Iran/Tantrum Scandal: Day Four


In which doddering Dog of War John McCain manages to make his 2008 running mate sound sober and thoughtful. From Vox (so quit badgering to help you goose your traffic, Ezra!):
McCain's breathtaking defense of signing the Iran letter: "I sign lots of letters"
Since the senior senator from Arizona will apparently sign any-damn-thing anyone puts in front of him, then please, someone, hand that man a political career DNR immediately.

47% of the Senate signed this letter. Remember when Mittens excoriated the 47% as unreachable because they were moochers and bought off with Obamaphones and freebies? I do. There are none so blind, as those who refuse to see.

He basically admitted he didn't know what he was signing. I imagine that happens a lot for the old war "hero" these days.

Not so sure about that, Jerry B. The Politico piece has him saying: "I saw the letter, I saw that it looked reasonable to me and I signed it, that’s all. I sign lots of letters." (emphasis added).

He hates Obama's guts, and would never pass on a chance to diss the President in public. I think he just didn't bank on the sh*tstorm this "looked reasonable" letter would create (despite the screamingly obvious infringement on Executive power and prerogatives it represents). Fobbing his signature off this way is simply his slimy way of evading responsibility for what he did.

You may be right but the first statements seemed designed to make it seem that maybe he didn't really know what it was all about. I think the subtle truth is he really didn't know. Somebody told him it would piss of Obama and that was enough for him.

Biggest sore loser in history.

That would be the South. But Wallnuts is a good runner up.
