So now McCain endorses. Deal sealed. (Gawd, they must think we’re dumb clucks not to see right through this. Or worse, maybe they don’t give a rat’s patoot…)
John McCain will endorse his ’08 rival Mitt Romney tomorrow, a top Republican source confirmed to POLITICO.
This next paragraph will blow your mind in its mendacity! What theater!
The Arizona senator fought a bitter nomination battle with Romney four years ago, though Romney has worked to mend the relationship since then. The endorsement was first reported by BuzzFeed.
The GOP base DEFINITELY does not like McCain. At all. I can’t see where this endorsement is going to help Romney. So come to think of it, let McLame endorse the Mittmeister. Rock on, you establishment stiffs!
McCain’s endorsement will help Romney pivot away from Iowa, toward New Hampshire, and turn the page on the caucuses in any case. But McCain also symbolizes much of what the GOP base doesn’t want in its 2012 nominee, so it’ll be interesting to see just how closely Romney hugs the Arizona senator.
Cry me a river for the guy who snagged a whopping 744 votes in Iowa…
The endorsement is also a blow to Jon Huntsman, who has attempted to campaign as a McCain-style maverick and staked his whole bid on the state that made McCain a national figure.
What. A. Joke.
