Sen. McCain: Democrats are hypocrites

Senate Democrats took a historic step this afternoon, voting with a simple majority to implement the "nuclear option" - changing Senate rules so that only 51 votes are needed to approve some presidential nominees. In an interview with Wolf Blitzer, Sen. John McCain decries the move, accusing many Democrats of "outright hypocrisy."

    If McCain was ever right once about anything I might have an iota of respect for his opinion as it stands he was the man beaten by an AWOL Deserting coward named G.W.Bush and his own republican party labeled him nuttier than an out house rat. He is also the man who brought the USA, Sarah Palin (another nutty outhouse rat) to political forefront as his VP pick. She would have been a heart beat away from being President . McCain's judgement is certainly and will remain in question for the remainder of his life. I say Bravo to the democrats for finally doing what they should have done years ago. I wouldn't worry about Republicans ever gaining control of the Senate or ever winning the Whitehouse again. The party of old white men is surely dying off and anyone one with a brain will never again imperil the country with another Republican President. The George W. Bush Presidency effect on our country remains without a doubt the single most destructive event that has ever occurred to our country. More so than Pearl Harbor or 911. Democrats will hold the Senate, will hold the Presidency, and regain control of the house. The Republicans have insured their demise with constant lies, fake conspiracies, fake scandals and making their only uniting position... hate. They are simply...pathetic and McCain is in dreamland, thinking he ought to chime in as some kind of leader, when his past judgments have repeatedly display one undeniable characteristic and that is, how horrible his judgment is. Dems it looks like you finally did something right. What a beautiful world this could be, what a glorious time to be free. Ba da da da Ba da da da dat dat dat dat dat da
