Our good old Senator Strom Thurmond had to be wheeled in in his last term and dozed off during hearings. His staffers did all the work

McCain was once respectable. Today, he is emblematic of the problems.

And the sad part is that he doesn't realize it.

That's what happens when you get older and more stubborn in your ways.

I didn't care for him in 2008. He became part of the failed Bush era and I held my nose and voted for Barry. He's even older now, more establishment, in an anti-establishment mood. It's time to be a gentleman and step aside.

But this establishment codger is still around and trying to score another 6 years in the Senate. I hope the people in AZ have the good sense to send him home this time.

The "crazies" are rising up. I hope he remembers what he called us.

Both he and Lindsey Graham are a bilious pox on America. If we don't get rid of him and others like him we will be fighting wars of conquest into the infinite future.

I used to have an uncle that would tell us --- " shut up, pay your taxes and do what the government says " None of us liked him and we all thought he was crazy.

An overwhelming majority of the population is clearly tired of the blind faith and adherence to such draconian thinking. The problem is - both McCain and Lindsey Graham are in the two states where there's still a lot of blind faith and flag-waving dummies like my uncle. But Arizona is being infiltrated by a ton of new age Californians - so there's hope there in the context of removing John McCain.

South Carolina is a different story. Instead of watching the illegal aliens from Mexico and Central America flood in there for all the low wage service industry work surrounding the retirement population , we need to figure out a way to convince all the medical marijuana folks and new agers from California to relocate into SC. Lindsey Graham would be run out of town so fast he wouldn't know what hit him.

Imagine if our forefathers took that advice before the revolution.

He's got a ways to go until he catches up with Strom Thurmond on that account, but yes, McCain's time has passed. He was relevant in the 1980s and possibly the early 90s. Not so now.

Absolutely! In addition McCain should say...."folks, Donald was on target with his insinuation that I'm a weak man because I was a captured POW. Donald is right, POWs should never be respected or acknowledged for their contribution to our country because they're losers!" Watch his numbers go through the roof.
