With all due respect to McCain’s past noble war service, it’s time to head to the pasture. As the Supreme Court ruled on Thursday, he was wrong on the constitutionality of the free-speech-stifling McCain-Feingold campaign finance regulations. He was wrong to side with the junk-science global warming activists in pushing onerous carbon caps on America. He was on the wrong side of every Chicken Little-driven bailout. He was wrong in opposing enhanced CIA interrogation methods that have saved countless American lives and averted jihadi plots. And he was spectacularly wrong in teaming with the open-borders lobby to push a dangerous illegal alien amnesty.
No sooner than Sarah Palin announced she would campaign for the re-election of John McCain, former Arizona congressman and conservative Phoenix-area radio show host, J.D. Hayworth, has announced his own primary challenge to McCain.
Talk about crappy timing. Drop the person of John McCain from the equation and this is precisely the sort of primary fight where Palin, darling of the Tea Party movement, would be campaigning on behalf of the challenger.
We totally understand how Palin may have accepted McCain’s offer out of a sense of loyalty but, honestly, this doesn’t quite look or feel right.
