"I hope we're not ... making this human tragedy a political issue," Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., told ABC's"This Week.""We've got plenty of other issues that are political in nature for us to fight about."That is, unfortunately, the senator from my state speaking. One would think this sorry excuse for a senator, this traitor to the constituency that elected him to office, would have the sense to know when to keep his mouth shut. Yes, one would think so, but one would be mistaken as evidenced from his above quote.
It's so nice to know that our senator has the values of the people who elected him. NOT!
Senator McCain, if you are so stupid that you don't know that the only legitimate purpose of legislators is to prevent the kind of murder of the innocent and helpless, such as Terri Schiavo, from taking place then you are too far gone to represent us any longer.
If you fear that the protection of innocent life is becoming a "political issue" then you have no business being in Congress.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, this ignominious senator of Keating 5 infamy, this co-author of the McCain-Feingold Abomination, this Grade F senator of illegal alien issues has got to go. It is past time for him to be recalled out of office. He is not a conservative. His is the wishy-washy flip-flop senator of centrism and thus the media's darling for the moment. But he is not Arizona's darling. He is a disgrace.
Senator McCain, if you can't enthusiastically and unreservedly help in saving the life of Terri Schiavo the least you could do is grace us with your silence. I don't give a flying flip about your political and Machiavellian machinations and aspirations. The sanctity of life outweighs every other consideration. It makes me sick to think that I ever voted for this erstwhile "hero" who has long been bereft of any dignity, integrity or faithfulness to his constituents.
You've been told and NOW YOU KNOW.
UPDATE: To the growing list of things that John McCain has done to spit in the face of his constituents here in Arizona add this:
Arizona Sen. John McCain joined a failed Democratic attempt on Wednesday to bar oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska.You've been told and NOW YOU KNOW even more.
McCain joined six other moderate Republicans and most Democrats in looking to stop proposed ANWR drilling.
