In all seriousness, we wish Sen. John McCain well. He’s up against an aggressive cancer —the kind that finally killed Ted Kennedy and Beau Biden— and it will likely be the last battle for that ornery, old basta’.
Grandpa Walnuts’ politics have been a target here since the beginning of the blog (from being the Maverick who Isn’t to foisting Mooselini on an unsuspecting and undeserving public), and rightly so. But that said, the man himself is a certified American War Hero.

…and it is as good a summary of McCain as any.
So whatever it is that comes next, we are rooting for John McCain. We really do want to have him to kick around for a while longer.
