    McCain was an American hero and gave more for his country than most ever will. RIP.

    Me either.

    McCain will always have my eternal respect. He may have graduated bottom of his class, but the guy refused to be released as a POW just because his father was a high ranking military member. That's intestinal fortitude defined.

    I haven't always agreed with him politically, but the guy was a hero and deserving of respect.

    I mean it reads like the work of someone recently fired by Hallmark, but at least he's not openly shitting on a dead war hero.

    The cynic in me thinks it took 4 hours of fighting and physical restraint in order to let someone other than Trump send that tweet.

    The cynic in me responds by saying they finally got him to relent by promising they would only mention the family, and say absolutely nothing positive about McCain himself.

    I’m kind of annoyed at certain liberal Twitter who feel the need to tweet that they are “just not saying anything” about John McCain instead of just shutting the fuck up all together. Telling people you aren’t saying anything is saying something. It says you are a smug shitty person who can’t bear to be decent to someone great who dedicated his life to this country.

    Or people needing to point out that they “didn’t agree with him, but...” because not accidentally being associated with someone’s political views is more important than remembering them in passing. At least people still find a way to make everything about themselves.

    My guess is the decision was made months ago but didn't release the info to avoid the political posturing and media attention.

    You mean like Kelli Ward claiming the announcement was trying to take attention away from her campaign.

    His frailty was really showing in his final film, which was dedicated to his career.

    Playing Lewis is Deliverance is enough in its own to cement him as a legend, he was an Action star before action movies really existed. And he was brilliant in Boogie Nights and should have won the Oscar for it.

    Damn, that's a shame. Funny thing is all 3 of the custom smokers I helped build were named after that movie; Smokey, Bandit, and Trigger. We even put a firebird etched plaque on the side of Trigger.

    Looks like I'll be spending the rest of my day wearing my oversized cowboy hat and referring to myself as Turd Ferguson in homage.

    Uh, why did you leave out watching Episode 3.4 of Archer (The Man from Jupiter) from that list?

    He never liked Boogie Nights. He looked bad a few years ago in the short clip about signing some new Bandit inspired New Trans Ams.
