Sarah Palin: 'I Owe America A Global Apology' For Costing John McCain the 2008 Election: VIDEO

Palin

In a Thursday night segment on Sean Hannity's show criticizing President Obama's response to the ISIS threat, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin dropped the following truth bomb - candidly saying she owed America a "global apology" for screwing up John McCain's chances back in 2008. Because, you know, had McCain become President everything presumably would be sunshine and rainbows and peace and love...or something like that.

I think the correct phrase she was looking for when she settled on "global apology" was "global you're welcome"

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Jon Stewart calls out the Republicans pointing fingers at Obama over Iraq and reminds us that they're all "completely f--king wrong" about it, particularly lead singer John McCain.

Said McCain: "We had that war won, and we blew it."

Stewart: "And all we would have to do to maintain the victory is stay there forever. It's like when you win at a casino, and to get the money you have to live there."

Arizona Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake Urge Brewer Veto of Arizona Anti-Gay Discrimination Bill

Mccain Flake

"I hope Governor Brewer will veto #SB1062," Arizona Senator John McCain tweeted this morning, joining his colleague Senator Jeff Flake who tweeted a nearly identical message over the weekend.

Brewer spoke about the bill with CNN on Friday:

“Well, it’s a very controversial piece of legislation. We know that. We know that it’s failed in a lot of states across the country. ... I’ve been reading about it on the Internet and I will make my decision some time before ... by next Friday ... if I do decide to sign it. But it’s very controversial, so I’ve got to get my hands around it.”


John McCain Compares ENDA to 'Busing', Says it Might Lead to 'Reverse Discrimination'

Despite the fact that his wife is petitioning him to do so, it appears unlikely that Senator John McCain (R-AZ) will be swayed to a'yes' vote on ENDA, the Huffington Post reports:

MccainWhen asked what lingering concerns he had about backing ENDA, McCain replied, "Whether it imposes quotas, whether it has reverse discrimination, whether it has the kinds of provisions that really preserve equal rights for all citizens or, like for example, busing. Busing was done in the name of equality. Busing was a failure. Quotas were a failure. A lot of people thought they were solutions. They weren't. They bred problems."

Polls show that a majority of Americans support making it illegal to fire LGBT individuals, and young voters -- including Republicans -- are more supportive of gay rights than older voters.

Yet McCain insisted young people would share his concerns about the legislation.

"I think the young people know we do not need reverse discrimination, they don't believe in quotas and they don't believe in some of the programs we saw in the name of racial equality implemented in the past which turned out to be counterproductive," he said. "Ask people in Boston if busing turned out to be a good idea."


Cindy McCain Petitions John McCain to Support ENDA

MccainAn HRC organizer nabbed Cindy McCain at a Staples in Phoenix, and got her to sign a petition on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), and send it to her husband, the Washington Post reports:

Arizona is a key state, since activists are targeting both McCain and his fellow Republican Sen. Jeff Flake; McCain has opposed the bill in the past, while Flake has not voted on the issue since taking office in January...

...At the moment, it does not appear that Cindy McCain has changed her husband's mind. In an e-mail, McCain's spokesman Brian Rogers wrote, "Senator McCain enjoys and appreciates having discussions on the important issues of the day with all the members of his family, and he respects their views."

Some bigots are really hard to turn.
