Sarah Palin Barred From McCain’s Funeral

Senator John McCain has requested his former running mate, Sarah Palin, not be invited to his funeral services.

I have been trying to not speak ill of the dead, but this story is making that exercise exceedingly difficult.

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, who was Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)’s running mate in the 2008 presidential election, has been excluded from his funeral.

Breitbart News has independently confirmed an earlier report in People magazine, which reported that Palin was not sent an invitation, and was told through intermediaries to stay away from the ceremony.

Sarah Palin was the only reason I voted for McCain in 2008. She carried him during that election, because most voters were voting for Palin and her infectious constitutional conservatism instead of McCain’s bittersweet brand of liberalism. McCain thanked his running mate by recently suggesting he lost the election because of her; a notion which is 1. utterly classless, and 2. completely false.

McCain fundraiser Carla Eudy confirmed Palin had not been invited — possibly, People speculated, at the behest of the McCain family. The news comes on the tenth anniversary of the date in 2008 when Palin was announced as McCain’s pick for Vice President.

I suppose when you’re angry and bitter, timing is everything.

Palin now joins President Donald Trump on the list of those barred from the funeral.

Then Sarah Palin will be in good company, since she and the president are arguably two of the most viciously – and unfairly – attacked politicians in American history. President Trump has gone after his attackers – sometimes gracefully, sometimes not – but Sarah Palin has usually taken the high road.

Even after being excluded from the funeral, she declined to criticize him.

Of course she did, because Sarah Palin has always handled herself with grace and class; virtues I believe are severely lacking in the decedent and his family.

Senator McCain Makes Funeral Plans

Arizona Senator John McCain is making funeral plans in the wake of his poor brain cancer prognosis. In one last attempt at bitterness, McCain does not want President Trump to attend the funeral services.

The Times on Saturday reported on the “memories and regrets” the senator shared with friends who have come to visit his Arizona ranch. The article included details about funeral plans for the ailing senator, who is suffering from an aggressive form of brain cancer.

“His intimates have informed the White House that their current plan for his funeral is for Vice President Mike Pence to attend the service to be held in Washington’s National Cathedral but not President Trump, with whom Mr. McCain has had a rocky relationship,” according to the Times.

As Proof noted the other day, even if Trump was invited, he would probably send Pence – which would also be a petty move, in my opinion. If you’re going out, doesn’t it behoove you to do so with class? Barring the sitting president from your funeral does nothing to help your legacy. In fact, it does the opposite. It makes McCain look like a an angry, bitter, petty child.

McCain To Derail Border Wall Funding

Borderline traitorous Republican Senator John McCain and verified moonbat Democrat Chris Coons are pairing up to sabotage the president’s funding of a border wall.

Congress is expected this week to pass yet another short-term spending bill to avoid a government shutdown, prompting a bipartisan pair of senators to introduce a narrow bill on immigration aimed at ending the impasse that has hindered a two-year budget deal.

The government’s current funding expires at 12:01 a.m. Friday. Immigration has become entangled in the spending negotiations since President Donald Trump last year ended an Obama-era program that protects young people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children, known as Dreamers.

Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain (R., Ariz.) and Sen. Chris Coons (D., Del.) plan to unveil a proposal that offers a path to citizenship for Dreamers and orders a comprehensive study to determine what border-security measures are needed. But the bill stops well short of almost all of the president’s demands—including immediate funding for the wall along the southern border—and is likely to meet a chilly reception from conservative Republicans.

Mark Levin makes a big deal of this because it is a big deal. There is a difference between DACA people and “Dreamers.” DACA is a few hundred thousand, while the “Dreamers” number in the millions. Dickholes like McCain fool people into thinking they are all the same, but tell them, “No, it’s only a few hundred thousand.” It’s a Ponzi scheme, and far too many people fall for it.

The bottom line is this border wall is never getting funded, and the blame will lie (as always) with Republicans.

The Russia House

Traitorous, senile bastard John McCain has been served a subpoena from the House Intelligence Committee.

The summons was sent regarding the debunked Russian dossier, and McCain’s involvement in it.

McCain, recovering in Arizona from treatments for cancer, has long refused to detail his actions regarding the dossier. For his part, Kramer was interviewed by the House Intelligence Committee on Dec. 19. The new subpoena stems from statements Kramer made in that interview.

In the session, Kramer told House investigators that he knew the identities of the Russian sources for the allegations in Steele’s dossier. But when investigators pressed Kramer to reveal those names, he declined to do so.

Now, he is under subpoena. The subpoena, issued Wednesday afternoon, directs Kramer to appear again before House investigators on Jan. 11. (H/TAOSHQ)

I fully expect McCain to gleefully ignore the subpoena. I also expect the committee will allow McCain to get away with it because of McCain’s “illness.”

New Health Issue, Same Old Politician

It seems every time I want to throw some support John McCain’s way, he inevitably screws the pooch before my fingers hit the keyboard.

Arizona Sen. John McCain blasted a report on the administration’s new Syria posture just hours after revealing he had a cancerous brain tumor. McCain’s statement faulted the administration for reportedly ending a covert program begun during the Obama administration to provide arms to Syrian rebels battling President Bashar al-Assad.

‘If these reports are true, the administration is playing right into the hands of Vladimir Putin,’ the Armed Services Committee chairman said in a statement.

The statement served as a reminder that so long as he is in the Senate, McCain will continue to warn against the administration’s proposed move toward Moscow.

As someone who has had two – albeit minor – skin cancer surgeries, I sincerely wish McCain fully recovers. Regarding the senator’s “OMG TRUMP-RUSSIA!” statement, I’ll hold my tongue.

John McCain Is A Big Bag Of Douche

Disclaimer: John McCain is an American hero who served his country and blah, blah, blah… Now that that’s out of the way, can anyone tell me why John McCain is 1. still a Republican, and 2. even remotely relevant anymore? This assclown should have been sent to the glue factory two decades ago.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said American leadership was stronger under President Trump’s predecessor, President Barack Obama, according to a Guardian report.

Asked if the country stood on sturdier ground under Obama’s leadership, McCain said “yes,” according to the report.

“As far as American leadership is concerned, yes,” said McCain, who also vocally criticized many of the Obama administration’s foreign policy decisions.

Oh I agree wholeheartedly. I especially enjoyed America’s leadership while Islamic terrorists murdered our Libyan ambassador and three other Americans. Not to mention our groundbreaking initiative of giving weapons to Mexican drug lords, and freeing Guantanamo prisoners.

If McCain appreciates Barack Obama’s strong leadership, I suggest he relocate to Canada, France, or now, Britain. There are plenty of “leaders” driving those nations… right into the gutter.

McCain Struck By The Back Of His Rand

john-mccain-is-a-jackass

While I believe he is a very good senator, I differ with Rand Paul on many issues; particularly his protectionist nature. That said, I wholeheartedly agree with his takedown of aging fossil John McCain yesterday. It’s high time someone put that jackass in his place.

Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) ripped fellow Republican Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) Sunday after McCain criticized President Trump’s escalating war of words with the media.

“Everything that he says about the president is colored by his own personal dispute he’s got running with President Trump, and it should be taken with a grain of salt, because John McCain’s the guy who’s advocated for war everywhere,” Paul said.

John McCain is also the guy who stabs every true conservative in the back for the sake of media acceptance. I love you, Arizona, but really, can you do no better than this toad?

Paul said there has no effort by the Trump administration to suppress the media, noting that no legislation has been offered to curb press freedoms. Paul argued that McCain has a history of being wrong major foreign policy questions.

“I would say John McCain’s been wrong on just about everything over the last four decades. He advocated for the Iraq War, which I think destabilized the Middle East.”

Interesting how the media loved McCain in the 2008 primaries, then decided he was a douche during the general election. They hated him for eight years, but have now embraced him; conveniently after he started attacking Trump. McCain and Miss Lindsey need to retire to Statler and Waldorf’s balcony.
