Why McCain still stinks

We usually allow the dead to rest in peace because they no longer can defend themselves.

But by using his funeral to get one last lick in on his opponents -- Republicans -- John McCain relinquished any claim to such decency.

It is not that I care how he treated President Donald John Trump; he gives as good as he gets.

McCain's banning of Sarah Palin from his funeral was -- in her words -- a gut punch.

No gentleman hits a lady.

And a commissioned officer never treats a loyal subordinate like that either.

Governor Palin told Piers Morgan, "I was kinda surprised to be publicly disinvited to the funeral. I think that was an unnecessary step. They didn’t have to embarrass me and embarrass others. That was all weird. I hope that doesn’t happen to other people. It’s kind of a gut punch."

That was not the last time McCain reached from the grave to attack her.

The Fox News report also said, "Last May, McCain published a book titled 'The Restless Wave,' in which he wrote that he regretted choosing Palin as his running mate instead of his close friend, former U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut."

I have no quarrel with the horse he rode in on, so I will spare readers that portion of the epithet.

    The selfish shenanigans of McCain and his ilk is another reason DJT defeated the bipartisan fusion party.

  3. He was really a Democrat all along. And the Establishment went right along. Another Arlen Specter.

    1. Super last two sentences.

      McCain was the Arlen Specter (or sphincter) of the West.

  4. Polls showed that Don is right. Without a doubt, Palin RAISED McCain's poll numbers and made him a contender.

    She went on to get more Republicans elected than Karl Rove.

    There's a rumor she will run for the Senate against Murkowski. I hope she does.

    1. Palin was just like trump-an outsider.
      with ideas. McCqueeg miscalculated that that "hillbilly" woman wouldn't be a threat. He was wrong. Kind of like skipping ejection seat class...

  5. McCain, too, was no gentleman. He could be nasty.
    But, he was getting supported by Reps, who were against the PC-Klan. Yet McCain was nasty against Reps, seldom nasty against the Dems.

    Even tho he usually voted as a conservative, his need to be quoted and willingness to be nasty against Reps remains low.

  6. McShame gave us Obamacare. He was a backstabbing narcicist. Planning three funerals for himself to milk every last minute of attention.

  7. Trump would have made McCain's funeral about him. He does anyway. Palin, and her Alaskan grifter family, would have done the same on a much smaller scale.

    1. The LeftMedia would have made McCain's funeral about Trump and Palin for ratings, just as they played up how Trump and Palin were excluded from an invitation.
      As for a "grifter family," who can compare to the Clintons?

    2. Or the Os, or any other Democrat?

      If they didn't screw their way to the top, they grifted and many do both.

    3. McCain made his own funeral about President Trump and Sarah Palin. Without this disinvite notice, the President and Mrs. Palin would have come, said something vaguely complimentary, and gone home. They would not have provided the country with more information about Mr. McCain's lack of good character--he did that himself.

  8. I voted for Palin and hoped if she won, the president would get pneumonia at the inauguration and die within the first 30 days in office. Without Palin, I would have sat out.

    1. Same here. After a decade or more of seeing McCain trash the GOP on Sunday talk shows I had no interest in bothering to vote for him. Palin got me to the polls.

  10. Mr. McCain was truly a son of a gun, in the literally true historically Naval sense of the word.

  11. Few people remember how McCain got "flipped" from being a loyal Reagan republican. It was the Keating 5 scandal, in which he was the only republican involved. He needed absolution, and he found it from the press by becoming a turncoat. And don't forget his denunciation of the swift-boat veterans for truth (as if he could know they weren't telling the truth), almost getting Kerry elected.

    1. Lead singer and driver of keating five Winnebago. Took the money. Pulled strings trying to shield criminal. Got caught. His sacrifice to media was McCain Feingold campaign reform. This bill gave presstitutes control of political narrative and barred all others. This is law overturned by citizens United. And in 2008 McCain started off at like 1.1%. And the 10 or 12 better candidates like Giuliani got slurred with media mud while McCain was propped up by media as hero. This lasted until primary, after which media mud
      at mccain (and Palin) resumed.
      McCain was owned by media, used, and discarded when needed.

  12. There were only two reasons anyone voted for McCain: Sarah Palin and Obama. Nobody actually voted FOR McCain.

  13. McCain's primary job as a candidate was to get Palin on his ticket and destroy her. Sarah Palin had given Big Oil and Big Politics a bloody nose as Alaska's governor. When McCain chose her I believed he had turned over a new leaf and was serious about getting himself elected. Then McCain started attacking Palin instead of Obama. That's when I knew the fix was in.

  14. Sarah Palin was a voice crying out in the (Alaska) wilderness. She made straight the path for Donald J. Trump when he ran in 2016.

  15. My biggest regret in the voting booth was voting for McCain in 2008 when Bob Barr/Wayne Root were on the ballot. I thought the Republicans could win my home state. They did not.

    How dare anyone get in the way of her Jeb. And she would have had there not been a Trump.

  19. I almost sat that election out. Palin motivated me to vote for the Republican ticket.

    I am fully convinced that either by design or happenstance, the Republicans refused to win; they preferred the minor role of rule and just wanted to be at the federal government feed trough. Republicans, generally, are just Democrats without the fire in the belly.

    Both parties support the same globalist goals and Republicans are then cowed into subservience on other issues.

    Trump, a not long ago registered New York Democrat celebrated by media and Democrats alike, has shown what fighting back can do.

    The Republican party is ony using Trump to advance certain things, but refuse to stand with him on issues that were once historic Republican values and party planks.

    After Trump, if Republicans go back to form, I will never vote for them again.

    I voted for W twice as governor and President, McCain, Romney, and now Trump.

    Trump shames them all in how he fights for principle and party.

  21. It's amazing that some people are still obsessed with attacking John McCain - even though he is dead and buried and, therefore, he obviously can't defend himself.

    Apparently, John McCain, dead as he is, still lives (rent-free) in some people's heads, so they will never let him rest in peace.

    1. What makes you imagine he wanted to rest in peace?

      The clan is vindictive.

      The daughter makes thast clear expressing her view every time she speaks. And she speaks a lot.

      The widow is the same whenever she gets a chance.

      So, no, no one would choose to remember this particular deceased as they do were it not for his decades of flip flopping, back stabbing, rino uniparty hog hijinks of the ambition clan he headed.

      The uniparty hog cabal will use his memory to exploit as they typically do.

      So fucking what.

      He did what he did.

      And will be remembered, by those who choose to remember, for all the good, all the bad and all the ugly, with the ugly being the most exploited by the uniparty propaganda machines, in whatever ways they deem can get them what they yearn.

      His grave being pissed on is likely the least relevant thing to concern anyone.

    2. Well, that woud be true for most folks, Lucky, but apparently McCain put in specific, partisan, political, NeverTrump instructions for his funeral. Moreover, his family can't let the dead be dead, so ...

  22. From the Keating 5 to the vote against Obamacare to the distribution of the "dossier" McCain was not an honorable man. He lied to his constituents and was a loser in the Presidential election as his slogan was "I reach across the aisle" a democrat in disguise.

  23. Wow. 30 comments thus far. Must have touched a nerve. What I don't understand is how he survived the aftermath of that missile he touched off on the carrier. It was a stupid move, most likely because he was a stupid man with a get out of jail free daddy and grand daddy as admirals.

      I did not like McCain, but what you are peddling is lies.

      Training films from the CCTV video, of which I saw in boot camp and in ship board fire fighting school, refute your statements.

  24. The first time I noticed McCain was when he was swept up in the Keating 5 scandal (savings&loans). I figured the only reason they let him off was both parties figured he was an idiot newbie.

    Then he went on to do a bunch of increasingly RINO-ish things.

    When he got the nomination in 2008, I figured I was stuck voting for him because of what I already knew of Obama's Muzzie and Commie connections. When McCain selected Palin for his veep, I was delighted because I like and respect her. At least I wasn't scowling when I voted.

    McCain went on to do worse and worse things after losing the election, going into overdrive when Trump was elected. Finally, after pledging to eliminate Obamacare for years, his was the deciding vote to FAIL to eliminate Obamacare.

    McCain was a useless waste of space while he was here and the world is a better place now that he is gone.
