My Open letter to John McCain (FK HIM)

John McCain, you had it all. Your story was an Americana wet dream. A downed naval aviator fighter pilot who survived two years of, what I assume would nothing short of hell, as a POW in Vietnam and an esteemed politician with numerous bill passed with his fingerprints on them. A man who even has a navy battleship named in his honor. You even ran for President and introduced us to Sarah Palin.

This is a storybook like a career.

If only the story is fiction rather than truth.

You were for amnesty before you were against it (politically convenient when facing a Tea Party Candidate for your Senate seat)

You once labeled your stance against torture “a defining issue” for Americans and the role of the  Commander in Chief before you signed legislation to allow it.

You were involved and exonerated in regards to Lincoln Savings and Loan but we all know where there is smoke (at the tune of 3 billion) there is fire.

People called you a "Maverick". And you believed them. You have been an elected official since 1982. You're one of the longest-serving senators in American history. You have gone as far as to defend career politicians as “irreplaceable”. Of course, you would. U.S. Term Limits (USTL) offered you to sign the pledge to: “to sponsor a bill for a constitutional amendment limiting House members to three terms and senators to two. But you naturally refused.

Lastly, you have gone on a crusade against our sitting President. You went to Germany recently on foreign soil and talked about how our administration “is in disarray”. Disgraceful.

 "I think that the Flynn issue obviously is something that shows that in many respects this administration is in disarray and they've got a lot of work to do. The president, I think, makes statements (and) on other occasions contradicts himself” 

You're the same guy who had such "sensitive information" fall into his lap last year, the smoking gun that would show a link between Russia and Trump. It failed. You're the same guy who bashed Trump for having a connection with Russia even though you're the same son of a bitch who asked Russia to help your campaign back in 2008. But that doesnt stop you from talking tough on Russia. From the Hill last month:

"For the sake of America’s national security and that of our allies, I hope President Trump will put an end to this speculation and reject such a reckless course," McCain said in a statement Friday. "If he does not, I will work with my colleagues to codify sanctions against Russia into law."

Maybe that's because they told you to kiss off and REFUSED to help you or anyone else running for office. That seems rather ironic with Trump and his obvious interference from Russia. Or maybe they just wanted to back a winner?  You know, BEFORE he rebuked you and your sad request. Wikileaks exposed your pathetic ass. Now what? Too bad Churkin didn't die a few years earlier eh Johnny boy?

What's to even suggest and wonder about your relationship with "The Kingdom". A boot licking extraordinaire if I've ever seen one.

You play up this war hero business still without realizing you have stayed too long. Your accomplishments will only be as memorable as your constant desire to broker power blocs in your various federal posts as well as some of the things I've outlined here.

I won't call you a RINO, traitor, whore or a sell-out. You're part of the old guard. You're an establishment relic. So you do not understand Trump. Or me. Or the "New" Right.

You were once the star of the Republican party. Now you a white dwarf. Your star is dead. Just going through the motions now. But don't get away mad ol' Maverick, just go away.
