John McCain, Political Captive

I’ll keep this one short. For more substance, check out Linda Lyon’s excellent post, #BeTheMaverick, below.

John McCain, by towing the party line and endorsing Trump, and now failing to retract his endorsement in the wake of Trump’s most recent tirade, has validated Trump’s despicable comments about him.

Politically, McCain has quite clearly been “captured.” It’s pathetic, especially for a guy who fancies himself a maverick. Trump’s sentiment about capture, while horrific in the context of military capture, is spot-on in the context of political capture: We prefer politicians who haven’t been captured.

  1. I think McCain is waiting till after the primary to un-endorse T.rump.

  2. John McCain’s pickle makes me think of that old adage: When you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas.

  3. John McCain said in 2/22/15: ‘I’m ashamed of my country’
    “What Goes Around” Mr. McCain and there are a lot of us here in Arizona that are ashamed of you.
    “He’s not a war hero,” Trump said of McCain at a summit of 3,000 socially conservative activists. He continued, sarcastically, “He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured.”
    After what you survived and to let this sorry excuse for a human walk all over every one in this country that doesn’t ride his band wagon. What has politics done to you and your honor?

    “We prefer politicians who haven’t been captured.”

    OMG. Thank you for that.

    McCain, who gave us the hard drinking fist fighting Caribou Barbie clan, continues to entertain.
