BREAKING: McCain’s fumbles take center stage at AZ Prez convention

A score of anti-John McCain activists distributed hundreds of “McCain Fumbles,” five-inch pressure relief foam footballs at the Arizona Republican Presidential Preference Convention held at the Mesa Convention Center Saturday morning.

The four panels imprinted on the footballs enumerated long-held complaints conservatives have against John McCain. The messages urge voters not to renew McCain’s contract and to make him a free agent.

Word has it that AZ GOP chairman Robert Graham was not pleased with the footballs. Some railbirds were overheard opining the footballs were payback for Graham’s tyrannical behavior at the state GOP January 2015 meeting and Graham’s siding with the Republican establishment against conservative elected precinct committeemen during his terms as state GOP chair.

    Wow! You guys at SRAZ on right on top of things!! Someone sitting next to me here at the state presidential preference meeting handed me his phone and showed me this. Now I’m passing the info to others!! The reaction to the footballs was raw glee!!!!

    I don’t know a single conservative who gives a rat’s patootie what Robert Graham thinks about anything. He’s too enchanted with himself and the McEstablishment to think about us. He’s a slickster.

  4. Conservative Since Birth says:

    Outstanding!! Bless those warriors against evil. This is the best news I’ve heard all day politically speaking. Down with the evil McCain and McGraham. The party needs to get healthy again. Those two need to be gone.

    It is good to know that you can still score when you send in the first team. Good work passing the McCain shame balls around so his follies are remembered. Fortunately it is the evil men do that lives after them.

      I think you meant to say -unfortunately – not fortunately.

      You’re welcome.

      And, send those footballs into the air; what a great gimmick for the upcoming primary! Love it.

    The footballs made my day. Whoever came up with this idea is nothing short of brilliant! Had I been approached, I would have contributed toward the costs. But I understand the element of surprise needed to carry something of this magnitude off precluding that. My sincere thanks go to the conservative(s) behind this successful effort.

  7. Observer says:

    BRAVO!! Great conservative minds at work!! McCain needs to retire to his 7, 8 or 9 homes. When he was a presidential candidate, he couldn’t remember how many homes he and his heiress wife owned. That’s not a problem for the rest of us.

    • Ellsworth says:

      I agree that McCain needs to retire. I’ll add that the slippery Jeff the Flake needs to follow him out the door in 2017. AZ GOP chairman Robert McGraham should be updating his resume, also. Selling used cars or snake oil would be right up his alley.

    These footballs warm my cockles –whatever they are and wherever they reside. John McCain has done all he can to harm conservatives, purging us from our elected PC posts and replacing us with enabling Vietnamese who then never show up at district meetings.

    He and Jeff Flake are both committed to promoting the illegal invasion of the USA. They are both close to Obama yet portray themselves as conservative Republicans when it suits their agenda. Who can forget McCain’s lying campaign ad where he was all in for building the “danged fence?” Immediately after he was reelected, he and Flake and a horde of RINOs and liberals colluded on the Gang of Eight Amnesty scheme. That involvement came back to haunt Marco Rubio right out of his presidential aspirations.Do you think McCain cared? He uses whoever he can to forward his self serving mission.

    State Treasurer Jeff DeWit, Councilman Sal Diciccio, Gov. Jan Brewer and Sheriff Joe Arpaio are correct! Today’s election was NOT a fair election. It was abundantly obvious to everyone in attendance at the State Convention today that Trump supporters showed up at about the same proportion of how Arizona’s voters voted on March 22nd. Almost twice as many for Trump as there were for Senator Cruz. So how in the world did Cruz win the lion’s share of National Delegates?
    It was very obvious; accountable voting disappeared. In the mornings elections, Maricopa County’s voting machines were on hand. But in the crucial voting for the afternoon, those machines were nowhere to be found! And why is that important? Because the County’s voting machines allow that the voting can be verified if the process is contested. We can always go back, and hand count the paper ballots to verify the vote. But the crucial afternoon voting was done online (smartphones or laptops). Individuals could have a record on their device of how they voted, but there is no way to verify with officials and manually count ALL the ballots to certify the election. Once again, abundantly clear Trump should have walked away with the Delegate count, yet he did not.
    There are very serious questions here. First and foremost: Why wasn’t this very important election conducted on the machines that were already in the building which would have provided a paper trail? The answer is obvious, Robert Graham didn’t want there to be a paper trail!
    We were promised by the AZGOP that there would be opportunity given at the meeting to introduce floor resolutions. The promise was broken, and we were denied the process. We demand to know why. Hundreds of people petitioned for it.
    When the meeting began this morning, an outsider (a parliamentarian) was hired and brought in to conduct the meeting, which is a violation of the rules. When several members called out “point of order” to express their concerns, they were shut down. Another violation. There should have been a microphone in the aisle for members to voice a grievance that the rules were not being followed. The grievance must be heard, and answer given, and then a vote taken after a motion to entertain followed by a second. Instead of members being allowed to object, they were improperly ruled out of order and then a verbal threat was made by Robert Graham that those who objected would be removed from the room.
    The Gestapo Bully tactics of Robert Graham were on display, and membership was denied their rights in being allowed their voice of opposition.

    These serious violations must be reported to the media. Lawsuits must be filed! “WE THE PEOPLE” are tired of the ‘the establishment’ putting a muzzle on our freedoms.

      McCain is no doubt selling the Coyotes equipment to tunnel underneath the fence Trump is going to build.
