One of the most amazing political stories of the last year is how hard John McCain fought to keep his seat in the Senate.

Arizonians were amazed at the media blitz of nasty spots, not just negative advertising. Herman Goering would be proud of the way McCain brought down J.D. Hayworth. So would the National Wrestling Alliance.

We are all thinking why didn’t he fight like that for the Presidency?

Now I have to go to the polls in November thinking “He’s a war hero. He’s a war hero…the commies tortured him for five and half years…he was Jimmy Cagney…a tough guy…war hero…”

But he did say the commies broke him. Even though he never gave in to their demands.

Will he go back to giving into the endless demands of the American Left?

He might throw in with the new conservative movement. It wouldn’t hurt to have an old soldier in the Senate. The endless battles in Washington could be made irrelevant by larger issues of the economy and war. Others can deal with the former but the later is McCain territory. I would prefer a fresh crop of conservatives including some with combat experience in the Global War On Terror, but Big John must see where we are now as a nation. It’s do or die time.

It might be that politicians think the public is stupid. Perhaps we are, but they might not be too bright either.

Each individual lives in a bubble. The words we use to escape the bubble and communicate have imprecise meaning and reflect emotion more than thought.

We all lie to each other and ourselves. But when John McCain said recently that he never called himself a Maverick, in my bubble, there was a rumbling.

For what it’s worth, I will be voting for J.D. Hayworth to replace Senator McCain here in Arizona. Word-Drum is down with the whole Tea Party scene. It’s time to throw out all of the liberals.

With love and respect for the former war hero and tough guy, let’s wish him well in his retirement.
