Those bastards at Wikileaks have really done it this time! That commie-pinko outfit has gone and released a memo that besmirched the character of a true American legend (at least in his own mind), John McCain. Have they no sense of decency?
McCain is crustier than an Arizona Gila Monster, and just about as friendly. He has his angry-old-man routine refined to an art form and is quick to rant, snort, or explode with expletives at the slightest of provocations. This is especially true when it comes to military matters. The former naval aviator and son and grandson of admirals, feels that he has the best military instincts since Stonewall Jackson, and he damned sure knows more than that whipper-snapper living in the White House.
Remember when he sang Bomb, Bomb, Bomb - Bomb, Bomb Iran to a political gathering a few years ago? Johnny-boy was serious. His mama didn't raise no community organizers!
Now, however, it looks like Arizona's senior senator may have driven his Humvee into a ditch. For the past month John McCain has been lobbing verbal grenades at the President saying that yes, while Libya may be falling to the rebels, if the United States (the broke United States) had sent our military in to help, Gadaffi would have collapsed sooner.
Okay, the crabby old fart is a sore loser. I get that.
This week, though, John McCain's bellicosity got broadsided by the aforementioned leak from Wikileaks. A diplomatic cable was released by the whistle blower organization that showed McCain and his geriatric gang - Senator Lindsey Graham and Senator Joe Liebermann - met with the despot Gadaffi in Libya in 2009, and at that time McCain offered to help him get weapons from the United States. And to frost that cake, McCain then went to his Twitter account and tweeted that he found Gadaffi to be an "interesting" man.
Slippery John has, of course, been blathering denials all week. He even denied the tweet, which is a matter of public record accessible to anyone with a computer.
John, sadly the mind is often the first to go - but that still should not impact the quality of your work as a senator!
(Note 1: In fairness to Moe and Curly and Larry, a fourth senator - Susan Collins of Maine - was also on the taxpayer-paid junket to Libya. She was probably the gang's gun moll!)
(Note 2: I really wanted to title this piece "McCain's Insane Clown Posse," but didn't want to run the risk of pissing off some musicians who have never offended me.)
