Over a year and three funerals later, it was natural to assume we had heard the last of John McCain.
Last week, the local Hillary-endorsing newspaper contained an insert with a smirking John McCain in full color gracing the cover page. It was headlined, “2nd shot for McCain vision,” describing an “ideas competition,” though sounding more like a threat than a promise. The failing newspaper still worships at the McCain altar, routinely covering him and his family.
Now we’re hearing that McCain sycophant Robert Graham, a former AZ GOP chairman, and the CEO of ROI Global Partners, a lobbying and public relations group promising “World Class Results,” is weighing the idea of running for a state House seat in Legislative District 15. Both House seats will be open due to the current members going head-to-head competing for the single senate seat. No doubt it will be a cakewalk for slickster McCain protégé Graham.
He has now reconfigured himself as a solid Trump supporter though he boycotted Trump’s initial Phoenix campaign rally that had to be moved twice to larger venues to accommodate the enormous crowd. Graham was conveniently “out of town.” John McCain and Jeff Flake made no such excuses. They refused to support Donald Trump even as he was the Republican nominee. Both stated neither they nor their families would vote for Trump — who became president without them.
Was it a coincidence or gratitude that Robert Graham’s namesake son, Rob, was appointed to the U.S. Naval Academy by John McCain?
