Difficult choice is the only rational choice in AZ Senate race featuring renegade McCain

This evening, Monday, Oct. 10, at 7:00 p.m. Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick will debate Republicrat John McCain. The hour-long event will air on AZ PBS Channel 8.

Growing numbers of conservative Republicans, many of whom as elected state delegates voted overwhelmingly to censure the very senior senator, are weary of his career long deceits.  He has taken his wrath out on them by purging them from their elected precinct committeeman posts, via an expensive campaign utilizing deceptive mailers. Though now in his 80’s, and scoring an F rating by Conservative Review, McCain is running for yet another six-year term.

Conservatives  have had their fill of the radically leftwing McCain and many are doing the previously unthinkable — planning to cast their ballots for the Congressional District One U.S. Representative Ann Kirkpatrick. Former twice elected Maricopa County Republican chairman Rob Haney has launched theNever McCaincampaign.

Kirkpatrick is far from perfect, but McCain, who runs as a Republican and then repeatedly colludes with Democrats, is worse.  Republicans have legitimate expectations that voting for someone who claims the GOP mantel will be with us the majority of the time. Actually, the man who configures himself as a “maverick” has voted to confirm many of Barack Obama’s far left cabinet nominees and his nominees to the federal judiciary. As McCain’s close associate Hillary Clinton and actual presidential choice famously asked, “What difference does it make?”

As a freshman senator, Kirkpatrick will not have the clout to do the same damage.  She has also campaigned on term limiting herself. Decades of the disastrous Reign of McCain has made that an appealing option.

The debate will hosted by Arizona PBS and the Arizona Republic. Count on “Horizon” moderator Ted Simons and Republic reporter Yvonne Wingett Sanchez to lob softballs in McCain’s direction. Cunning liberals running as Republicans are nearer to their hearts than actual Democrats.
