  • John McCain's Bitter Exit

    Eagle Action Report ^ | 9/1/2018 | Felicia Tweedy
    McCain’s memorial remembrances were filled with themes of unity, inclusion, and compromise. They stressed how McCain was someone who could reach across the aisle, find consensus, and put differences aside to bring people together for the greater good. It’s too bad McCain’s final actions contradicted that message... Senator McCain had a perfect opportunity to be the “maverick” of his reputation. He could have been the unifier. He could have done the right thing by allowing even those he had unresolved issues with, differences with, to come and pay their respects and to honor him. He could have shown the country,...

    The New York Times ^ | Aug. 29, 2018 | Michael D. Shear
    WASHINGTON — Not long after Senator John McCain learned last summer that he had terminal brain cancer, he began convening meetings every Friday in his Capitol Hill office with a group of trusted aides. The subject was his funeral. He obsessed over the music, selecting the Irish ballad “Danny Boy” and several patriotic hymns. He choreographed the movement of his coffin from Arizona, his home state, to Washington. And in April, when he knew the end was coming, he began reaching out to Republicans, Democrats and even a Russian dissident with requests that they deliver eulogies and serve as pallbearers....
  • CNN: Palin Not Invited to McCain Funeral Because She Began Era of “Vitriol”

    FinkelBlog ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Remember Ted Kennedy in 1987 claiming that if the Senate confirmed Robert Bork to the Supreme Court, “women would be forced into back-alley abortions [and] blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters?” Not vitriolic. How about the 1991 “high-tech lynching” by Senate Dems of Clarence Thomas? Again, not vitriolic. Or the infamous NAACP dragging-death ad of 2000 in which George W. Bush was accused of killing the victim all over again? Nope, not vitriolic. No, the political vitriol didn’t begin until 2008. And it was Sarah Palin’s fault. That is, if you believe CNN, and, apparently, John McCain. This morning,...

    I was going to send flowers but have decided instead to send a contribution to Trump 2020. Even in your final days on this good earth you spewed anger and hate. Now I hear that Sarah Palin, a loyal VP running mate, is not invited to your funeral. Have a nice day.- Sincerely, just one of the millions who had no choice but to cast their vote for you in 08.
  • Trump knows his base, stays tribal on McCain

    The Boston Herald ^ | August 28, 2018 | Michael Graham
    If you’re confused by President Trump’s reluctance to celebrate the life of Sen. John McCain, it’s because Trump knows something you don’t: his base. The Red Hats And Talk Radio wing of American politics has long had a problematic relationship with the Arizona senator. And by “problematic,” I mean, they hated his guts. For years, McCain was the poster child of the kind of Republicanism they loathed, the kind of Republicanism that eventually led many of these voters to turn to Trump in the first place. And if he were still with us, McCain would say “You’re damn right.” New...

    John McCain passed away Saturday night at the age of 81 after a battle with brain cancer but that did not stop him from taking one last shot at President Trump from beyond the grave. McCain’s farewell message to the nation was read aloud in Phoenix on Monday afternoon by Rick Davis, a former campaign manager for McCain.

    Associated Press ^ | Aug. 27, 2018 9:03 AM EDT
    The flags at the White House, which were lowered over the weekend to mark the death of Sen. John McCain, are back at full-staff. The flags at the U.S. Capitol, meanwhile, remained at half-staff on Monday to honor the Arizona Republican, who died Saturday of brain cancer. […] U.S. Flag Code states that flags be lowered “on the day of death and the following day for a Member of Congress.” After Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts died in 2009, President Barack Obama ordered flags at the White House be flown at half-staff for five days. …

    The Washington Post's Post Politics Blog ^ | January 28, 2015 | Sean Sullivan
    How would Sarah Palin do if she decides to run for president? According to her former top-of-the-ticket running mate, quite well. "She's very interesting. And I'm sure she'd do great," Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) told The Washington Post Wednesday in a brief interview. After the 2008 presidential election, McCain has consistently praised Palin, despite her clash with his campaign team. Palin has also defended McCain. The former Alaska governor campaigned for the senator in his 2010 reelection bid....

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | October 28, 2014 | Tony Lee
    Deal with it. Former Alaska Governor and Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin said she hopes to again run for elected office. In a Tuesday interview on Fox Business with Stuart Varney, Palin gleefully acknowledged that getting back in the political arena will "bug the crap" out of liberals and the mainstream press. [...] Nobody has ever exposed the mainstream media for who they truly are, including their double standards and ugly biases, than Palin. In addition, she has also allowed opportunistic and jealous Republicans--especially insecure male losers who may have unresolved issues from their past that they can't seem to let...
  • Palin on the wane: She's even ticking off Christians (The Left worried about Christianity?)

    05/02/2014 11:02:30 AM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 45 replies
    It's generally a waste of space to reference Sarah Palin, which is why she so rarely appears here. She long ago devolved into a cartoon, and her clout (such as it was) continues to wane. She's like the incoherently choleric aunt you see once a year at Thanksgiving. She's like the real-life version of Kristin Wiig's brain-addled Aunt Linda. But... (You knew there'd be a But.) But every great once in a while, John McCain's Hail Mary gift to America says something so scintillating that we'd be remiss to ignore it. Her remark earlier this week about the religious virtues...
  • Sarah Palin Calls for a “Convention of the States” to Stop Obama

    Sarah Palin renewed her call for a “Convention of the States” today. She has joined conservatives like George Will and Mark Levin in supporting a constitutional, Article V “Convention of the States” in order to propose specific amendments designed to rein in and limit the federal government running wild under President Obama. More and more people, legislators and states continue to join the growing movement calling for a “Convention of the States”.

    Salon ^ | June 29, 2013 | Frederic C. Rich
    What if McCain/Palin won, then McCain died -- and a terror attack followed. Apocalyptic fiction from a nightmare It is obvious in retrospect that only an external attack like that on 7/22 could have saved the Palin presidency. Without it, would any of what followed have happened? I doubt it. The Democrats would have recaptured both the White House and Senate that fall. The culture wars would have simmered on, but the evangelical movement’s momentum on the path toward political power would have been lost. I would be installed in my corner office downtown, practicing law. I would probably have...
  • Sarah Palin to Headline Dinner Recalling Euthanasia of Terri Schiavo

    Life News ^ | Steven Ertelt
    Governor Sarah Palin will headline a dinner recalling the life and painful euthanasia death of Terri Schiavo, who was subjected to two weeks of starvation and dehydration by a husband who no longer wanted to care of her. Though the events surrounding her death were very difficult for Terri and her family, the foundation that bears her name is turning a negative into a positive. The national controversy that erupted over the court-ordered decision that ended Terri Schiavo’s life by removing her feeding tube in 2005 has been channeled into a positive effort of awareness, education and advocacy through the...

In January 2009, Sarah Palin had the world on a string. A potential Republican presidential field-clearer for the presidency, every sentence she uttered was news. A Fox News contract awaited her.

    The Omaha World-Herald ^ | August 4, 2012 | Rick Ruggles
    Sarah Palin heaped praise Saturday on Deb Fischer, the Republican running against Bob Kerrey for one of Nebraska's seats in the U.S. Senate. Palin had just eaten lunch with Fischer and was taking a look at items in the La Vista Cabela's, talking with a couple customers and signing a man‘s cap. She called Fischer a “hard-working, very grounded, down-to-earth, patriotic American woman.” Palin, the Republican vice presidential candidate four years ago, said that as a Nebraskan, Fischer knows agriculture and could “help common-sense, constitutional Americans.” “We need more of that when it comes to regulation and policy,” Palin said...

    The New Republic ^ | October 4, 2011 | Ed Kilgore
    We’re at a very strange juncture in the 2012 presidential contest. Rick Perry continues to struggle, as Mitt Romney savagely exploits his offensive-to-conservatives position on immigration and the Texan deals with new, potentially damaging revelations of a racially insensitive name for a hunting camp rented by his family. But Romney’s not benefitting much in the polls, and he remains a persona non grata to many conservatives. And the candidate with the current buzz, Herman Cain, is many miles away from being taken seriously by GOP elites as a potential nominee. Politics, like nature, abhors a vacuum. Late last week Reuters...
