Recommended Posts

According to Republican officials in Arizona, Sen. John “the Maverick” McCain has sided with “liberal Democrats” too many times over the years, and therefore, the Maricopa County Republican Party has voted to censure him:


The Maricopa County Republican Party has voted overwhelmingly to censure Senator John McCain (R-AZ).

Members of the group feel the senator has failed to stand behind the Republican Party's principles and crossed the aisle and voted with Democrats too many times.

Many GOP members are using the term "RINO" to describe McCain, which stands for "Republican in Name Only."

The vote was 1,150 for the censure and 351 against.Scissors-32x32.png

Hasn’t McCain Worn Out His Welcome?

Steven Hayward



There was a time when I liked and admired John McCain. True, I still had hair on my head, and the calendar year began with a “1” rather than a “2.” And I’m glad McCain gave us Sarah Palin, even though I’m afraid she wasn’t quite ready for prime time, and may have actually ruined her long term political prospects.


Still, to borrow Dick Cheney’s phrase about the Clintonistas in 2000, it’s time for him to go.




Even worse: McCain is apparently thinking about running for re-election to the Senate. He just held a fundraiser, and appeared on the Tonight Show to say he was “looking very seriously” at a run for a sixth term in 2016. If ever there was an incumbent crying out for a Tea Party challenge. . .
