Sen. John S. McCain III, 1936-2018

  • 9 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

CNN reports, an American statesman has passed on:

Whenever America was in a fight during his long lifetime, John McCain was in the thick of it.

McCain, who has died at the age of 81, was a naval bomber pilot, prisoner of war, conservative maverick, giant of the Senate, twice-defeated presidential candidate and an abrasive American hero with a twinkle in his eye…

In recent months, he was not completely quiet, however, blasting President Donald Trump in a series of tweets and statements that showed that while he was ailing he had lost none of his appetite for the political fight.

The Arizona Senator repeatedly made clear that he saw Trump and his America First ideology as a departure from the values and traditions of global leadership that he saw epitomized in the United States.

We’ll miss Sen. John McCain, more than we would have expected. The nation and his party are diminished without him.

    1. For some, the Naval Academy delivers:

      Mission of USNA

      The Naval Academy has a unique clarity of purpose, expressed in our mission:

      "To develop Midshipmen morally, mentally and physically and to imbue them with the highest ideals of duty, honor and loyalty in order to graduate leaders who are dedicated to a career of naval service and have potential for future development in mind and character to assume the highest responsibilities of command, citizenship and government."

  1. Wishing his family and friends comfort in the hard time.

    Wishing the rest of us would be able to see other Republican Senators (and perhaps other politicians, too) honor his memory by adopting his respect for truth and his strength in following a sense of truth to its ends.

  2. We can fondly hope that a few of those in our government issuing the eloquent statements about his death can find even a little of the courage he possessed to speak truth to power and act in the best interest of our country.

    Godspeed, Senator.

    1. True enough. The thing about McCain though, he could admit when he was wrong and try to adjust his rhetoric and policy. That's a skill his fellow Repubs seem to have lost.
