This is the first of three rants I plan to post on the memo.  McCain’s response was bizarre.  I’d like to chalk it up to senility or brain cancer, but the reality is that’s it’s vintage McCain.  Let me translate it for you.  According to this swamp creature, we need a secret police or KGB or Gestapo to protect the political class and swamp dwellers from US citizens.  We have to be able to spy on you to protect our privilege and you need to give up your rights to protect us, and to question this is tantamount to treason.  The sooner this idiot goes away the better and safer we’ll all be.
