Forget what I said about people hating on David Brooks. That was nothing next to this:
An article called for John McCain to “just … die already.” A GOP official responded: “Amen.” https://t.co/tCgejDfaun

FYI, John McCain is the only guy in Washington calling on the parties to drop the partisan posturing and try to draft healthcare legislation that will benefit the whole country:
“One of the major problems with Obamacare was that it was written on a strict party-line basis and driven through Congress without a single Republican vote. As this law continues to crumble in Arizona and states across the country, we must not repeat the original mistakes that led to Obamacare’s failure. The Congress must now return to regular order, hold hearings, receive input from members of both parties, and heed the recommendations of our nation’s governors so that we can produce a bill that finally provides Americans with access to quality and affordable health care.”
So of course he’s hated. That’s how it works.
Of course, the stupid woman who did this is trying to walk it back. But there is no explaining away something that hateful. It just is what it is…
