Professor Jonathan Graubart, is a political science professor at San Diego State University. He recently made a highly inappropriate comment after finding out about Sen. John McCain’s brain Tumor, stating,“McCain is a war criminal and, more to the point, someone who as a politician has championed horrifying action and been lousy on state commitment to public health. So dying or not, he’s a risible public figure.” He also took this chance to criticize his views on health insurance, and bash him, using him as an apparent contrast to Einstein, saying that, after comparing the two, “this analogy should not be taken too seriously. McCain is certainly no Einstein and I don’t just mean on brains. Einstein had very appealing humanist instincts, as a socialist, antiwar, anti-imperialist, and anti-statist Zionist."
