Can't watch the vid. Are they mad because he's bringing the Derp or because he's not bringing enough Derp?

The latter.  They're unhappy he won't accept that undocumented workers should be ground up and used as a foodstuff.

Whar giant electrified fence McCain? WHARR?

I almost felt sorry for John McCain for a second there but then I remembered that he's John McCain.

So "devoured by that which he helped to shape"

Meh. Whatever.

The thing is McCain promised these people the fence and the rest of the derp. He just thought it was ok to lie to them.

Look at poor old John McCain, doing his best over a period of years to pander while at the same time trying to preserve the party's viability. He tries to explain that the undocumented workers aren't on welfare but they won't listen. And why would they? They've been spoonfed this drivel for decades by the right wing entertainment complex and there is no talking them out of it now, now matter how ridiculous it is to believe that non-citizen migrant workers could possibly go through all the hoops required to get on welfare .Link

it's really hard to have any sympathy for Walnuts at this point. Once you pander for votes, you don't get to go back and reclaim the "honest broker" mantle.

I find it sadly ironic that McCain was shouted down for saying we should act compassionate, like a Judeo-Christian nation. Just...amusing, but in such a warped, sad way.

And seeing legions of angered salt-hairs,
Good McCain did feel his heart's pace quicken -
For these were his people, his crew, his base,
His friends, his voters, those of his own race.
But when the derp they unleashed, fair John scowl'd
And potatoes quickly outmatched his jowls.

I tried to feel sorry for him.  It's not working.

I always thought about moving to Arizona someday, until I see stuff like this and then I start to have second thoughts.

A friend of mine just asked me whether I feel sorry for John McCain getting derped on. This is my attitude for any Republican who deliberately trafficked with Teatards over the past couple years:

I wonder which news station is on the television 20 hours/day at crotchety old geezer's house? He seemed to be pretty well infromed, so it must be a good one.

Eh, don't kick yourself too hard. All the local newspaper websites have idiotic comments on them. That's why most of them are going to Facebook so they won't be anonymous anymore.

Even the newspapers out in the West and out in the East have right-wing trolls commenting on them.

Bali or Costa Rica for us.

We don't have enough money to survive without jobs in the USA, but in Bali/Costa Rica we could live large.

They didn't create them. They just gathered them together and gave them a place at the table, as opposed to being on the fringes...

Don't discount the frenzy the Right-wing has been whipping into these people.  Yes, they were easily suggestible in the first place, but the 24/7 right wing noise machine has amped these folks up to 11.

When i saw this story and especially in relation to the TPM thread, i could only shake my head at these right wingers who have brought this on themselves. For far too long they have fostered an environment of shouting out half truths to divert attention from the real issue and their own inadequate abilities to govern. Instead, it has created a new class of disruptive participant who like to wrap themselves in a blanked of the US flag and the constitution but in reality are just selfish hate mongers determined to keep their little clubhouse door locked and everyone off their lawn.

McCain loves to embrace these people and their tactics when it suits him. He should not be surprised when it gets shoved right back up his arse. Conservatives, particularly TPers, have shown time and time again they are more than willing to sacrifice their own and follow the loudest blowhard who whips them into a frenzy with political histrionics.
