I consider myself a Christian first, a conservative second, and a Republican third. John McCain was not my first or even second choice as our candidate in 2008, but as a Republican activist I supported him. It was difficult as the best I could say about him is that he isn’t as bad as the alternative. Any way, a person could just consider that (s)he was voting for Sarah P and that wrinkly old what’s-his-name.
In McCain’s current Senate race, he is running against someone who has been a consistent conservative. All of a sudden John has found his conservative principles. John, where was all this when you were running for President? Don’t you know that we wanted something more than just a Democrat in drag?
While attending the Texas State Republican Convention, I questioned one of McCain’s staffers about his stand on Cap-and-Trade. (He was for it!) The staffer replied that they had to reach out to the “independents”. My thought was: “What’s next? Tapping his foot in the men’s room to appeal to the GLBT minority?”
Here is a video of McCain’s opponent in the Arizona primary speaking about the new Arizona immigration bill. It is on PJTV and requires a subscription, but is free. http://www.pjtv.com/?cmd=video&video-id=3495
