In light of the news of John McCain’s cancer, people have been sharing this video as evidence of his decency and integrity:

Good grief! Our political discourse is at such a low point that a video of a Republican correcting one of his dumb-ass racist voters shouting out a conspiracy theory is considered praiseworthy. It’s also a bit cringeworthy when he corrects her assertion that Obama is an Arab by saying, “no no, he’s a decent guy.”
But considering that we basically elected the orange version of that woman to the Presidency maybe I should give him a pass on that.
I’m not a fan of McCain’s politics but I wish him a speedy recovery with the help of our healthcare system so that he may return to the Senate where he can continue to fight alongside the rest of the GOP to take healthcare away from everybody else.
