Now I understand why the left-wing media is going bananas over a man they despised right up until the Trump era...


Here’s an example of the (actual) left not going bananas over McCain:

He also co-sponsored the war in Iraq. Well, maybe not literally, but you get the point.

But alas he was as principled as dudes who love to wage war can be.

Most American wars have enjoyed broad bipartisan support (among politicians - not neccesarily the public)

 

Heck even Trump initially supported the Iraq War

I'm certain most Americans did, until they eventually found out their government lied to them.

Is McCain not on record multiple times saying that he profoundly regrets that the weapons of mass destruction information presented to the House and Senate was inaccurate?

Of course he is.

 

Indeed, McCain was bullshitted by the very same people that bullshitted the entire country ... and he manned up after the fact to admit he was bullshitted, and that his actions (ones taken based on that bullshit) were a huge regret for him.

 

The follow-ups to any anti-McCain anecdotes are equally as important as the anecdotes themselves.

McCain's version of a Beach Boys song.

 

Very funny. Fast-forward to 0:30 if you're short on time.

 

Oh, and when asked if he's embarassed about his little quip or whether he feels proud, he says ...proud. Watch here, and fast-forward to 0:15.

Bad joke gone flat ... like Trump hasn't experienced similar highly questionable verbal output?

 

Most people who walk the earth have had a similar experience ... not sure it means anything except bad timing and poor taste.

What does any of this have to do with Trump?

Everything ... as I noted in my post, most people who walk the face of the earth have told a joke in poor taste at some point in their lives ... including Trump, you, and me.

 

That bit of information also makes the fact that McCain also told a joke in poor taste at some point in his past completely irrelevant.

Benezet's link is pretty good. It should be read by anyone who has even a remote interest in the legacy of McCain.

Glad to see a hard-core socialist publication has made a positive impression on you! Keep reading, they really do go deep in their articles.
