Sen. John McCain has hired Elizabeth O'Bagy, the Syria analyst in Washington who was fired for padding her credentials, The Cable has learned. She begins work Monday as a legislative assistant in McCain's office.
O'Bagy was a young but well-respected adviser at the Institute for the Study of War and had emerged quickly as an important voice among those arguing in favor of intervention in Syria. McCain and others had cited her work publicly before her nascent reputation collapsed when it was discovered that her claims to having a combined masters/PhD were false and that in fact she had not yet defended her thesis.

Not Satire! Just SAD!!!!!
“McCain Hires Controversial Syria Analyst Elizabeth O’Bagy”
I’m shocked! /sarc.
OBagy worked for ISW, founded by Kimberly Kagan.
Kagans brother is McCain adviser, Robert Kagan.
Who is Robert married to? Victoria Nuland, former spokesperson for the United States Department of State. (She was nominated to serve as Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs in May 2013.)
Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham were vocal critics of the administrations messaging after the Benghazi attacks, but on Friday, they issued a laudatory statement about Victoria Nuland
The similarities of lord McCain and prince bama are striking.
Sounds like a bunch of imbred losers..
Nope, NOT satire! Just Sad!
HEY McCAIN, DON’T GET STUCK ON STUPID!
Not the ones who campaigned against him - you guys have my sympathy. For you others who voted for him...sigh.
He’s beyond stuck!
McCain can be recalled
Arizona law has a recall process.
He has publicly stated if he is recalled by Arizona voters he will respect their wishes and resign .
I still cant believe he would hire some one who has been discredited as a fraud.
NO EFFING WAY??????????
Are you sure?
I looked it up and everything I found said a US Senator cannot be recalled.
It would be great if they can be recalled..
This has got to be a joke. Please tell me it’s a joke..
The only joke here is McStain!
That would be McCain bowing to a non-binding “vote of no confidence,” not a true recall of a Federal office-holder (which is unpossible). Watch for him to renege on any pledge to resign.
I imagine that McCain’t brings the bacon to Arizona, and not just some turkey bacon or vegan stuff, but the real thang!
And this is why we need term limits. McCain turns conservative 6 months before the primary, raises millions of dollars with his Washington connections, and once he wins he turns into a RINO again!
He is now just thumbing his nose at us. AZ voters seem unwilling to retire this useless POS.
