We think McStain is actually showing signs of senile dementia.
Why don’t go on trip back to Vietnam, wreck just one more plane for the thrill of it and never come back.
You are clearly senile and demonstrably unAmerican ....
In the 1980’s McCain was bought and paid for by Charles Keating. He, and the other four Democrat Senators comprising the Keating Five should have been tried and convicted for influence peddling, if not receiving bribes, by the George H.W. Bush administration. Unfortunately one of the Keating Five was John Glenn and there was no way America’s first man to orbit the earth was going to be prosecuted.
Glenn and the rest of Keating’s hip pocket Senators skated, including McCain. Keating was prosecuted and convicted. The American taxpayer was fleeced to bail out the S&L’s. In 2008 McCain suspended his presidential campaign during the financial crisis to race back to Washington and participate in the bailout negotiations for the Wall Street banks. Apparently he perceived his experience with the S&L bailout in the early 1990’s made him the man of the hour. As usual he looked like a fool.
No doubt if he caves on registration he’ll be featured on the Sunday talk show circuit and praised by the commentators. Perhaps he’ll take his boy Lindsay along with him for the victory lap.
With respect to honoring McCain for his war service, remember Benedict Arnold was a war hero for the American colonies until he changed sides. We do not “honor” him for his service today.
Wild Bill for America about Leftists with guns.
I’m not going to even comment on that.
And the Keating Five scandal he was involved in?
Has it been posted to GoogTube yet?
McCain/Boehner 2016 - let the republican leadership lead!
Can you imagine how bad *that* ticket would do? The only real question is why these old fools have any power at all.
First of all, McCain is just another Useful Idiot.
Secondly, how will this ridiculous assault on the Citizenry of this Country stop the Criminal Element from doing what Criminals do?
Want to REALLY decrease “gun violence” to single digits, make it Illegal for Democrats, Liberals and any other Brain Dead people who have ever Voted Democrat from owning ANY Firearms. The Crime problem would disappear overnight.
Ha! That’s something that would tickle elitist Rove to death.
Are there no links to that in either of those lists?
Let me go back and look again. I may have missed it.

Maybe it doesn’t exist anymore?
John McCain's Whimsical World of Conservatism by DoughtyOne
That’s a problem with old FR threads. Google the article title and you can find the original article.
I did find this you could add to your list.
Remember the Keating Five? McCains own standards would have hung him. (Mark Levin-2001)
Who needs filthy liberals when you have filthy RINOs to do their dirty work for them?
Might this be the article? It’s dated 15MAY1997.
The Pampered Politician
Arizona Senator John McCain is ready for a presidential run if the national press corps has anything to say about it
A True maverick would be one who stood up for Liberty and freedom.
Thanks for the links. There are literally hundreds of articles I could add to my links. Not much point in it anymore.
I think I recall McCain being the one who said that “we should not fear a President Obama”. He is on Zer0’s side and always has been. I trust McCain no more than I trust Obama and I completely distrust Obama.
Senator McCain, thank you for your military service. Now STFU.
At least he is used to Hate Mail .... can’t think of anything I have supported him on in years
I’ve always wondered if the fact that his father was an admiral is what cleared him of any fault in firing the missile. Then the same fact got him special treatment in the Hanoi Hilton. Many of his fellow prisoners hate his guts.
Palin could do a lot for her own self by coming out against McCain on this. She paid her dues to him. Now it is time to stand against his stupidity.
Chucky: "John go and play some solitaire and I'll get back to you to discuss your mission.
John: "Aye aye sir".
So it would be illegal, for example, to go over to your neighbors farm and lend him your rifle to shoot cans with.
Ironically, were the proposed law in effect, many of the campaign photos we have seen of politicians shooting would be evidence of a federal crime. Many of them are not the owners of the firearms, and they aren't hunting, or taking part in a State sanctioned shooting contest, or even shooting at a range "owned or occupied by a duly incorporated organization" of the necessary sort.
Apart from the obvious attempt to create a gun registry, the proposed law is just idiotic. Unless there is an exception elsewhere in the bill, it looks like it may even create problems for groups, like police departments, who need to transfer possession of weapons for training or other purposes.
JOHN MCCAIN’S ROLE IN THE USS FORRESTAL FIRE THAT LEFT 168 DEAD
Date: Wednesday, 27-Feb-2008 23:01:46
“Now You Will Know The Rest Of The Story”
McCain crashed 5 jets, plus he was responsible for the horrible USS Forrestal fire In 1967.
Surviving crewmen and those who investigated the Forrestal fire case reported that McCain deliberately ‘wet-started’ his A-4E Skyhawk to shake up the guy in the F-4 Phantom behind his A-4.
‘Wet-starts’, done either deliberately (the starter motor switch allowed kerosene to pool in the engine and give a wet start) or accidentally, shoot a large flame from the tail of the aircraft. In McCain’s case, the ‘wet-start’ ‘cooked off’ and launched the M34 Zuni rocket from the rear F-4 that punctured the Skyhawk’s fuel tank, knocked the M-65 1000 lb. bomb off it’s 500 lb. rated mount, and touched off the explosions and massive fire.
The F-4 pilot was reportedly killed in the conflagration, along with 167 of his fellow Forrestal shipmates (including those who died later from wounds suffered).
‘Wet starting’ was a common practice among young ‘hot-dog’ pilots. McCain was quickly (they were still counting the Forrestal dead) transferred to the USS Oriskany (the only Forrestal crewman to be immediately transferred).
Description: XA4D-1 Skyhawk BuNo 137812 experiencing a wet start (note the pool of JP4 on the ground and the tongue of flame from the tailpipe).
John McCain And The USS Forrestal Fire
Never knew that. When did that happen?
These are some well damnned politicians.
Gee, thanks for that link to a complete kook website. /s
It’s like my new “unpaid” job. LOL! I keep expecting to hear the MRAP pull up outside any time now and 1.4 billion rounds pointed at the house. But, I keep the thorn in place when I can. Locally as well. One of our state senators sends out e-blasts when new “anti” bills come up so we can “get someones attention”. Hopefully the high density population center o-bots are too busy with their ebt cards to pay attention to this.
He wears our distaste like a badge of honor. We’re screwed on this one. No point in calling his office.
At least about a year ago.
It’s too bad that our dumb Republican primary voters wouldn’t do a “background check” on McPain in 2007 and 2008.
Thank you for the ping.
