Well, this brightened my day a bit.:)




Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) hinted that he might be serving his last term in office, admitting that he does not want to become “one of these old guys that should’ve shoved off.”

McCain, a 27-year veteran of the Senate and former presidential candidate, made the admission while speaking about his relationship with President Obama.
...

The 77-year-old's current term is up in 2016. When asked if this would really be his last term, McCain backtracked a bit.

“Nah, I don’t know,” McCain said. “I was trying to make a point. I have to decide in about two years so I don’t have to make a decision. I don’t want to be one of these old guys that should’ve shoved off.”

I don't see him retiring before any of his spawn are old enough to ascend to his seat. Are any of them going to be old enough?

Yes, he has kids older than me.

Douglas (b. 1959, adopted 1966),
Andrew (b. 1962, adopted 1966),
Sidney (b. 1966),
Meghan (b. 1984),
John Sidney IV "Jack" (b. 1986),
James "Jimmy" (b. 1988),
Bridget (b. 1991, adopted 1993)

I like the way he "saved" the John Sidney name for his "real" son.....

So if my math is correct, that "real" son will just happen to be old enough to be a senator in 2016. If so, I predict it will be just like Rep. Hunter's retirement, and his son taking the seat.

McCain is a disgrace to my state. The question is who will replace him? Whispers of Sarah Palin (bought a house in Scottsdale and becoming resident), Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu (had a gay sex scandal so probably wont run), who knows?

According to his sources, John McCain says he will wait a few years before he decides to retire. :rolleyes:

It would be much more satisfying if he got voted out.

Yes, he is. And so are Janet Napolitano, Jeff Flake, Jan Brewer, and Joe Arpaio.

Jim Deakin sounds like he's going to run again. (He's the Paulian who had the momentum until the Missing Link jumped in the race and threw the GOP primary to BSC McCain.)

I'm not too worried about one of McCain's kids running.

David Schweikert would be good replacement; he's one of the better guys in congress and would be one of our stronger candidates in 2016 imo.

Joe Arpaio 2016!!! He is leading in polls for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate. He will be only 84-years old by the election day: http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/arizona-sheriff-joe-arpaio-mulls-us-senate-bid/story?id=12921937

I want to see McCain run again and lose the primary. IIRC Arizona isn't a Liberty-Minded State, I mean, they elected this guy multiple times.

The current notion is that you can't recall senators as there is no mechanism at the federal level to do so. They think any state laws allowing such are unconstitutional.

That would be convenient for McCain. The State should recall him and elect a new Senator. Let McCain take it to court.

If suspect it would end up like the recall attempt of senator from NJ who likes to bang underage girls. He pre-empted the recall and took it to court to stop it.
For reference sake:

What a bunch of nonsense from these idiots in the Court. They will violate explicit dictates from the Constitution on any given day, and then make something up if it suits their needs. It's a State issue. It makes no freaking sense for there not to be a recall or impeachment process.


The Constitution itself is silent on the issue of recalls.

The federal Constitution wins when there are conflicts between it and state constitutions. But when powers aren’t enumerated in the federal document, they belong to states.

He didn't bang underage girls, or prostitutes for that matter.
