J.D. Hayworth is running against Sen. John McCain in Arizona….

Former congressman and radio talk show host J.D. Hayworth formally announced today that he will take on Arizona Sen. John McCain in the state’s Republican primary — handing the 2008 presidential nominee what could be his toughest re-election challenge in years.

Hayworth is one of several insurgent GOP candidates running against established figures across the country. Similar races are shaping up in Florida and Kentucky, for instance. To read more about the Arizona race, check out this story that appeared in today’s USA TODAY.

Hayworth began his campaign with a rally in Phoenix today and has a three-day statewide tour scheduled, according to the Associated Press. Also today, Chris Simcox, co-founder of an anti-illegal immigrant group, has dropped out of the race and will endorse Hayworth, Politico reports here.

McCain told USA TODAY over the weekend that he takes every race seriously and that he will work hard for support. “I know of no other way to campaign,” he said.

That effort continues with a busy schedule in his home state this week. Today he received the endorsements of 31 Arizona mayors at an event in Phoenix. McCain is “leading the fight to get our economy moving again by getting government out of the way of our dynamic private sector,” Tempe Mayor Hugh Hallman said in a statement.

The primary is set for Aug. 24.

“By the People: The Election of Barack Obama”……the HBO Special….

I just watched the HBO special “By the People: The Election of Barack Obama”……it’s two hours of boring, but interesting cinema video…while the story is so well known..it is interesting to see the people, their faces, their ups mostly here and knowing their downs….for me….it was good to see the man as he really was ( I was for Clinton during the primaries)…the stuttering, the ‘cool’, the thought process and the warmth that he brought to the people he touched along the way….

But the more profound thing is to watch the ‘hope’ for an idea that he brought out in people…a feeling…a rising up from everyday people who are final arbitrators of the grand election process…..

Watching Axelrod walk around when the process started…traveling around the country…..taking doubts and moving forward…..with the informality of it all….to the night they won, walking up the stairs to congratulate his next president ,and  getting greeted by security guards who asked about the “next time’ to the Secret Service agents that smiled and offered their congratulations……

It was good to see…because in the end Obama’s troops where better, they wanted it more, they where more in touch with ‘that’ feeling that came to be rallying cry for change……..

And  he was able to connect with the people in a way Hillary was only able to do after the contests in Ohio and Texas, when it was too late……

Megan McCain has breasts…what’s wrong with that?

I’m a little late to this story but, apparently the senator (John McCain) from Arizona’s daughter, Megan McCain,  posted up on twitter a week ago a picture in which she was holding a book in her hand and was wearing a dancskin type top….it appears that that the young lady is er, endowed…something women spend a whole lot of money trying to be these days….of course republican women can’t do that , especially daughters of one’s that had their father run for president…….

Don’t people have more important things to gripe about?
