Hey, remember yesterday? Because mostly it was a bag of fart noises. See, the entire country was having an argument with Senator John McCain. An overwhelming majority of us believed that we should show empathy and compassion to those afflicted with disease by not taking away their access to healthcare, and he felt the exact opposite. Unfortunately for us, that fucker won. So now I guess treating those with terminally ill diseases isn’t a national principle of ours. In which case, fuck John McCain.
