McCarthy doesn't have much use for McCain. Rightly so.
There is a stubborn fact Republicans may want to consider as McCain,
their wayward foreign-policy guru, tries to browbeat them into Libya Act
II — because, you know, Act I has worked out so well. It is this: The
Obama administration’s shocking derelictions of duty in connection with
the Benghazi massacre cannot erase the GOP fingerprints all over the
Libyan debacle. Obama is the one who took us over the cliff, but only
after McCain shoved him to the very edge.
Obama’s Libya war, which
the president was pleased to lead from behind while McCain whirled in
front, was not authorized by Congress. This was fine by McCain, who
declared that saving Benghazi
was too important to delay over such constitutional trivia as a green
light from the American people’s representatives. After all, what would
America have done without Benghazi? So Libya now stands as a treacherous
precedent that a president may unilaterally take us to war, in
consultation with the Arab League’s Islamist regimes, under
circumstances in which not only are there no vital American interests to
be served but our intervention actually disserves our interests by
empowering America’s enemies.
Too bad that McCain cannot distinguish one from the other. All he knows is war, and it's beginning to look like he loves what he knows.
Too bad for G I Joe.

We agree on McCain.
Yes, but unlike daddio, we've never cast a vote for him.
I wouldn't assume that he has.
Stop patronizing the ole bloke. You know damn well he pulled the lever for McCain. After all, their wartime records match up.
As in, both were such piss poor military men the enemy had zero problem locating and imprisoning them.
