorced and remarried to considerable advantage, paid little heed to the details of governance - the Keating Five Affair being an example.

     And when he has percieved that he has been hard done by hee maintains and thrives a bitterness that is much deeper than his shallow attempts to inject himself into matters of importance -- recall his big summit meeting during the financial crisis: when it morphed into a matter of substance he had nothing to offer. But took away enough fuel for much bitterness in the ensuing years.

     The shallowness of the Sunday Circuit is perfect for him.....he has a throne. He is The Most Important Man On Television. And he has to do nothing to be that. Except show up and accept the fawning adulation of whichever empty suit is his grateful lapdog for the day.

     Exactly what John McCain is entitled to......puppy like adulation from equally mendacious minions......

     It would be nice to think, that with the contract extension of Gregory that that particular venue will soon broadcast into a vacuum of zero viewership.......

     And take John McCain with them.

     Because thats something we are all entitled to......

    it tastes like burning...
