John McCain is the single greatest political leader of our time (now they're going over the top!)

At long last, have they left no sense of decency?

White House official Kelly Sadler, during a meeting Thursday, had this to say about Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) for opposing President Trump’s CIA nominee over her failure to condemn torture: “It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway.”

Some more..........

“John McCain is the single greatest political leader of our time. He is, in a way, not of our time, for his creed — country before self — is unfamiliar to many who serve in office and utterly foreign to the man in charge.

Only once during the nearly quarter of a century I’ve been covering politics did I think I could work for a politician, and that politician was McCain. I first got to know him in early 1999, when there were just a few of us driving around New Hampshire with him in an SUV, before the “Straight Talk Express” rolled. Had he beaten George W. Bush (he surely would have defeated Al Gore), and had he been president on Sept. 11, 2001, I know he would have done great things with the national unity Bush ultimately squandered.”

Another young-un.

They don’t want anyone to speak unkindly of mccain... but on the medical he is receiving.... he came back to Washington just to say NO and kill the attempt to stop/end obamacare. So how many are there out there who are worse off now and need insurance that could have been available if Trump had been able to sweep through his plans.

mc cain is one vindictive individual and it’s all aimed at Trump. That is hate he needs to get rid of before he finds out which place he will spend eternity. When one has some time left, it’s a good time to make things right... mccain is not doing that as far as I can see.

“...his creed — country before self ...”
************************************
The writer is clearly thinking of a John McCain other than the self-centered Senator from Arizona.

Just amazing. You mean for the purpose of this little supplication and insult exercise John McCain actually supplants Barack Obama as the greatest leader ever in American history? You mean like forever, or for the 3 minutes after I read this article? Or do I get to go to the bathroom first and vomit into the toilet? When you get an extremely low Talent writer like Dana Milbank on a topic like this you are really scraping the bottom of the idiot Barrel.

All I know is McCain wants to create a vibe around himself and attack Gov. Palin and President Trump at the same time.

Go ahead with your inner moonbat John, history is recording.

Apparently Mr. Milbank wants to be invited to the funeral, although most people would not take being called the best politician as a compliment.

Keep in mind that Songbird’s job in 2008 was to make sure that illegal alien Barry Soetoro became president and now his job is to destroy the presidency of Donald Trump.

The thing about McCain....you could sit there on the day he finished college....number 893 out 899 students, and predict that he was a slow-student with no real capability, and view McCain today to agree.

Keeping that job at WAPO must be tough.

I’ll bet they have knee-pads in the first-aid box.

Dana Milbank is full of $hit.

The Gang of 14,The Keating 5, the continuous ruination of conservative policy legislation in the Senate etc...

The final straw for me was McCain’s vote against the repeal of Obama care, cast out of spite, not because he cared anything about the bogus replacement bill drafted by Ryan and his cronies..

Then there was the boondoggle million dollar arms fiasco through Obama in Syria where a cadre of men of this bogus Syrian “resistance” made themselves rich selling the McCain armaments on the black market to ISIS.

The list goes on and on.

McCain’s disrespectful comments from his bitter death bed about Sarah Palin assure McCain will go down in history as a POS with a POS legacy......a loser.

And no one did it to him, not Donald Trump for sure.

John McCain did it to himself.

The media always liked McCain for various reasons. I understand he sat on committees involved in media regulation so the big media companies fawned over him for that alone.

The left leaning journalists liked him because he would attack fellow Republicans and now like him more than ever because of his visceral hatred of Donald Trump.
