Giffords Making Miraculous Recovery, Could Attend Husband’s Shuttle Launch

By: Friday March 11, 2011 12:02 pm

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, just two months from the tragic shooting in Tuscon where she suffered a bullet wound to the head, is doing so well in rehabilitation in Houston, Texas, that she may attend the shuttle launch of her husband, Mark Kelly, on April 19. Giffords’ doctors, who held a news conference Friday, said that [...]

Kyl Announces Retirement, Becoming Fifth Senator This Cycle

By: Thursday February 10, 2011 9:06 am

It’s not just Hosni Mubarak; multiple reports have confirmed that Jon Kyl, the number 2 in the GOP leadership in the Senate, will not seek re-election. He will announce this at a news conference in Phoenix, one originally scheduled for 10 am, now postponed until noon. No word on whether Kyl and Mubarak will simply [...]

John McCain Fighting the Last War

By: Monday August 2, 2010 8:26 am

I had the same reaction as San Stein when seeing this John McCain ad about border security: he’s consumed with fighting the man who denied him his birthright, the Presidency of the United States. You can argue that McCain is running harder against Obama now than he did in 2008, and certainly harder than he’s [...]

Lindsey Graham: I Have No Political Principles

By: Thursday July 1, 2010 2:12 pm

Lindsey Graham’s comments in this New York Times puff piece about the Tea Party movement eventually dying out are getting some notice. But the part where he admits that John McCain is acting conservative to get elected in a tough Arizona primary should probably get more attention, at least in the Grand Canyon State. In [...]

“I never considered myself a blogger”

By: Monday April 5, 2010 11:18 am

This post aside, and the other thousands I’ve done over the years, I’ve never considered myself someone who publishes short articles and analysis online. In that respect, I’m just like JohnMcCain. Many of the GOP’s most faithful, the kind who vote in primaries despite 115-degree heat, tired long ago of McCain the Maverick, the man [...]

John McCain Brings The Crazy To Save His Job

By: Tuesday March 30, 2010 1:07 pm

The sharp turn into crazy base land by John McCain, which even his traditional media base has not been able to ignore, has elicited plenty of howlers. For instance, in a mid-March town hall meeting in Nashua, NH (what the hell is he doing in New Hampshire? He doesn’t think he’s running for President again?), [...]

McCain’s Lie On TARP So Pathetic, Even J.D. Hayworth Can Recognize It

By: Wednesday February 24, 2010 9:51 am

John McCain just put out a silver platter gift to his primary opponent in Arizona, one that could very easily lead to the end of his political career. This is hilarious: In response to criticism from opponents seeking to defeat him in the Aug. 24 Republican primary, the four-term senator says he was misled by [...]

AZ-Sen: Will St. John McCain Get A Serious Primary Challenge?

By: Thursday December 31, 2009 9:55 am

Former Rep. J.D. Hayworth has been hinting for months that he will challenge John McCain in a Senate primary in Arizona next year. He gave the strongest hint yet on his radio show yesterday: On his KFYI radio show Monday, Hayworth told his listeners that he went to Washington, D.C., this month and “we may [...]
