(NY TIMES) Senator John McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential nominee known for his independent streak over more than three decades in the Senate, has been diagnosed with brain cancer, his office disclosed Wednesday evening in a statement from the Mayo Clinic.

The statement said the medical condition was discovered after Mr. McCain, 80, a Republican from Arizona who was just re-elected to a sixth term in November, underwent a procedure to remove a blood clot above his left eye at the Mayo hospital in Phoenix.

“Subsequent tissue pathology revealed that a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma was associated with the blood clot,” said the statement. “The senator and his family are reviewing further treatment options with his Mayo Clinic care team. Treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation.”

Mr. McCain is chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee and a leading proponent of using aggressive military force overseas, most notably calling for the downfall of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad since 2011.

I’ve been saying this for years! All you had to do was listen to the man’s foreign policy ravings… Something was obviously very, very wrong!

who would doubt that cancer is in his brain. If he was diagnosed with ass cancer, it would prove that his brain is in the ass.

As if we did not know that there was something wrong about his brain. Tongue out.

BTW. That is the most aggressive form of brain cancer.
