Joan Walsh: McCain Was Cowardly To Put Palin A Heartbeat From Presidency

Speaking to MSNBC's Al Sharpton, Joan Walsh criticized Senator John McCain's (R-AZ) response to the Ukranian crisis. McCain referred to the administration as "cowardly"for not giving weapons to Ukraine and, true to his constant advocacy for military action, called for placing troops and missiles throughout Eastern Europe to confront Russia–"just for openers." Walsh said, "The idea that you would send more weaponry into an area like this where people are already misusing weapons obviously is crazy. And, you know, Senator McCain, I'm not sure that there's been a conflict in recent years that he hasn't thought that we should have more troops and more weapons from Iran to Iraq, Libya, Syria, Nigeria and now Ukraine." Regarding McCain's use of the word "cowardly," Walsh said, "You don’t say that about the commander-in-chief. This is a man, I respect him for his service, but if we’re going to talk 'cowardly,' somebody tried to put Sarah Palin a heartbeat away from the presidency so that he hoped to hold onto his right-wing base. Somebody that has a lot to atone for and a lot to think about shouldn’t be tossing around words like 'cowardly.' " Watch:
