The Hillary-endorsing Arizona Republic highlights news that is stale — as in years old. The headline, “Former GOP AG Grant Woods endorses Clinton for president,” is a case in point.
Dan Nowicki, John McCain’s unfailingly fawning assigned reporter, describes Woods as “a moderate-to-liberal Republican,” unaware that a liberal Republican is actually a Democrat. Nowicki has spent so much time groveling at McCain’s two left feet, that he doesn’t have that depth of awareness. There just ain’t such a thang, Dan. McCain is proof positive.
Woods’ endorsement is contrived news. The only reason McCain’s former Chief of Staff rates coverage at all is due to the fact that has learned he can generate attention by remaining a registered Republican while supporting Democrats. In 2002 he toyed with the idea of switching parties, but like a spoiled child seeking attention, he knows such a move would render him flaccid as an attraction. He was prominently displayed on Republicans for Janet, during Napolitano’s 2006 gubernatorial campaign and endorsed Democrats Terry Goddard and Felecia Rotellini for AZ Attorney General in two separate races. Leftist Harry Mitchell was Grant Wood’s pick for Congress.
Grant Woods is a show boater. This is who Woods is. It’s how he thinks. It isn’t news.
