John McCain Will Repeal Health Care Reform, Through Magic, If You Send Him Money

by Ken Layne

History's Greatest Monster.
A pathetic, amoral piece of garbage who is utterly terrified of losing his fat-cat Senate privileges, that’s John McCain: “I believe we must repeal this bill immediately. I am currently working in every way possible on your behalf to accomplish this. However, I am facing a tough reelection campaign. If I am not reelected this year, I cannot fight for our shared values in the Senate. That’s why your immediate donation of any amount is so critical. Your urgent support will enable me to continue our fight against this terrible bill.”

Nuts to you, Failure RINO. Please go to the Rest Home now, and let hilarious teabagger-birther JD Hayworth win the GOP nomination for Arizona’s “idiot senator” seat. [Arizona Republic]

Urgent support? That’s code for Depends-meets-Spanx, right?

coolcatdaddy March 23, 2010 at 10:24 am

“Your urgent support will enable me to continue our fight against this terrible bill.”

I see. And your immediate exit from the Senate will help Congress continue to actually get something done for a change.

Oh, and … ‘”idiot senator” seat’ in Arizona is actually a bench. Jon Kyle needs a place to rest his demented ass. Too.

Oblios Cap March 23, 2010 at 10:27 am

I just got an urgent message from Toomey asking the same thing. I vote in Florida. Keep wasting postage sending those appeals for donations, GOP. Unfortunately, they got smart enough to stop sending postage paid envelopes. I used to like filling out their questionaires with my insults and mailing them back.

JMP March 23, 2010 at 10:29 am

All the Republicans who have started claiming they’re going to repeal the bill “immediately” had better explain how they’re going to be able to do so, when it won’t be possible for them to actually have both houses of Congress and the White House until 2013.

Is there anyone who knows if the Dems have anyone credible up for the seat? I personally would love to see the teabaggers take down their own far-right former presidential candidate, but not if that means we’d be likely to get a man whose insanity rivals that of the Oklahoma Senators to join the,.

What’s with that row of stars zooming from McCain’s crotch to Obama’s ass? Is this some kind of Senate ritual I don’t want to know about? Old guy slips starry beam up ass of young guy?

Joshua Norton March 23, 2010 at 10:42 am

McCain is morphing into something out of a Stephen King novel right before our very eyes. He’s got kind of a “Salem’s Lot” meets “Cujo” thing going for him there.

Mr Blifil March 23, 2010 at 10:43 am

Has any politician in history ever sent out a fundraising appeal that went “if I am not reelected this year…?” Why stop there? “If my dick falls off from crotch rot, I can’t continue the important work of goat fucking that the people of this fair state saw fit to grant me.” “If I suffer a massive coronary, or debilitating stroke, I will have to appear on fewer Sunday morning shows pretending I matter, and my wife will continue boning the gardening staff…heh, I said staff…”

The possibilities are endless.

NPR’s take this morning on the whole Republican mouthfrothing “OMG REPEAL HRC NOW” was hilariously succinct: little or no chance of that happening, and stupid move besides. In addition to, as well.

SayItWithWookies March 23, 2010 at 10:52 am

Welcome to the way down, Senator. I know you thought this path only went up — but then you start thinking with your dick, run for president on death panels and “he pals around with terrorists,” and the next thing you know you’re fighting for your political survival with some glorified used-car salesman who thinks vaccines are an evil plot to make us stupid, while your former supporters look on uncaring. It’s the political equivalent of waking up in a gutter with a fifth of Bowman’s Virginia Vodka in the plastic bottle under your arm.

Aflac Shrugged March 23, 2010 at 10:52 am

McCain’s reelection comes down to a choice between him and former Representative J.D. Hayworth. In terms of policy outlook, it’s like the difference between a law establishing a hunting season for gays and the homeless, and a law establishing a hunting season for gays and the homeless that only allows hunters to use crossbows.

Capricatony March 23, 2010 at 10:54 am

Poor old man, he still thinks he had a chance at winning the presidency. He should just let it go and be thankful we never had to find out what it would mean for a vice president to “go rogue.”

[re=537735]queeraselvis v 2.0[/re]: Except for Bachmann, they’re not stupid enough to try to repeal the parts that help people (basically the whole bill) so they’re left with trying to repeal the scary tax parts that pay for it. Kinda like Dubya’s 8 years of “don’t pay as you go.” And that worked out really well for the country.

Lucidamente March 23, 2010 at 10:57 am

J.D. Hayworth–he’ll make John Kyl seem like the smart senator from Arizona.

fwiw, today is the anniversary of Patrick Henry’s “Give me liberty or give me death” speech–if you listen carefully you can hear him spinning in his grave as teabaggers everywhere recite it.

Naked Bunny with a Whip March 23, 2010 at 10:57 am

Of course, if McCain does lose his seat to Hayworth in November, the new guy will have zero seniority and no real pull. He’d be under Al Franken in the pecking order.

[re=537735]queeraselvis v 2.0[/re]: No chance of much, for starters, if the Republicans win every single Senate election this year, they’ll get 59 seats; they would need 67 to override a veto.

[re=537734]Mr Blifil[/re]: Well of course Senator / Congressman X needs to be reelected; it’s not like there’s either dozens or hundreds of other representatives from the same party, fighting for the same issues.

I have received your email requesting a campaign donation. As much as I’d like to help, this is not a good time for me, financially speaking. I won’t belabor you with the details, but suffice to say, right now food an shelter are top priority.

Is there an online petition I could sign, perhaps? Maybe that would help.

Here’s what the Minnesota AG (a democrat) replied:

“The legislation in question still has to be signed by the President and reconciliation has yet to be passed by the Senate. The individual mandate does not go into effect until 2014. Our Office has not yet read and analyzed the 2,400 page bill that passed the House yesterday. The Attorney General’s Office operates in the legal arena and we are not going to make any legal comments until we have had the opportunity to review the 2,400 page bill.”

I believe that is legalese for “go fuck yourself, Tim.”

[re=537916]Hooray For Anything[/re]: I know all us flyover states look the same, but Sebelius was governor of Kansas, not Missouri (where it’s up to a member of the Carnahan clan to beat Blount). While Kathleen probably would have had a good shot at a pick up in Kansas, with Daschle getting punked out of HHS she was a real need pick up – and she’s been pretty awesome at beating the insurance companies up, since she knows how to speak their language.

I’d actually lay dollars to donuts (yummy, yummy donuts) that Napolitano takes Kyl out the next time he’s up for re-election, especially if we get an immigration amnesty that makes the AZ electorate more brown than white. I don’t want to say any deals were made, because if they were Johnny didn’t honor them, but I think Obama may have tried to let the little asshole off lightly by tapping Janet for DHS.

Troubledog March 23, 2010 at 1:29 pm

The teabaggers hate Walnuts anyway but the cool thing is the messaging – sense of urgency, I will avenge you, it’s not too late if you send your money now.

But how long before the rank and file teabaggers figure out that their so-called leaders are just brand identity people, attention whores, and huckster profiteer working the crowd? Such an apt metaphor for raising money by preying on the tent preacher vulnerable demographic.

Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachman certainly mean these people no good, and for chrissakes we may see the rise of Newt Motherfucking Gingrich? These people are so mad, they’d follow a looney like Breitbart who doesn’t even pretend that he likes them.

To see the white people frothing at the mouths on those videos, I imagine what the civilized folk of Constantinople must have thought when the unwashed hordes of religion-infused white people started showing up in the neighborhood. It’s spectacular.

All this talk of repealing the bill, or enacting legislation at the state level to block it. It’s a remarkable piece of fund raising. They can’t block this any more than we could have blocked Ashcroft’s Patriot Act. But to say they can is a good way to get money out of terrified simple white people. Especially if you send them a t-shirt.

When Mr and Mrs Teabagger figure out that their so-called heroes are only working the crowd, the backlash will be spectacular. The schism will throw the so-called Conservative movement in the US back to Goldwater days. Then it will take a new Karl Rove to re-knit the terrified deity worshipers and the greedy rich people who thrive on exploiting them. And it will all repeat itself.

In the meantime, if requiring insurance companies to cover children with pre-existing conditions and allowing your kids to stay on your insurance until they are 26 means we are a socialist country, send me a shirt.

You have to re-elect McCain so he can continue the fight for campaign finance reform otherwise the Supreme Court of the United States might make some ruling that allows corporations to buy unlimited ads or something hideously awful like that.

Now, stroke my cock while you say that.

I’m holding two sparklers.

Just when you think it’s no longer possible to read Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” in a new way, along staggers John McCain, hotly pursued by the teabagger THING he helped create.

Poor Cindy. What if he loses and comes back home to live?

Nah…. He’ll stay in DC. More convenient to getting on the teevee.

[re=537776]ForTheTurnstiles[/re]: Huh? She’s my congresscritter from down here in Tucson, and I’ve never heard about her challenging WALNUTS! Just as well – GG is a decent sort, but she has zero chance of replacing the old coot, as she has no profile or name recognition up in Phoenix.

[re=537744]Aflac Shrugged[/re]: Well put. This really is a lose-lose election; I’m hoping they end up tied and spend the next year or so suing each other.

[re=538123]Troubledog[/re]: That’s rather harsh and if I may say rather self serving?

Many of us hope the Democratic candidate for senator from Arizona will be Nan Stockholm Walden, V.P. and general counsel at Farmers Investment Co., Farmers Water Co., and The Green Valley Pecan Co. (a great firm that donated land on which local Green Valley philanthropists built a progressive social services provider). She spent 15 years as an environmental attorney and consultant. Former staffer for Dem Senators Bradley (Chief of Staff 1993-94) and Moynihan. Former assistant V.P. for Federal relations at the University of Arizona, former counsel to the Western Conference of State Legislators, former director of the Presidio Council, the group that advised the National Park Service on the future of the former Army base in San Francisco. B.A. in environmental studies with honors and distinction from Stanford and a J.D. from Stanford Law, president of Stanford Environmental Law Society.

She’s popular with Democratic women statewide. Is seen as a successful entrepreneur as well as an effective attorney. Could be convinced to run if McCain is seriously damaged by Hayworth. Gabrielle Giffords won reelection to her House seat against an extreme conservative, but isn’t very popular with progressives (used to be a Republican and if you talk to her you can easily tell). She voted yes on healthcare reform, but wouldn’t commit until the last week. Rodney Glassman is a rich kid who’s spent a term on the Tucson city council and is threatening to run. He’s smart, but no one outside Pima County’s ever heard of him.

I use to consider myself pretty liberal conservative, pretty conservative liberal…I was very, very hopeful when Obama took office, thinking times would be positive, the two sides could work together for the better of the Nation. I have since become a very strong Republican. Watching the government try and consume every part of our Nation makes me sick. Watching the government continue on the, ‘handouts’ from the rich, makes me sick. Watching the government work for themselves makes me sick. They are NOT working for the majority, they are working for the minority. John McCain, he works for the majority, it is by no accident he is in office, continues to work in office, and will be re-elected. He has the integrity and tenacity we need to fight this big spending government. ALL politicians ask for money, quit acting like he is the only one. JD is asking for money in his race so that he can pay old legal bills from Abramoff, at least McCain is asking for money to work for all of you!!!
