It's official: John McCain is crazier than a sprayed roach. He's been screaming to the high heavens: "incoming -- I mean Benghazi -- I mean, git off my lawn."
However, dun, dun, dun, CNN caught up with him in the hall-way when he should have been in the briefing --mic in face: http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/...
McCain, who has accused President Barack Obama of not telling the truth about the Benghazi attack, said that even though there are several committees involved in the probe, only a select committee could streamline the information flow and resolve the "many unanswered questions" about the tragedy.What??
When CNN approached McCain in a Capitol hallway Thursday morning, the senator refused to comment about why he missed the briefing, which was conducted by top diplomatic, military and counter-terrorism officials. Instead, McCain got testy when pressed to say why he wasn't there.
He missed the meeting??
But, but, but, I thought he said this is the new Watergate. Surely there must be a good reason. McCain:
"I have no comment about my schedule and I'm not going to comment on how I spend my time to the media," McCain said.Okay fine...he obviously had a meltdown after being caught slacking on an issue that he's filled his pie-hole for weeks. In my mind, that disqualifies Old Man River to ever speak on Benghazi again.
Asked why he wouldn't comment, McCain grew agitated: "Because I have the right as a senator to have no comment and who the hell are you to tell me I can or not?”
When CNN noted that McCain had missed a key meeting on a subject the senator has been intensely upset about, McCain said, "I'm upset that you keep badgering me."
