Palin/McCain: Politics as usual.

Well, it didn’t take long, did it?  The Washington insiders have already sunk their vampire fangs into the two people we thought were “rogue”, who as it turns out,  are not rogue enough.

On my radio show Thursday night,  I let fly at Sarah Palin for endorsing and campaigning for John McCain in his race to keep his Senate seat for a fifth term.

I can’t tell you how disillusioned and disappointed I am at her decision.

And evidently, my dismay at Palin for campaigning for McAmnesty is shared by quite a few others.

Michelle Malkin, for example, today made it the topic of her syndicated column, “Conservatives: Beware of McCain Regression Syndrome”.

“Conservatives have worked hard over the past year to rebuild after Big Government Republican John McCain’s defeat. But McCain isn’t going gently into that good night.

Red Flag Number One: A reader from Arizona informed me the day after the Bay State Bombshell that he had received a robo-call from Massachusetts GOP Sen.-elect Scott Brown. “He basically wanted me to vote for John McCain in November,” the reader said…

Red Flag Number Two: Also in the wake of the Massachusetts special election, the nation’s most popular conservative political figure, Sarah Palin, announced she would be campaigning for her former running mate in Arizona in March. Palin told Facebook followers that she’s going to “ride the tide with commonsense candidates” and help “heroes and statesmen” like McCain….

As if that isn’t enough, McAmnesty is supporting my governor Light In The Loafers, a true blue Obama-stimulus-supporting RINO if there ever was one.

In Florida, McCain’s Country First Political Action Committee is supporting the Senate bid of fellow illegal alien amnesty supporter and global warming alarmist, GOP Gov. Charlie Crist, whose crucial 2008 primary endorsement rescued McCain from disaster. Grass-roots conservatives support former GOP statehouse leader Marco Rubio – who is hitting Crist hard for lying to voters about his embrace of President Obama’s pork-laden, fraud-ridden stimulus package.

And in California…

…McCain’s PAC supports former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina – a celebrity name with deep pockets of her own, massive media exposure, and a checkered business record. Fiorina served as the economic adviser to McCain, who supported the $700 billion TARP bailout, the $25 billion auto bailout, a $300 billion mortgage bailout, and the first $85 billion AIG bailout. As GOP rival and grass-roots-supported Chuck DeVore’s camp notes, Fiorina has also vacillated publicly over the Obama stimulus. With taxpayer “friends” like this, who needs Democrats?

Michelle could have been listening to my show, because her comments echoed mine, almost word for word:

With all due respect to McCain’s past noble war service, it’s time to head to the pasture. As the Supreme Court ruled on Thursday, he was wrong on the constitutionality of the free-speech-stifling McCain-Feingold campaign finance regulations. He was wrong to side with the junk-science global warming activists in pushing onerous carbon caps on America. He was on the wrong side of every Chicken Little-driven bailout. He was wrong in opposing enhanced CIA interrogation methods that have saved countless American lives and averted jihadi plots. And he was spectacularly wrong in teaming with the open-borders lobby to push a dangerous illegal alien amnesty.

And she’s exactly right when she points to the offense many of us feel at Palin’s palling up with McCain on the stump:

Tea Party activists are rightly outraged by Sarah Palin’s decision to campaign for McCain, whose entrenched incumbency and progressive views are anathema to the movement. At least she has an excuse: She’s caught between a loyalty rock and a partisan hard place. The conservative base has no such obligations – and it is imperative that they get in the game (as they did in Massachusetts) before it’s too late. The movement to restore limited government in Washington has come too far, against all odds, to succumb to McCain Regression Syndrome now.

Pisses me off.  How about you?  I hope JD Hayworth jumps in and gives McCain a run for his money and beats the pants off the little stinker.  Personally, I don’t think Palin’s pull will amount to much. She’s chaining herself to a dead weight. If the good citizens of Arizona are sick of Juan McNasty, Palin’s perky politicking won’t amount to a bowl of moose chili.  McCain: It’s time for you to go home.

J.D.’S Farewell on radio site…..

“It has been a joy to spend weekday afternoons on KFYI. Now, another chapter begins. The call to public service remains, and again it may very well lead to pursuit of public office.”

-J.D. Hayworth

Go JD! Twitter.

As one Freeper puts it:

The Juan McAmnesty f-LYING machine is going up in flames again.

  1. hope you received my e-mail I am truly upset about this whole mess. I was forced by my family to vote for Mc Lame to help defeat Obama. I will be backing J.D.


  2. I’ll give Ms. Palin the benefit of the doubt for being loyal to the man responsible for elevating her to national prominence in the first place. If she keeps to Arizona she will retain my affection. But as noted above, if she then branches out to back Crist over Rubio, or other moderates over bona fide conservatives, I will start to wonder. As for Brown, he’s a Republican in the McCain model anyway, but that’s a darn sight better than the alternative. And remember folks, the great Ronald Reagan campaigned for a lot of RINOs back in the day (God I hate that term) including Alphonse D’Amato.

  3. I can not hold this against Sarah Palin. She has never spoken ill of John McCain, and it is he who presented her to the rest of us. She has not changed to “politics as usual”, she is continuing her support of McCain. I would have been happier if she had remained neutral in this particular race, although support for Hayworth (if he runs) would have been a seismic jolt to the status quo.

  4. Great article, l am a VN vet and voted for Sarah only in the election, l can’t believe she is doing this, if she will do this in a payback for him putting her on the ticket what else will she drop her conservative principles to payback others for, l am sending a check to JD right now and urge others to join also, l feel like a jilted boyfriend Sarah.

  5. What “pisses me off” is people on the right bashing Palin for this decision.

    1. Where is your criticism of Scott Brown for doing the same thing?

    2. Were you upset with her in 2008 for supporting him?

    3. I suppose loyalty means nothing to you.. You obviously do not realize that Sarah would have nothing but enemies if she did what you want her to do. When you have nothing but enemies, they will destroy you.

    4. Expect some on the left to take and use your snarky headline.

    Emotional reactionary puritanism will only serve to hurt this movement. Just ask the left.. They react that way to everything are now outnumbered by conservatives 2-to-1.

  6. Hey clown, why aren’t you bashing Scotty Brown who has said that “John McCain is my model for governing”?

    Did you even know that McCain played a HUGE part in making Brown’s win happen? He is the one who really encouraged him to run and worked behind the scenes to make it happen for him.

    That makes TWO superstar Conservatives that old Maverick has brought the nation. Let’s face it, choosing Sarah Palin as his running mate has changed the world forever.

    Before McCain picked her only a few of us outside of Alaska knew about this magnificent woman.

    What I want to know is who gives YOU, or anyone else the RIGHT to tell Sarah who she should, or should not support? Her entire life has been built on doing what she felt was the best thing, and ya know, looking at her great successes, she’s more right than wrong.

    Sarah has a personal relationship with John. If you read her book you’d know this goes a hell of a lot deeper than just politics. This is about honor and integrity.

    In fact, I’d think a hell of a lot less of her if she decided that, for the sake of politics, she’d take a crap on her friend, John.

    I know crapweasels like you would do that.

    I’m not a fan of McCain’s BTW, but this is just over the top BS.

    Where is all of the bitching about Scott Brown, or for that matter, Dick Cheney who is supporting super RINO Kay Bailey Hutchison over Conservative star Rick Perry in Texas? Rick is the sitting Governor for God’s sake!

    Nope, gotta pile on Sarah Palin and Sarah Palin only. 3


  7. The attacks against Sarah Palin (no matter where they come from, including M. Malkin -to the American people Malkin is a nobody) have a single purpose: to destroy the conservative movement by attacking its central figure and factionalizing it. If the conservatives fall for this well orchestrated attack, then they’re really gullible and as naive as those at the left who voted for BHO. Then, there really isn’t any hope for America.

  8. I agree with Sarah Palin’s decision to campaign for McCain. Despite his weak-kneed, phony moderate, reach-across-the-aisle crap, he did introduce Sarah to the national stage when he picked her. We owe him for that much at least.

    That said, I cannot support McCain’s re-election and will help JD Hayworth any way I can.

    I support Sarah’s decision, just as long as she doesn’t spend too much time campaigning for McCain. Her time would be much better spent campaigning for candidates like Marco Rubio (FL), Chuck DeVore (CA) and Patrick Hughes (IL).

  9. I too am pissed at Sarah Palin for endorsing McCain. She plays both sides. She wants to be considered conservative yet backs the progressive like McCain. Scott Brown has always been what he is a moderate. No surprised there. I hope J.D. Hayworth beats the pants off of McCain. McCain and the NRSC back Fiorina even with the checked past of selling electronics it IRAn under her watch at HP and her volatile, radical gender remarks in Sacramento as exposed by Michelle Malkin. Is Fox News picking up on that or Sean Hannity NO why? She use to be a Fox News Contributor. So cover the back of your own? Fair and Balanced all the while claiming your a Reagan conservative? Sean you aren’t. IF you were you’d be giving air time to the Reagan conservative running in CA, Chuck DeVore. DUH he actually worked for Reagan in foreign affairs. EGADS man don’t you do your homework or just take your ques from Dick Morris.
