Massive ownage

This urban dictionary term is the only one adequate to describe the tearing down of John McCain by George Will(hat tip, Ilana Mercer). When the quintessential establishment Republican commentator like Will turns anti-war, things are really going bad for the interventionist crowd.

I'd just like to call your attention to the last paragraph:

Regarding Libya, McCain on Sunday said, “I wonder what Ronald Reagan would be saying today.” Wondering is speculation; we know this:

When a terrorist attack that killed 241 Marines and other troops taught Reagan the folly of deploying them at Beirut airport with a vague mission and dangerous rules of engagement, he was strong enough to reverse this intervention in a civil war. Would that he had heeded a freshman congressman from Arizona who opposed the House resolution endorsing the intervention. But, then, the McCain of 1983 was, by the standards of the McCain of 2011, an isolationist.

That must've hurt...
