Posted on 07/28/2011 9:47:13 AM PDT by Nachum
In a fit of anti-Tea Party rage, Sen. John McCain tossed a media exposure lifesaver out to former Delaware senatorial candidate Christine ODonnell, insulting the Tea Party for having launched her to the Republican nomination. ODonnell graciously accepted the opportunity to make headlines once again, releasing as epic a statement as we havent seen since the Homeric tribute to Newt Gingrich last May.
Needless to say, being dismissed as a crazy candidate did not sit well with the Senate hopeful known mostly for having to clarify whether or not she was a witch. In a short and sweet statement, she reminded Sen. McCain of the nightmare that was his presidential race as proof that nominating Tea Partiers like her (and not RINOs like him) is the key to success:
I think that it is inappropriate to insult the judgment of the majority of Republicans in Nevada and Delaware and that the implication that nominating RINOs somehow means we win was irrefutably disproven by McCains own presidential candidacy debacle. After that nightmare, McCain had to veer right so fast he almost got whiplash from all his flip-flopping just to keep his Senate seat. It doesnt help him to attack those conservatives and Tea Partiers who graciously gave him another chance to keep his job.

Short of Obama, McCain is the fetid piece-of-feces-masquarading-as-a-human-being I hate the most. I no longer honor his military service. I only wish the VC had tortured him more, perhaps to the point that he didnt make it. This neoMarxist scumbag has done more damage to real America, then he did to his POW-mates who he betrayed when in Vietnam. This horrid and reprehensible monster, this hideous, vile weed, needs to disappear. Not enough bad stuff can happen to him.
Once again, thank you Arizona for re electing this POS.
McCain was out of bounds, I assume his speech went into congressional records.
Sorry John, you have craw fished too much. You are irrelevant. To bad he has a vote in the Senate.
Don’t you mean, thank you Sarah Palin?
She is gutless if she doesn’t call him out for this rhetoric.
Plenty of us Zonies feel the shame thanks to those that re-elected him, I assure you.
McCains past heroism deserves the honors accorded to Benedict Arnolds leg. Honor it, bury it and be done with it!
Its become increasingly regrettable that McCain did not emulate Nathan Hale while in NVA custody,
Had he done so, he would have lived on in history as one of the heroic martyrs to the cause of Freedom and would have had buildings, roads and schools named after him.
Instead, he will leave public life as a quintessential political sleaze and the abject failure who enabled obama.
It is well beyond time for him to accept the fact that the honorable route for him is immediate resignation and retirement. Arizona can do so much better!
All I can say is that it must have been one hel* of a deal that mac, the crybaby liar, daddy offered McNut to cause him to throw his running mate, tea party members and misc. other people under the bus in favor of the corrupt dumb-o-crats and there Anit-American POTUS.
This POS is a perfect example of why we need term limits.
McStain... nuff said
There’s nothing more offensive to a real sense of civility and honor than a nasty, arrogant, backstabbing, social opportunist....they are self-elevated, crawling creatures in the world of humanity.
Mike Castle would be so helpful here if he were in the Senate [/sarc]
In point of fact, Castle would have been more harmful. He would be quick to compromize and be in the spotlight. Coons now holds the hard left line - his influence is insignificant. RINO’s are more damaging than hard lefties.
just please get out of our way, old farts........just get out of our way..
He spent that dime many, many years ago.
Now he is nothing but a bitter, brain damaged, doddering, old Rino fart.
I think Sharon Angle let Lord of Tarp have it much better lol
By your fruits you will know them.. Jesus Matt 7
If it looks like a lib, talks like a lib and acts like it lib it is ... a McCain?
He is never going to get out of your way unless 'We the People' make him. McCain works for 'Fedzilla Incorporated' like so many others in DC. Self important social fascists do not work for you or the rest of the American economic slave/peons of the TEA party.
we’re really and truly sorry about that. I left the space blank and did not vote for anyone for senator. I voted JD Hayworth in the primary, but really he wouldn’t have been much better. it cost mccain $22M to hold onto his seat last time
Same with Paul Helmke who ran as a RINO against Evan Bayh in Indiana a few years back. Even my dad didn’t vote for Paul and voted for the Libertarian Candidate. Where is Paul at today ? President of Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

When you put it that way...................
WOW - just WOW.
Post of the day!
MacPAIN sabotaged his campaign time after time! Guaranteeing the Victory to the Muslim Terrorist! Why did Mac PAIN throw the Election?
Did the HUSSEIN Campaign know something that MacPAIN didn’t want made Public that badly that he would sell America down the River to keep it quiet??
I have friends in AZ... After McCrap beat JD in the primary, I floated the idea of Repubs/Tea partiers to cross over and vote for the Dem to FINALLY end McCain, His wife and most especially his daughter...
They laughed at me and told me I was out of my mind...
Spoke to them this morning... Oh what a change of heart!
If anyone cared what you thought John, you’d be president right now.
Now get back to your hard work of reaching across the aisle to take our money and freedom.
Heard McLame on Fox last night....what a frakkin joke he is.
Just go call yourself a liberal and get it over with John. That is EXACTLY what you are. You aren’t even a Republican and you are so far from a Conservative, you wouldn’t even know one if they bit you on the ass.
And by the way, it’s way past time you retired, you old coot. Enough of your elitist, America bashing, LEFT wing drivel. Just STFU and get out already!!!
This Frances Martel’s spin on O’Donnell defending herself after McCain’s completely unnecessary attack on her is what is remarkable here. What was O’Donnell supposed to say, “Thank you sir, may I have another?”
I didn’t vote for the maggot for Senate, EVER, or for any other position.
As we know, the Republican establishment is to blame, not to mention his millions to buy the seat.
But the nasty, vile, hate-filled spew that comes from those who have no clue about AZ is disturbing on any McCommunist thread. Yesterday someone even posted death wishes to ALL Arizonans.
You will never have the guts Sarah does - no matter how hard you try! You are displaying the Barry tactic- point the finger - WEAK!!
You know, even if Christine O’Donnell were a witch, I’d take her sanity over that of McCain. Juan is an oddball among oddballs. You just KNOW that Gov. Palin is rolling her eyes over this nut’s latest statements.
How do you really feel?
John McCain = the Ike Clanton of the Senate
That was GOOD.
Calling out McCain would be STUPID for Gov. Palin to do. There are some things in life that you must leave to others.
BTW, this latest budget fiasco shows why exactly it would have been worthless to have elected Mike Castle senator. I’d vote for O’Donnell ever time!
His wife and big mouth daughter are liberals disguised in expensive dress. Can someone escort him across the aisle or can AZ voters impeach him?
However, they did have a conservative to vote for; so we, surely, can question the mindset of the majority of AZ voters.
Your post made very little sense.
McPain=One sick, senile old man that needs his PJ’s, slippers, a recliner, and a book, but not our attention.
Yes, Castle would have been worthless. O’Donnell was the right choice.
Palin is the only one who can call out McCain. It may be “stupid” politically, but I’m looking for leaders, not politicians.
McCain is doing as much to harm liberty as Obama at this point.
She needs the chumps who like McCain to vote for her. She must not burn her bridge with McCain lest she wishes to end her own national viability. There are plenty of others who are lambasting Juan’s idiocy today.
You weren't around for byeltsin, but he'd write a little like this. Here's a few examples:
howlin - dales - patrickevofreekshenry - dirtboy - appypappy ... cant say --- what I would do!
STATIST - maniacs - running show! Make none! No - sense.... mcdonalds -- wendys -- carpet munchers....
“Palin is the only one” is because she saddled us with him by her endorsement in the 2010 AZ primary. She needs to take responsibility.
Since Palin isn’t running, I plan to vote for Bachmann in the CA primary. If Palin does decide to run, I will straddle the fence between the two and let things play out. If one of the two wins in Iowa, it will essentially spell the end for the other, in which case I’ll have an easy choice.
Sarah is the more dynamic personality, but I think Michelle is a stronger conservative.
So Palin shouldn’t call out McCain for bashing two Mama Grizzlies while on the floor of the Senate?
You may want to buy yourself a new “thinking cap”, because yours either isn’t working, or you’ve lost it.
Do we have a McCain file? If not, that is the perfect entry to start one.
Good post. It should be on billboards across the nation!! People WILL start thinking!
All you ‘anti Palin’ groupies are now saying “ Sarah is the only one that can...” I find it quite funny!!
Trust me, not only is my thinking cap on in place - so is my discernment cap! However, it’s good to see you believe a private citizen can have power. That’s why private citizen, Sarah Palin, is one of us - We the People.
I believe those ladies can take care of themselves very nicely and, perhaps, they may prefer it that way. Something else you didn’t think of. That’s ok - Palin supporters will do your thinking for you.
