    AZ GOP: "McCain mentally unstable and out of control"

    AZ GOP: "...McCain is mentally unstable and out of control..."

    This November, for the first time, McCain's name will appear on a national ballot. While Arizona residents know a lot about McCain's political history, the nation, as a whole, knows relatively little. His national image is largely a fantasy created by his public relations machine. It is time now that the nation learns the facts about McCain. What better place to begin than in his home state with his fellow Republicans?

    Many Arizona Republicans are upset with McCain because they feel that he is not sufficiently conservative. This is particularly true about McCain's statements and positions regarding illegal immigration and illegal immigrants.

    Bob Haney, the Republican state committee chairman in Arizona's 11th District, has described the situation to Max Blumenthal this way:

    "People would be calling in to [state committee] headquarters every week, absolutely enraged, threatening to leave the party because of some comments McCain made," Haney told me. "The guy has no core, his only principle is winning the presidency. He likes to call his campaign the 'straight talk express.' Well, down here we call it the 'forked tongue express.'"

    In response to complaints by Republicans in his district, Haney introduced a resolution to censure Mccain for "dereliction of his duties and responsibilities as a representative of the citizens of Arizona." The resolution easily passed in the 11th District and was then brought before the county GOP. What was McCain's response to this?

    Not content to let the purely symbolic resolution stand, McCain recruited a slate of candidates to oust Haney and his allies in last November's state committee elections. McCain supporters formed a political action committee, Grassroots Arizona PAC, to bankroll this effort. Forty percent of Grassroots Arizona's funds were provided by two Democratic donors from San Francisco apparently enraptured with McCain and his "maverick" image, Gregory and Lisa Wendt, which added fuel to the flames of Haney's revolt. McCain's slate was formidable, including Fife Symington, a former Arizona governor coaxed out of retirement to come to the rescue of his old friend. So worried was McCain about being rebuked by his own party that he threw his own hat into the race, announcing that he would run for state committeeman. When the votes were counted, McCain and his entire slate were resoundingly defeated.


    What do Arizona Republicans think of how McCain handled this situation? According to
    Max Blumenthal:

    McCain's botched revenge has solidified his reputation in Arizona's Republican circles as a divisive, untrustworthy and even dangerous figure. Haney hopes the general public meets this side of McCain before his penchant for angry reprisals is invested with the powers of the presidency. "This just shows that McCain is mentally unstable and out of control and vindictive," Haney told me. "If he is determined to go through that much trouble to attack a district committee chairman, what does that say about his ability to handle real political problems?"

    Points well taken, Mr. Haney! Now let's see if we can make the entire electorate of this nation aware of how Senator McCain has operated in his home state of Arizona!

    The guy graduated the back of his class, crashed 4 planes, got shot down, and was captured. I call that a FAIL. Yet somehow his PR dept has turned him into a war hero! LOL, that's some good marketing right there.

    We would be better off with Forest Gump running our country. Unfortunately we won't be so lucky and will probably end up with Barack O'Marx.

    Let's see. Haney tries to censure McCain. McCain defeats the censure. Haney accuses McCain of revenge and says that he's unstable. Sounds like Haney is an unstable idiot with an axe to grind.

    BTW, nice source. The Daily Kos. Absolute POS.

    Actually McCain lost. The censure passed overwhelmingly. The vengeful McStain then put all his effort in to try to unseat Haney. He lost again.

    Although Arizona is somewhat off the national radar, Haney's resolution posed a threat to the McCain makeover. Apparently alarmed, the senator dispatched his chief of staff to the Maricopa County Republicans' meeting to warn against the resolution. At McCain's behest, Arizona's other GOP senator, Jon Kyl, sent his own chief of staff as well. But Haney's resolution passed by a nearly unanimous vote.
    When the votes were counted, McCain and his entire slate were resoundingly defeated. Despite endorsements from virtually every Republican member of Arizona's Congressional delegation, Symington, who had never lost a race in his life, was crushed--as was McCain. Adding insult to injury, in January another key McCain ally, Republican political consultant Lisa James, was defeated for state GOP committee chair by Randy Pullen, a prominent McCain critic and anti-immigrant activist who headed the campaign for Prop 200.
    It would appear that the people who would know McStain best seem to hate the shitbag.

    Absolute POS.
    Yes, McPain is an "Absolute POS."

    There are two good candidates going for the job and only one will get it. Positions on the issues are clear in many cases and debate should be vigorous and focused. It won't be, it'll just be ugly.

    Speaking of issues, nasty article in the Journal Sentinel on Lake Michigan today. Environment needs some attention.

    As much as I wish that were the case, sadly neither of the good candidates are likely to get the job. Instead we'll get McLame or Obongo.

    The internet is great for hiding identities... in real life are you 12 years old?

    No way McStain gets my vote, I don't care if Whitney Houston was running and smoking that whack crack. I would vote her first..... Chavez? Hell, I would vote for AhamadenJIHAD or however you spell his name, first. I would sooner piss on that traitor then vote for his stupid ass.
