We should all heed the old hunter's advice about approaching a wounded animal. Having written that no one should take pleasure in Senator McCain's possibly fatal brain malignancy, he gives us all a reminder of just why so many people hate him so much.
This is an interesting historical moment. The senior congressional leadership of the GOP is now revealed to be what some of us of said for a long while. They are posturing, careerist poltroons who mean not a word they say. It's particularly poignant that McCain complains about the populist radio ranters like Limbaugh. Sure they're idiots, but they represent millions of formerly trusting GOP voters that the McCains, Grahams, and other GOP establishment types have been gulling for time out of mind.
It was inevitable that at some point all those endlessly deceived voters would turn to an outsider. Enter Trump.

McCain and company find themselves exposed as the enemy of the very things they claimed to deliver. It remains to be seen if they are willing to make a stab at making their lies into truths, or if they prefer to maintain control of a party that no longer has a purpose.
I still won't root for the cancer, not because we need any more of McCain, no, it's just out of common Christian charity.
