Labrador backed Hayworth, ripped McCain
Idaho state Rep. Raul Labrador, already struggling to win national Republican support for his challenge to Democratic Rep. Walt Minnick, isn't backing away from harshly critical comments he made about his party's 2008 presidential nominee, Sen. John McCain.

Labrador won his party's nomination in an upset against Vaughn Ward, a veteran who was endorsed by McCain after serving as the Arizona senator's Nevada state director in 2008. During a debate in late April, Labrador tore into McCain as an expedient and calculating politician.

"McCain is the problem with the Republican Party," Labrador said to applause. "McCain is the kind of individual who is willing to compromise his principles in order to get a result. And I will tell you, I will never compromise my principles to get elected," Labrador said, according to a recording provided to POLITICO by a Democratic source.

Labrador's comments came in response to a question at the Canyon County Republican Women's debate, about whether he would support an Arizona-style immigration law, and who he would support in the Senate primary between McCain and former Rep. J.D. Hayworth.

2. LOL McCain is trying so hard to convince voters he is a bigot
And he can't even do THAT right.

Google the WWII record of his grandfather Adm John S McCain for insight into the somewhat spotty record of McCains during wartime. It was characterized by several unexplained lapses in judgment that led to losses of ships and personnel. Nevertheless the Navy saw fit to promote this fuckup to Admiral albeit posthumously after his deathi mmediately following the surrender of Japan.
