You Can’t Spell Nepotism Without “Stop.”

Senator John McCain lost his battle with cancer Saturday. There, I mentioned it. Now, Arizona governor Doug Ducey is looking for McCain’s replacement, and one of the names is disastrously inappropriate.

Arizona Republican Gov. Doug Ducey is tasked with appointing a Republican to replace Sen. John McCain, who served in the Senate for 32 years and passed away.

Ducey resisted discussing possible replacements when the senator was alive, even as he underwent treatment for a fatal cancerous brain tumor caused by glioblastoma, and criticized candidates outwardly lobbying for the position.

Some speculate that McCain’s wife, Cindy, may be a possible replacement, although conservatives from the base are pressuring Ducey, who will go up for reelection himself in November, to appoint someone who is loyal to President Donald Trump to fill the vacant seat.

I remember the Founders fighting a bloody, eight-year war against a country which embraced lines of succession. The United States of America is still – barely – a republic, so John and Cindy’s wishes mean nothing to me. The only opinion which matters is that of the people of Arizona, and if this douche canoe Ducey selects this twat, he’ll be a one-term governor.

Pfft, Cindy McCain. Cindy Morgan would make a better senator.

  1. If the Governor has any (un)common sense, he’ll appoint Sheriff Joe to the spot (on the condition he drops out of the current race to replace jeff flake). That would make the Rinos’ and libs’ collective heads explode.

  2. An article came out today stating that the governor is definitely NOT appointing Cindy McCain to the position. Evidently the gov is up for re-election and found out that if he appointed another McCain, he would lose most of his base in the upcoming election. Looks like the gov is a quick learner! He is seriously looking at someone who is promoting Kavanaugh before the Senate.

  3. TXNick – Or Sarah Palin!

    Ronni – With that clown Romney almost definitely winning a Senate seat, the president needs more supporters, not less. Cindy McCain would be worse than her husband. It’s time the McCain dynasty goes the way of the Clintons.

  4. Arpaio has his own issues. I’d suggest former AZ Governor Jan Brewer. Just watching Cindy’s frozen face crack would be worth the price of soda & popcorn.

  5. Unfortunately, this appoint the wife when a politician dies thing has been somewhat common recently. It is not good for the republic. I heard a suggestion today that he appoint Sarah Palin, but she might have sold her house in AZ.
