At this point it’s like a reflex. A Repub said it? Then, no.
But McCain is right about this :
“There is no moral equivalence between that butcher and thug and KGB colonel and the United States.”
The US, for all the evil it does, for all the Guantanamos and legalized torture and bullying wars, is not in Putin’s class.
But as Joy Reid said, people like McCain need to “start opposing the thug’s apologist at 1600 PA Ave.”
If they want to stop sliding toward that class.
