A Maverick Atones

by evanmcmurry

Every once in a while, John McCain likes to remind us what kind of politician he could have been had he not found himself the head of a party of vipers, who bit him one early summer  four years ago, over and over and over again, until the venom soured his blood and he couldn’t be friends with Joe Lieberman or Jon Stewart anymore.

McCain took to the Senate floor during Wednesday’s Senate nappy time to defend Huma Abedin from Michelle Bachmann et al’s guilt-by-association letter that she was kinda Arab seeming therefore Muslim Brotherhood. Ordinarily I’d say deflating Michelle Bachmann’s crazy bubble is easy pickins, but the Distinguished Senator From Arizona is the one who gave us Sarah Palin, Queen of the False Syllogism, so instead I’m gonna peg this as the opening soliloquy to A Maverick Atones. McCain probably would have made a lousy president, but he still is much, much better than the Republicans who kept him from it.
