I consider Senator John McCain an American hero and a friend. He fights to remind our President that the federal government’s first priority must be strong defense of our homeland, and, like Congressman Johnson, he fights against big-spending colleagues who don’t prioritize for our military’s needs. Upon the Senator’s shoulders he’s carried part of our message of opposition to today’s “fundamental transformation” of America directly to the problem: President Obama and Harry Reid’s far left agenda.
I’ve been willing in the past to cut Palin some slack in her gratuitous water carrying for, and tongue-bathing of, John McCain, but frankly, it’s getting old. It also causes me to question her judgment on other issues, if she thinks that McCain has “carried part of our message.” Which message is that, Sarah? Certainly nothing that has anything to do with constitutional, liberty-minded conservatism. He’s a big-government statist to the bone, and he’s waging a war, along with the other RINOsaurs, on those men and women who have dared to stand up for liberty against the tyranny of his own Ruling Party.
I’m becoming much more comfortable with the notion that Palin’s political career is most likely over, because I think that may be, on balance, a good thing for everybody concerned.
