1. McCain is losing it

Maybe he's already lost it because he's certainly not the McCain of 2000 anymore. Could be the loss in '08. He's obviously embittered and looking for public relevance at every turn, like his Benghazi attacks, and now with ambushing Hagel on the "surge". Hagel was surprised by it, probably because he thought McCain was an ally because of his praise for him in 2000 but McCain has shown lately that you never know where he's going to come down on an issue.

Wait. I take that back. McCain comes down on the side that's going to give him maximum face time in the news cycles. It's just about predictable. He's the supreme attention whore and frankly, I think he'd curl up and whiter away if there is no grandstand for him to jump upon and pontificate and show how important he is, or as some might call it, show his ass.

2. If ever there was a poster child for "bitter old man syndrome"

it would be John McCain.

Then again, he always did have a nasty temper.

28. McCain has always been a "loose cannon". He only got into Annapolis by daddy's connections.

 

He graduated near the very bottom of his Annapolis class thanks to daddy too. He then went on to crash many planes trying to show off. He's a lifetime punk.

Hagel Takes On McCain: Calls Iraq War ‘Most Fundamentally Bad, Dangerous Decision Since Vietnam’http://thinkprogress.org/security/2013/01/31/1521781/hagel-mccain-iraq/

McCain is likely still pissed about that. Today, he's likely still cursing Hagel and mumbling.

9. McCain and his sidekick Lindsey.

Two of the more transparently partisan figures in Washington. Anyone watching them for any amount of time knows it. So why to they persist?

12. McCain has become a sad little man.

He has lost all of the the respect that this veteran once held for him.

How low can he go..... attacking "his friend" and decorated Vietnam combat vet Chuck Hagel.

He is the poster boy for "with friend like this you don't need enemies.

Combined with his buddy Graham I guess I should follow the old adage "don't get involved in a pissing match with a skunk.
In this case two.

Assholes!

14. Not to mention the irony of our side embracing Hagel.

*Voted with Republican Party 79.4% of 311 votes. (Sep 2007)
*90% conservative voting record; 95% support of Pres. Bush. (Dec 2006)
*Finalist on Bush VP list

They should not be shifting on a wim, because of which political party, suggests a candidate. I find that really shallow and hypocritical. What a toady.

23. I ran into gramps in a hotel in nashua nh back in the early 90s

He was sitting in the lobby, and he looked worn out and all sad sacked back then. He has to be about as bitter as they get, well not Romney bitter, but that is a whole other story.

31. The only difference? A Democrat wants Hagel, so it *must* be wrong!!!!

Republicans decide "right" and "wrong" not on the merit of an action, but on the political affiliation of the person performing the action.

the second picture is from 2008, well after the surge? Or is it 2006?

I can't quite read the date on the bottom.

36. I think it's time for a pacifier campaign

It would be great if we could organize a large national movement for every citizen to mail McCain a single pacifier.

It would be a beautiful message imo.
