McCain: Hagel Will Probably Be Confirmed (but not with McCain's vote)


SAHIL KAPUR 11:25 AM EST, SUNDAY FEBRUARY 17, 2013

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) plans to vote against Chuck Hagel for the Pentagon's top job but he said Sunday that the former Republican senator will probably be confirmed.

"We will have a vote when we get back," McCain said on NBC's "Meet The Press." "And I'm confident that Senator Hagel will probably have the votes necessary to be confirmed as secretary of defense."

Asked if he plans to vote to confirm his old friend, McCain said, "No. I don't believe he is qualified. But I don't believe we should hold up his nomination any further."

1. John is consistent -

consistently nasty. He gives the term 'asshole' a whole new dimension.

2. Wonder what's going on behind the scenes (besides digging up every word

he has ever uttered and interviewing every woman who's ever worked for him) for these next ten days? Wonder if they're trying to get him to promise something budget or military-action-related (Syria?) in exchange for confirmation? I'll bet this sort of shit happens that none of us know about.

3. Can you imagine....

being Cindy McCain and having to put up with this nasty piece of work? I read that they have lived virtually separate lives for many years, and of course, there were all those rumors about her male friends. She had to have this guy, to the point that she destroyed his first marriage, but she certainly has paid for that mistake. He's a nightmare, and she's wise to stay as far away from him as possible.
