John McCain May Be On His Deathbed But He Doesn't Deserve Any Praise
"John McCain (R-Ariz.) said he regrets choosing former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) to be his running mate during the 2008 presidential campaign. The New York Times reported on Saturday that McCain, while still defending Palin`s performance, said in his upcoming book `The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and other Appreciations` that he wishes he had instead selected former Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.)"
John McCain has terminal brain cancer, and it`s only a matter of months, if not weeks, before he dies.
I have no intentions of mourning his death or writing a flattering obituary/editorial.
McCain did much more harm than good during his long political career, and he doesn`t deserve praise on his passing.
The senior senator from Arizona dedicated most of his time in the Senate advocating for war, he delivered countless speeches in the Senate calling for war against almost every Muslim country. If you look up the word "warmonger" in the dictionary you will see McCain`s surly mug.
McCain was the epitome of the corrupt politician, need I remind anyone of the Keating scandal:
The Keating Five were five United States Senators accused of corruption in 1989, igniting a major political scandal as part of the larger Savings and Loan crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s. The five senators - Alan Cranston, Dennis DeConcini, John Glenn, John McCain, and Donald W. Riegle, Jr.- were accused of improperly intervening in 1987 on behalf of Charles H. Keating, Jr., Chairman of the Lincoln Savings and Loan Association, which was the target of a regulatory investigation by the Federal Home Loan Bank Board (FHLBB).
But McCain`s greatest mistake was choosing Sarah Palin to be his running mate during the 2008 presidential campaign. That wasn`t a mavericky thing to do, it was a cynical and insane action.
Palin was totally unqualified to be one heartbeat away from being president. She`s an ignorant fool, from a dysfunctional family who thought that she was a foreign policy expert because she could see Russia from her porch. Palin paved the way for Donald Trump, it could be argued that he wouldn`t be president if it weren`t for Palin.
McCain is railing against Trump from his deathbed, but he should take a good look at himself in the mirror, he is responsible for the abomination being president.
It`s too late for McCain to take back all the evil he has unleashed, the least he can do is shut up and die quietly.
