Will We Wind Up Calling This McCain's war?

This just gets weirder and weirder. McCain says he talks to Saakashvili daily. Saakashvili says it's "several times" daily. That's weird all by itself, that a US senator would be carrying on side-channel talks with the ruler of a foreign nation. Nevermind that McCain's foreign policy guy is Georgia's PR guy.

Now, not content that President Bush is sending the Secretary of State to deal with the conflict in person, Grampy McSame has deputized Sorry Ol' Joe Lieberman and Lindsay "Little Jerk" Graham to go see if they can poke around and make it worse.

McCain says he speaks for all of America and says we stand beside Georgia and Saakashvili goes off and
today told Georgians
that the US military was moving in to take over control of the country's air and
seaports -- which would be a pretty big deal since much of the country still
appears to be an active war zone.

And about five minutes later the Pentagon said he didn't know what
he was talking about.

Is McCain a loose cannon rolling around on a deck covered in nuclear missiles? Let's let McCain's old friend Fred Thompson answer.
Admiral Josh Painter: This business will get out of control. It will get out of
control and we'll be lucky to live through it.
