20. Guys like these - Franken and McCain - are the types who bring out the best in people.

UNLIKE a certain orange Russian Asset whose only mission in life seems to be to deceive in order to get his way.

I swear - the comparisons, which will come in tidal waves throughout this media mourning period for Senator McCain, may well jolt a few people awake on that side of the aisle. Whether they're Capitol Hill colleagues or voters out there in DeplorableLand. It's got to happen with at least a few.

While we mourn John McCain, it can't help but become obvious, even while unspoken, what a glaring and even painful contrast the John McCain story is - with that of donald trump. I can't help but suspect that it will get to at least a few of trump's hard-cores, who will actually be reminded of what REAL greatness in our public officials - AND honesty, also, is.
