and this from a man who picked sarah palin as his running mate in 2008!

I miss that fella. It's too bad that he gave up everything that I respected to get the nod in the last election cycle.

Hey, that's the guy I was planning on voting for in 2000. Ah, the youthful indiscretions of naivete.

maybe he was stopping off in south carolina to pick up his black baby (new window)

He then went on to decry the cancellation of Firefly.

Too late now, you old retard.

Breaking: John McCain has openly condemned the annexation of the Sudetenland, and vows that we will beat the Russians to the moon.

Because he's a maverick!

And he's just released a press statement extending his condolences to Goose's wife and kids.

Hear, hear


He was every bit as conservative and loony back then, you just didn't know about it yet. The thing about McCain is that occasionally, he disagrees with mainstream republicans and will publicly speak his mind like he did here. David Foster Wallace's essay on his campaign from Consider the Lobster is really good.
 
2012-01-12 01:10:56 PM  
glad to see once he's got no sway or influence he'll actually give an honest opinion...

nah, it's probably dementia setting in...he's reliving the late 1990s. next he'll be telling us how much he enjoy tom hank's latest movie, the green mile.
 
2012-01-12 01:13:16 PM  
This isn't surprising, given how hard he and Russ Feingold worked on campaign finance reform. It has to suck being a member of a body that's SUPPOSED to have equal checks-and-balances protection with the other two branches of government, only to see all your hard work torn up by smug, activist assholes like Thomas, Alito and Roberts.

Look, I'm the furthest thing from Conservative imaginable. But that's all the more reason to point out those rare times when someone on the Right DOES something right.
 
2012-01-12 01:17:30 PM  
I wonder if he was one of the ones biatching about Obama calling out SCOTUS for that.

Possibly. I seem to recall Gingrich was fine with it until Romney's SuperPACs started coming after him.

Gingrich is against anything that doesn't benefit him directly.

"I predict to you that there will be huge scandals associated with this huge flood of money."

How so, John? Thanks to the idiotic SCOTUS decision, it's all completely legal.

That is some watery and bitter jism, that is.
 
2012-01-12 03:20:41 PM  
Thanks, Senator Asshole, too little too late. You pissed on any honor you had left when you ran for president in 2008.
 
2012-01-12 03:21:14 PM  
Wow. McCain is butthurt that the Supreme Court found his pet law unconstitutional. Shocking.

Which included giving in to the machine and accepting Palin.

He'd would have been the better choice in 2000 but it was too late for him in '08.

That he went on to endorse Bush afterward is what keeps me from ever having any respect for him.
 
2012-01-12 03:23:29 PM  
John McCain lost the right to pontificate about bad decisions other people have made after he decided Spiro T. Agnew in a skirt was a viable choice for a running mate.
 
2012-01-12 03:23:32 PM  
I think I (or someone else) have to point this out in every John McCain thread: The dude was never honorable. He was a corrupt senator from the get-go (does no one remember the Keating Five?). He was a terrible pilot. The only reason he didn't flunk out of the military is because of his family connections. He is an adulterer and a misogynist. Disagreeing with his base on one or two social issues does not make him a maverick. He is a pox upon Congress, and that's saying something.
 
2012-01-12 03:23:45 PM  
I am not at all surprised that a Washington insider would support the criminalization the creation and distribution of political documentaries. What I'm less clear on is why people are cheering him for this decision. Why do you want political speech criminalized? Keep in mind that Citizens United had nothing to do with financial contributions to candidates, it was strictly about political speech (in this case, a documentary).

Somehow I imagined it as being black and foul like the first release a month after exposure to salt-peter. A hateful thing.Good call n the bitter though.
 
2012-01-12 03:25:20 PM  
Actually the worst was McCain-Fiengold Campaign Finance bill, A.K.A, the incumbent protection act. Sorry, John, that was the worst.

DarnoKonrad: Hey, that's the guy I was planning on voting for in 2000. Ah, the youthful indiscretions of naivete.


Heh. Same here, I remember those days. So when did you figure out that "campaign finance reform" was an irrelevant distraction from actual problems, and unconstitutional besides?

/Hey, I was young and stupid once myself... then I got over it.

2000 John McCain steps out of time machine to call Citizens United "one of the worst decisions I have ever seen." He then motioned to his assistant to let them know he needed his diaper changed again.

Just imagine how much better shape we'd be in if Reagan had acknowledged the problem before he was re-elected.

I will always believe that the party forced her upon him.

/I will forgive McCain for 2008 if he can use his political powers to keep that show on the air.
 
2012-01-12 03:30:30 PM  
He forgot to use the code words in that statement: "it was the fault of activist judges."

For me, that was 2002. I was a McCain supporter in 2000, and a sometime Republican supporter for 25 years before that. Then W came along and I'll never vote Republican again.Thanks Georgie for opening my eyes, and I seriously mean that.

Sorry. Pet peeve.

Well, right now, because the words coming out of his mouth are right on.
I'd love to see him devote the rest of his life to bitter, bloody revenge.
It couldn't happen to a nicer party.
 
2012-01-12 03:33:39 PM  
But yet, McCain supports SOPA....which in my estimation makes most of his opinions not worth listening to.
 
2012-01-12 03:34:43 PM  
Nothing to worry about here,

When Newt is appointed Master of the Universe he will call these judges out , find them guilty of treason and feed them to Callista
