Aaron, I just want to extend credit where credit is due. As I mentioned, there's no way I'd vote McCain. But he was civil. And reasonable at debate, at least in terms of where we are now. Maybe I'm being unnecessarily reminiscent and misty. But he represented an old foe. He did personally ask Obama to speak at his funeral. Just saying...

James, I get where you’re coming from. The health care vote was good. But, overall, he is given way more credit than he deserves, and, beyond that, I dislike (intensely) the way Trump is making Democrats nostalgic for Republicans (like McCain and Bush Jr.) who killed abd harmed people, but civilly.

I get that too, Aaron. I'm a hawkish liberal, so maybe that explains something. Though I'm proud to say that not just myself, but my whole family (those I talk to anyway) protested the Iraqi invasion. My lord. It just keeps getting worse and worse on the right. But, yes, sometimes you have to fight.

On the overall point of the killings, I don't understand the so called liberal media's take on this. There's always someone hanging by a thread. Responsible? Christ, of course.
