That's pretty damning, all right.  I didn't vote for him when he ran for president because he was well known to be a Hawk, and since he was a Republican, I never expected him to vote for matters favored by the Democrats.  However, compared to some of the sleazebags such as the Twitterer and petty child who's been dissing him, McCain was a decent human being whose politics I simply never agreed with.
I have respected a number of people I strongly disagreed with and will continue to do so.  Also, I don't think it's appropriate to speak ill of the dead since they can't offer a defense. (I might change that opinion if the current occupant of the White House suffered a mortal stroke, though. I'm a sinner, too.)

Yes, he didn't earn his title of RHINO from the alt-right for NO reason at all.
Not the model progressive, liberal, Democrat, but certainly better, and an improvement, over the rest of the Republican Congressional sheep.
Like I said, any kind of a roof is better in a ran storm, than none at all.

The Daca kids are grateful to McCain. imho, they deserve citizenship. How is it possible for contributing members of society to be deported (read penalized) to a country they don't know and were not responsible for leaving?
