Real John McCain quote is eerily similar to Fake "The Onion" quote

Fake Onion story matches real story later in the day?

It was bound to happen sooner or later right? By now you've heard of Obama withdrawing "US Combat Troops" from Iraq. John McCain felt this was a good time to praise George W. Bush. Why? I have no idea but for some reason he thought it was a good idea. He sent out this tweet:
Last American combat troops leave Iraq. I think President George W. Bush deserves some credit for victory.
Apparently John McCain was living in an alternate universe during the Bush Presidency. Does he not remember that it was because of lies that the Bush administration told the American people that those soldiers ended up in Iraq in the first place? Does he not remember that Dubya ignorantly claimed victory years ago?

That's another blog post for another time but what makes that McCain quote even funnier is a fake McCain quote that appeared in The Onion earlier today:
"President Obama deserves zero praise for this borderline accomplishment," Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) told reporters. "After all, if it weren't for President Bush ordering the initial invasion of Iraq and making it his central foreign policy initiative, we wouldn't be here right now awkwardly celebrating the muddled outcome of whatever the hell it is we've been doing over there for the past seven years."
