I am saddened by the outburst from a true American military hero, Senator John McCain (RINO-AZ).
Apparently still bitter from his primary challenge by a tea party supported candidate, the Arizona senator and former GOP presidential nominee singled out both Sharron Angle and Christine O’Donnell, who ran last year for Senate in Nevada and Delaware respectively.
Reading from a Wall Street Journal editorial that mocked tea party supporters as “hobbits” and criticized tea party-backed lawmakers for holding out on a debt-ceiling increase, McCain said: “This is the kind of crack political thinking that turned Sharron Angle and Christine O’Donnell into GOP Senate nominees.”
After courting the support of tea party activists in his bid for the Presidency and the selection of Sarah Palin as his running mate, he now maligns conservatives with obvious glee on the Senate floor.
Even more disappointing the Senator, in an interview afterward on Fox News, denied attacking the tea party. McCain said. “So, I wasn’t attacking the tea partiers or anybody.”
Maybe that is “the kind of crack political thinking” that made him a loser to Obama.
But it did earn the Senator the RINO of the Week recognition.
