McCain: Hayworth Is A Nut!

Posted By on Wed, Feb 24, 2010 at 4:21 PM



Sen. John McCain suggests J.D. Hayworth is a nutbag for siding with the likes of Orly Taitz of the birther conspiracy movement in a new campaign ad.

Sam Stone of Huffington Post notes:


Hayworth has himself meddled in the birther movement, raising questions about Obama's birth certificate and justifying them by insisting that the country is in an "age of identity theft." But it is not something that he champions prominently — in fact, he's practically begged those who have interviewed him recently to move on from the issue.

McCain isn't willing to cut him any slack, clearly sensing that even the conservative base in his state is troubled by the conspiracy theory crowd. And yet, it could be a risky gamble. On Wednesday, nearly half the Arizona state House approved a measure that would require presidential candidates who want to appear on the ballot in Arizona to show their birth certificate to state officials before running.
