McCain: Rodman “is an idiot”

posted at 11:14 am on January 8, 2014 by

Finally, a point on which pretty much everyone agrees with John McCain … and perhaps Piers Morgan:

“I think he’s an idiot,” the Arizona Republican said of the former NBA player on CNN on Tuesday. “I think he’s a person of not great intellect who doesn’t understand he really does provide propaganda for this very brutal, ruthless young man.”

Rodman is one of those types where it’s hard to be mad at him. We don’t get angry with children who do and say silly things, and we don’t get angry with adults that have child like minds.

This from the Lady Gaga of politics. A definite pot/kettle conundrum. Like John M. never sang happy b-day to Barry in said fashion. Probably wore a Marilyn Monroe sequin knock off for the event.
Orc of the senate.

McCain? Hmm…

Piers? Hmm…

You know what they say … takes one to know one.

McCain: Rodman “is an idiot”

Well, McCain would know.

“I think he’s an idiot,” the Arizona Republican said of the former NBA player on CNN on Tuesday. “And as a lifelong idiot, I would know.”

Since when is stating the obvious news?

ElectricPhase on January 8, 2014 at 11:46 AM

You can “excuse” an idiot for not having any principles. McCain, however….

EastofEden on January 8, 2014 at 11:46 AM

You know what they say about a broken crock…

Shy Guy on January 8, 2014 at 11:48 AM

Yes, Rodman is. But am I the only one thinking it’s a perfect cover for CIA intel work? They’ve used hollywood (Argo) and celebrities (Howard Hughs, Glomar Explorer) in the past.

NickelAndDime on January 8, 2014 at 12:08 PM

Way to take the political high road there, John.

CurtZHP on January 8, 2014 at 12:13 PM

Idiot Trifecta there.

AllahsNippleHair on January 8, 2014 at 12:21 PM

I thought this was another Hillary thread… OH! RODMAN!
.
Hillary “Rodman” Clinton… has a nice ring to it, doncha think?

ExpressoBold on January 8, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Oh please…, just as soon as Rodman has some psychosis-induced change of heart and calls for war with NoKo, Senator Juan McCain (D-MEXICO) will be calling for Rodman to receive a medal of freedom.

Jeddite on January 8, 2014 at 12:30 PM

NYT headline: McCain insults idiots around the world.

simkeith on January 8, 2014 at 12:45 PM

Now THAT has to hurt.

WryTrvllr on January 8, 2014 at 12:45 PM

No. Praising Mussolini and the little corporal before fully knowing what their plans were is the mark of an idiot. At this point, and with all we know about North Korea, praising Kim is the hallmark of a willing participant in evil.

“I think he’s an idiot,” the Arizona Republican said of the former NBA player on CNN on Tuesday.

That would be the most charitable interpretation of Rodman’s actions possible.

AUINSC on January 8, 2014 at 2:16 PM

Speaking of idiots John, how’s your Al Qaeda buddies?

Flange on January 8, 2014 at 3:03 PM

And Obama?

aryeung on January 8, 2014 at 5:24 PM

Wow, what a daring stance to take!

McCain: Rodman “is an idiot”

…if Senator Senile had a son…he would be like Rodman!

Pot, meet kettle.

Blind pig meet acorn

jaywemm on January 8, 2014 at 7:41 PM

Either that, or he’s a genius. As long as he’s a spy.

McCain: Rodman “is an idiot”

So … evidence that even blind squirrel finds an acorn occasionally?

jix on January 8, 2014 at 9:33 PM

Takes one to know one, John.

Dusty on January 8, 2014 at 11:19 PM

Damn right he’s an idiot. Rodman told me he was going there to overthrow the government, not play basketball.

Come home safely, idiot.

Ronnie on January 9, 2014 at 2:02 AM

When John McCain knows you are an idiot…

Meremortal on January 9, 2014 at 2:36 AM

Well, McCain, that makes two of you.

zoyclem on January 9, 2014 at 7:27 AM

…and Megan McCain makes three.

A BigSven Anecdote

IT was Back in the 90s, (not long after Pinatubo blew), BigSven drank a San Migoo wid Rodmans old man. Yeah, in some typical Angeles nipahut type beer/girlie bar. Seemed like a regular ex pat GI.

BigSven on January 9, 2014 at 7:46 AM

An “idiot?”

This is a perfect example of the pot calling the kettle black (no racism intended)

Don L on January 9, 2014 at 8:04 AM

..maybe he should be fed to a pack of slavering Nork dogs. And then, if they’re still hungry, feed ‘em M&Ms. (Morgan & McCain.)

The War Planner on January 9, 2014 at 10:23 AM

Thank you, Senator Obvious!
