Using “the royal we,” the 80-year-old running for his sixth six-year term, implores, “We have just under four days before our campaign’s most important fundraising deadline is here and all eyes are watching me and our campaign to see how strong we are.”
Skipping right past his Primary opponent, Dr. Kelli Ward, a physician and conservative former state senator, McCain cunningly raises the specter of “liberal Democrat Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick.“
If McCain’s so worried about Ann Kirkpatrick, why are the airwaves filled with deceptive ads fantastically accusing Kelli Ward of voting to help ISIS, a fictional feat that would be impossible for anyone to achieve in a state legislature. Is it any wonder the slippery McCain was censured by elected GOP state delegates? In retaliation, he used a San Francisco Obama donor to purge the party activists from the AZ GOP ranks. His underhanded tactics both in Arizona and in D.C. have conspired to make McCain the least popular U.S. senator.
His lobbyist friends won’t let him down. It’s a symbiotic relationship more commonly known as, “I’ll wash your back and you wash mine.” — which has mutually benefited them and him for decades..
But if McCain’s actually worried about money, all he has to do is roll over and tap Cindy Hensley McCain on the shoulder. It’s a perk of being married to a beer heiress, running one of the nation’s largest Anheuser-Busch distributors.
Begging is so déclassé.
