Discussion: McCain On Palin Endorsing Trump: 'I Respect Her View'

Discussion for article #244927

And the fact that you respect her views is one of the reasons I don’t respect yours.


I’ll give John McCain some credit here. By endorsing someone who said McCain was not a war hero (because he was captured), Palin is crapping on the head of the man who launched her national political career. Given McCain’s temper, he is showing remarkable restraint here.



McCain said that he has no plans to endorse a candidate in the Republican presidential primary, according to The Hill.

“I’m not considering anyone,” he said. “I’ve got my own race to run.”

Shorter McCain: I can’t afford to piss off any more GOP primary voters.


His lapse of judgment in elevating Caribou Barbie to national level aside, John McCain is not stupid. He knows perfectly well that he has nothing to gain and everything to lose by behaving any differently than he is now. He is going to go to his grave maintaining that he really, really didn’t make a mistake in naming her as a running partner.


Hold on there, sonny. John McCain earned the respect of every right-thinking American when he named this fine stateswoman as his running mate.


McCain still won’t say anything that even hints that he made a huge mistake choosing Palin as his running mate. I guess that admission won’t occur until his deathbed.


John, if you ever want to be taken seriously again it is looooong past time for you to own up to the fact that Sarah was the greatest mistake of your life. Well that and learning to fly.


st johnnie will never admit how he was played the fool by having her foisted upon his campaign and he foisted her upon the country. he had no idea who she was – other than she was a female, from alaska, and hunted animals from a helicopter… the perfect foil for that black guy the democrats were running…
and even funnier, is that her ascendance gave life and organization to the teatards who now control the party. upshot – st johnnie is in some part responsible for the destruction of the establishment gop.


Whom the gods would destroy, they first get Sarah Palin to endorse (or vice versa).


Translation: She will do for his campaign what she did for mine.


McCain will never admit his mistake. He is a spent force. Should retire. Now that Shameless Palin has joined up with Bump will Bristol be far behind? And the announcement of a third pregnancy may well be a feature of their campaign.

Actually, I think she’s got him by the short hairs. And, his pride is getting in the way of admitting he created a monster.


Shorter McCain: I was stupid when I picked her for VP, I’m still stupid now.


McCain always proudly said “Country first.” Under his breath he added “…after my political ambitions and ass.” He doesn’t possess the decency or good judgment to counter Palin’s wretched excesses.


Sarah Palin is GrandPa McCain’s chronic illness. He will never be rid of ‘it’ and so he has to try and deal with it.



I will never forgive John McCain for inflicting this half-assed brainless bimbo on us.


This is the whole problem with the republican party. They started down the road of the southern strategy in the 60’s and it’s taken them to the extreme right where Palin and Trump are their most popular candidates and they are embarrassed to admit they were wrong and put the train back on the track that’s at least somewhat near center. You know there were a lot of parties in the US that came and went so it will be interesting to see if they are able to revive the republican party or if it will also die and if so see what comes along to replace it.

What can he say? Try asking H.W. Bush if he’s enjoying watching his political legacy strangle his son…


Actually, he’s showing remarkable dementia here!
