I wasn’t watching the news all that closely yesterday, so, as sometimes happens with Twitter, I saw the jokes about John McCain sneaking into Syria to talk to the rebels before I knew he had gone. Here’s the first I saw:
Syrian rebels with McCain, probably: “I want to trust your judgment, but go over again why you thought she was qualified to be president.”
Later, someone brought my attention to this one from McCain pal Lindsey Graham:
Best wishes to @SenJohnMcCain in Syria today. If he doesn’t make it back calling dibs on his office.
Anyway, no doubt to Graham’s chagrin, McCain apparently made it back out of Syria OK (at least, that’s how I read this reference to Yemen). The White House has said today that yeah, they knew he was going, and no, they don’t have anything else to say about it, but look forward to hearing from the senator about his trip.
