McCain Slams Bachmann

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) accused Huma Abedin, a member of Hillary Clinton’s staff, of being a Muslim Brotherhood spy or something; who knows what slushes through that swamp of her alleged mind. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) stood up in the Senate and went all Joseph Welch on Ms. Bachmann:

To say that the accusations made in both documents are not substantiated by the evidence they offer is to be overly polite and diplomatic about it. It is far better, and more accurate, to talk straight: These allegations about Huma Abedin, and the report from which they are drawn, are nothing less than an unwarranted and unfounded attack on an honorable citizen, a dedicated American, and a loyal public servant.

He left out the “have you no decency?” part, but he pretty much nailed it. Good for him.
