GOP relic John McCain just isn’t handling irrelevance well these days. As he witnesses the ascension of the new, younger breed of Republicans emerge, the former “maverick” is reduced to angrily lashing out.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is continuing to criticize his fellow Republicans for their filibuster of incoming CIA Director John O. Brennan over drone policy.

“They were elected, nobody believes that there was a corrupt election, anything else,” McCain said. “But I also think that when, you know, it’s always the wacko birds on right and left that get the media megaphone.”
