McCain’s obscene hypocrisy


He says Susan Rice is unfit for office because she's "not qualified." This from the man who tapped Sarah Palin

BY KATIE, FEMINISTING


Shockingly, old white male senators are attacking a woman of color in a powerful position. The men in question are Sens. Lindsey Graham and John McCain. And the woman they’re attacking is U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice. John “I’m still bitter about losing to Obama” McCain said Rice is “not qualified” to become secretary of state and described her comments on Benghazi as “not being very bright.” Lindsey “Republicans are not generating enough angry white guys“ Graham said he was “dead-set on making sure” Rice doesn’t become secretary of state and called her response “so disconnected to reality I don’t trust her … And the reason I don’t trust her is because I think she knew better, and if she didn’t know better she shouldn’t be the voice of America.”

But some brave congresswomen came to Rice’s defense and called out Graham and McCain at a news conference on Friday led by Reps. Gwen Moore (Wis.), Marcia L. Fudge (Ohio), Karen Bass (Calif.), Eleanor Holmes Norton (Del-District of Columbia) and Terri Sewell (Ala.). Rep Holmes Norton opened the conference:

We do not intend to stand by while Ambassador Susan Rice, who had nothing to do with the Benghazi attack and its aftermath, is made the scapegoat of the tragedy because she relayed to the public the only official intelligence that was available to the administration at the time. The rush to judgment against the Ambassador is particularly unprofessional and reckless, considering that the intelligence irrefutably documents her public remarks. We will not allow a brilliant public servant’s record to be mugged, to cut off her consideration to become secretary of state.

2. Seems like Republicans take umbrage

Over the truth we say about them. And an elephant never forgets. They save the phrases to turn them back on us later, when they think they see a parallel. They just have a Hell of a time trying to call our pres a chimp or our women not too bright. Turn about is not always fair play. Juveniles.
