Buh-bye, McCain

Parody (remember when that was still a thing?) by The Nation

John McCain hagiography is on every channel today, but I say, feh.  McCain needed Pumpkin to make him look any good. 

And never forget, McCain gave us the proto-Pumpkin, the one who led the way: Sarah Palin.  The archetypal fact-free babbler who dropped most of the dog-whistle in favor of outright bigotry came to us ten years ago last month from Wasilla, courtesy of John McCain.

Slightly but not really off-topic: are narcissism and belief in conspiracy theories mutually-reinforcing mental illnesses? Asking for a friend.


Seriously, how deep does your narcissism have to run before you can entertain this concept?
