VIDEO-- McCain admits Hagel filibuster is political payback: He "was very anti-his own party... People don't forget that."


payback time

John McCain:

"To be honest with you, it goes back to, there's a lot of ill will towards Sen. Hagel because when he was a Republican, he attacked President Bush mercilessly, at one point said he was the worst president since Herbert Hoover, said that the surge was the worst blunder since the Vietnam War, which is nonsense. And was very anti-his own party and people. People don't forget that. You can disagree, but if you're disagreeable, people don't forget that."

America first, right McCain?

Sorry, no links to these tweets, they got lost in the shuffle:

@chrislhayes: Imagine if we couldn't swear in a president unless he got 60% of the popular vote? We'd be in a state of perpetual crisis and democratic erosion.

@markos: If Republicans want to pick the cabinet, they should win the election first.
