Big Government Huckster John McCain’s bitter, clingy $21 million primary fight; Update: Election night results; Meghan McCain taunts Hayworth

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 24, 2010 06:35 PM

Scroll for multi-state primary election results… I have watched and listened to many establishment Republicans and TV talking heads deride GOP Senate candidate J.D. Hayworth as a “clown,” “charlatan,” and a “huckster.” I have watched and listened to many purported “Tea Party” spokespeople and limited-government lobbyists defend entrenched GOP Senate incumbent John McCain as a […]

Open-borders/BigGov/Climate Change huckster John McCain blames “Eastern press”

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 17, 2010 12:21 PM

You have got to be freaking kidding me. Mr. I Was The Nation’s Number One Illegal Alien Amnesty Champion Before I Was Against It/Mr. Call Me Maaaaaverick Except When I Need The Right To Get Re-elected is attacking his erstwhile friends in the “Eastern press” for creating the impression that he is a desperate political […]

Obama’s border Kabuki: Don’t believe the hype; Update: Meddling Mexico dictates how U.S. should use its National Guard

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 25, 2010 03:34 PM

Scroll for updates… Photoshop credit: Applecross Media and Big Fur Hat The most glaring sign that President Obama’s announcement of border funding and National Guard troops is one big, phony charade? He apparently didn’t even bother to let the governor of besieged Arizona, Gov. Jan Brewer, know about it. Via Yahoo News: The Obama administration […]

Johnny-come-lately McCain: The sickly smell of desperation

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 13, 2010 08:55 AM

John McCain is everywhere now preaching the gospel of secure borders. He’s inescapable. And shameless. And desperate. Yesterday, readers forwarded his latest spam e-mail: Where do you stand on border security? My Friend, One of the fundamental responsibilities of our government is to secure our borders so that our citizens, no matter where they live […]

DLTDHYOTWO: Bob Bennett gets the boot. And next…

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 10, 2010 10:54 AM

I’ve said it before and it bears repeating even louder: Entrenched incumbency is not an argument for more entrenched incumbency. Conservatives in Utah sent that message loud in clear this weekend in ousting entrenched GOP incumbent Sen. Bob Bennett, who begged and pleaded furiously to save his hide in the weeks leading up to the […]

John S. McCain, Will You Please Go Now?

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 23, 2010 03:24 AM

My friends. It’s time for some real straight talk. It’s time to take a good, hard look at the entrenched Beltway Republicans who call you their “friends” — and then repeatedly vote against you, trash you, and mock you in between elections until it’s time to pander again. Look at John McCain’s record, not his […]

John McCain: Unrepentant Climate Change Republican; Update: Lindsay Graham pushes carbon caps

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 25, 2010 11:22 AM

Ladies and gentlemen, I call your attention to the key passage in unrepentant Climate Change Republican John McCain’s Senate floor statement yesterday on cap-and-trade. Note well (hat tip: Edward John Craig/Planet Gore): Let me say to my colleagues, I am proud of my record on climate change. I have been all over the world, and […]

A failure of GOP imagination

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 24, 2010 09:55 AM

I’ve already made clear: John McCain is the problem with the GOP. And he’s trying to install his mini-mes as congressional candidates across the country. Yesterday, Mitt Romney lined up with He That Ails the GOP: Romney, the former Governor of Massachusetts released a statement today, saying it would be “hard to imagine the United […]

Attention, GOP: John McCain is the problem

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 22, 2010 02:18 PM

In critiquing Glenn Beck’s CPAC speech taking the Republican Party to task for failing to own up to its Big Government lapses, Bill Bennett cites various Republicans who have admitted the party’s culpability. But see if you can spot the glaring problem with his defense of the GOP: From Jim DeMint to Tom Coburn to […]

Dick Armey whitewashes John McCain’s fiscal irresponsibility record; Update: Armey walks it back

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 10, 2010 01:35 PM

Scroll for updates… You’ve got to be freaking kidding me. I mean, really. Come on: As former Rep. J.D. Hayworth prepares to officially enter the Republican primary race against incumbent Sen. John McCain, he probably had better not count on any support from FreedomWorks, the national conservative group closely associated with the Tea Party movement. […]

Supreme Court decimates McCain-Feingold campaign finance law; Update: Citizens United reacts to victory

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 21, 2010 10:54 AM

Many of you may remember a scathing documentary by Citizens United about Hillary Clinton from 2007. I blogged about it at the time here. The film became the center of a huge legal battle over the free-speech-stifling McCain-Feingold campaign finance scheme. Parts of the law were struck down by the Supreme Court when the Wisconsin […]

Ugh: McCain & Company melting on cap-and-tax

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 8, 2009 10:41 AM

I said it last month and it bears repeating: Beware the Climate Change Republicans. Are you ready for the latest signs of capitulation by GOP global warming preacher Sen. John McCain and company? 1) Senate Dems opening to nuclear as a path to GOP support, 60 votes Key Senate Democrats signaled yesterday they are willing […]

The trouble with Meghan McCain

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 15, 2009 06:03 AM

You know what’s wrong with Meghan McCain? It’s not her weight. It’s not her voice. It’s not her looks. She’s a beautiful young girl with TV-friendly poise and natural charm. The trouble with Meghan McCain is that, like her father, she has no fixed ideological principles — conservative, liberal, or otherwise. She seems to have […]

Richard Viguerie responds to McCain’s new PAC

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 8, 2009 03:47 PM

Just between “friends.”

No, thanks, “my friend”

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 7, 2009 01:53 PM

John McCain wants your money. This solicitation is landing in many readers’ e-mail boxes: My Friend, In the time since the 2008 presidential campaign ended I have had a chance to reflect on many things. And as I said on election night, I truly cannot adequately express how indebted I am to you, my entire […]

The increasingly erratic, super-gaffetastic Joe Biden

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 22, 2008 08:32 AM

A heartbeat away… My syndicated column today takes you through a tour of all the latest Joe Biden gaffes that aren’t getting replayed endlessly on the nightly news and comedy shows. I said yesterday that the McCain camp ought to toss the “erratic” label right back in Joe Biden’s face and defuse that rhetorical bomb. […]

The Colin Powell endorsement: Triumph of hope over reality

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 19, 2008 11:27 AM

Gravitas. The media’s in a tizzy over Colin Powell’s Meet the Press endorsement of Barack Obama this morning. It’s not a surprise to anyone who’s paid attention to his pro-Obama murmurings over the last four months. How will people outside the Beltway bubble respond? Yawn. Here’s the vid: Powell’s embrace of Barack Obama is a […]
