Palin defends McCain who received censure from state party

Sarah Palin defended Sen. John McCain on Facebook on Monday after the Arizona state Republicans voted to censure McCain for not being conservative enough and for occasionally crossing the aisle to vote with Democrats on immigration and healthcare. This sounds much like the same faction of conservatives that voted to censure U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski in 2012 for conspiring with “far left groups.”

From Palin’s Facebook post:

During this time of dangerous lawlessness in the executive branch, those who agree on stopping the intended transformation of our country had better unite to fight. So at this time, it’s perplexing to see Senator McCain’s good efforts to uncover the Obama agenda being ignored and perhaps even hindered now by those wanting to censure the Arizona senator…We live in a time of diminishing virtues because of societal influence towards total self-centeredness. This is unfortunate and makes raising families, conducting business, and governing that much more challenging. I know how important the virtue of loyalty is because in politics it’s pretty much nonexistent. I stand on that most important virtue and answer those asking today: ‘Yes, I am proud to have been asked to run with him in 2008, and he is my friend.’ One more thing, if you’ve met his beautiful mother you know where he gets his tenacity. Roberta McCain is one tough Mama Grizzly.

    I know a rising star in Arizona’s Legislature, Kelly Townsend. From her facebook and the many Arizona people who comment to her, John McCain is totally out of tune with what his employer’s desires and wants. John McCain is like so many other Senators, Lisa included, who decide on their opinion vs that of what we tell them to do. No wonder the vets got the shaft with the Budget bill and the empty “promise” to fix it at a later date! No wonder the debt limit has been increased time and again when if that was VISA they would deny anybody who was too far in debt to increase that debt by thousands of dollars without the means to pay it back! I could go on with example after example. So, Sarah Palin, who I’m sure is a personal friend of John McCain, needs to butt out of what Arizonians do to reign back in the likes of John McCain and Jeff Flake (Mcain’s replacement). We Alaskans get our dander up when Lower 48ers try to tell us what to do and whom to support or not support, Sarah needs to understand that. I’d bet when she goes back to her home in Arizona, she will be told off, and rightfully so.
