John McCain: New GOP Guard 'Wacko Birds'

(By Larry O'Connor, Big Government) - John McCain may have finally lost it. In an interview with Huffington Post he referred to Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) as "wacko birds." 

“They were elected, nobody believes that there was a corrupt election, anything else,” McCain said. 
“But I also think that when, you know, it’s always the wacko birds on right and left that get the media megaphone." 

Asked to clarify, McCain said he was referencing ”Rand Paul, Cruz, Amash, whoever.”
