ETA...In fact, I'm not sure I even want anyone to speak at my funeral. Just dump my S# into a #10 coffee can and pour the ashes out over some mountain range in Alaska.


The dumpers just need to make sure they aren't standing downwind, or just make sure that John Goodman isn't dumping them.

Yeah, but McCain's not dead yet. So it's perfectly fine for a living man to decide who he doesn't want to show up at his funeral. People put all kinds of crazy stuff in their wills too, which by your reasoning shouldn't matter since they'll be dead when it's time for the living to carry out those decisions anyway.

Or to put it another way, why is trump entitled to go to McCain's funeral? Also, if he wanted to mend the fences with McCain, he could try doing that right now while they're both still alive. But if he doesn't want to make peace with McCain, then it makes sense that he wouldn't be invited.

ETA: Just saw you added something. Ironically, Islamic funerals are typically very quick and to the point (as in, a matter of 1-3 days or sooner if possible). The goal is to bury the body as soon as possible after a specific cleansing ritual. We don't normally do that week long "keep the body on display for people to come by and view it" thing, either. So I actually agree with the idea of just getting it over with, and then them using the saved money on something that will help out in the world or even for my loved ones to use the saved money to celebrate putting up with me for this long.

However, there would literally be no place in that for my enemies. I wouldn't want them helping to clean my naked body, wouldn't want them there during the flurry of activity to get my loved ones in & out before it's time for the burial, and definitely wouldn't them to share in any festivities or post-burial "celebrations".

Or maybe like many people around the world he respects President Obama and feels that it would be an honor.
Not everybody lives their lives entrenched in a political ideology.

LMAO! That is hilarious... and believable. I must say you made my mind run amok with positions on how Lindsey Graham would want to be laid to rest with McCain, none of which I will go into because it would be wildly inappropriate. Just let your imagination run wild. Thanks for the early morning laugh.

If you would. Allow me to help a little.
I'll say it now so I won't be too late.

Some say he was a rouge
Some said he was odd
Now that he is dead
Most just say "Thank God"

Oh, and then take all the money you saved and go have an awesome breakfast at Gwennie's in Anchorage. That place rocks!! (Don't forget to get the reindeer sausage either!)



You're new up here, ya? Gwennie's is alright, but man there are better breakfasts available. Try Granny B's on Tudor off Minnesota, South out the Old Seward past O'Malley, or Bear Tooth on the weekends when they serve breakfast.

I don't want to be cremated, just chop me up and toss me into Deep Creek as chum and catch some buts.

This comming from McCain a war hero... and really in the face of draft dodging trump since he would obviously be the person being snubbed..


Obviously, he should want the present sitting by REPUBLICAN president...

But who respects trump and wants him giving your eulogy???


No one...

You're right. We need that war hero Obama there to give the eulogy. I am sure Trump could Give A F Less he will not be there.

McCain was advising Obama just after he was elected so it is only fitting also.

McCain likely HATES trump.. he is too old to care about another election and knows history will remember trump as a bafoon. So he refuses to be part of it.

McCain knows trump will be historically remembered as a baffoon at best..

He doesn’t want Trump’s stink to mar his legacy...


He isn’t gonna win anymore elections, money isn’t an issue.. he has no reason to pretend for anyone.

I don't think anyone much cares who McCain does or does not want at his funeral, but he seems to be setting the entire thing up as a political side-show . If that's how he wants to be remembered ... again, that's on him, but the Wellstone Memorial did the Democrats no favors when they turned a funeral into a political side-show. I don't expect this will do much better even if it's what McCain wants.

McCain is a warrior..

NOTHING beats praise from a worthy opponent to a warrior...


Scipio and Hannibal, Lee and grant..

It is the highest praise one can get..

Trump wouldn’t know anything about that since he is neither honorable or a warrior

A) He is trying to separate his legacy from the stench of trump..

B) to a soldier NOTHING beats praise from a worthy opponent..


Trump is no no way worthy to do anything but bang pornstars behind his wife’s back..

Will McCain fake his death just to watch his funeral before he dies? sheesh.

He would get a few years in some island Eden and serve as a backup scapegoat should the sex cult thing be publicly exposed. "The dead guy did it".

Just a thought. Could be wrong.

There is no higher praise to a warrior than the praise of a worthy opponent..


Trump and apparently most of his supporters don’t know amythi g about that..
