Others might call it "honesty". Politicians don't get instant sainthood just because they die.
John McCain was a bad human being, on a number of different levels. How silly to whitewash him and revise history just because he's dead.
And PS, serving in the military doesn't get you instant sainthood, either.
Are we just recognizing his political life? Folks are choosing his death as an opportunity to bash him. He did far more than just serve in the military. Most join and never see the battlefield. We still honor those people for their willingness to join knowing they might give the greatest sacrifice - death. McCain didn't just serve, he was a POW in the most notorious prisons every devised. He endured terrible injuries, and on top of that torture. And he managed to come home mentally sane to further serve our country.
What specifically makes McCain a bad man?
