Some on the left mourn the passing of John McCain. What are they thinking?


Salivation map from Mother Jones (not sure of the date; likely pre-Trump).
And a couple of anti-eulogies:

One Dead McCain, 2.5 Million Dead Iraqis (Nick Pemberton, Counterpunch) [not sure where that number came from]
The Other Side of John McCain (Max Blumenthal, Consortium News)

And let's not forget The Keating Five scandal, which should have brought McCain's career to a miserable conclusion. From 1989 (Phoenix New Times):

John McCain, the Most Reprehensible of the Keating Five

Some hero!
