The dictionary defines warmonger as “One who advocates or attempts to stir up war.”
Yesterday, at a townhall meeting in Phoenix, Arizona, voters gave RINO warmonger John McCain a piece of their mind.
To which I say “About time!” and “HaHaHaHaHaHaHaHa! Couldn’t have happened to a more deserving guy.”
From The Blaze, Sept. 5, 2013:
A number of Sen. John McCain’s constituents are not happy with the Arizona Republican’s support of President Barack Obama’s plan to take military action against Syria. Voters made that much perfectly clear when they confronted him at a town hall in Phoenix on Thursday.
“We didn’t send you to make war for us. We sent you to stop the war,” one man said to applause, CNN reports.
Another man told McCain Congress is ignoring its duty to represent voters.
“This is what I think of Congress,” he said, holding a bag of marshmallows in his hand. “They are a bunch of marshmallows. That’s what they are. That’s what they’ve become. Why are you not listening to the people and staying out of Syria? It’s not our fight.”

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday afternoon passed a new use-of-force resolution that, if passed by the Senate, will give Obama authority to carry out military strikes. It also includes a loophole that may leave room for placing troops on the ground.
The resolution only prohibits “the use of United States Armed Forces on the ground in Syria for the purpose of combat operations.” The language seems to leave open the possibility of deploying troops for non-combat operations, such as securing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s chemical weapons.
“Polls this week have shown more Americans oppose military strikes in Syria than support them,” CNN reports.
A woman at the Arizona town hall, claiming to have an 18-year-old cousin in Syria, said the U.S. had not pursued all routes of diplomacy.
“For me, to listen to you say there is no good option in Syria – I refuse to believe that…The good option right now is to take Saudi Arabia and Iran and force them to stop supporting the two sides in Syria. And you could do it. You can do it by diplomacy, not bombs, Sen. McCain. We cannot afford to shed more Syrian blood,” she said.
McCain validated the voters’ concerns, saying that there are “strong feelings” from both sides of the issue: “[A]ll of us, our hearts go out to those people who have been massacred and killed in this terrible bloodletting that’s been going on.”
Blah. Blah. Blah.
By the way, conservative public-homosexual blogger Kevin DuJan (of HillBuzz) thinks John McCain is a closeted homosexual – which is the best and only explanation I’ve seen for why, time after time, McCain voted and acted against the interests of conservatives, the GOP, and America. Here’s what DuJan wrote::
I’ve never said this before because I was never sure and I don’t have any proof of it, but I really think that John McCain might be secretly gay too…because at the end of his career he’s still trotting out to help the Left whenever Democrats demand it. A former presidential candidate in his last term who knows he will never be a real national leader again doesn’t need to do the things that McCain just keeps doing to push the Left’s agenda under the “maverick bipartisan” banner. Back in 2000, before George Bush won the Republican nomination, I felt in my gut that Democrats were getting ready to out McCain and that they were laying the groundwork by having John Grisham write the book “The Brethren”…because the main character in the book is clearly based on McCain, but he actually becomes the Republican presidential nominee in the story instead of losing to Bush; in “The Brethren”, the McCain character carries on a flirtation with who he thinks is a teenaged boy…and it just gets so specifically creepy that I wonder if someone fed Grisham intel on McCain and told him to create a “novel” out of it. I am sure you are aware this happens all the time with writers, both in books and on TV shows and in movies; political operatives feed stories to creative people all the time so that dirt on an opponent can get out in creative ways and become part of the cultural landscape before Democrats need to launch the actual attack via MSNBC and CNN. I have a hard time believing that “The Brethren” featured a very McCain-like closeted gay presidential candidate in the VERY SAME YEAR that some thought McCain would become the Republican nominee; you may have never even heard of this book, but I bet you would have if Bush had lost in the primaries. McCain is one of those men who just set off my gaydar but I’ve never heard any stories about him doing anything with guys…though his energetic rushes to help the Left whenever Democrats call always make me think he’s protecting himself by selling out his Republican constituents on issue after issue.
Stupidly, Republicans keep electing guys like John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Aaron Schock and sending them to Washington to represent conservative constituents…but on important votes these guys will ALWAYS betray the people who trust them because Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi will pick up the phone and say in no uncertain terms “Vote with us or we out your sorry ass on national tee-vee tomorrow, Mary”. When that phone rings, you’d think it was Zac Ephron calling the way Graham and Schock in particular leap to their feet to do whatever Reid or Pelosi want them to do…because lying about who they really are and keeping their liaisons with men a secret is such an important part of their lives at this point that they just can’t imagine functioning without Democrats pulling their strings like this. I honestly don’t think these guys would even know what to do anymore if they didn’t have Democrats always at the ready to tell them how to vote…or else. Like with Stockholm Syndrome, I think these guys learn to love their arrangements. I’m going to start calling it Lindsey Graham Syndrome, since he’s the most obvious face of this behavior [….]
