Hilarious.

Why, to think that if hollowed Sen. McCarthy were alive today, he might be subjected to satiric ridicule in a free press by the likes of The Onion, and maybe not even realize it -- well, it's a real pseudo-tragedy, I tells ya.

"I think that Chuck Hagel would be excellent in the position." The fact that Obama picked him out of a lineup of former Republican military retirees says enough for me to question his judgement.
That, and his inflammatory comments about 'the Jewish lobby' and his support for a separate state for Palistinian militants all reasons enough to deny his nomination. Other than that, he may be qualified.
