New details emerge on Voinovich's screaming match with John McCain
July 24, 2007 08:47 AM
As discussed here a few weeks ago George Voinovich got into a nasty battle about Iraq with John McCain at a Republicans-only meeting recently. You may recall that one Senator described it as "the most serious fight that I have seen in my time in the Senate."
Well, this morning Laura Ingraham's show is running "Best of" bits while Laura is out of town. Apparently she had Senator Bunning on a few weeks ago, after the Voinovich/McCain fight, but before news of who was involved leaked out. Senator Bunning talked about the incident, without naming who was involved in the fight with McCain. But of course, now we know who it was.
Bunning said it got so ugly that he walked out of the meeting. Apparently Voinovich challenged McCain's integrity, something Bunning said that "you do not do." McCain responded by lighting into Voinovich, and telling him he had no idea what he was talking about. It went downhill from there.
Voinovich's erratic behavoir on Iraq policy has pretty much enfuriated everyone, hasn't it?
