John McCain - an American treasure

John McCain is an American treasure - he is the quintessential image of the cranky old man, sitting on his porch, throwing stones at kids who dare to step on his lawn. A real American joke.

And he's a master of the Republican ability to argue by attacking instead of discussing facts. I will post this quote from Chris Hughes over and over again because it is so fitting...""Those who retreat into fantasy cannot be engaged in rational discussion, for fantasy is all that is left of their tattered self-esteem. When their myths are attacked as untrue it triggers not a discussion of facts and evidence but a ferocious emotional backlash." ---Chris Hedges, Truthdig
