A McCain redux: Because it matters

With so much riding on the Arizona senate race between decades-long-Washington-insider John McCain and conservative challenger J.D. Hayworth, it is worth taking a fresh look at this Michelle Malkin article. There is now a mere 7-point spread between the two men according to the most recent Rasmussen polling.

In Conservatives: Beware of McCain Regression Syndrome, Malkin bluntly reminds us of the Maverick’s myriad shortcomings. She notes that as he runs to the right to protect his seat, McCain’s political machine is meddling across the country to install liberal and establishment Republicans over conservatives, to secure his legacy.

We are reminded of the extent to which John McCain supported Obama’s pork-laden, fraud-ridden stimulus package — voting for the $700 billion TARP bailout, the $25 billion auto bailout, a $300 billion mortgage bailout, and the first $85 billion AIG bailout.

McCain was wrong on the constitutionality of the free-speech-stifling McCain-Feingold campaign finance regulations. He was wrong to side with the junk-science global warming activists in pushing onerous carbon caps on America. He was on the wrong side of every Chicken Little-driven bailout. He was wrong in opposing enhanced CIA interrogation methods that have saved countless American lives and averted jihadi plots. And he was spectacularly wrong in teaming with the open-borders lobby to push a dangerous illegal alien amnesty

This is Malkin at her finest, unflinchingly exposing McCain for the liberal he is.

    Thanks for this! Excellent talking points for the “water cooler,” and family gatherings where too many vote for names they’ve heard and can’t articulate anything, good or bad, about the candidates. Although I know superficial talk is best with this breed o’ cat, the future of this nation and state are too important to abstain from talking politics.

    To hear a 4-minute musical account of John McCain’s voting record, set to the old-time tune of “Frankie & Johnny,” go to http://www.theterryandersonshow.com
    and scroll down below Dick Armey’s photo to the hyperlink “McCain’s Got to Go.”

    Terry’s listeners gave the song such rave reviews that they asked for its posting to a site for sharing.

    Hearing a musical version of the positions and votes McCain has taken over the years will surprise many Arizonans.

    I love Michelle – she is all over McCain exposing the real facts – not Johnny’s “facts”.

    Wow! good stuff here! I’m copying the link to send out to my email list, here AND out of state. Too many people think this liberal is an icon. Not because they have a shred of actual information about him, but just because he’s been around so long and was a military hero fifty years ago. I appreciate his and ALL the others service to our country, but he has been screwing us ever since he first entered politics.

    HotAir just put up that McCain now wants troops on the border – what a tool. Using Mr. Krentz’s tragic death (which should have never happened with SECURE borders) for his own political gain. McCain is scum.

  7. Doug Johnson says:

    John McCain will do or say whatever will save his ass, along the rest of him, from the embarrassment of the stunning defeat he surely deserves and will get from an electorate that is fundamentally tired of his BS. Count me among them.

    Make no mistake (to paraphrase my favorite Prez), once McShame is safely re-elected him & Grahmnesty will switch spots again with McShame playing the
    ‘maverick” liberal douchebag leaving the SC junior (at least in brainpower) senator to play the principled conservative until he gets himself reelected. It’s a vicious cycle; DON’T FALL FOR IT ARIZONA!!!!!

    John Shadegg voted for the $700 Billion TARP! McStain Junior is thankfully leaving his post. Don’t reelect his dumber brother Jim Waring.

    Sam Crump is the dependable conservative we need to replace Shadegg. Crump has already endorsed JD Hayworth. Of course, Pamela Gorman cannot endorse against grandpappy McCain because she is too tied in with McCain’s whole cabal.
