The Media Loves John McCain Again!

Postby corplinx » Sun May 06, 2018 1:10 am

You guys know how this circle jerk goes.

Whenever McCain parrots the media narrative, he's the independent hero.

Whenever he challenges them, he's the sinister washed up has-been. Probably faked his medals.

This time it's because he's expressing concerns for the country and apparently told Joe "i am basically retarded and nobody notices" Biden to stay in politics.

Here's how that conversation went:
McCain: "Black unemployment is at a historic low. Manufacturing is up. Peace in the Koreas."
Biden: "I know right? Somebody has to put a stop to this."

They'll be calling him "The Lion of the Senate" any time now.

It was good for Hubert Humphrey as well.

Occasionally saying something that bucks the party line doesn't impress me so much with him anymore. He was perfectly willing to encourage the wingnut side when it suited him to--I have little interest in his crocodile tears now. If he had any real guts he wouldn't have let them take over his presidential campaign in '08. He created the Trump phenomenon as much as anyone.

Reminds me of jurors claiming they made the wrong call, pushed into it by others. It's time to shut up now, you didn't act when it counted.

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Trump is horrible for McCain, because it shows what a real maverick is and the results you get.

Trump is an orange tempermental jerk cartoon but the country is finally out of three decades of slump (there was the web1.0 boom under clinton but it was a web boom and it ended overnight and the gains were all lost).

Finally? We've spent most of the last several years in solid recovery. I'm not going to call the guy who showed up at the end a miracle worker.

I read somewhere or other that McCain has disinvited Trump from his funeral.

What kind of jerk writes the guest list for his own funeral? :lmao:

Of course it could be fake news. :BigGrin3:

I never understood calling McCain a maverick. Reagan was inarguable a maverick. McCain is like a mixture of the worst parts of the Republicans and Democrats. He was like mating Billy Joel with Christie Brinkley and getting someone who, like their mother that can't sing and looks like

I submit that I am not. Perhaps if they had also shopped out her nose hairs I might change my almost to maybe. But I would still demand other grooming promises.

Hey, dude, stop being a McCain apologist. It's no way to get hot chicks.

Who will replace him?

Arizona Gov Ducey will decide. The Washington Post sez maybe his wife but I don't think so. Ducey may not be a Trumper but he's not far from it.

They are hoping the Gov will appoint a Republican in McCain's place to restore some balance to the Senate.

So McCain goes public saying he was sorry he picked Palin as VP choice. My thoughts:
1) Well no shit you worthless fuck.
2) At least she wasn't pregnant when you kicked her in the stomach.
Jeez dude.

Meghan McCain: 'These People Are Nothing Burgers'
Senator's daughter wonders why Kelly Sadler, who insulted her dad, still has a job


Because, Meghan, whoever said it is right. "It doesn't matter, he's dying anyway."

And that is true.

It is so true that AC will not let me nominate him.

Bernie Sanders didn't mince words Sunday when discussing the White House reaction to a staffer who made fun of John McCain's brain cancer, reports CNN. "It is one thing in the White House for somebody to say something crude and stupid and disrespectful about an American hero," he said on CNN's State of the Union. "It is another thing for them not to apologize. It is beyond my comprehension. And I just don't know what goes on in that White House mentality for there not being an apology for that terrible remark." More around the Sunday dial:
