Watch Joan Walsh School Grumpy McCain About Cowardice

John McCain's claim that a failure to intervene in Ukraine was 'cowardly' triggered a sharp response from Joan Walsh.

Joan Walsh sent one sailing into the air and nailed Senator 'Grumpy' John McCain right between the eyes with this one.

Mediaite:

“It’s just been cowardly,” McCain said on Fox News’ Hannity last night. “It’s a cowardly administration that we failed to give the Ukrainians weapons with which to defend themselves,” he continued, suggesting that the Russian separatists who allegedly shot down the plane “may not even have occupied and had access to these weapons” if the U.S. had aided the Ukrainians with weapons and troops.

“You don’t say that about the commander-in-chief,” Walsh told Sharpton today. “This is a man, I respect him for his service, but if we’re going to talk cowardly, somebody tried to put Sarah Palin a heartbeat away from the presidency so that he hoped to hold onto his right-wing base. Somebody that has a lot to atone for and a lot to think about shouldn’t be tossing around words like cowardly.”

Yep, Joan. You nailed that one.
