McCain says he regrets choosing Palin as his running mate

Yeah. Should'a picked a man.

Article at American Thinker. McCain gives an incoherent explanation. So garbled that Thomas Lifson misunderstand it at American Thinker. Because McCain switches about talking about what his advisers told him about not picking a running mate who had caucused with democrats and supported abortion rights. (Lieberman).
It was sound advice that I could reason for myself,” he writes. “But my gut told me to ignore it and I wish I had.
Wish you had what, ignored your advisors and ignored your gut, and chosen Lieberman? Nevermind. You don't even have to try to make sense anymore.

He also said he prefers Trump not attend his funeral. What's so bad about that wish? He could have wished for something that's difficult. This man who bragged about reaching across the aisle for compromise, cannot bring himself to reach within his own side of his aisle. But that makes sense too. Trump was sent to destroy his party as we know it, and so far Trump has been successful at that. His supporters are pleased with results so far, given the most difficult challenges. So yeah, go away pissed off about his party going where Whigs went, and Trump representing all that.

But let's have fun instead.

Forget about the article, go to comments instead. Comment after comment people say the only reason they voted was for Palin. Apparently McCain has no friends among conservative voters.

Comments at Lucianne, where this article is recapped, are equally interesting. Papa, why are all the people so cross?

Miss Sarah outshone him and was what he portrayed himself as being.

Which is why he did so much to undercut her. She was also the real maverick, and a fighter, and a reformer, paving the way for The Donald.

Songbird wanted Lieberman, who was a good guy, but it would have marked the only time in American history when the Democrat party fielded 2 slates for the Presidency.

I've got news for you, McCain, that was the only time that I didn't vote for POTUS, and the reason wasn't Sarah Palin. You bitter old fool.

Bitter old buzzard won't even retire. He's gotta die in office like his pal Drunken Purple Idiot who committed vehicular manslaughter and was rewarded with e a senate set for life - *what the hell is wrong with the people of Mass-hole* Teddy Kennedy.

Now they have said that they want a member of the McCain family to be appointed to fill out his term.

The utter gall of these people.

Hey, you think being Teddy Kennedy West doesn't have its privileges?

William said...

He's got cancer of the brain, and he's dying. That's got to affect his thinking in some way. I do think, however, that if he were raving against Obama the people around him would never let us hear of it.......It would have been the honorable thing to do to resign after he first learned of the diagnosis. This reminds me of Wilson and of the people around him who decided that a massive stroke did not render him unfit for office.

This greatly diminishes McCain and his legacy.
