During the 2008 Presidential campaign, McCain fought like a bear. When the North Carolina Republican Party ran ads on his behalf attacking Obama, who was there to call them on it? McCain. When the public demanded more forceful campaigning against Obama, who wiggled his finger at them and said that they must be respectful because Obama would make a great President? McCain.
For eight years prior to his historic Presidential clusterf…um, run, McCain stood in the way of all things conservative. When Bush wanted tax cuts, McCain said they were for the rich. When it came time to pass an unconstitutional campaign reform bill, McCain was there helping Russ Feingold push it across the finish line. And that’s not all.
Who fought for illegals to get more than their fair share? Who continues to be the environmental superhero, Captain Chipmunk, battling for cap and trade even after Climategate and other scandals revealed the science was “flawed?” Who dares stand up to the evils of vitamins and dietary supplements? Who is the only Senator ever to have another Senator, The Official Maverick Lapdog Lindsey Graham (Pomeranian – SC), as a pet without getting him neutered?
That’s right. John McCain.
And now, after battling those who battled Obama in 2008, the battling battler himself is battling J.D. Hayworth. Undaunted by the trivial consideration of that “R” they share after their names, McCain goes forth and hammers him relentlessly. He will not let the Abramoff matter die, because he’s just that combative. Except with Al Franken. Or Ted Kennedy.
So cue up the inspirational music Arizona, for the man you know will always be ready to smack you across the head: John McCain. Accept no substitute chipmunkery.
