A Tale Of Two Evil People — Part I

Let me start off by saying that this is a rant.  I am beyond infuriated as I write this post, and while I generally believe it is better to be well-modulated and rise above the throng, there is a time when white-hot rage needs an outlet.  This is one such time.  I initially intended this to be a single post, but it went past the limits of what I consider optimal length, so I broke it into two parts.  This is Part I, and Part II will follow later this afternoon.

Two stories came to my attention last night, as I was trying to find fun things for my Jolly Monday post (at which I failed miserably).  Both stories concern the late John McCain, and I think you will agree that he deserved much better than this.

An ugly person, inside and out …

The Face of Evil — Kelli Ward

Take a look at that face, folks, for that is the face of ugly.  That is the face of evil.  That is a face I hope never to see sitting in the U.S. Senate.  Allow me to introduce Ms. Kelli Ward of Arizona, a candidate for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Jeff Flake.  This is not the first time Ms. Ward has tripped across my radar, but it is the first time that prodded my mind with a hot poker. In July 2017, when John McCain first announced that he had been diagnosed with brain cancer, Ms. Ward made the following public statement:

“I hope that Senator McCain is going to look long and hard at this, that his family and his advisers are going to look at this, and they’re going to advise him to step away as quickly as possible. So that the business of the country and the business of Arizona being represented at the federal level can move forward… We can’t have until the 2018 election, waiting around to accomplish the Trump agenda, to secure the border and stop illegal immigration and repeal Obamacare and fix the economy and fix the veterans administration, all those things need to be done and we can’t be at a standstill while we wait for John McCain to determine what he’s going to do.” [Emphasis added]

She said she hoped that Arizona’s governor would consider appointing her to fill McCain’s seat. But on Friday, it got even better …

Last Friday, Senator John McCain’s family announced that he would stop treatment for his brain cancer, due to the aggressive nature of the cancer and McCain’s advanced age, 81.  He would, as we now know, die the very next day.  However, Ms. Kelli Ward took McCain’s announcement on Friday as an attempt on McCain’s part to undermine her senatorial campaign!  His timing was inconvenient for her!  A staffer, apparently with Ward’s knowledge and consent, tweeted the following …

“I wonder if it were just a coincidence that Sen McCain released his statement on the kickoff day of Kelli Ward’s bus tour or if it was a plan to take media attention off her campaign. I’m not saying it was on purpose but it’s quite interesting.”

And Ward herself chimed in with …

“I think they wanted to have a particular narrative that they hope is negative to me.”

Yo, bitch … life does not revolve around you!!!  This man has been suffering from this devastating illness for more than a year, and you expected him to coordinate his death with you, so that it would not interfere with your campaign???  What rock did you crawl out from under???

I hope that Arizonans have a heart, a conscience, and respect for the man who has represented the State of Arizona in Congress since 1983 and will cast their votes anywhere but for Ms. Ward.  Her words are unconscionable and show a lack of empathy on a par with that of Donald Trump.

How can people be so unkind, so uncaring, so self-centered?  Stay tuned for the next installment …

  1. Dear Jill,

    I hope and pray that this Nellie Ward loses big time, especially in Arizona. Its citizens need to send a message that they want more candidates like Senator John McCain instead of the poor substitute, Nellie Ward.

    Hugs, Gronda

    • I doubt she has much of a chance, after what she said about McCain. McCain was quite popular in Arizona and right now people there aren’t likely to take too kindly to her comments. The other two running in that race are good ol’ Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who has been polling so low that I’m surprised the GOP even let him stay in the race, and Martha McSally. My opinion is that McSally is a shoo-in. Should start seeing some results soon … I’ve got it in a corner of my screen to keep an eye on. Your primary is tonight too!

      • Yes she is indicative of the disgrace, pure meanness and heartlessness of the republicans. It particularly concerns me because she is young and I fear the younger people are growing more self centered, unethical and less principled. They are the only hope for the nation and if they fail……

        • She got her comeuppance tonight … lost the election by … as of this writing … nearly 23%. Ol’ sheriff Joe Arpaio did even worse! Together, they handed the election to Martha McSally. 🙂 I am more positive about the younger generation … after Parkland, they really seemed to have their act together. My fear is that we are making it so hard for them to get a college education that we may be creating a generation that is not capable of being “the best and the brightest”. Hopefully that will turn around, but not under Trump & DeVos.

  2. Deplorable is the nicest word that comes to mind, many others are as vile as Ms. Kelli Ward! Arizona and the country lost the best and this is what remains?! She’ll be a marvelous addition to further promotion of Trump’s agenda, hopefully Arizona voters will not elect her. Thank-you, rant on!!

    • Yep … this is what remains. She is so like Donald Trump that it makes me turn green, and not with envy. My wish is that she not receive so much as a single vote, but you know she will receive some … I just hope that Arizonians remember this for the next ten weeks, for John McCain was quite popular in Arizona, and I cannot imagine any of them were too happy to hear of Ms. Ward’s words. Sigh. I’m tired. Can we just wake up now and Obama is still president?

  3. Good for you, Suze. Good for you Jill. Good for you, any Arizonan who refuses to vote for such a wonderful example of what Trumpolitics is all about. Love, yes she loves herself, and her voice. Compassion, yeah, she probably loves the passion of c….. No, I won’t go there, I cannot imagine any male wanting any part of that!
    Sorry, Jill, but you are right to go on a rant. I can hardly wait to read the second part of this post, though I doubt I truly want to read it, if it is worse than this half…

    This is how low the Republican Party has sunk to …. ‘Take a look at that face, folks, for that is the face of ugly. That is the face of evil. That is a face I hope never to see sitting in the U.S. Senate. Allow me to introduce Ms. Kelli Ward of Arizona, a candidate for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Jeff Flake.’

  5. I saw that report on her. I wish I hadn’t as I threw a book (Mice and Men, hardback…sigh) at the television. On a brighter note, I can now no longer watch reports such at that one until I replace a television set.
