Earlier this week I was speculating that the GOP were deliberately dragging their feet on the Obamacare repeal and replace legislation. I was, and am under the impression that the steps to the edge of doing something by the Senate were window dressing and they never had any intention of doing anything. So far, I have no disagreement with my earlier assessment.
However, I did speculate that senator John McCain's sudden need to be hospitalized was also window dressing. Today it was announced he's been diagnosed with brain cancer. Clearly I was wrong.
I'm not a fan of McCain's even though back in 2008 I thought he would make a better president than would Barack Obama. Despite my issues with his weak-kneed politics, I do appreciate his service in the defense of freedom as well as his service in the Senate.
I wish him and his family well and hope this is a manageable or treatable condition.
That said, it does open some questions about his senate duties and his seat. I'll leave that political discussion for later, although I'm sure Democrats are full of ideas already.
