Mehdi Hasan tweeted perhaps one of the best responses to the death of McCain. He began with extending condolences to the McCain family whose loss should be acknowledged regardless of McCain’s political crimes & corruption:

“Condolences to the family of John McCain.

Condolences also to the families of thousands of American soldiers & tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis, Afghans, Yemenis, Syrians, Palestinians & others who might be alive today were it not for the votes & actions of John McCain.”

I would only correct Hasan by saying the hundreds of thousands, nay millions of innocents killed by the votes & actions of McCain.
