Senator McCain Calls Protesters 'Low Life Scum'

John McCain really hates it when certain people exercise their right to free speech!

Senator John McCain isn't a happy camper today, but then, when is he ever?

The Hill:

Protesters from the group Code Pink chanted, "Arrest Henry Kissinger for war crimes!" and raised signs in the air as Kissinger entered the Senate Armed Services Committee hearing room.

McCain, the chairman of the committee, at first asked, "Could someone find out where the Capitol Police is?"

Kissinger sat calmly in his witness chair, as protesters and photographers gathered around.

The protesters were objecting to Kissinger's past roles in the Nixon administration during the Vietnam War, the bombing of Cambodia and other issues.

As the protesters were led out by police, McCain said, "I've been a member of this committee for many years, and I've never seen anything as disgraceful and outrageous and despicable as the last demonstration."

Finally, McCain said, "Get out of here, you low-life scum."

If you're going to have a hearing celebrating war and warmongers, you should expect some protests from citizens who object to having their children maimed and scarred for life in the name of oil. Just sayin'.
