Palpable desperation has McCain doing campaign turnaround, Cindy in begging mode
Trying to keep up with that slippery octogenarian John McCain requires more Geritol than most of us are willing to swallow — much like his shop-worn campaign promises that he conveniently forgets the day after the votes are tallied. Not only did he promise to “complete the danged fence” as he strolled the Arizona/Mexico border, but he clearly outlined why. Citing “drugs and human smuggling, home invasions, murder,” he said “of all the illegals in America more than half come through Arizona.” McCain concluded the ad by advocating for bringing “troops — state, county and local law enforcement together.” McCain’s “perfect plan” included “the National Guard and 3.000 new border control agents.” The word “control” is directly from his ad.
Notice McCain used the now verboten word “Illegals,” as he campaigned in 2010, promising to build the dang fence. Funny thing, but that was the last we heard of it. Immediately after election day, he and underling Jeff Flake played co-architects of the infamous Gang of 8, amnesty scheme, as they aligned with the most liberal Democrats in the U.S. Senate.
Now six years later, running for another six-year term, with the fence no longer a twinkle in his cataract filmed eyes, he’s seeking another constituency. Here’s McCain’s latest televised pitch, in Spanish, of course, titled “Por tu familia. Por tu comunidad. Por Arizona.” (“For your family. For your community. For Arizona”) which we have translated for those doltish Americans who only speak English. You’ll notice comments are disabled for this YouTube video. It’s not difficult to imagine why.
Since McCain’s new constituency isn’t coughing up the cash, Cindy has resorted to email begging — in English, no less — on John’s behalf. Calling us “Friend,“ the Anheuser-Busch beer distributorship heiress pitches that his campaign “MUST close out September with the strongest numbers possible. “In fact,” she tells us, “his campaign has set a goal of raising $225,000 by September 30th.” Cindy’s fortune was estimated to be in excess of $100 million nearly a decade ago. Bet’cha she could tap into those funds to help Johnny, and still have a bundle left over.
Cindy is desperate in her attempts to ensure John’s reelection, well aware as she is that his poll numbers are the worst in the country. She knows she will never have another moment of peace…when Arizona voters say “Never McCain!”
