I emailed McCain:

Dear Senator: I am appalled at your dishonorable use of the filibuster to delay the appointment of Senator Hagel. You have made us the laughing stock of the world. Have you no shame? You are no longer the hero youonce were!
Embarrassed for You

McCain would like to think he is still relevant. He hasn't been relevant since he picked Palin as a running mate.

Shoot, he should have done that before 2008.

Hagel spoke against the Iraq War..fancy that..a War we should never have been fighting, a war that has crippled us with debt, a war that diverted us from our search for Osama bin laden, and from Afganistan, and one that has cost countless lives and needless suffering, and gave al Quaida an in there they hadn't had previously. Gee (she sez, sarcastically), what sane military person would ever object to all that wonderfulness? I think John McCain is getting senile..he's the one who needs to stand down and go home.

If you are talking about the Hagel nomination, either McCain or Graham has stated that they are holding it up out of "revenge" over something Hagel said or did way back when...you know how kids like to hold grudges....

They always find some way to manipulate themselves out of doing any real work..one can almost hear the "nanner nanner nanner" as they go out the door. We pay these people to run our Nation? But why...?

What is that about? These guys have the honor and maturity of a jackal! (Sorry jackal...I know you have your place and I don't mean to malign you!)
