Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
John McCain’s health has been on the downturn — and now there’s open speculation that the longtime Arizona senator could be on death’s door.
McCain has been undergoing treatment to fight what The Washington Post calls “an aggressive, highly lethal type of cancer” in his brain, called glioblastoma.
Now, insiders are warning that McCain’s health has recently taken a sharp downturn — and it’s negatively effecting his behavior and his ability to participate in his duties.
He is “very frail, and we’re concerned,” Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden, a Democrat, told CNN’s Wolf Blizter. Wyden told the host he’s desperately praying for the senator and his wife, Cindy.
Other sources have come forward to warn that McCain is unable to participate in meetings as a side-effect of his treatment — and his behavior is “not normal.”
McCain’s longtime friend, South Carolina Sen. Lindsay Graham, an establishment Republican, has downplayed the talk. “He is receiving treatment for the side effects of therapy. I feel pretty good about the way the treatment is affecting his underlying cancer. But the treatment has a downside. So he is trying to rest up. I am very confident that he will come back and continue to participate for a long time to come.”
Editor's note: Cancer is a terrible disease and this type of cancer is one of the worst. We would not wish it on anyone, including McCain. We have said before, he has been diagnosed and we hope this cancer gives him impetus to step away from the Senate to spend time with his family. We have called on him to leave the Senate. He has not been doing the job for Arizona for years. That is just a fact. Nonetheless, we do pray for him and his family.
