John McCain, demented, senile loser:
Mr. McCain was trying to fashion a plan to make clear that Russian objections would not stop American missile defense in Europe. Mr. McCain proposed an amendment to the resolution of ratification that accompanies the treaty, which would not require reopening talks with Russia. . . .
The amendment was co-sponsored by Mr. Kyl and two other Republicans, Senators Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Mark Kirk of Illinois. Congressional officials have said Mr. McCain was hoping to find a path to supporting the treaty despite his vocal criticisms, and the amendment could win Mr. Kirk's vote too.
