It Took Defense Sec. Robert Gates A Full Month To Tell John McCain He’s Going To Ignore Him

In September Sen. John McCain wrote to Defense Sec. Robert Gates, “urg[ing]” him to change up the Pentagon’s survey, or conduct new ones, to ask troops whether DADT should be repealed, rather than how. Gates responded in a letter last month, like so: STFU. Which is fitting because, while McCain is an elected official, he is also a) a complete schmuck; b) intent on undermining military preparedness and national security; and c) does not sit on any Senate committee having to do with the military.

      QUEERTY: “It Took Defense Sec. Robert Gates A Full Month To Tell John McCain He’s Going To Ignore Him”

      Of course it took a full month. Defense Sec. Gates has more important things to do than to babysit a doddering old senator. It’s just that you can’t ignore a senator indefinitely.

      Also, 30 days is the limit that a govt. agency etc… has to respond to a Senate inquiry.

      McCain is like that Sad Desperate pathetic kid in school who is running around the cafeteria trying to dump milk on the school nerd in hopes that the kids at the cool table will let him sit there. It’s so sad that I would feel sorry for the douchebag if he didn’t have authority far in excess of his intelligence or common sense.

      That said, his skin is looking so loose that he is reminding me of the insect in “Men in Black” that wore the skin of a human to try to pass on Earth unoticed.

      Didn’t we learn in 2008 that McCain was supposed to be dead by now or something?

      @Cam: “McCain is like that Sad Desperate pathetic kid in school who is running around the cafeteria trying to dump milk on the school nerd in hopes that the kids at the cool table will let him sit there.”

      Except in this case the “kids at the cool table” aren’t actually so much ‘cool’ as they are getting a lot of attention because they keep trying to set fire to the school :-/ I’d have said he’s like the sad, desperate, pathetic kid running around milking the school nerd in hopes of being welcomed at the delinquent sociopaths’ table where they staple teabags to their heads and stab classmates while raving about students’ rights.
