The McCain Death Watch

It’s as if the media are peering into the windows of Sen. John McCain’s Arizona ranch ghoulishly waiting for him to draw his last breath.
As he battles the highly malignant form of brain cancer known as glioblastoma and the debilitating side effects of his aggressive treatment, the Senator is reckoning with his history and the future, as he and a stream of friends share memories and say what needs to be said.
No one is saying goodbye, but his visitors are telling him they love him, how much he has meant to them and together they are taking care of unfinished business.
The New York Times is reporting a recent visit by former Vice President Joe Biden as one in which McCain requested he “not walk away from politics” and revealed his regret over selecting Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate over former Senator Joe Lieberman.
According to a published report by Time, McCain has “amplified his call for more civil politics since his diagnosis.”
The sanctimony and insincerity of that statement isn’t lost on a vast number of Americans.  After all, it was he who dispatched David Kramer, Senior Director of the McCain Institute, to London in November of 2016 to meet with former MI6 officer Christopher Steele and bring back copies of the dossier to view “the pre-election memoranda on a confidential basis” and summarily turned them over to the FBI.
The worshipful whitewashing by some on the Left is also galling when considering his less than heroic time in the Senate. McCain remained out of sync with the GOP base for his centrist stance on immigration and for comments such as, “Stop listening to the bombastic loudmouths on the radio and television and the Internet. To hell with them. They don’t want anything done for the public good.”  And let’s not forget when he torpedoed the GOP’s seven-year quest to repeal Obamacare.
The senator from Arizona is facing his own mortality and seems determined to make the final chapter of his life one of bitterness.  Sources close to McCain have confirmed his funeral will be held at the National Cathedral in Washington with former presidents George W. Bush and The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer giving eulogies.  “Songbird” McCain doesn’t want President Trump anywhere near his funeral.  Talk about taking hatred to the grave.
