He called Lindsey Graham in despair. Listen to these people, McCain said. Why would I want to be the leader of a party of such a**holes?.......

Among the many juicy, anonymously-sourced passages in Game Change........

McCain aides John Weaver and Mark Salter begged McCain to ease up. He was already the face of the Iraq surge. Now he was becoming the face of what opponents called “amnesty.” Just tone down the rhetoric, his advisers pleaded.

“McCain refused. He was disgusted by republicans in Congress and talk radio gasbags such as rush Limbaugh who bashed immigrants. “They’re going to destroy the fucking party,” he would say. As McCain’s town hall meetings devolved into shouting matches over immigration, the candidate let his frustration show through. He called Lindsey Graham in despair. Listen to these people, McCain said. Why would I want to be the leader of a party of such a**holes?”

Why the American people turned on the biggest A-Hole in the Republican party.

Globalist “America-last” bubble-brains like McCain are destroying the GOP, destroying American jobs, and destroying our economy.

China is replacing America in every way (except of course freedom) - and the globalists are HELPING China destroy America.

For a few dollars more, for them. It’s treason.

Who said we really wanted you in the first place. If there would have been ANYONE in the GOP who could have won the election McCain would have been dumped in a heartbeat. Hey, McCain we are trying to get rid of RINOs as yourself.

McCain is laboring under the delusion that he is a Repub Party leader. He is just saying what he has always thought. Bet his private meetings with Teddie were even worse.

Now, now, calm down. That was a whole year ago. McCain says he’s a real conservative now.

Just like Lindsey Graham, Michael Steele, and Dede Scozzafava.

John has already stayed too long. It is hard/difficult to let go of the government tit, I know; but necessary.

John is tired, weak, pale, old, that changed his principles and joined the gravy train long ago. MO

And ‘no’, we do not want to have his wife run and seek his office.

God help us in our day, in Jesus name, amen.

The Politico is quite frankly just another DNC rag. I can’t trust anything coming from it.

That's exactly correct. Sarah Palin will have to differentiate herself, loudly and clearly, from these globalist commie RINO traitors.

Enough of the foreplay already!, why doesn’t McCain just put a (D) beside his name and be done with it?

Both parties are parties of a**holes. But the democrat party has more of them.
