Who knew that Ol' John still had a pair? I'm calling him "Senator McClang" for the sound they make when he walks.
Senate panel stalls nominee who called assault rifle sales 'insane' | TheHill: The Senate Armed Services Committee on Thursday declined to move forward with a top Defense Department nominee after he made bold comments on gun control and military abortion policy during a committee hearing earlier this week. Committee Chairman Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) told reporters that lawmakers still “have a number of questions” — specifically on “guns and abortions” — for Dean Winslow, the nominee for assistant secretary of Defense for health affairs. Winslow during a Tuesday hearing said he thinks it’s “insane” that civilians can buy assault rifles in the United States. That remark came just days after a deadly mass shooting in Texas. McCain at the time interrupted Winslow, telling him, “I don't think that's in your area of responsibility or expertise.”
