There have been several articles uncovering what a real sh*t head McCain is and has been all his life. Even Rolling Stone pounds this lying SOS for his rotten history, personality, ethical lapses and mean existence.
Personally don't understand why Arizona keeps sending him to DC. He's an embarrassment. And that's the best that I can say about him.
Captain Queeg gets in every time same reason Sheets Byrd used to - he brings home the bacon for the state, and has his constituents buffaloed that they won't get any "fragrant grease" (apologies to Tai Pan) without him.
McCain will be dead and mouldering in his grave soon.....and people will say john who?
J... is partially correct but there is a second part of it.
It is just out of collective guilt today we cannot critcize a Vietnam Vet.. The same is happenig today because of how the Vietnam vets were not appreciated.
The same thing about donot criticize O because of his ethnicity.
I agree with that point.
From the 'Crash McCain' link in Watcher's OP:
"Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly?" McCain asked. "Because her father is Janet Reno!"
Say what you will about Crash, there is a tiny bit of honor reserved for anyone who can tell a joke that's still funny, all these years later.
Fast forward to the Trump 'he's no hero' kerfuffle of a few months ago. There isn't a single, senior senator or a single, senior Washington correspondent who isn't familiar with the Rolling Stone's expose from 2008. None would stand to defend Trump while he was absolutely right. I remembered it and cited it here, though I mischaracterized the Forrestal incident as McCain crashing on to it's deck.
Read it through and get an idea of how DC and turds like McCain work and learn what Trump is up against. Somehow, two (at least) paragraphs are out of sequence. The second deals with Annapolis graduation, which appears early in the article, and the first deals with the Forrestal conflagration, which comes later in the article. A third, possibly, deals with McNasty's wimmens.
JM spoiled brat
In the Senate — where, according to former GOP Sen. Bob Smith, McCain has "very few friends" — his volcanic temper has repeatedly led to explosive altercations with colleagues and constituents alike. In 1992, McCain got into a heated exchange with Sen. Chuck Grassley over the fate of missing American servicemen in Vietnam. "Are you calling me stupid?" Grassley demanded. "No, I'm calling you a fucking jerk!" yelled McCain. Sen. Bob Kerrey later told reporters that he feared McCain was "going to head-butt Grassley and drive the cartilage in his nose into his brain." The two were separated before they came to blows.
Several years later, during another debate over servicemen missing in action, an elderly mother of an MIA soldier rolled up to McCain in her wheelchair to speak to him about her son's case. According to witnesses, McCain grew enraged, raising his hand as if to strike her before pushing her wheelchair away.
McCain has called Paul Weyrich, who helped steer the Republican Party to the right, a "pompous self-serving son of a bitch" who "possesses the attributes of a Dickensian villain." In 1999, he told Sen. Pete Domenici, the Republican chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, that "only an asshole would put together a budget like this."
Last year, after barging into a bipartisan meeting on immigration legislation and attempting to seize the reins, McCain was called out by fellow GOP Sen. John Cornyn of Texas. "Wait a second here," Cornyn said. "I've been sitting in here for all of these negotiations and you just parachute in here on the last day. You're out of line." McCain exploded: "Fuck you! I know more about this than anyone in the room." The incident foreshadowed McCain's 11th-hour theatrics in September, when he abruptly "suspended" his campaign and inserted himself into the Wall Street bailout debate at the last minute, just as congressional leaders were attempting to finalize a bipartisan agreement.
At least three of McCain's GOP colleagues have gone on record to say that they consider him temperamentally unsuited to be commander in chief. Smith, the former senator from New Hampshire, has said that McCain's "temper would place this country at risk in international affairs, and the world perhaps in danger. In my mind, it should disqualify him." Sen. Domenici of New Mexico has said he doesn't "want this guy anywhere near a trigger." And Sen. Thad Cochran of Mississippi weighed in that "the thought of his being president sends a cold chill down my spine. He is erratic. He is hotheaded."
McCain's frequently inappropriate humor has also led many to question his self-control. In 1998, the senator told a joke about President Clinton's teenage daughter at a GOP fundraiser. "Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly?" McCain asked. "Because her father is Janet Reno!"
Her father is Web Hubbell. Look at their photos side by side.
Interesting. Sounds like he has a lot in common with Governor LePage. Of course, you turds think the latter speaks candidly, without a politically correct filter. When the guv curses or makes an off-color joke, it's refreshing. JM? Not so much.
Of course, what else would I expect from Pom Pom wavers who think the bonespur-in-chief got it exactly right in saying JM is a loser.
Roll over, shithead.
Man I just love watching Matty's head explode. Christmas every freaking day.
Have Mommy send down some more Hot Pockets, Matty.

Mainelyin, this is actually fun. It's like watching Shakespeare in the defunded park, put on by a bunch of fourth graders.
And on Sunday I get a Swanson Hungryman dinner, usually Salisbury steak.
Put out the trash as soon as you are done eating.
Ok Bruce Rimshot on that one.
Thank you Al.
USS John McCain collides with merchant ship near Singapore; search and rescue underway
A Navy guided-missile destroyer, the USS John S. McCain, collided with a commercial vessel east of Singapore early Monday morning local time, the Navy said.
Godspeed to the ship and crew. Cheap shots directed to her namesake are still enabled.
Meanwhile, the USS Trump, a 6 1/2 foot dinghy with gold plated cleats, sits safely in dry dock, never having been deployed.
