You have got to be freaking kidding me. Mr. I Was The Nations Number One Illegal Alien Amnesty Champion Before I Was Against It/Mr. Call Me Maaaaaverick Except When I Need The Right To Get Re-elected is attacking his erstwhile friends in the Eastern press for creating the impression that he is a desperate political opportunist clinging to entrenched incumbency. Here is your emetic of the day, via The Hill:
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Monday blamed the Eastern press for planting the idea he has changed his positions on key issues in recent months. McCain dismissed the notion that he has tacked to the right on matters such as immigration and climate change in order to beat back a primary challenge from former Rep. J.D. Hayworth.
Asked by Politics Daily about comments his close friend and colleague Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) made about his move away from edgy past positions because Johns got a primary. Hes got to focus on getting reelected, McCain responded, Lindsey knows that I dont change in my positions.
I have not changed in my positions. I know how popular it is for the Eastern press to paint me as having changed positions, he said. Thats not true. I know theyre going to continue to say it. Its fundamentally false. Not only am I sure that theyll say it, youll say it. Youll write it. And Ive just grown to accept that.
Funny. McCain sure didnt have a problem sucking up to the Eastern press his real base at his cozy backyard thank you barbecue for the elite media just a few short years ago....
Straight talk from my non-Eastern blog about McCains motion sickness-inducing, election-year lurches on immigration and climate change speaks for itself:...
That's great! I believe you nailed it!
You make something idiotproof, they'll make a better idiot
McCain is getting senile and hallucinatory. He hears his media gods telling him what to do and say, but he can’t remember what he has done or said.
Just one more week and we’ll know whether the voters of Arizona will continue to inflict this lying weasel on the rest of the country. It’s difficult to understand how anyone would vote for someone with his record of flip/flops, backstabbing and undermining his own party, as Michelle Malkin has chronicled so well over the past few years.
What - - - are we splitting the nation between East and West now?
