    The link leads to HuffPo were the most read story is on Kim Kardasian, followed by stories on Kelly Ozborne and Chris Brown.

    TLwon’t R, but the author has a helluva pedigree

    Jon Ward, senior political reporter, was Washington Correspondent for The Daily. He was previously White House Correspondent for The Daily Caller. From 2007 to 2009 he covered the White House for The Washington Times

    I just saw a headline that said Gingrich is asking “what happened to John McCain?” I think That One will remain bitter vindtictive mercurial vainglorious erratic old man’s resentment number one, but there is popcorn potential in a Gingrich/McCain/Pittypat/Paultard pissing match. Could last for weeks.

    And Willard’s brother might run for Levin’s MI seat.

    No matter the location, McCain has always run toward a fight. He likes to mix it up. It’s why he was a Navy fighter pilot.

    This has always been so annoying.

    He wasn’t a fighter pilot. He was a bomber pilot.

    And not a very good one in any case.

    Watching “Eleventh Commannt” Ronnie’s tattered corpse plus mantle being used as the chew toy of contention between Battling Republican Heirs is going to prove no end amusing.

    “I think it can be harmful if there is a belief among the American people that those people are reflective of the views of the majority of Republicans. They’re not,” he continued.

    Apparently Grampa doesn’t Stand with Rand. Won’t he have egg on his face when the United Nations uses Black Drones to overthrow the government and replace it with Hollyweird-approved Mud-people Suzerainty.

    Love the title, John, one of my favorite songs. The HuffPost thing was extremely amateurish and boring by modern reportorial standards.

    And by the way, McCain was one of the worst pilots of the Vietnam War – an entitled jerk and a big risk taker, which is how he got shot down in the first place.

    Oh my god. Concerned about overstaying his welcome in the Senate? Angry Old White Guy seems to possess not an ounce of self awareness.

    The first time ever I saw your face
    I tried not to vomit from the sca-a-a-a-a-ars
    And the divot where the cancer grew
    And the cold and rheumy eyes, my love…
