John McCain is Upset!

So upset that he made a speech that didn’t mention Trump by name:

John McCain is increasingly mad as hell about President Trump. And on Friday, he went after Trump — hard.

During a speech at the Munich Security Conference in Germany, the Republican senator from Arizona delivered a pointed and striking point-by-point takedown of Trump’s worldview and brand of nationalism. McCain didn’t mention Trump’s name once, but he didn’t have to.

And even considering the two men’s up-and-down history and the terrible things Trump has said about McCain, it was a striking display from a senior leader of a party when it comes to a president of the same party.

That’s Aaron Blake, of “The Fix” at the Washington Post.  I subscribe to the Post, and I think Marty Baron’s news crew has been doing the best reporting on Trump of any US newspaper.  But “The Fix”, led by the execrable Chris Cillizza, is like the wedding announcements in the NY Times, the Oscar coverage of the LA Times, or the Mardi Gras coverage of the Times-Picayune: a regrettable, provincial placeholder that pays the bills generated by the real reporters.

If John McCain–an 80 year-old who has probably just started his last term in the Senate–lacks the moral courage to call out our Russian traitor President by name, then fuck him and the horse he rode in on. I honestly lack the imagination to understand why an 80 year-old patriot who suffered for our country wouldn’t be in the vanguard of those calling for an investigation of Trump’s ties to Russia.  What the hell does he have to lose?  After choosing Palin, leading the charge against Trump could be the move that rehabilitates his legacy.  Instead, we get this sniveling, indirect, cowardly horseshit.

    He was in Munich, in front of an international audience. Mentioning Trump by name would have opened the door for misdirection and blaming. If it had been Obama making the speech and not McCain, I would bet that he wouldn’t have mentioned him by name. If it had been Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton, I bet they wouldn’t have mentioned him by name either.

    This entire operation that Putin pulled off must count as one of the most successful decapitation strikes in all of history. The Russians managed to kill off the entire executive branch with one missile.

    Then everyone in the Capitol looked at the damage and decided that being killed by Russians was a really awesome, cool thing, so they all committed suicide.

    Can we have a remake of “Red Dawn” where all of the gun-humpers decide that they love the Russians? Because that’s what we’re living through, and I would rather have it on the screen so I can turn it off.

    @Peale: He just voted for almost all of his cabinet appointments after McCain blasted him for being a POW during Vietnam. Lets just be clear here at this point; the GOP sees a very small window to enact their regressive and anti-middle class campaign promises, and the ability to cement it by packing the courts with Roberts Jr.s and Alito Jr.s to ensure that it stays put for a generation or so. Its clear that they sold their souls to the 0.001% so that they can make 1.2 billion in profits in the first quarter of any fiscal year, as opposed to 1.05 billion in profits over the same quarter.

    Russia must have found something truly awful in those RNC emails they stole.

    Keep in mind, McCain got elected after ditching his wife who had waited faithfully for him through Vietnam for his mistress and never suffered any repercussions or remorse whatsoever.

    So whatever it is has to be more morally reprehensible then that.

    I’d also like some background on the GOP leadership’s decision to back Trump no matter what, and who is chiefly responsible for enforcing discipline.

    ETA: Back when McCain was running for president, there was some concern that he might die in office, elevating the empty headed Sarah Palin to the presidency. But McCain’s 105 year old mother is still alive and thriving, and her twin sister died at age 99. McCain might be good for a few more Senate terms.

    What’s behind it all? Who knows? Right now my half educated guess is oil lease deals and sanctions and how little problems might be fixed. All for naught in the big picture, if we can keep the ship from turning completely around. Solar will become increasingly cheaper than fiosil fuels.

    But McCain is sadder because the other Republicans tried to knock him out of the South Carolina primary by telling voters that he had fathered a black baby. So he at least has seen their vile racism second hand.

    Of course, he bought into all their bullshit to pursue the presidency in 2008. Sold what was left of his soul. Now, any honor is a phony show, going through the motions.

    I’ll take the Oscar coverage of the LA Times, and the Mardi Gras coverage of the Times-Picayune anytime over than the fucking Fix. Chris Cillizza and John McCaln are worthless, clueless tools.

    @Ruckus: I give him credit for serving during Vietnam which Dubbya couldn’t even bother doing correctly in the National Guard. Also,while I completely disagree with pretty much all his political positions, I don’t think he’s just plain stupid and lacking curiosity like Dubbya. That makes him a little better than Dubbya.
    There was a big piece years ago during one of his non presidential elections on how he treated his first wife in the Phoenix New Times. He was an asshole to her and I think she had to sign a NDA for her to continue to get healthcare(I think she had chronic stuff.) When you treat your wife who waited for you for years to come back from Vietnam like that you are a worthless POS.

    I don’t know about McCain being smarter than W. While it’s true that W didn’t understand the difference between Sunni and Shia after 9-11, McCain was talking about the Iranians supplying AQ during the ’08 campaign. There’s no excuse for that kind of ignorance 5 years into a war that he was anxious to see go on for 100 years. I also read a long piece years ago about the financial crisis that was very unkind to McCain. Paulson and Bernake talk openly about his ignorance. They were very complimentary about Obama’s sophisticated understanding of the situation, and had no problem with W’s ability to get what was going on. But McCain? He was incapable of even asking intelligent questions because he was so clueless.

    @oldster:

    Can we have a remake of “Red Dawn” where all of the gun-humpers decide that they love the Russians?

    If they remade Red Dawn now, it would be the Russians invading and the ammosexuals join with them to hunt down and murder libruls.

    Chris, the night of the fight, you may feel a slight sting. That’s pride fucking with you. Fuck pride. Pride only hurts. It never helps. You fight through that shit. This business is filled to the brim with unrealistic motherfuckers. Motherfuckers who think their ass will age like wine. If you mean it turns to vinegar…it does. If you mean it gets better with age…it don’t. We cool?

    This is an advance. Not a spring into the middle guns–a-blazin’. His step forward encourages. Be patient. This will not happen overnight. Allow him the space to move. Encourage.
