Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Sun Feb 17, 2013, 07:00 PM

I am sick, sick, SICK of John McCain!!

I am sick of being held hostage to his grudges.

I am sick of hearing him steamroll anyone who doesn't agree with him.

I am sick of his strident attitude masking his lousy judgment.

I am sick of his mean, petty sense of humor.

I am sick unto DEATH of his willingness to stop us from getting our needs met in the name of his desire to be remembered as something he's not...relevant, important, and a politician who does anything but obstruct.


I've seen just about all I can watch of his smug, entitled face. I HOPE that the Arizona press is right in their positing that he may be nearing retirement because I need to live long enough to see John McCain and his ilk relegated to the dustbin of history!!

Thanks for listening. My last nerve has been singing all day and I needed some relief.

24. Hanoi Hilton does not give street cred

From what I've read, the Hanoi Hilton was the best place to be, if you were shot down and otherwise captured by the VC, the place where special cases were put for preferential treatment. McCain got there because his daddy was an admiral, I believe. Furthermore, the author of Flight of the Intruder posits that we shouldn't celebrate pilots for being shot down, because many of those pilots got shot down because of their own incompetence. Plus, who says he was tortured? Can we really accept McCain's testimony in such matters, given the dishonesty he has since displayed over the intervening decades?

He's even flip-flopped on the "enhanced interrogation" issue, hypocrite!

79. unbelievable?

Stephen Coonts may have written fiction, but he seems to be the real deal. From Wikipedia: "He entered the Navy the following year and flew an A-6 Intruder medium attack plane during the Vietnam War, where he served on two combat cruises aboard the USS Enterprise (CVN-65). He accumulated 1600 hours in the A-6 Intruder and earned a number of Navy commendations, including the Distinguished Flying Cross. (His navigator-bombardier was LTjg Stanley W. Bryant who later became a Rear Admiral and deputy commander-in-chief of the US naval forces in Europe.)

After the war Coonts served as a flight instructor for A-6 aircraft for two years, then did a tour as an assistant catapult and arresting gear officer aboard USS Nimitz (CVN-68)."

Pull your head out of the sand. Do the research on McCain. Telling me to self-delete is as bad as telling me "if you don't like this country, move out."

I do have some conjecture in my post, but have you ever heard of occam's razor?

and "preferential treatment."

Shit on his policies. Shit on his blustering. That's all fair game.

Unless you were there, don't shit on his flying or his torture. Baseless accusations are the fallback of a weak-minded idiot (I.e.: Tea Party) who can't go after somebody based on what they say and do. Given McCain's track record, you show some real lack of imagination and brainpower if you can't find something with evidence to give him shit about.

94. your source for quote regarding bamboo shoots?

And based upon who's testimony do you believe he had bamboo shoved under his fingernails? Please enlighten me. I don't want to be ignorant, nor do I wish to mindlessly perpetuate myths of heroism which are not deserved.

I do think it is appropriate to question fake war heros, to expose them even. Is it fair game to question Bush Sr's "heroism," given he allegedly bailed out of a damaged bomber instead of trying to land it, thus condemning a crew member to death? So now we have McCain, threatening to invade Iran, threatening to send many more people to an early grave. Should we not question his own heroism?

93. Sorry, but there is no need to lie about the man with revisionist history

John McCain was once upon a time an asset to the Senate, and deserved his medals or whatever it was he got for being a POW. He was maimed for life in the crash of his jet.

That was then.

He is now a cranky pain in the ass and a complete detriment to the governmental process.

This is now.

Distinguish between the two an you will gain more credibility here and elsewhere.

Some parts of his personal history are unsavory -- but he definitely was a POW, and calling a POW facility "the Hilton" is more an ironic statement than saying you got a mint on your fresh pillow each night.

59. I wouldn't put myself in that situation and if I did end up facing something like that....

I wouldn't come home and use it as an excuse to send others into the same situation. Heroes are people like John Kerry who face the horror and are brave enough to face the truth when it's over.


I am old enough to have friends who fought on the ground in that war and never glorify what they went through. To me John McCain was just a poor flyer who used his excellent connections to get into a plane and bomb a country full of peasants and he was proud of it. When he was shot down he failed to live up to the standards of his fellow POWS and made it home to call himself a hero for the rest of his life. Then proceeded to send as many young Americans into to every meat grinder of a war that he could help create.

I can't imagine anyone further from a hero. I'd pin a medal on any decent hard working American before I'd salute that old fart.

Imagine what it would be like to be married to this jerk. You would never be able to please him.

His time is short. He has passed only one piece of legislation in his entire time in office. He is nothing but a failure. From his personal life, his time on the Forrestall to his time in office to his failed bid for presidency.
Now all he can do is jump up and down and kick up dust as he slowly passes away. Can't wait for him to be gone. Why Graham sticks around with him is probably to pick up his supporters when McCane (sp intended) is gone.

77. Passed the wife once while she was out walking her dogs...

she looked more relieved to be out of the house than the dogs.

Hey,

Peace

30. Amen, nolabear

Have been posting all weekend trying to get folk to write to his office to tell him what you think. He probably will not change. Too old. But he might temper himself slightly if more folk write to express displeasure than the number of folk he hears from in the T-Pub 'base'.

He really is off his rocker.

32. I agree, and I think most people here think his behavior has become more radical

as of lately. He'll be 80 in 2016. I know many senators serve into their 80s, but maybe he'll decide to get out before he loses a senate race (losing for president is bad enough, but getting kicked out of the job you've had for a long time would be really embarrassing). He will have been in Congress for 36 years and in the Senate for 34 years. Someone definitely needs to give him the hint his time is up.

34. Ever see Annie Hall? When Woody Allen's character as a kid says about one of

his annoying relatives, "What an asshole!" He says it with such great expression. I always think of that when I see John McCain. Of course, he's worse than annoying, and worse than an asshole, but still...

hopefully STFU. He's boring, offtrack and a lose cannon full of negative energy. He brings no value to the table.

54. Needed to retire a decade ago.

It's difficult to figure how one becomes the elder statesman when you're wrong on issues 90% of the time. He's got a streak of animus that I've often figured to Be attributed to post traumatic stress disorder. His attack on Chuck Hagel borders on the absurd, Kinda like the " You Lie " guy. When you're busy venting your personal spleen, you're not serving America well, Nor the state of Arizona.

However, an irrationally angry, 76 year old is the perfect symbol of the current Republican Party. This is hardly the image they want or need to portray.

67. Whenever McCain is in the news, I remember the words of someone who served with him

in Vietnam: "Some of us were smart enough to not get caught."

Pretty much sums it up for me. McCain isn't worth listening to, and the fact that he chose nit wit Sarah Palin for his running mate proves he isn't smart enough to be given any responsibility, much less serve in Congress.

reality show called Meet the Press anyway. Isn't there any other person they could have on that show other than McCain or his boyfriend, Lindsay?

He offers less experience and comes across as a sheltered angry white bigot. These people are the reason that almost all of my long-time conservative family has leaned further and further left...they continue to be shocked at what comes out of their mouths.

76. Maybe we should start a campaign to convince the "Meet the Press" not to book him anymore.

I just did that on their Facebook page.

I swear, they have mccain on EVERY FRICKIN' SUNDAY!!! There isn't ONE other person out there they can find to book instead of him? Not ONE? With seven billion people on this planet, and at least 300 million people in this country, all they've got week-after-week is him?

He's done. He's bitter. He's a liar. He's a pissant. He's stale. He's over. SO over!

81. i feel better about myself

I have felt guilty for never liking him. All of my uncles fought in vietnam,and they came backall jacked up. Missing limbs, suicides, and all types of pain. But they never used it as a free pass to be jackasses. I would never suggest that he wasnt tortured,ever! But does that mean he can be a jerk to the rest of the country forever? Do we still owe him something like reparations? I hope that we can take up a collection as a nation and pay him to shut up! I have five dollars i am willing to contribute to the make Mccain go away fund. Maybe he can spend some time in Arizona?

Ok. Cheap shot, I know. Blame it on the stress of the campaign.

Still, the man should have had his Senate seat revoked solely on the basis of choosing Palin as a running mate. This act alone proves he is unfit to hold any public office.

88. John McCain was a traditor in Viet Nam and a crook in Arizona

I was a teacher in the 1970s in Virginia Beach, VA, in a high school that served Oceana Naval Air Base, then the largest air base in the world and the base that suffered the highest number of Viet Nam prisoners of war.

The students of returning Viet Nam POWs at the high school talked about their fathers' disgust for McCain, that McCain had sold them out to their captors. It was openly discussed that McCain should be court marshaled, but his father's position in the military saved him. He was a coward then as now.

Then there is his abandoning his sick wife to marry into a rich Arizona family.

Let us not forget was his huge role in the Keating savings and loan scandal (the Keating Five) while I was pursuing my PhD in Arizona in the 1980s. A major reason that McCain did not go to jail for his part--and his part was the largest of the five--was that the other four were Democratic senators in a Democratic-controlled Congress.

I know first hand that John McCain has no moral compass. Like George W Bush and Mitt Romney, he feels he is entitled.

John McCain is a myth. He has proved time and again that he is not a man!
