One day, if he's blessed to live long enough, John McCain will retire from the Senate

And like many statesmen before him, he might get the idea to publish his memoirs of his time as a lawmaker and politician.

In those pages he'll seek to justify why he chose an incompetent grifter to fill the second highest office in the land, his loss to the first black president of the United States and his subsequent petulance and utter contempt for that black president and his staff.

Of course, he'll explain to whomever reads his words that all of his actions and words were all reasonable and necessary…

That reader, if they have at least two working brain cells to rub together and a minimum amount of decency will say to themselves, "Complete Bullshit!"

2. I don't want him to retire, I want him to lose reelection by a massive landslide.

He's the nation's all-time sore loser.

5. Book names that come to mind: McCain...from Privilege to Petulance

McCain...from Arrogance to Adultery to Acrimony
McCain...from History's Destiny to History's Dustpan

Surely there are more suggestions.

7. As I postulated elsewhere, I thought he had one of two reasons:

1. He was out of his ever loving mind.

2. He didn't want to win--he picked her to sabotage the campaign while pretending to be forward-looking and equality-minded.

Who knows? I'd buy the book, though, to just find out! I probably wouldn't pay full price for it (used in the paperback edition, I'm thinking), but what the heck!

8. Once upon a time John McCain was an honorable human.......

Now?
Now, John McCain needs to find some quiet fishing lake where he can vent his "crazy old man" rabbling into the bait bucket.

11. He was a victim-doesn't make him honorable.

As for the book he might or might not write (or have ghostwritten)-he'll have to live off of his advance and Cindy's money. I won't spend a penny.

9. He will NEVER quit or retire

In the "Game Change" book and movie, he said to another character that his dad died a very short time after retiring and that is why he wouldn't retire. Sounded true to me, given his ego.

He has some very real mental issues IMO, which are becoming more evident every day. His recent petulant, corrosive treatment of an old friend (Hagel) in front of the nation and world was truly bizarre and not a little scary.
