Both fans and critics of Sen. John McCain applauded the announcement on Wednesday that the U.S. Navy expanded the name of guided missile destroyer USS John S. McCain to include Senator John McCain (R-AZ). Navy Secretary Richard Spencer addressed sailors aboard the USS John S. McCain in Yokosuka, Japan, in a ceremony to redesignate the ship name which previously honored Senator McCain’s father and grandfather.

The ship now honors three generations of McCains.

McCain’s office issued a statement praising his inclusion.

McCain has not been seen in public since March due to his battle with an aggressive form of brain cancer. His losing battle leaves him unable to fulfill his Senate duties. However he has been unwilling to relinquish control of his office.

  1. I’ve heard this ship has a unexplainable drift to the left and has difficulties traveling straight or turning to the right.

    The Oracle

  2. Oracle is spot on as usual. The USS John McCain will tend to list to the left and its ballast never able to provide the required stability or buoyancy. Also it will be difficult to steer it into any destination port unless it’s for a camera shot.
