Opinion: McCain comes to Washington, and confounds with his actions
To the editor: OK, the president’s base has had its fun, pricking the more level-headed citizens of this country by helping elect, and continuing to support, a lunatic who champions their bizarre political worldview.
Perhaps now they will heed GOP Sen. John McCain’s moving call for a more balanced, cooperative government — one that works for all the people.

To the editor: A war hero, an American hero, came to Congress in his post-operative condition and gave an impressive speech on the right way to legislate: out in the open, with dialogue, with hearings, with discussion, with amendments, all in a truly American, bipartisan way.
And then in a single, contradictory “yes” vote he flushed it all.
