In York, Pennsylvania, today, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., continued to speak emotionally about the crisis in Georgia.

McCain referred to the President of that former Soviet Republic as “Misha” Saakashvili.

“He knows the thoughts and prayers and support of the American people are with that brave little nation as they struggle today for their freedom and independence,” McCain said, per ABC News’ Bret Hovell.

“He wanted me to say thanks to you, and give you his heartfelt thanks for the support of the American people for this tiny little democracy far away from the United States of America. And I told him that I know I speak for every American when I say to him, ‘Today we are all Georgians.’"
