Prepping for Meghan? Would Gov. Ducey actually do it?

On the heels of the disclosure that Arizona Sen. John McCain is battling brain cancer, comes a barrage of Meghan McCain image polishing in the local newspaper.

Thursday’s front page features a massive photo of the nearly 81-year-old senator with a report on the “aggressive, tough to treat” malignancy. It also includes this tweet from daughter Meghan, in which she says of her father, “….like any daughter, I cannot and do not want to be in a world without him.”

Page 7 carries a full page report, headlined,: “Meghan McCain: He is the toughest person I know.”  But the editorial is what was the attention grabber, the hard copy version is headlined, “Meghan McCain emerges with poise and eloquence.”  It would be difficult for Arizonans to equate this description  with the coarse, tattooed, motor mouth who complained that her father’s presidential campaign ruined her sex life, calling his failed effort a “libido killer” and even throwing in a slam to her much classier mother. The editorial, referring to John McCain as “one of the most influential leaders of our time,” was a rehash of his legendary heroism, disputed (video) by those who were imprisoned with him in Vietnam and members of congress who questioned his permanently shutting down access to POW and MIA records.

The online version of the editorial is even more blatant, “Our View: John McCain’s legacy is in good hands.” Sounding more appropriate for an obituary, this creepy praise came as John McCain is still among us.

Despite being bewildering it’s clear the Arizona Republic is pushing for Gov. Doug Ducey to appoint the marginal Ms. McCain to fill the senate seat occupied by her father. Ironically, it wouldn’t be much of a push, since the governor and senator have a longstanding connection dating to the  early 1980s when Ducey moved to Arizona to attend Arizona State University, and began working at Hensley& Co., the Anheuser-Busch distributor owned by Cindy McCain.

None of his 6 other children (2008) rate this syrupy coverage or even a mention.

Meghan McCain’s Republican credentials have always been suspect. A social liberal, she became a Republican as a Father’s Day surprise, in a display of “commitment” to her Dad. It’s worth noting that at the time, he was the GOP nominee for the U.S. Presidency. Like her father, Meghan refused to vote for Republican nominee, now President Donald Trump.

Even plagued with serious health problems, John McCain continued to lash out at President Trump, who, joined by First Lady Melania, sent him warm wishes after hearing of the serious diagnosis.

    An appointment of Megan McCain to the Senate would surely put a DEMONCRAT in the Az. Govs. office.

  2. Maggie says:

    It’s a good thing I read this before breakfast!

  3. VINOAZ says:

    Just what the country needs, another liberal senator. I predictied McCain would not complete this term and that awful daughter would be appointed to the senate. However I changed my mind. If Ducey is smart and wants a ongoing political career, he needs to appoint himself to the senate. At that point he will no longer need McCain.

  4. Jakesez says:

    This has got to be a joke. No one who is serious can conceive that Meghan McCain could possibly be a Senator for our State. If Ducey were to do this he would be tarred and feathered.

    Excuse me, I need to go outside and throw more wood under the tar pot.

  5. State Delegate says:

    If Gov. Ducey would appoint Meghan McCain to anything, he could kiss his reelection goodbye. This entire idea is preposterous. I hope he remembers John McCain was overwhelming censured by the elected Republican state delegates at the Statutory Meeting a few years ago. The McCain name is toxic to those of us who are proud conservatives.

    He and his toadies then worked double time to systematically purge conservatives from their posts by recruiting registered Republicans not committed to the GOP and overfilling precinct committeeman slots on the ballot. Then they followed that deception up with postcards mailed to Republican households purposely misidentifying the ringers as “conservatives.” The actual conservatives, so despised by McCain, were kicked under McCain’s forked tongue express.

    As far as Meghan is concerned, generational deceit appears to run through the McCain DNA.

  6. Conservative Since Birth says:

    She is an unserious, spoiled, outspoken, difficult to like woman who wouldn’t be accepted by the majority of GOP voters. And just another McCain I wouldn’t vote for. This isn’t a club for the haves to oversee the have-nots. We need sincere conservative representation.

  7. Matt DeGennaro says:

    I read the blather in the newspaper yesterday and laughed out loud. They routinely insult their readers, but this was so outrageous, it was comical.

  8. Saguaro Sam says:

    She’s just like her old man.
    However, those qualities very unbecoming in a female.

    Have to say, I have previously predicted this scenario.

    No mention of her legal residence status.
    She appears on FOX out of a NYC studio and has had her L.A. residence splashed on the cover of an architecture magazine.
    Funny how she got rave reviews for an apartment sparsely furnished in black and white with floor to ceiling windows.
    Looked like a Bev Hills plastic surgeon’s waiting room.

    Meanwhile, Lindsey Graham telling his constituents that they’d better not vote for him if they don’t like DREAMERS.

    Just as McCain took up Ted Kennedy’s amnesty mantle, looks like little Lindsey is trying to make his daddy proud.

    • Casper says:

      Yes, I well remember your prediction. It made me cringe at the time. Now I feel physically ill.

      As to ‘Lil Lindsey, I don’t think his relationship with old Johnny Mac is parental. It has always appeared far more intimate than that. I wonder how Cindy has put up with their ongoing travel? It’s a good cover, albeit one that we the taxpayers are funding. Seems they could just get a room in DC.

    • Capt. Marvel says:

      Meghan McCain is trashy and ignorant to boot. Her boob job is growing in proportion to her weight gain. I’ve seen her a few times on clips from Fox’ Outnumbered, and she’s the only one on the set studying notes for her next spew. She has done nothing to deserve such a spot, let along a co-hosting title. Daddy obviously put pressure on someone.

  9. Patrick says:

    Please no and I also think it would ruin his reelection chances.

  10. Arizona Conservative Guy says:

    Gov. Ducey put crooked Tony Bouie in charge of the Arizona Lottery. Enough said.

  11. Joseph Bickley, Sr. says:

    Reelection chances will likely have nothing to do with Ducey’s decision to replace McCain—pols know quite well that voters have short memories; and only 20% of them actually cast ballots.
    Sadly, Gov. Ducey will ignore conservative Kelli Ward in place of a trophy RINO who will continue the job of dismantling the Arizona Republican Party.
