Don’t Ask For My Support, Or Money

I was cleaning out my spam on one of my email accounts this morning, and came across an interesting tidbit……from John McCain:

My Friend,

Throughout my life I have faced many challenges that have tested my character and my values. I have met each of these challenges with resolve because I believe that service to our country is my calling in life. I have long said that I owe America more than she has ever owed me and I never doubt that our country is the greatest in the world.

Today, we face perilous challenges that threaten our nation’s economy and security. We are being led down a dangerous path as the current Democratic leaders continue to spend at an unprecedented rate. I have been the leading opponent against them, fighting everyday against wasteful spending and government expansion. However, if I am to continue fighting for our shared values, I must win reelection to the United States Senate.

You probably got such an email as well.  And perhaps you had the same reaction I did.  You have GOT to be freakin’ kidding me!!

I’m sorry Senator McCain, there is no way I can NOT add my name to the list of people who support you, nor can I send you a single dime.  I do not believe you are the right person for the job.  You call yourself a maverick, but what you really are is an aging military hero, who has lost touch with the rest of America, pretty much like the Democrats.

Aren’t you the guy who hurried back to D.C. to pass the first bail-out bill under GWB?  That one act lost you a lot of support from us common folk in your run for the presidency.  Oh, some of us might have gone ahead, against our better judgment, and voted the ‘R’ ticket, but by that time, I think more people were voting for Sarah, than for you.

No sir, I cannot support your bid for  re-election.  It’s time for you to pass the torch to those who truly reflect the values of your state, and the country.

    Im praying we dont have McCain shoved down our throats AGAIN. Please tell me this loser isnt actually wanting to run again in 2012? I dont want to have to decide between 4 more years of Obama or McCain.

    I will laugh my arse off if he loses. He needs to go away with all the other rinos.

    I’m thinking he should lose the primary to J.D. Hayworth.  Heh.
