Besides Bush, Who Does?

Bush-hugging toady Senator John McCain bares a fang:
Dec. 13, 2004  |  PHOENIX (AP) -- U.S. Sen. John McCain said Monday that he has "no confidence" in Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsf(ailed), citing Rumsf(ailed)'s handling of the war in Iraq and the (Rums)failure to send more troops.

McCain, speaking to The Associated Press in an hourlong interview, said his comments were not a call for Rums(ailed)'s resignation, explaining that President Bush "can have the team that he wants around him."
"No matter how stupid, bloodthirsty and blinded by ideology they may be."
"I have strenuously argued for larger troop numbers in Iraq, including the right kind of troops -- linguists, special forces, civil affairs, etc.," said McCain, R-Ariz. "There are very strong differences of opinion between myself and Secretary Rumsf(ailed) on that issue."
"Since he's an idiot who thinks a small, lightly armed occupation force can keep a lid on 25 million poverty-stricken, heavily armed Arabs with nothing left to lose."
When asked if Rumsf(ailed) was a liability to the Bush administration, McCain responded: "The president can decide that, not me."
He's not a liability to the administration. He's a liability to the troops. Here's nickel kid. Go buy yourself some better armor.
