Sad, sad stuff out of Senator McCain’s office today. The longtime Arizona Senator and 2008 Republican presidential nominee has been diagnosed with brain cancer. He had an operation a few days ago to have a blood clot removed. Terrible stuff. McCain is a war hero; couldn’t have gone through worse shit as a POW for fighting for and protecting his country. A true hero’s hero.
I’ve always liked McCain. Who hasn’t? He’s soft-spoken, kind, thoughtful, and quite literally has committed his ENTIRE ADULT LIFE to serving the United States of America. What a legend.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention how big of an asshole I feel like. During the Comey hearings last month, he had a few bizarre moments. Had some confusing moments. He wasn’t making a ton of sense. I’m not sure if it was all directly related or not — I’m sure it was — but I feel bad. I made a couple of jokes, and for that I feel like an asshole. Senator McCain, I apologize. I am very sorry.
Thoughts and prayers with one of this generation’s great American public servants. What an awesome man.
