Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

MCCAIN: WHY WOULD I WANT TO BE THE LEADER OF A PARTY OF SUCH A**HOLES?

Rating: 5 votes, 5.00 average.

While the media is obsessing over Harry Reid's embarrassing comments about President Obama, Politico reports on another juicy story reported in Game Change, the new book on the 2008 campaign:

[McCain aides John] Weaver and [Mark] Salter begged McCain to ease up. He was already the face of the Iraq surge. Now he was becoming the face of what opponents called 'amnesty.' Just tone down the rhetoric, his advisers pleaded.

McCain refused. He was disgusted by republicans in Congress and talk radio gasbags such as rush Limbaugh who bashed immigrants. 'They're going to destroy the f**king
party,' he would say.

As McCain's town hall meetings devolved into shouting matches over immigration, the candidate let his frustration show through. He called Lindsey Graham in despair. Listen to these people, McCain said. Why would I want to be the leader of a party of such a**holes?

Let's see if McCain still stands by his tough words when CIR comes up this year.

    Well, he's right, and I don't know the answer to this question. Maybe it is his destiny to serve as warning to others.

    Hope this gets out and more and more moderate Republicans would take heed of the plight of their party. The future of the Republican party would be in jeopardy if they let the extreme right fringe take over the party and dictate its agenda.

    I am more concerned about Dems being chicken than the GOP..I am more concerned about rednecks in the Dem Party such as Heath Schuler and Jim Webb and Mike Tester than about the GOP.

    Guess it is more a function of greed rather than racism in most cases!

    Great question. I'm sure that Obama has asked the same question many times in private conversations with David Axelrod.

    LOL! As the Continental Airlines commercial once asked the question, have you been to Beantown? Having lived in Massachusetts during my college years, I can tell you that a "Can" is not going to pick up the Senators seat.

    Depends on the poll you look at. The biggest problem is not the GOP. McCain, Graham, Hutchinson, Cornyn, Brownback, Gregg, Snowe, Collins, Alexander, Bond, Lugar and even Kyl and Crapo will vote for CIR. The biggest problems are Dems McCaskill, Tester, Webb, Pryce, Lincoln, Hagan, Durbin, Drogan, Ben Nelson and Sanders..now that is the real bad news. We have to get half of these Dems on our side..and that is a tall order! And in the House we have serious problems with Dems..especially, two southern Indiana reps, several southern reps and of course the biggest anti of them all...Heath Schuler.

    There is a lot of time for Nov elections. Thisngs can change between now and then.

    But late Kennedy's seat is going to be decided next week (special election)
