GOP AZ Gov. candidate Kari Lake sure enough Zombie John McCain still pulling strings

We are often advised not to put too much pressure on Arizona’s most useless senator, Kyrsten Sinema, as she could leave the Democratic Party in a snort and join the GOP’s sedition caucus. After all, consider her the late GOP Senator John McCain role model Other “personal hero”, just like the late one Rep. John Lewis. (She has many personal heroes, we guess.)

Now, I dare say we probably shouldn’t worry too much about the “wine-drinking bisexual triathlete” turn the holidays upside down. Have you seen the Arizona GOP? State Senator Wendy Rogers is openly Putin’s anti-Semitic apologist who considers “patriotic” white nationalists. He took the international Big Lie and accused French President Emmanuel Macron of stealing his recent election, tweet last month, “Macron stole the election. He digs our fellow French patriots deeper! You guys know how to party like it’s 1776. “


Bad enough that this racist fool is co-opting Prince, but he should at least have the right date. The French Revolution began in 1789.

Rogers isn’t a statewide candidate, but Republican Kari Lake is running for governor on a total shit platform. He also adores Donald Trump’s altar, who hated John McCain. Republicans like Martha McSally, loser of the professional senate race, once straddled the line between respecting the “nonconformist” war hero and ignorance of Trump’s constant flamenco dance at his grave. Now, MAGA GOP tears McCain apart, like he’s a common communist.

During an interview with Trump’s ex economic crank Peter Navarro, Lake proved what a classless piece of shit he is and actively smeared a dead man.

THE NEEDLE: I think we’re learning a lot about what McCain was up to. I saw a video of him from several years ago in Ukraine, and he was a very powerful politician. He wielded a lot of power. He handled Arizona with an iron fist.

McCain was a United States Senator, not the Governor, but let’s move on.

THE NEEDLE: He’s controlled the entire political scene in Arizona from top to bottom, and they don’t want to give up that power.

John McCain is dead. This salient fact seems to have registered in Lake’s twisted mind, but she insists that the zombie John McCain is still a powerful political force.

THE NEEDLE: John McCain may be dead, but he’s rising from his grave trying to keep power in Arizona, and it was never about being able to help the people of Arizona. It was never about that. It was about keeping his power, incredible power across the United States … world power … and he had complete power over Arizona. He has rarely done anything good for people. And people are aware of it.

McCain had a weak relationship with the far right, but after bailing out the Affordable Care Act, Republicans almost collectively turned against him. weeks before dying, seven out of 10 Republicans from Arizona viewed McCain unfavorably, while 62 percent of Arizona Democrats viewed him favorably. This partisan irony is somewhat consistent with McCain’s general popularity for a while. He was respected by Democrat Republicans, but MAGA Republicans don’t care if Democrats like them. They are more likely to see democratic support as overwhelming proof that someone is a “RINO”.

Recent polls show that Sinema has greater approval among Republicans than Democrats. This does not mean that she is a “maverick” like McCain who opposed her party on positions of principle. like torture or health care. She is just a useful idiot. If she changed sides, that utility would end and she would have to greatly increase her insanity to survive as an Arizona Republican.
