Pol Bearers

RIP Senator John McCain. His send-off should be quite the show. Pall-bearers to include Warren Beatty (hmmm); Michael Bloomberg (excellent); Fred Smith FedEx CEO ($$); Gary Hart (interesting); Joe Biden (meaningful); Russ Feingold & Phil Gramm (campaign finance reform). Says a lot about the man and the pol.

McCain wrote a poignant farewell. In it he admitted making mistakes but hoped they’d be outweighed by his love of country. Sure they will. But. Two words. Sarah Palin. Too soon?

The statement was read today by Rick Davis, McCain’s pal and campaigns chair. Also. Former partner of Paul Manafort. No. That’s not a typo.
