Perhaps one of the reasons Senator John McCain has been so consistently wrong about world events is that he is living in an alternate reality. Over the weekend Senator McCain told Face The Nation that former Ukraine President Viktor Yanukovich was “overthrown peacefully by the people of Ukraine.” Regardless of how you feel about Viktor Yanukovich it is flat out wrong to claim he peacefully removed from office – obviously and comprehensively wrong. It is so amazingly inaccurate that in order to to say it you either have to be a shameless liar or mentally defective.

Still, the focus is and should be on the quickest, easiest way and thus most dangerous way to kill a lot of people: guns.

Sen. John McCain has signed on to Lindsey Graham’s plan to slow down every confirmation over the issue of Benghazi, even the confirmation of people who’s positions have nothing to do with security or foreign policy.

How and why evangelicals persist, what motivates their zealotry and what they would do with power if they got it—these are the “What-ifs” Frederic C. Rich asks through his characters and a counterfactual storyline that takes readers from a key historical tipping point—the election and subsequent death of John McCain in 2008—through plausible plot twists and fictional conflicts that remain deeply rooted in the very real people, politics and ideologies that even today are significant forces in American life.
