    RIP John McCain. I disagreed with you on political topics, but you were a true American Hero.

    He was a good man who pretty much nobody agreed with 100% of the time. The real maverick. He will be missed.

    He will be missed, but he was only a maverick until he ran for president. Then he started flip-flopping on issues in order to pander for votes. I lost a great deal of respect for him during that campaign. He got back on track afterwards.

    He was a real hero in all respects. Semper Fi mang and god speed.
    Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

    I is before E except after C, then it's chaos man, mass chaos! Letters coming together into words, but then you go English and they put U's in places that just shouldn't go there... AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

    My sanity left town along time ago and didn't leave a forwarding address. It's not missed.

    His voting record was pro-plutocraty . His death would be positive if his replacement wasn't pro-plutocrats.
    Signature too big and pornographic. Next offense will be a ban.

    I spent a good chunk of the '90s arguing that McCain was batshit crazy. He was incredibly principled - no one could say he wasn't. But more often than not, his principles were well to the right of mainstream, and he was more than a bit too hawkish (also my main complaint about Hillary Clinton). McCain was also the person who, against the advice of pretty much everyone, elevated Sarah Palin to the big stage, and helped to bring about the modern weirdness of Mr. Trump.

    But he was also a clean fighter, and honorable enemy, and when the time finally came, he stood up for his principles against Trump and Trumpism.

    He was still batshit crazy.

    (Edit to add - while he was hawkish at times, I have to give McCain credit for being reluctant to send soldiers into lose-lose situations, and was against the 1st Gulf War, one of few Republicans who took that position.)

    Farside, he was a Republican Senator. Of course he was batshit crazy. He was still a better man than Trump.

    Be hard-pressed to name a present-day prominent Republican he isn't a better man than

    Ted Cruz. Paul Ryan. They're worse than Trump because they're pussy-whipped by him.

    In my defense, I had to guess.
