Barbara must be doing a victory lap right now…

as she is a BIG supporter of J. D. Hayworth. (Who I managed to miss at CPAC).

Morning Joe is just destroying John McCain over the “I was duped” stuff. I remember the presidential campaign, at the time this came up he was ahead. Rush and many other conservatives insisted that if he just came out against this it would be the clincher as the American people didn’t didn’t trust it. He insisted he knew better (after all he was a long time senator) and Gov Palin, as a vice presidential candidate does, backed and defended the top of the ticket. This destroyed him.

I will always have a soft spot for John McCain, he stood alone for the surge when many republicans wanted him and it to go away. If there is a person other than President Bush that we can point to as responsible for the Victory in Iraq it is him. For that reason he is owed a debt that can never be repaid. (Not just in terms of Americans, but Iraqi’s who are still alive because of him).

But just as I wouldn’t consider Nomar the shortstop solution for the RedSox in 2010 as his time has passed I think that Barbara is right. John McCain’s time has passed.

It would appear that Mr. Hayworth shares Sen McCain’s correct positions on the war and on Reconciliation while being better on solid conservative issues.

One prediction: If he loses the primary be aware that he will become THE goto republican as far as the MSM goes for as long as he wants to be.

Update: Boy does Michelle elaborate.

    My soft spot for Senator McCain is tempered by the feeling that he’s simply been inside the Beltway too long.
    Had the gentleman skipped a term as Senator and re-connected with No Kidding American People, his outcome may have been improved.
    That’s all counter-factual, of course.
