mccain's mean-spirited attack on Susan Rice.

what a dick.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said on Wednesday that U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice is “not qualified” to become secretary of state and he called her claim that the deadly attack on the diplomatic facility in Benghazi was a spontaneous demonstration “not very bright.”

“She’s not qualified,” McCain said on CBS’s “This Morning.” “Anyone who goes on national television and in defiance of the facts, five days later — We’re all responsible for what we say and what we do. I’m responsible to my voters. She’s responsible to the Senate of the United States. We have our responsibility for advice and consent.”

Sen. John Kerry is quickly emerging as the favorite of most senators to replace Hillary Clinton at State. Beyond their closer relationship with the Massachusetts lawmaker and chair of the Foreign Relations Committee, many GOP senators remain angry about Rice claiming, in the days after the Benghazi attacks that killed four Americans, that the assault grew out of a spontaneous demonstration sparked by an anti-Islam film.

CIA-supplied talking points backed up what Rice said on the Sunday shows after the attack, according to a Washington Post report. But McCain said that was irrelevant.

1. What a braying ASS.

McCain, no one gives a flying fig what you or your other two simpering minces think. He and Graham need to find something constructive to do. Maybe throw a going away tea for Lieberman or something? Anything - just STFU.

14. I think McCain and others want

John Kerry out of the Senate, and the way they are going about it is to convince people that Rice is unqualified to be SOS.
