Video: McCain hits Hayworth with an atomic snark bomb

posted at 4:50 pm on April 12, 2010 by Allahpundit

Even snarkier than the legendary “Celebrity” ad that he dropped on Obama two years ago, if you can believe it. This isn’t first time he’s linked JDH to Birtherism, but the earlier spot was solemn and limited to that single issue. This one’s flush with sarcasm and aimed at making a more comprehensive case that Hayworth’s a crank and, well, a moron, per the citation of the “dumbest congressmen” feature in Radar(!). Is it worth noting that Hayworth’s been backpedaling from the Birther crowd for weeks or that his man/horse argument was a legal point, not a moral one? If it is, then there you go. Exit question one: How often do you hear the words “I know he sucks” in political commercials? Exit question two: How many hours before Warner Bros. makes them pull the ad over the “Mars Attacks!” footage? Over/under is six.

Anyone in favor of term limits needs to consider McCain has been a senator four terms already. If JD can’t get it right in his first term he can be voted out too. McCain has had his chance to make his mark.

If Hayworth could produce a vid of these issues, and then follow it up with:

What do the people of AZ fear more ?
Amnesty for millions of illegals
or
someone asking a funny question ?

What are the chances that AP will even post that a member of the Kenyan Parliament declared Kenya as Obama’s birthplace?

ZERO. AP doesn’t want to see the growing evidence that there is an Usurper in the WH.

You would think that maybe some other member of the Kenyan Parliament might correct him if this was not a widely held belief in Kenya. Nobody did.

“If America was living in a situation where they feared ethnicity and did not see itself as a multiparty state or nation,” Orengo posited, “how could a young man born here in Kenya, who is not even a native American, become the president of America?”

He’s not alone, either. The Kenyan Ambassador to the US, Peter Ogego, says the same thing.

Even Michelle Obama is a ‘birther’, stating Obama’s home country is Kenya.

…but let’s ignore all of that evidence – because there is a COLB released that doesn’t prove a Hawaiian birth!

Mr Purple on April 12, 2010 at 5:52 PM

@Jenfidel

This is the exact transcript. Something wrong?

HUMPHRIES: Would you make the birth certificate an issue if you ran?

PALIN: Um, I think the public, rightfully, is still making it an issue. I don’t have a problem with that.

PrezHussein on April 12, 2010 at 5:52 PM

Good gravy, that was dumb. Also, it is noteworhy that McCain just hit Hayworth 10 times harder than he ever hit Obama. It’s almost like he wanted to be nominated for president but never really wanted to win. What a joke.

Reporter: Senator McCain, is it true that if you are reelected Senator you will push to put a real fence along the Arizona border with Mexico rather than just some phony so called “virtual fence”? And a follow up question sir, if so what will the physical fence look like?

John McCain: That is a very good question and yes when I am reelected Senator I will push hard to put up a physical fence. What will it look like? Well it will run the full length of the border and have special security gates every 100 feet.
All the security gates will have on them:
1) Press one for Spanish (with a response of “Welcome Amigo, my state of Arizona is your state and please take a free map to the wonderful plantation owner employer and campaign contributor of mine of your choice. Also please feel free to enroll you children in our schools and demand that they be taught in Spanish and please also feel free to avail yourself of all the free medical care that you want. If any Gringos get in your way just shoot them or something.”).
2) Press two for English (with a response of “Go to
Infierno you damned bigoted nativist lazy madre fornicario gringos like J.D. Hayworth who do not want what is right for Arizonia del Mexico Norte!!!”).

This is one funny ad. I laughed out loud. JD is a clueless moron. Everybody knows this, yet some people here keep talking about him as if he’s somebody.

this is child’s play to what will happen to him in the general.

Chudi on April 12, 2010 at 5:04 PM

Sot on. I laughed my butt off!

Look, ALL of us have a problem with McCain, but with that said, J.D. ain’t the answer. He’s a one trick pony (immigration) and nothing more.

The guy is a big spender and has problems with corruption.

Arizona should have picked a better candidate.

The hot set up, as I have said before, is for Palin to become POTUS and appoint Johnny Mac as Secretary of Defense. This does a couple of things. It lets Mac retire with some dignity, it gets a decent SecDef, and it allows the Governor to appoint someone worth a damn to the post!

These disloyal criminal birthers, like JD Hayworth and Mr Purple, are going to drive us all nuts! This whole matter has already been put to rest! Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod have both given their highest personal assurance that they have seen the Divine One’s actual long form Certification of Live Immaculate Conception and in Holy Script! Rahm Emanuel saw it from one hospital and David Axelrod saw it from another one! Twice the absolute incontrovertible proof! I don’t know what more any sane person could possibly want! Besides the Queen of Hearts says that she thinks that Barack Obam has cute ears and looks so sexy in his mom jeans so that would settle the matter right there anyway.

Members of the jury, loyal Hotair subjects and the honorable Mr. Allahpundit, the prisoners at the bar, one JD Hayworth and one Mr Purple and one Jim Treacher, being tried in absentia after viciously attacking a State Department security vehicle while it was performing important work for our wonderful government, and various other assorted and sundry miscreant John Doe’s, who all have bench warrants outstanding, all stand accused of engaging in a vile and mass conspiracy of trying to goad Barack Obama, our Dear Leader with the Certification of Live Immaculate Conception from no less than two locations, and at least two parents of unquestionable American loyalties and birthage, into a game of COLB, thereby and with malice of forethought, molesting, tormenting, and otherwise annoying our beloved Dear Leader and all his loyal subjects. Sentence first. Evidence afterwards. Off with their heads!

Cheshire Cat on April 12, 2010 at 6:11 PM

If Hayworth was smart, he’d ask McCain in a debate whether he believes Obama is a natural born citizen and then have him define natural born citizen and then ask him whether he believes anchor babies are natural born citizens. Game over.

Oh, and ask McCain if he has ever referred to himself as a dual citizen and whether dual citizens are natural born citizens. Ask him whether or not he believes all Americans should absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty.

Mr Purple on April 12, 2010 at 5:52 PM

Right now I am more concerned with stopping any radical supreme court justice and the start treaty- those are long term damage to the country. Obamacare – I think can be revised through legislation (but it has to be thoroughly scrubbed, every line known) or repealed. If the Dems lose big in November, especially multiple term incumbents lose big, they will want to do damage to Obama and to the country-hopefully we would be able to hold them off for 2 months. Then, Obama is weakened. Lawyers who saw him being a guaranteed 8 year President will start to leave him, FOIAs will start coming in from the National Archives, Smithsonian, etc and they will have standing to collect data on Obama- for history. Then we will see what he is hiding- a different father? getting into college through money for foreign grants, bad grades, which damn hospital he was born at. The whole works.

I do find it odd that as proud as he was of his Kenyan heritage that he isn’t bringing up their writing of their constitution, business deals with Kenya etc etc that Kenya was hoping for. It’s like he wants us to forget. Their usefulness is over.

journeyintothewhirlwind on April 12, 2010 at 6:25 PM

It seems that I recall the entire Whitehouse Press Corps pouring over GW’s pay records from 1973 trying to determine if he dodged National Guard service per the AWOL claims of the MSM, the DNC, Dan Rather, the Kerry Campaign and other such notables…What in the hell is so bad about the public learning of this President’s personal history? If he were not born overseas, which is possible, he certainly was raised overseas and my have had dual citizenship. Is this important? Of course, we need to know the patronage and loyalties of our President. It matters, hence the founders intent to have only natural born citizens eligible for the highest office. McCain and others who satirize those of us who would like to know more about Obama are merely defending the most radical President ever elected. He may not be hiding anything but the public have a right to know more of this man…It’s that simple!

Insanity is repeating the same thing over and over, but expecting different results. Voting for McCain is the definition of insanity.

Thats generally Nigerians.I had an interesting conversation with a former South African citizen regarding how the ANC contributed to the AIDS epidemic in South Africa.

For a while, the ANC actually told black people to have as much sex and make as many babies as possible, and that AIDS was just a lie made up by the white people to keep blacks from having sex. And then later in South Africa, those same people later told blacks who had AIDS, that you get rid of it by having sex with a white virgin woman. Those beliefs die hard, that belief is still prevalent in South Africa and parts of Africa, and there are government officials still spreading this crap

Having spent some time in Africa myself, I just find it a bit off how some birthers are willing to latch onto any word some African politician claims, as long as it fits in the which ever of the birther conspiracies is being believed in

“Birther” is a pejorative meant to be-little those who are naturally questioning of this President’s bithplace…It is meant to quell debate. Repeating the term only serves the purpose of those who put this monster in office and who mean to keep him there as long as possible. The American people could not, by statute, elect a foreigner. I really doubt they would knowingly elect a person holding dual citizenship, or one who formerly held foreign citizenship…Obama needs to answer these questions…

Good ‘ol John changed that 90 days to an even more generous SINGLE BUSINESS DAY in 2007.

Right….and there is a Hawaiian official who believes in UFO’s and 9/11 ‘truth’ so I guess we can ignore all Hawaiian officials, right?

Better question: why’s a body to care?

The dumbest – the DUMBEST – aspect of Birtherism is the idea that, even if 100% true, that it would matter even one little bit.

Lehosh on April 12, 2010 at 5:34 PM

It matters because some people care about having some standards to establish a definition of “natural born citizen” and also define a standard for the establishment of eligibility to run for president — for future elections.

And the dumbest aspect of anti-birtherism is the willingness of people to just dismiss the issue of what constitutes a “natural born citizen” as if the constitution isn’t worth the paper it was written on.

I’m damned tired of seeing anyone who even hints at doubt over Obama’s qualifications as a “birther” who needs to be silenced.

I donated to Hayworth’s campaign already, and I’ll do so again. I already couldn’t stand McCain, and this smear campaign that he has launched against Hayworth, which began prior to Hayworth even formally announced his candidacy, is disgusting. I’m with those who wished he had fought for the presidency with half the zeal he’s fought for his senate seat.

JannyMae on April 12, 2010 at 10:15 PM

Too sleepy to get po’d but what in the world was crap like this thrown at the “O” on election time?

Unforgiving. Don’t care much about J.D. either.

ProudPalinFan on April 12, 2010 at 10:16 PM

Wow! Copyright violations galore in that video! Those are some friends you got there, McCain.

SagebrushPuppet on April 12, 2010 at 10:18 PM

Mac’s tireless tired campaign …

I know he sucks but he is no Dracula…man thats a good one.

Thanks for that. Guess we’ll be writing ANOTHER check to JD. Keep it up, “friends” of John McCain, you pro-amnesty, “you-have-nothing-to-worry-about-from-Barack-Obama” RINO arsewipes.

Don’t you have a party to go to or something, Meghan?

LegendHasIt on April 12, 2010 at 10:30 PM

I’ve heard JD’s radio show for a long time here in Arizona and it’s no joke that the guy is a moron.

Scrappy on April 12, 2010 at 6:06 PM

I’ve never heard JD Hatworths radio show, but I can imagine how McMavericks radio show(Oh sorry hes’ not a Maverick anymore I guess) would sound near election time and did before!

Near election time:
Build a fence, I’m not a maverick, I’ll fight, fight, fight,
Against Cap and tax, against big spending!

Before election time:
I suspend my pathetic campaign to sign the biggest spending rippoff of the taxpayer to date with my good friends across the isle, for amnasty, for cap and tax, (buys global baloney), “you have nothing to fear from a President Obama he’s a good family man who loves his country”, Not a filthy lyin, Anti-American Marxist bent on redistributing the wealth and destroying capitalism!
I’ll work with my good friends across the isle to kill the filibustering of
the Heathcare bill
er kill the killing of the filibustering of Republican Federal Judges.

Don’t let Old Johns rigid appearance fool ya he’s got more bend in him than a gumby doll and almost as many brain cells.
His judgement re: Obama and his Dem buddies tell me hes’ not qualified for dog catcher and I’m not a liberal I’m a conservative whose ready to throw out tired, old pandering, fossils like Mccain.

dhunter on April 12, 2010 at 10:47 PM

What a horribly immature piece of sh*t that was – full of dozens of copyright violations to boot.

Dave Rywall on April 12, 2010 at 11:46 PM

No news here, we’ve all long known that McCain’s greatest passion is attacking fellow Republicans.

RJL on April 12, 2010 at 11:49 PM

Here is a non-snark McCain spot featuring Jeff Flake.

Earmarks

Jasper61 on April 12, 2010 at 9:06 PM

Thanks Jasper. Something serious for the humorless JD supporters. Lighten up folks, that was damned funny.

Listen to Flake. He’s about the most fiscally conservative politician in America. What he says is fact. Hayworth is not a principled small government Republican. He was dirty. He’s not particularly capable or articulate either.

He talks the Tea Party line but I wouldn’t put my money in his hands if I were you. If Jeff Flake challenged McCain I’d vote for him but JD ain’t up to the job.

rcl on April 13, 2010 at 1:15 AM

The things Hayworth says are no sillier than stopping your campaign for president, running back to Washington and running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off and leading the charge to spend a gazzillion dollars for TARP.

Herb on April 13, 2010 at 9:03 AM

Only a jerk would authorize an ad like this.

John McCain is a jerk.

WannabeAnglican on April 13, 2010 at 9:05 AM

The only travel restriction to Pakistan then was invented in the minds of the birthers. There was no such thing at all.

Pakistan was a definite ally then, not something like Cuba or North Korea

firepilot on April 12, 2010 at 5:27 PM

You need a passport to travel to England or France… moron.

max1 on April 13, 2010 at 9:20 AM

The birther stuff is not important of itself. But it does fit Hayworth’s repuation of being dumb.

Speedwagon82 on April 13, 2010 at 9:23 AM

While it was a gag ad, it was worth it. Because as is known humor is based in truth, and there was so much truth in this ad that makes one really think.

MSGTAS on April 13, 2010 at 9:28 AM

Where the hell was this McCain when he faced Obama ?

William Amos on April 12, 2010 at 5:04 PM

We’ll never know how he would have done if he kept hammering the Obamessiah on inexperience since he had to change that up when you know who came on the ticket….

Speedwagon82 on April 13, 2010 at 10:02 AM

Anyone in favor of term limits needs to consider McCain has been a senator four terms already. If JD can’t get it right in his first term he can be voted out too. McCain has had his chance to make his mark.

fourdeucer on April 12, 2010

McCain has made his mark; two of them in fact. One mark is the lip prints on the butts of the Democrats. The other one is the heel print on the neck of Republicans.

Extrafishy on April 13, 2010 at 11:52 AM

McCain is cleaning his clock in the polls. Time to bid JD adieu and focus on the conservative shift. Give McCain a chance to step up and lead. We have to work on taking power away from the left and then tweaking the rest of congress. Republicans and McCain have at least earned a shot. Politics is a “what have you done for me lately” proposition and lately John McCain has been doing alright. The Arizona tribe has spoken and now it’s just going to be the left trying to cause infighting with this meaningless primary.

mike_NC9 on April 12, 2010 at 5:24 PM

We haven’t spoken yet. The primary ain’t until August.

max1

A passport is not a travel restriction or a travel ban. England requiring a passport to enter, is not the same thing as our own government restricting travel to a country. And you call me a moron.

This supposed travel ban to Pakistan, is something invented by the birthers. It never happened. ts just something repeated over and over as a fact on birther websites.
