26. Isn't he up for reelection in 2016?

i think he'll be knocked out in the primary then, he's just too damned old for another 6 year term. Then again, bad habits die hard in Arizona.

29. He might try to stay in the end. But I think that the good people of AZ need to rethink him.

2. Long since sick of him.

He shows up everywhere. I used to think Palin was the worst about wanting undue attention. Now, I see why he chose her as his running mate 4 years ago. He wanted someone to have attention grabbing contests with on TV. It is getting sort of deranged at this point how they both can't seem to STFU and fade into history like they are supposed to.

3. I had it with him that night in '04 that Shrub gave his nomination acceptance speech &

networks interviewed a glassy-eyed (CLEARLY drunk? or medicated?) and haughty McCain, absolutely dripping with condescension, who was all but masturbating on camera as he reviewed Prince Cutie-boots W's use of some of his, McCain's, talking points. In a word? SNOTTY!

4. Chris Hayes just played a clip of this asshole, following the '04 election, and he....

was singing a completely different tune. He was disparaging Democrats, and talking about sour grapes because of the election results. I know, can you believe it? It's well worth the time if you want look up the video clip.

McCain is quite possibly the biggest phoney in the US Senate today.

17. I agree. I always used to stick up for him because he spent 5 years in the Hanoi Hilton,

and I truly think we owe our vets respect at all costs. Especially our POW vets.

But I give up. I can't keep sticking up for him and saying, "Yes, but you have to speak respectfully about him around me because of his service to his country."

He's just too consistent, and seems to be just too intentional, in his assholery.

6. Was this found on FB? If so, glad it's getting played there and

now at DU. Steve Benen use to have a saying on Political Animal when he was there.. it went something like this.. "If it's Sunday it's john mccain on the Sunday Shows."

The ones who really need to see this are the honchos who book him.. America is fed up with his Lying gas bag ass.

7. He's up for re-election in 2016, when he'll be 80: I guess we might

have a chance to take him down then, but it would be a long shot, since he'll have been Arizona's senator nearly thirty years by then

11. For a guy who has been...

in the Senate for 30 years, McCain's legislative accomplishments are almost non-existent. Other than the now defunct McCain/Feingold law and a few bills concerning local Arizona issues, I really can't think of any other legislative accomplishments by McCain. Amazing he has been able to con Arizonians into voting for him time and time again.

12. I somehow thought I'd see a picture of that schmuck John Schnatter's mug in this thread

I finally got around to watching all the Star Trek movies recorded last week on my DVR. As I fast forwarded through the commercials I was literally stunned at how viral the Papa Johns commercials were: Like 1 or two ads EVERY freaking commercial break. Man, talk about "carpet bombing" ad campaigns!

He sucked at the Naval Academy, he sucked as a pilot, he sucked as a POW and now he sucks at a Senator.

I am open to any contradictory facts.

16. He was the North Vietnamese's songbird.

His war records were sealed. Someone needs get to the truth. The right went after John Kerry and he disproved everything they said. He was a real war hero.

How about we take a look at those sealed records if McCain is so interested in transparency?

I'm a veteran and McCain shames us.

19. My thoughts exactly!

You know...this clown - this empty-headed dunce, and the cry-baby whiner, lindsey graham - who honestly gives me the creeps just watching and listening to his syrupy voice and manner - are on EVERYWHERE...ALL THE TIME. WHY??

I honestly think the networks want to drive us nuts. This dip-shit never has anything worthwhile to listen to. Why not put on some Congressmen that we haven't heard from before?...or even a few that we maybe have heard from, but not EVERY FOOKIN' WEEK!

Beat me with a stick! It's painful to listen to this dunce...with his sheepish little chortle when he starts to fill his diapers.

20. God, people are fickle on here

McCain could come out with something semi reasonable next week and we would see a board full of posts praising his moderate stance. Sure, he seems to have a vendetta now and is acting like a clown. Let's not go stupid and slanderous on the guy's war record. His recent political stances re: Benghazi should be criticized. He clearly suffered in Vietnam and should be commended for his bravery there.

36. False equivalencies. Thousands went to Vietnam. Nothing to do with being a bloviating jerk

who gloated while bombing other human beings and merrily sending his military countryfolk to their potential death...and that's just for starters. And his war record isn't so good, either. Respect has to be earned and it can be lost...and he's pretty much cashed out his account, by my estimation.
