McCain is irrelevant to the issue, he's just another centurion of a dying Empire. But this bashing of the Libyan revolution won't fly.

Qaddafi is a murderous swine, a tyrant, a thug who murdered goddess-only-knows-how-many honest progressives, leftists and dissenters in Libya. The people of Libya have had enough of the monster, and they're fighting back -- and winning. The rebels aren't perfect, but there's a metric ton of videos, interviews, and other English-language media describing who they are and what they want. They're ordinary people, and they want some sort of democratic state.
