    I rather enjoyed this tirade:‘McCain Snaps at Anti-Kissinger Protesters: ‘Get Out of Here You Low-Life Scum’’


    "The 78-year-old senator erupted in response, demanding Capitol police come in and remove all the protestors.

    “You know, you’re going to have to shut up, or I’m going to have you arrested,” he said. “Get out of here you low-life scum.”


    Speaking of scum…

    We really need to have our Congresspeople retire when they are 70 or perhaps even sooner.

    Sure, McCain is wrong 90% of the time, but noting that Obama is a pissant child is such an obvious observation that even McCain can’t get it wrong.

    I never liked Mr. Kissinger (for no apparent reason), but I have to say that he was very, very good at what he was, the ultimate, pragmatic Secretary of State. It makes me wonder what our foreign relations would be like if people of his negotiating caliber had been SecState over the years instead of the incompetence of the ones we’ve had.

    You say “Pragmatic” ? I say “Callous in the supreme”


    I have many reasons to detest him.
    Better, ask the East Timorese what they think of him; or the Vietnamese; or Chilieans; or Cypriots…


    He took Realpolitik to a whole new self-interested level. The guy has no morals.
    I doubt his foreign relations skills helped the USA’s interests in the long run, except make more enemies. He was no Metternich.

    McCain is the son and grandson of military royalty — he was known by his peerscas a hotheaded spoiled brat hotdog pilot who took way too many chances with military aircraft. His being taken prisoner was not entirely bad luck.

    BTW — I heard this from more than one Vietnam era milatry pilots when McCain first got into politics and they thought his constituents were crazy for electing him.

    Mike, you might want to check out the essay in the below blog. You’ll get your reason.


    It’s the second essay down from Friday the 13th.

    Maybe you can comment somewhere about how it squares with your other research and knowledge.

    Oh, and about McCain’s tantrums?


    Has everone forgotten that It’s Always OKAY If A Republican Does It?

    Kissinger and Nixon kept the Viet Nam war going for longer than LBJ. No I don’t like Henry, not at all.


    I feel sorry for John McCain as his PTSD and apparent dementia with aging are sad to watch. Of course, maybe it’s just that he can no longer suppress his “inner child”. (a spoiled brat indeed)

    Just for fun you might read Joseph Heller’s “Good as Gold” for an interesting view of Kissinger.

    And if Wanda Landowska (the great harpsichordist ) had married Howard Hughes, had divorced him and married Henry Kissinger, she be Wanda Hughes Kissinger now.

    Reasons McCain’s POW nickname was Songbird.

    Glad you enjoyed it. I didn’t make it up. I wish I had. It’s maybe the best pun I know.
    Here’s one I did make up. Orestes is being pursued around Greece by the three goddesses in charge of good relationships in the family, and someone says to him, “Who is chasing you? Is it the police?” And he says, “No, it’s not the heat, it’s the Eumenides.”
