15. McCain: "Surprised" Cloud Did Not Shout Back at Him

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) released a statement on Tuesday in which he responded to reports that he had ranted incoherently at a cloud floating overhead while he was standing outside the Capitol Building on Monday afternoon.

McCain said the cloud's "refusal to respond to my inquiries on behalf of the American people" is "tantamount to a cover-up."

The statement:

“I am somewhat surprised and frustrated that the cloud from which I was demanding answers refused to respond to my inquiries about the Benghazi attack that Ambassador Susan Rice and other officials used in the early days after September 11, 2012. I participated in hours of yelling at numerous clouds last week, including a particularly uncooperative cumulonimbus formation, regarding the events in Benghazi. Multiple upper atmosphere phenomena were asked this very question, and all of them – including a cirrus cloud positioned directly over the office of the Director of National Intelligence himself – would not say a word. Now we have to read the answers to our questions in the Drudge Report. There are many other questions that remain unanswered -- where is the silver lining for the GOP following the ignominious election defeats of 2012? Why do they constantly rain on my parade? This latest episode is another reason why many of us are so frustrated with, and suspicious of, the actions of clouds when it comes to the Benghazi attack.”
