Reader Opinion: Follow McCain's lead

A great man has been laid to rest.

While I have very little respect for the Republican Party, and even less for its leadership, with some exceptions, John McCain is one of those exceptions.

Watching some of his Republican colleagues praise him, and remain silent while Trump disgraces the office of the president, makes them degrade their offices.

John McCain, while admittedly not perfect, still showed more dignity than those who kept silent. It would serve them well if they took a page from John McCain's book of life and followed it.

When they look in a mirror, what do they tell themselves?
