Former senator tapped to replace John McCain

I think it is boorish.

The 76-year-old was on the Senate Judiciary Committee for the confirmation proceedings of four Supreme Court justices - John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.

"So we went out there and there was nothing left", Jacob said. Larson died in 2014, and McCain wrote in a recent memoir that he wanted to be buried next to his friend, "near where it began". Another was more direct, calling for the United States leader's naysayers to "rot in hell".

McCain, who died August 25 aged 81 after a year-long struggle against brain cancer, was interred in a private ceremony in the academy's grassy cemetery overlooking the Severn River.

Radio 5 Live presenter Rachael Bland has revealed she has just days to live, in a farewell tweet to her followers. In a separate post on Instagram , Rachael said she would do her best to read all of the messages sent to her.


"There is no one in Arizona with the stature of Senator Jon Kyl".

The replies to his tweet were mixed, with many seeming to believe that it was a direct attack on the McCain family and the senator's daughter's comments at the service. It's all about trust.

The flag-draped coffin holding McCain's body was flown to Washington, D.C., aboard Air Force Two, the plane reserved for the vice president.

He ran unsuccessfully for president twice, in 2000 and 2008. And we learned from each other.

"I am here before you today saying the words I have never wanted to say, giving a speech I have never wanted to give, feeling the loss I have never wanted to feel. Or that when all was said and done, we were on the same team". Our mutual dedication to these shared ideals, still imperfectly realized, in McCain's view, is what not only brings us together; it is the source of our greatness.

Kyl is well-respected in Arizona and has been able to avoid numerous battles with activists that complicated McCain's career and that of the state's other senator, Jeff Flake, who is retiring because his feud with Trump made his re-election impossible. That is the America that John McCain served and sacrificed for and that he believed was endangered by the racially tinged divisiveness and reflexive dishonesty of Donald Trump. He's a war hero because he was captured. "I like people that weren't captured" burnished the veneration accorded to the departed senator, even while adding to the loathing directed at Mr. Trump.

Amid mounting criticism for his failure to adequately honor the senator's passing, Trump eventually, and perhaps rather reluctantly, released another statement last Monday mourning McCain's death and paying tribute to him for his lifelong service to his country.
