Very sad to wake up to the news of passing away of Senator John McCain aged 81(4 days short of his 82nd Birthday).
He was a true patriot indeed. Despite being grandson and son of 4Star Admirals of US Navy, McCain refused to be given preferential release when captured in Vietnam war and tortured.
I always wondered, if his selection of Sarah Palin derailed his efforts for the presidency in 2008!!
I was also positive that he would lose in Senate seat which he held since 1986 in Arizona during 2016 election, the campaign against him was bitter, but he managed to sneak a win.
Coincidentally, his death comes exactly 9 years on the day his close friend Edward Kennedy with whom he championed the immigration Amnesty reform bill!!
May his soul rest in peace. Interesting, he has expressed his wish that President Trump should not participate in his funeral!! That is some bitterness!! I would think goes to show how much this President like our Stupid Idiot Modi has polarised the nation!!!
