Last Columnist Standing

Frank Rich might be the only establishment media columnist who isn't a bedwetting, thumbsucking, sack of squawking bones. Today's column is spot on and make a quick work of the tomfoolery that runs rampant in the modern pundit class.

With the exception of McCain’s imprisonment in Vietnam, every aspect of this
profile in courage is inaccurate or defunct.
McCain never called for Donald Rumsfeld to be fired and didn’t start criticizing
the war plan until late August 2003, nearly four months after “Mission Accomplished.” By then the growing insurgency was undeniable. On the day Hurricane Katrina hit, McCain laughed it up with the oblivious president at a birthday photo-op in Arizona. McCain didn’t get to New Orleans for another
six months
and didn’t sharply express public criticism of the Bush response to the calamity until this April, when he traveled to the Gulf Coast in desperate search of election-year pageantry surrounding him with black extras.

Even Rich, who can be one vicious bastard, is being too kind here. McCain is in bed and whoring himself to a bunch of War Criminals. John McCain does not deserve to be a Senator much less the President of this great country.
