The difference between the Jon Kyl and John McCain gaggles just now on Egypt/Libya:

Jon Kyl: It's like the judge telling the woman who got raped, 'You asked for it because of the way you dressed.' OK? That's the same thing. 'Well America, you should be the ones to apologize, you should have known this would happen, you should have done — what I don't know — but it's your fault that it happened.' You know, for a member of our State Department to put out a statement like that, it had to be cleared by somebody. They don't just do that in the spur of the moment.

John McCain: All I'm worried about today is Chris Stevens, his family and those who died. There will be plenty of time to talk about who said what and who did what. But the fact is, this was a planned attack by radical extremists and it's a great tragedy. I have a great question about our situation in the region and all that, but who said what and to whom, I'm going to worry about it at another time.
