Want A Friend In Washington? Don’t Call John McCain

Touche (with an accent), Ron Fournier at the National Journal, “In the real world, when somebody calls you an old friend, it matters. You can take them at their word. In Washington, ground zero for hypocrisy and posturing, “friend” is a 4-letter word and “old friend” is double trouble. Such was the case during a clash between Sen. John McCain, R-AZ, and former Sen. Chuck Hagel at Hagel’s confirmation hearing. The encounter was emblematic of Washington, where shallow friendships, intense polarization, and rampant hypocrisy flourish.” (BFFs no more)
