Johnny Walnuts McCain is a real fickle pickle: one moment he’s playing Benghazi bingo and taking selfies with terrorists, the next moment he’s saying sensible things. In any case, Senator McCain (R-AZ) is not too happy with the tragic state of his party and its blind catering to the lowest common denominator (See Donald Trump).
Immediately following Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) decision to not accept a nomination for president, Republican power players like Senator John McCain (R-AZ) were bereft.
We’ve got so many problems—there are a myriad of problems. None of this is going to turn out well for the Republican Party, a dismayed McCain told reporters.
I am at a loss. OK? I do not know what’s going to happen. I just don’t see that a lot of it’s going to turn out well. Because there are too many divisions within our party.
It seems rather odd that these words would be coming out of the mouth of John McCain, considering he helped destroy the GOP when he picked Sarah Palin as his 2008 running mate. Maybe he needs a nap or something.
Although he may seem senile at times, McCain is no slouch. He is one of the few Republicans left who can see the demise of his party–beholden to the likes of Trump and Cruz as it seems to be. After all, McCain once praised President Obama so it’s not like he’s all that bad and blindly partisan. In short, McCain is right; the Republican party is inevitably doomed to fail in the face rabid xenophobia, ignorance, racism, and just flat-out weirdness.
