John McCain a poetry buff?

Decades ago, Welsh poet Dylan Thomas wrote a poem dedicated to his frail and aged father that began with these words:

Do not go gentle into that good night.

Old age should burn and rave at close of day;

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Those familiar with Arizona’s now seriously ailing senior senator, known for his salty tongue, colluding with liberals and crassness, would find it difficult to view him as a devotee of poetry. But John McCain’s recent actions show him to be raging against the ravages of his final illness and the encroaching loss of “the light,” obviously taking Dylan Thomas’ words to his own dying father to heart.

This past week alone, in an excerpt from his soon-to-be released memoir, actually written by his longtime confidant and biographer Mark Salter, McCain needlessly insulted Sarah Palin — his 2008 VP selectee — saying that he should have followed his better instincts and put Democrat Joe Lieberman on his ticket as his vice presidential running mate. It’s clear he missed seeing the profusion of bumper stickers on Arizona roadways that were sliced horizontally across the middle, removing the name McCain and leaving Palin. When chauffeurs do the driving bumper stickers aren’t in your sight line.

Devoid of class even in his waning days, he has issued an exclusionary guest list for his funeral, intentionally omitting Donald Trump, the President of the United States, who incurred McCain’s wrath for winning the nation‘s top office, a feat that eluded McCain. Fellow Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) calling the move “ridiculous,” later apologizing for his remark.

Though he repeatedly led failed attempts partnering with Democrats to grant amnesty — including eventual citizenship — to those illegally invading the U.S., McCain condemns Republicans for adhering to the Rule of Law and expecting our generous legal immigration policy to be followed.

Widely reported at the time, McCain finally acknowledges delivering a discredited, inflammatory “dossier” to then-FBI Director James Comey containing what turned out to be false allegations against President Trump. “I discharged that obligation, and I would do it again. Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell,” McCain states in his biography.

McCain’s latest gambit, reported on Wednesday, is his urging the U.S. Senate to reject Gina Haspel’s nomination to become CIA director, claiming she was unable to satisfactorily address concerns regarding her role in the use of enhanced interrogation techniques during the Bush administration. Her assurances that the practices that served to provide valuable information are no longer used, is of no consequence to McCain‘s operatives who issued a defamatory statement in his behalf.

Rather than seeking peace at the end of his life, the still angry McCain brazenly continues to “rage, rage against the dying of the light,” even when there is nothing substantive to incur his wrath.

    Get ready for a FAKE Funeral.
    This is a Very Big Deal.
    Five of the Top ISIS Terrorists just captured, got sucked in by using a phony app on their cell phones.
    Phony phones will put them in a cell.

    Just last week it was announced that Trump has stopped the funding that we had been giving the “White Helmets” in Syria.
    This was after it was confirmed, through multiple investigations, that the White Helmets were actually staging the fake chemical attacks in Syria.
    Our Shame was a Huge part of getting US taxpayer funding for those guys over the course of many years.

    Take a look at the excerpt from his new book, about his boozing with Hillary. Of course, his choice of liquor would be vodka.

    Here’s two other stories, recently out:

    Remember when McCain said that Bradley (Chelsea) Manning should have been charged with espionage? He should know.

    Is McCain trying to escape death or a military tribunal?
    Lots of funding for military tribunals and redecorating GITMO in Trump’s Executive Orders. Millions and tens of millions of dollars.

    Must we slave workers supporting gov’t. really have to contribute any of our earnings toward a funeral at the National Cathedral and transportation to DC for whatever number choose to travel to pay homage? Why not a quid pro quo – before death unseal the records re: investigations of POWs left behind in Vietnam and then recognition from those who wish to provide. Definitely not the hundreds of hard-working precinct committeemen whom he purged from office because they dared to censure the RINO senator.

  3. Kimball says:

    John McCain is a wretched man. I haven’t voted for him since his first senate race, decades ago. It wasn’t long before he revealed himself to be a farce, phony, snake….take your pick or choose them all, since each definition is deserved. There are numerous others that also work.

  4. Former State Delegate says:

    Being elderly and desperately ill has not magically turned this arrogant deceiver into an admirable guy. As dedicated as he and his minions have been to recasting his image as a hero, and a maverick, to cover his traitorous partnering with the most liberal Democrats on a wide range of issues, Arizonans who pay attention know the truth. That’s why elected State Committeemen voted to censure him at a statewide meeting. McCain retaliated by using a wealthy Obama donor in San Francisco, aided by some Arizona McCain operatives to remove many of us from our elected, though unpaid, posts,doing the work to elect Republican from the top to the bottom of the ballot. None of that matters to McCain. He is solely self-focused, expecting respect while giving none to anyone, not even his wife who he called vile profanities in front of staff and reporters on a plane. He’s a bum who was born into a family of Admirals and after dumping his first wife married a beer dynasty heiress.

  5. Saguaro Sam says:

    Word now that he has asked BHO to deliver the eulogy.

    Will it be closed casket? Or an urn?

    (someone should definitely collect some DNA)

    What a great cover.

    The Renegade and the Maverick, together again.

    • Maggie says:

      Why not have Obama give the eulogy? McCain did everything he could to help elect him, tho he supposedly was his political adversary. Remember when he even put Obama’s middle name Hussein off limits?

      Barack Hussein Obama proudly used it during both of his inaugural swearing in ceremonies.

  6. Kent says:

    The only thing McCain knows about class is that he graduated at the bottom of his at the U.S. Naval Academy in 1958.

  7. Doc says:

    “Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell,” McCain states in his biography.”

    McCain is a traitor!!! He will never be able to cover his past, no matter hard he tries. He has so much blood on his hands and now he is haunted by it. Those who squeel the loudest have the most to lose!!
