Democratic leaders have spent a decade demonizing Republicans.
And while Sen. John McCain has long leaned further to the left side of the aisle than other Republicans, he hasn’t been immune to their hostility.
And so, the reactions of top Democrats upon learning McCain has brain cancer mean that they’re either enormous hypocrites, or all that bad-mouthing is just for show.
At any rate, even if all we’re seeing are crocodile tears, it’s kind of nice to pretend that everyone likes each other, if only for a moment.
John McCain is an American hero & one of the bravest fighters I’ve ever known. Cancer doesn’t know what it’s up against. Give it hell, John.
