Spiteful and lying. If he does run, he ought to be beaten (by a conservative) as soundly as Obama beat him in 2008.

Without Palin to endorse him, he will lose in the primary.

Several retired friends living in Arizona tell me that McInsane WILL NOT be re-elected if he does run.

It's over for Johnny boy.

“led the fight in the Senate against Obama’s health care plan.”

Oops, typographical error there - should read “He led the fight in the Senate against the opponents of Obama’s health care plan.”

Palin :”So at this time, it's perplexing to see Senator McCain’s good efforts to uncover the Obama agenda being ignored and perhaps even hindered now by those wanting to censure the Arizona Senator.Despite our differences on some other issues, there is no questioning Senator McCain’s dedication to national security in spite of the White House’s agenda.

Gov. Palin: Sen. McCain Dedicated to National Security,

What do we have to do to get him to retire today? Claim he's the most conservative guy ever to grace the Senate? What would we have to say to get him to do conservative stuff?

Palin kept her integrity by limiting her praise to the national security aspect. Right now it’s pretty low on people’s list of priorities.

Obamacrat McCain is demonstrating that he has lost his sense of Honor.

Maricopa County Republicans have but one choice: begin a 2014 State-Wide Recall Petition for John “Wacko Bird” McCain.

Spiteful

McCain has been fueled by spite his whole career. Everything he's done has been motivated by spite against someone.

He could always pull an Arlen Specter and switch parties. That worked out so well for snarlin' Arlen.

The guy could have retired gracefully and went down in history as the longest serving U.S. Senator in Pennsylvania history. Instead, he clung to power until the bitter end and was dead within a year of his career ending defeat in the primary.

Ok, I don’t think you can bully McCain.

This is a guy who had a chance to leave a Vietnamese prison early and chose to stay until his fellow prisoners got out.

If he had gotten out early, his Navy career and political prospects would have been finished in the ensuing propaganda barrage from the North Vietnamese about America's privileged classes.

“What would we have to say to get him to do conservative stuff? “

You probably would have to ask him to run again because he is needed in the GOP. That is about the only way he will leave.

And yes I am serious about that. I am the same way. Anyone who tries to bully me out only makes me more determined and obstinate. The way to get me out is gentle persuasion.

That makes him a good fellow POW... but not necessarily a good Senator (or pro baseball player, or good singer, or anything else).

"No one forced him to ally with Russ Feingold to squelch our First Amendment right to (political) free speech."

Of all the things to criticize McCain for, this is the weakest.

You can thank the Supreme Court for overturning McCain-Feingold as you welcome your 11 million new neighbors from Mexico and the 1 million new H1B visa holders from India thanks to all of the filthy lucre ... er ... first amendment initiatives ... utilized by corporate lobbyists to get your congresscritters in line behind amnesty.

I never said he was a good senator. I said, you will not be able to bully the guy out. You will have to gently persuade him out. Bullying will only make him more determined. Come on. You know plenty of people who are like that.

Heh. McCain would switch countries if it kept him in office. He'd much rather be the senator from Aztlan, holding a seat in Mexico City, than be a private citizen in Arizona, USA.

True. A lot of these long-time politicians get pretty comfy where they are, and are difficult to remove... but, as citizens, it's our duty to do our best to remove them when they no longer serve the interests of the people.

McCain has outlived his political expiration date.

I swear, Palin must be indebted to McCain on some personal level we know nothing about. Perhaps he helped her father out somehow, with the IRS snooping, something like that.

Otherwise, why would she want to pay the high price for tossing bones to McCain a couple of times every single year?

It’s inexplicable really, and becoming less and less appreciated by her fans.
