John McCain comes out of his recent performances as boring, rude, and highly offensive. I was appalled at his behavior during Mr. Hagel's hearings. He came across as a belligerent bully. When he took to the Senate floor to rebuke a member of his own party for exercising his rights as a senator, I thought McCain was divisive at best. He was grandstanding for the press. I have lost all respect for him. The Republican party cannot depend upon him at all and he behaves as if he is Republican for convenience only. The GOP would be better off without him. His should fade quietly into retirement.
