Candy Crush Saga

Why do the Sunday news shows feature so much John McCain?
He’s on those shows so freakin’ much, it’s driving me insane!
All that he ever talks about is fighting one more war,
Even though we don’t have one clue just what we’re fighting for.

CNN’s Candy Crowley finally gave us one reason
Why McCain shows up so frequently, regardless of the season.
But please, Candy, ask him one question not involving ISIS–
Like, why does he no longer talk about the climate crisis?
