Wanker of the Day: John McCain

Jon Schwarz reposts an amazing comment from TPM Cafe about what a colossally bad idea attacking Iran would be.

Nevertheless, it's clear that we're the nation of bad ideas at this point. Check out John McCain, the "reasonable" Republican and probably their strong candidate for the 2008 presidency, regarding the recent airstrike in Pakistan:
"It's terrible when innocent people are killed. We regret that. But we have to do what we think is necessary to take out Al Qaeda, particularly the top operatives," US Senator John McCain told CBS television's "Face the Nation" program.

"We regret it. We understand the anger that people feel, but the United States' priorities are to get rid of Al Qaeda, and this was an effort to do so," the Republican lawmaker said.
This is merely a prelude to his asshat comment on Iran:
McCain also said Washington should be prepared to take military action if necessary against Iran, calling the standoff over Tehran's nuclear program the biggest international crisis in more than a decade.

"The military option is the last option but cannot be taken off of the table," he said.

"This is the most grave situation that we have faced since the end of the Cold War, absent the whole war on terror," the Republican lawmaker told CBS.
To quote Bart Simpson, "Nnyugh. ¬°Ay Caramba!"


operative word there being "faced" - we didn't choose to "face" the grave situations in rwanda and the sudan.

or that silly little thing between those two insignificant and nearly unpopulated nuclear powers just to the right of iran on the map. what were their names again? i've already forgotten.

to discover a person's character, time how quickly they cover their ass.
