With Donald Trump rocketing to the top of the GOP primary field, propelled along by a chemical reaction of reality TV celebrity and birth certificate speculation, you gotta wonder what the last guy who got the nod thinks of all this…
McCain, appearing on Meet the Press, was reminded by host David Gregory that Trump had endorsed him in 2008. McCain didn’t want to comment on whether he likes Trump better or worse than any other potential Republican candidate, instead just saying "I think of Mr. Trump as having the time of his life. I congratulate him for getting all the attention that he’s getting."
You know, for all his obnoxious overtures toward the far right since his '08 campaign, i suppose McCain still is, at heart, a serious politician. I can disagree with his policies all I want, but, at the end of the day, I have to admit that the guy has a genuine respect for the office of POTUS, and could not possibly get behind an unserious candidate who clearly disrespects the office in such a way that–
Then McCain surprisingly even brought up Sarah Palin's name unprovoked, adding "I would be very happy if Sarah Palin got in."
Oh, well, nevermind.
