It is time to say goodnight to John McCain, a Republican who once spoke out against torture, but wound up voting against the one bill that would end it. Say goodnight to a man who once reached out to immigrants, then turned his back and lost their vote. Goodnight to a man who used to reach across the aisle to do the right thing, but wound up reaching out to his party’s base to compromise his values. Goodnight to a man who used to speak truth to power, and today speaks lies to the feeble-minded. Goodnight to a man who as a soldier idealistically put his country first, and three months ago cynically sold his country out. Say goodnight to a man who once was a maverick, who is now simply erratic. Say goodnight to Senator John McCain. The man who lost more than an election––he lost his way.

  1. Beautiful post.

    Honestly, when this election is done I hope he finds his way again.
