Of course, McCain has been none too popular with conservatives after he basically called in his candidacy against Obama in 2008, losing miserably. He gave little more effort than Giuliani and reaped proportionate benefit.
After years of lukewarm support of conservative causes, McCain had the gall to read from a Washington Times Op Ed last Wednesday on the Senate floor, calling the Tea Party participants "hobbits".
I thought dehumanization was supposed to be reserved for one's enemies. Is that what we are to you, Mr. McCain? Do you see us as your enemies? 20 percent of the American people? Because last I saw, you have an R after your name. Do you think that offending the Tea Party, most of whom vote Republican in elections, is a good way to promote yourself or your causes?
I hope you switch parties, Mr. McCain. You have been shilling for Democrats these many years. At least be honest about it.
