“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

John McCain, a little too mavericky for his own good

Will all due respect for his 5 years being tortured in the Hanoi Hilton, John McCain's time is about up pretending to be a knowledgeable politician with particular insight into what the US should or should not do in hot-spots around the world. It seems his advice is always to intervene.

When he pressed the JCS for why the Pentagon hadn't already proposed a no-fly zone in Syria, the JCS humiliated J-Mac by pointing out the it would cost $1Billiion a month, would likely result in American forces on the ground there, and would accomplish nothing because Assad hasn't deployed the Syrian Air Force against the rebels....he uses artillery and other ground assault methods.

Add this embarrassment to McCain announcing that the US could easily identify the bad guys in Syria even as he unwittingly met with members of Al Qaeda posing as rebels in Syria, and you have a mavericky politician whose too old and useless to do anything useful. He needs to retire.

Time for him to go home. I thought this as I walked by his office today.

By the way I was looking for THE orifice for a giant Fleet enema.
