McCain Wins His Primary

| Comments (1)

Oh, well. We can’t win them all.

Though my hope sprang (is that a word?) eternally yesterday, John McCain, armed with an endorsement from former running mate Sarah Palin (never could stomach that one), won yesterday’s republican primary in Arizona.

John can greet today refreshed, knowing that after forcing himself to run a campaign — and spending records of millions on that campaign — where he had to position himself as a right-leaning republican, he can go back to being the moderate democrat that is his true self. The causes of amnesty, politically correct rhetoric, campaign spending reform (hah!), anti-terror waterboarding, gun control….they have their Johnny back, prepared to cross the aisle whenever their leftwing proponents call his name.

In the meantime, perhaps John’s primary opponent J.D. Hayworth can take a page from Florida Obama-hugger Charlie Crist’s playbook and file as an independent. And maybe this time, her debt repaid, Sarah will endorse him. Again, I can always hope.

    Your comments regarding Sarah Palan betray an elitist side to you that surprises me. Who else except Sarah has the BALLS to take it to union thugs and governmental todies. Maybe it’s time to reconsider and appreciate talent when it presents itself.
