Looks like Grandpa McCranky-Pants McCain is still irritated over the exchange between Hillary Clinton and Sen. Rob Johnson at her hearing this Wednesday. And as we've come to expect, the man's hypocrisy meter is completely broken: The pot accuses the kettle of having an 'adoring media':
At yesterday's Senate hearing on September's Benghazi attack, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) asked Secretary of State Hillary Clinton a series of questions, all of which seemed rather familiar. Indeed, the odd thing about McCain's inquiries is that he would already know the answers to all of his questions if he'd familiarized himself with the publicly available information, including the findings (pdf) of the independent investigation.
And while I was willing to let that go, McCain's appearance on Fox News this morning was even more difficult to endure. [...]
Clinton never said it "didn't matter" how the four Americans were killed. She said the opposite.
As was obvious to anyone paying attention, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) was preoccupied with preliminary intelligence reports about a possible protest in Benghazi and Clinton said that was irrelevant as compared to the death of four Americans -- and she was correct.
If McCain found this too confusing to understand, perhaps the Senate Foreign Relations Committee isn't the best place for him to serve.
What's more, Clinton has "an adoring media"? This from a man who spends so much time on the Sunday shows that he has his mail forwarded to green rooms? This from a senator who's so adored by the D.C. political establishment that he's considered reporters his base?
Yep. Heaven forbid McCain ever turns down a chance to get his mug in front of the camera, just like his BFF Lindsey Graham. If there's ever a day where I don't have to see either of them on the television again, it can't come soon enough.
