For a long time, I've considered John McCain a decent man.
But his recent rant about the President and Iran is shameful.
McCain and the Repugs are using the people of Iran to further their own perverted ideology of power and domination, an ideology that has proved utterly bankrupt.
On the other hand, Obama's restrained and patient approach bodes well for the future. We can't and we don't control the world. We are but one nation among all the others. Though larger than most, and surely one of the most powerful, we're not the king of the hill, though such a thought utterly galls a poor man like McCain who is, and this I've contended for years, still fighting Vietnam, trying to reclaim a glory he perceives us to have lost in Vietnam.
That the Repugs have sunk this low is hard to imagine.
The party of Lincoln, not to mention Eisenhower, has sunk very low, indeed.
