John McCain Lacks The Judgment To Be President

John McCain's fundamental misunderstanding of both history and of the nature of our current threat from terrorism were on full display last night when he said in front of a crowd of supporters that the Iraq War constitutes "the greatest evil, probably, that this nation has ever faced."

Wow. What a ridiculous and demonstrably false statement. Rather than come up with a clever retort to McCain's absurd comment, I'll let Blue Texan from firedoglake handle it:
"Nazi Germany took over one continent and a good chunk of another, executed 12,000,000 men, women, and children in the name of racial purity, and started a war that killed 70,000,000 people worldwide. The Japanese slaughtered 35,000,000 Chinese, including 300,000 mostly for the hell of it at Nanking. And of course there's Stalin, who killed 20,000,000 of his own people and Mao, who probably wiped out 2-3 million for being disloyal.

Someone who ranks Osama and the war in Iraq above World War II and Hitler and Stalin and Mao just should not be taken seriously about anything. It should be automatic grounds for a complete loss of all credibility, especially on national security issues. Period. It's ridiculous.

I realize St. McCain, like all wingnuts, dreams of being Churchill. But you can't be Churchill without a Hitler, and Osama and company are pikers compared to Hitler."
