Skip to comments.National Review sells out (was threatened?) and endorses McCain

What has happened to National Review? The magazine started by William F. Buckley that once stood for conservative libertarian principles has gone out of its way twice now to endorse liberal Republican John McCain for Senate in the Republican primary over the very conservative JD Hayworth. Hayworth has a lifetime rating from the American Conservative Union of 98% over his 12 years in Congress; the same lifetime rating as the most conservative Senator in Congress, Jim DeMint. McCain has an 81% lifetime rating. JD clearly comes from the conservative wing of the Republican Party, McCain comes from the liberal wing. It is peculiar why National Review, the magazine for conservatives, would endorse the liberal Republican who has made a career out of opposing the conservative principles of the Republican Party, which he spins by calling himself a "maverick;" instead of the plainly obvious "liberal."

WTF you predictable SOB. Get a brain you knee-jerk simpleton. If AZ can’t do better than Hayworth, they deserve McCain.
Yeah ball-less. It would be awful to replace the illegal alien coddling, global warming championing, 1st amendment stripping, 2nd amendment confused, nanny state, tax cut hating, backstabbing RINO with a conservative.
I was tempted to respond with piss-off pissant, but resisted the temptation.
You could use Sail on Sail on Sailor, but the Beach Boys have it trademarked.
