I used to like John McCain. Not that I wanted him to be President, but I thought back in early 2000 that if we were to have a Republican President, I would rather it be him an not that creepy stupid cokehead drydrunk fool we got now.
But the last tiny speck of respect for McCain is gone now. Today, to prove that it's safe to walk through a Bagdhad neighborhood, he did so, accompanied by “100 American soldiers, with three Blackhawk helicopters, and two Apache gunships overhead.” He also wore a bullet proof vest, but no helmet, because he's WALNUTS!
And then... "it didn't take the insurgents long to send their reply. Less then 30 minutes after McCain wrapped up, a barrage of half a dozen mortars peppered the boundaries of the Green Zone, where the senators held their press conference."
