Listen up, Mac

Lawrence O’Donnell on Republican Sen. John McCain’s hissy fit in the wake of the passage of health-care reform:

“Sen. McCain, deep breath. Calm down. You are not the only Senator who lost a presidential election and returned to work in the Senate. There is a model for how to do this with dignity, while fulfilling your oath to serve the people without violating your loyalty to your party. He’s a bit younger than you are, but served in the same war. Like you, he is a decorated Navy man, and he has much to teach you about controlling your temper and preserving your dignity. He’s right there, across the aisle. You can talk to him. He still likes you. The Navy bond is stronger than the Senate bond. Go ahead, ask John Kerry how he does it.”

Amen.
