The Republican Hamster Wheel - Arizona GOP Censures John McCain's "Liberal" Record

Better Times?

Apparently being all for bombing just about any place, anywhere, any time for damned near any reason isn't enough to earn Republican street cred these days.   Arizona's GOP has censured senator John McCain for his "liberal" record.

Former three-term Republican senator John Kyl came to McCain's defence.

“I’ve gone to dozens of these meetings and every now and then some wacky resolution gets passed,” Kyl told the newspaper on Saturday. “But most people realize it does not represent the majority of the vast numbers of Republicans.”

McCain doesn't face the voters again until 2016 by which point he'll be 80.  Yet the allure of another term in Washington is obvious.  It ain't Arizona.
