Title: John McCain Going Out The Way He Lived: As An A-Hole!

Let me begin by saying I pray that John McCain has a miraculous recovery and returns to full health. But seems as if the eighty-one-year-old senator is nearing the end. Last weekend he asked his son-in-law Ben Domenech to take care of his daughter Meghan and there has been a string of people such as Joe Biden and Joe Lieberman to say goodbye.

While most people near death tend to make their apologies, or a the very least become “nice,” still the curmudgeon as he nears the end John McCain is exhibiting the same nastiness toward fellow Republicans that made him so unpopular with the GOP the last two decades of his life.

Former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama have been asked to deliver eulogies at McCain’s funeral, people close to both former presidents and a source close to the senator confirmed to CNN. McCain unsuccessfully challenged Bush for the GOP presidential nomination in 2000 and Obama in the 2008 general election. But according to sources close to McCain, he doesn’t want President Trump at his funeral. V.P. Pence can come but not Trump. See what I mean, an a-hole to the very end.

Then there’s the selection of Sarah Palin as his V.P. candidate. Whether one likes Ms. Palin or not, joining John McCain put a target on her back, invited lawsuits and ridicule from almost every liberal alive and in the end ruined her political career.

Despite the fact she sacrificed her career and worked her butt off to get him elected President, McCain stabbed her in the back on his deathbed. He lamented that he shouldn’t have picked her as his V.P.

In his soon to be released book and HBO Special called “The Restless Wave,” (which would have been more appropriately titled “Still an A-hole”)

While he continues to defend Ms. Palin’s performance, Mr. McCain uses the documentary and the book to unburden himself about not selecting Mr. Lieberman, a Democrat-turned-independent, as his running mate.

He recalls that his advisers warned him that picking a vice-presidential candidate who caucused with Democrats and supported abortion rights would divide Republicans and doom his chances.

“It was sound advice that I could reason for myself,” he writes. “But my gut told me to ignore it and I wish I had.”

Even more striking is how Mr. McCain expresses his sorrow in the documentary. He calls the decision not to pick Mr. Lieberman “another mistake that I made”

Nice going John, you screwed up Palin’s career and on your death bed, you bemoan the fact you didn’t pick someone else.

Ignoring the fact that he was FBI’s source for the Trump dossier, John McCain trashes President Trump in his tome professing

“He seems uninterested in the moral character of world leaders and their regimes,” he writes of the president. “The appearance of toughness or a reality show facsimile of toughness seems to matter more than any of our values. Flattery secures his friendship, criticism his enmity.”

And he embarrasses Trump by saying he doesn’t want the President at his funeral. Truth be told he should be apologizing to the President he was the one who first gave the fake dossier to the FBI where it could be used to begin the anti-Trump Russian witch hunt.

Already known (and admitted by McCain) is the fact that the intelligence community first learned of the document after Senator John McCain turned it over to the FBI:

“Late last year, I received sensitive information that has since been made public. Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the Director of the FBI. That has been the extent of my contact with the FBI or any other government agency regarding this issue.”

One would think that the Republican Senator from Arizona and former GOP presidential candidate would extend the courtesy to Trump to let him know about the documents that supposedly were about to be used by the Russians to blackmail the next president. But not McCain.

The Arizona Senator’s critical illness does raise the question for political analysts when there is a special election to fill John McCain’s seat as senior senator from Arizona, will it flip and become a Republican seat?

And now that he will soon meet his maker, McCain is making sure that America will remember him as he lived, as an a-hole.

I'm just sorry I held my nose and voted for him in 2008. i probably would have just stayed home had Palin not been on the ticket.

It seems like every member of his staff is now an aggressive never-Trumper.

A followup on AZ election law from HotGas:

A distasteful but important question is when exactly the vacancy opens since the rules for filling the seat change depending upon the date. I didn’t realize it until recently but apparently Arizona law makes May 31 a key date for special-election purposes:
According to the Secretary of State’s Office’s, if McCain left office by May 31, Ducey would appoint a temporary replacement and Arizona voters would choose their next senator in November. If the office became vacant on June 1 or thereafter, Ducey’s appointee would serve until the seat went onto the ballot in 2020. (Note: there is some dispute about the date. While the Secretary of State’s Office puts the deadline at May 31, elections lawyer Joe Kanefield notes that ARS16-202 requires the ballot to be finalized 120 days before the primary election, which would put the date by which a vacancy must occur at April 30.)
So now it is a tossup between die-already-you-a-hole and die-already-but-wait-until-June-1st.

Nice going John, you screwed up Palin’s career

Screwed up her career?

It could be argued that Senator McCain MADE her career, and in doing so......

made it possible for SS45 to be elected!

That's right!!

First off - thanks to Senator McCain, Sarah became so popular that she starred in her own reality show, she provided "political commentary" on FakeNews, and even had her own news channel!

Yes indeed! Sarah has had quite the run! Especially for someone who barely made it through college....

And lets remember to give thanks to Sarah for energizing the WT Low-Information voters who put DD45 over the top and into the White Trailer!!

'merca! F-yeah!

Donald Trump is the 45th prez, not 0bama. Trump is the 45th prez but only the 44th person to hold the office. (Grover Cleveland was elected to two non-consecutive terms so he gets counted as two presidents, giving rise to the numerical discrepancy.)

So your grasp of basic facts is as weak as ever. Not that that will slow your persistent efforts to advertise your gross ignorance...

No one paid attention to her at all. A few rallies, then Todd got hurt on his "snow machine", she didn't bother to return to Alaska, the value of her endorsement and rally appearances plummeted.

The idea that Sarah Palin somehow swung the 2016 election to Trump with LIVs isn't just laughable, it's downright bizarre.

No one, literally no one, but you has ever suggested that Palin was any kind of kingmaker in the 2016 election. There are dozens, probably hundreds, of people more important in that election than Palin was.

Just in the nature of real discussion, I'll offer a counterpoint: Trump's election wasn't nearly as much about anything he was for, it was a lot of votes against the entire prevailing system. Sort of a blanket veto, an attempt to hurl a wrench into the works and make a major change that was not cut and dried policy from the Beltway, in either party.

Trump was, throughout, the "none of the above" candidate.

If you didn't want 16 other Republicans or Hillary or Bernie to be prez, Trump was your guy.

Myself, I didn't vote for Trump. I live in one of the Reddest states so it's always a matter of overvoting for the GOP here, not so different from how there is so much Dem overvoting in CA.

You wrote quite a rant in multiple posts about Queen Sarah somehow winning the election for Trump with LIVs.

She wasn't even a noticeable sideshow in the Trump carnival.

Just a few things to remind the snowflakes...

1) Nobody gives a shit about Palin, past her decent looks.

2) Only a weak over sensitized, pussified pile of shit, would do ANYTHING but celebrate McTumors death.

3) Trump is making America, AMERICAN, again.

4) I’m glad you’re hating Trump MORE than a klan member hated O’bunghole. I get satisfaction over your pain. lol

5) GFY, you filthy WEAK, snowflake.

You probably don't know what I'm suggesting: you don't have OBJECTIVE EVIDENCE to support any publick concerning issues concerning, "capability or capacity" about anything.

Basically, you are full of shit.

You're a stinking liar - you are a former cop so that comes as no surprise.

Here's the same story from FOX 26:

Nothing about any "list" - you have zero credibility here statist - not that you ever had any to begin with.
