With a friend like John McCain, you have no need for enemies

Ask Chuck Hagel.

John McCain is lower than whale shit.





Disclaimer: I am not enamored with Hagel as SecDef. There are *plenty* of better choices.

1. Name better choices--better than the guy who sat on that panel today and kept his cool

under eight hours of hostility, and still maintains that Iraq was the wrong thing to do.

2. His antigay views are no longer military policy

so he can't do a hell of a lot of damage there. Women have been cleared for combat theater jobs they qualify for, so he can't do much damage there, either.

What he can do is take on that cadre of war crazed neocons over at the Pentagon and I think he will do a decent job of it. He is opposed to any intervention in Iran, for instance, and we need that desperately right now. He's a tough old bastard with direct experience of what war really means, unlike the bloodless idiots who want to declare war on Iran just because.

I can think of a few people who I'd like better. However, he's the choice and he's got a few good points in his favor, unlike anyone the Republicans would approve of.

3. McCain has no friends

He's a mean old man whose brain doesn't work very well.

4. In 2000 when running for POTUS McCain said he would name Hagel as Defense secretary.

5. Yup, the same Chuck Hagel . . . who was also McCain's national campaign co-chair.

Go figure, huh?
