Okay, countdown to the first bad joke by Trump about this in 3..2...
 
2017-09-25 09:30:24 AM  
When asked whether Trump ever apologized for saying he wasn't a war hero, McCain said no. He also emphasized he and Trump are from different backgrounds."I'd be glad to converse with him. But I also understand that we're very different people. Different upbringing. Different life experiences," McCain said. "He is in the business of making money and he has been successful both in television as well as Miss America and others. I was raised in a military family. I was raised in the concept and belief that duty, honor, country is the lodestar for the behavior that we have to exhibit every single day."And here we have the most subtle "FARK OFF, YOU FARKING ORANGE BUFFOON!!" you'll read all week.Brain cancer is a horrible way to go, too.  I've seen several people die from it.  You wouldn't wish cancer on anyone, but especially brain cancer.

Well that's going to be awkward, Trump giving McCain's eulogy after saying he doesn't like soldiers who get captured. Not awkward for Trump of course because he's a sociopath.

He might do it as a sort of gloating pissing on an enemies grave. Trump is that petty and self absorbed.

Mugato: Well that's going to be awkward, Trump giving McCain's eulogy after saying he doesn't like soldiers who get captured. Not awkward for Trump of course because he's a sociopath.


Trump at McCain's eulogy:  "And you know, after I said I only liked soldiers who didn't get captured, my campaign got its highest ratings.  HUUUGEST RATINGS EVER!"

Because, we know at the end of the day, it's all about Trump.

John should state specifically in his last wishes that Obama deliver his eulogy, because he prefers Presidents who didn't sell out our nation to Russia.

I saw that interview last night on 60 Minutes.
McCain gets chemo and radiation in the morning before he goes to work.
Badass is a bad muthaf*cker.

I came in here to do this. That was some very subtle shade thrown at Trump.

And you don't come back from glioblastoma. My best friend's dad went from Stage 3 to dead in less than four months.

nekom: Same thing Ted Kennedy had.  Yeah it's a bad one.


And same thing my dad had, who lasted exactly four months from the day he was diagnosed until the day he died. McCain obviously gets the very best health care and will probably live a bit longer than that, but really, all brain cancers are "very, very serious," though this one is one of the worst.

Fark cancer, but especially fark glio. That shiat is horrible. One of my best friends is a widow w/a 5 year old b/c of that shiat.

It took my uncle years ago, but he was in his 70's. He was a botonist with a wicked sense of humor and joked before he got very bad that it was ironic that the cancer would probably turn him into a vegetable before he died.

Only 5 percent of people diagnosed with this form of cancer live through it. And he's pretty old. I know he's tough, but damn, those are some really poor odds.

I would rather McCain not die horribly from cancer.

Although he's a horrible person 98% of the time.

I wouldn't invite #45.  A marine detail, and his widow or daughter can deliver the eulogy.  Maybe Obama, GWB, Bill Clinton can speak as well.

One of my dearest friends in law school died of brain cancer just a couple years after we graduated.

Of course, right now I'm trying to remain as quiet as possible so I don't disturb my wife, who's asleep, still recovering from her chemo appointment last Friday (advanced ovarian cancer - her prognosis is not good). So I am definitely not getting a kick out of these replies. I have held a generally low opinion of John McCain since his Keating 5 days, but in this regard I wish him the very best. No one deserves what he's going through.

I think it has something to do with copy/paste.  My line breaks always hang around, until I paste something into a post. Then it's 50/50 if all of the breaks disappear or not.

My advice to Sen. McCain- use your remaining time wisely, for maximum stigginit to Twitler.
 
2017-09-25 12:31:03 PM  
not to be too crass but he needs to live until next saturday.

have mixed feelings about mccain but cancer of any kind is a shiatty way to go.
 
2017-09-25 12:31:30 PM  
Keep that man alive until at least  October 1st.

I don't care what it takes.

We may be screwed anyway but if he dies with time to name a replacement that votes with Lindsay we are well and truly screwed.

McCain is 81.  A brain cancer prognosis at his age essentially means his time on this earth is coming to an end.  It's sad but unsurprising.  The minute it was announced we all sort of knew this would be it for him.

I hope he spends his time ensuring he can do whatever he can to help folks and leave a proud legacy behind.  Never fully agreed with the man, but his votes as of late do seem to be fueled by a genuine desire to be useful, and a horror as to what his party has become.

Hell, it's no coincidence the latest GOP healthcare abomination is spearheaded by his BFF.  Under different circumstances, it's hard to see McCain voting no on that.

I just hope the Momentary Maverick unloads on Donnie before he shuffles off into the sunset.

And if I were Mac, I'd put it in my will to ban Trump from attending my funeral. That way, Donnie would slam dead McCain and Donnie's poll numbers would never recover.

Just like they didn't after he previously slammed McCain for being captured, or the time he repeatedly insulted the Gold Star family, or the time he bragged about walking through the Miss Teen USA pageant with a bunch of half naked underage girls because he could, or the time he mocked the disabled reporter, or the time he bragged about how he can freely sexually assault women, or the time he....

Thanks. He was a funny, kind, tough farker. I hesitated to tell the story, because it's not something to joke about, but he would have approved.
