Gramps McCain loses it when asked why he missed classified briefing on Benghazi [View all]

CNN caught up with McGrumpy in the halls of the Senate and asked him why he did not attend the top level, classified briefing on the Benghazi incident today. McCain refused to answer and when pressed he damn near spit out his dentures ranting about being "badgered" by the reporter asking the question.

What a colossal douchebag!

Asked why he wouldn't comment, McCain grew agitated: "Because I have the right as a senator to have no comment and who the hell are you to tell me I can or not?

When CNN noted that McCain had missed a key meeting on a subject the senator has been intensely upset about, McCain said, "I'm upset that you keep badgering me."

While McCain refused to shed light on why he didn't show, his spokesman Brian Rogers emailed CNN a short time later with an explanation. He blamed it on a "scheduling error" but wouldn't provide any more detail.

According to a Democratic aide on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, only three of the eight GOP members of the committee attended the two hour briefing that ran from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET. By contrast, seven of the nine Democratic members were there. McCain's press conference took place at noon.
