The Jaker

Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

F.U. John McCain
To Democrats:
McCain's a war hero and a stand-up guy, but don't forget what side he's on.

On the Senate floor Wednesday, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., suggested Democrats are sore losers. Rice had enough votes to win confirmation, as even her Democratic critics acknowledge, McCain said.

"So I wonder why we are starting this new Congress with a protracted debate about a foregone conclusion," McCain said. Since Rice is qualified for the job, he said, "I can only conclude that we are doing this for no other reason than because of lingering bitterness over the outcome of the election."

    Yahoo edited the article. The McCain comments are real. See this one:

    This is another reason to avoid Yahoo News. They also post articles from the AP and UPI which are uncredited, with no named author, hence they are as suspect as republican intentions, just like the USA Today article you linked to.

    I checked the quote in Google, so you are vindicated; yes, he said it. Shouldn't we all try to get along? especially in these trying times??
