John McTaint Penning His MemWahhhhhs


“The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and Other Appreciations” is scheduled to come out in April, Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press on Friday. The publisher quietly signed up the book in February, without any formal announcement. In July, McCain disclosed he had been diagnosed with brain cancer and last month he said the prognosis was “very poor.”

“This memoir will be about what matters most to him, and I hope it will be regarded as the work of an American hero,” said Jonathan Karp, president and publisher of Simon & Schuster’s flagship imprint.

The book is expected to begin in 2008, when the Arizona Republican lost to Barack Obama in the presidential election, and will include his “no-holds-barred opinions” on last year’s campaign and on current events in Washington. McCain has been a sharp critic of President Donald Trump, a fellow Republican, and was a key opponent last summer of GOP efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. Earlier this week, McCain denounced “half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems,” remarks widely taken as criticism of Trump and such allies as former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.

“Candid, pragmatic, and always fascinating, John McCain holds nothing back in his latest memoir,” according to the publisher.

The memoir already has a notable change: The original title was “It’s Always Darkest Before It’s Totally Black,” an expression McCain likes to cite.


For Karp, “The Restless Wave” is a poignant, painful reminder of a previous book he edited: “True Compass,” by McCain’s good friend Sen. Edward M. Kennedy. As with the McCain book, Karp signed up Kennedy’s memoir before he was diagnosed with brain cancer. Kennedy died in August 2009, just weeks before “True Compass” was published.

“Both men represent the best of leadership,” Karp said. “Both men have been giants of the Senate who demonstrated an ability to work across the aisle in a truly admirable way.”


We can only hope that McCain, like his GREAT FRIEND, Ted Kennedy, won’t make it to see this book published.

McCain, sucking air through his plaque covered urine colored teeth, likes to pontificate about honor and dignity and heroism, yet, one of his best friends was Ted Kennedy.

Drop dead, jerk.

  1. It appears that the only time McCane exhibited reason was when he was tied up and beaten.
    “Quietly into the sunset” for him is figuring out ways to screw with his captors.

  2. I haven’t heard anything about problems McLame has “fixed”, but there’s a whole slew of them he had a hand in creating.
    A book to take up the space next to “What happened” and “Dreams of my father” on the dollar store shelf.

  3. “..and I hope it will be regarded as the work of an American hero,” said Jonathan Karp, president and publisher of Simon & Schuster’s flagship imprint.”

    Hope away, there, Jonathan Karp. (He wouldn’t have mentioned his “hope” if he didn’t think it will not be regarded so.)

  4. He spent a great amount of his time and position in Washington obstructing any inquiries into his past military service. The same for his friend John F. Kerry. His book will be as big a farce as his entire life. Finally this pigs days are drawing to an end and none too soon.

  5. How does someone who has never held a significant job outside of gov’t manage to amass some $36MM dollars? His wife’s inheritance aside, this is what McCain claims as his own assets. He and his wife have a prenuptial agreement and much of her inherited wealth is held in trust by her children.

    What is going on with wealthy pols who create “institutes”? Institutes of what? It seems like McCain is following the Clinton blueprint in this regard.

    Also, when will we ever see the path to and from McCain of the Trump Russian dossier. He has denied giving it to Buzzfeed, but why was he ever involved in the chain in the first place? Was he working with the Clinton machine on taking down Trump? Why was he chosen to give the info to the FBI (Comey)?

  6. I just dismissed The Daily Caller recently as a so-so purveyor of news (so I am feeling a little sheepish):

    Is this John McCain’s link to U-One?

    “In addition, the institute has taken at least $100,000 from a Moroccan state-run company tied to repeated charges of worker abuse and exploitation. The McCain group has also accepted at least $100,000 from the Pivotal Foundation, which was created by Francis Najafi who owns the Pivotal Group, a private equity and real estate firm.

    The Pivotal Foundation has in the last three years given $205,000 to the National Iranian-American Council (NIAC), which has been a vocal advocate for the Iranian nuclear deal the Obama administration negotiated.


    NIAC President Trita Parsi has long been an advocate for Iran, including demanding in May 2017 that President Donald Trump and officials in his administration “cease questioning the integrity of a (nuclear) deal.””

    You’ll want to read the rest:

  7. Perfect time to bring out ALL the treason, corruption, and all the proof of what a vile creature this rat is. And before this creep dies. May he go into the sunset completely exposed and disgraced.

  8. The book will start in the time period of 2008.
    So no explanation or defense for your Vietnam treason, the Forestall, Keating 5 Saving and Loan corruption scandal or the insider deals?

    Sorry John, There is nothing admirable about deceit, deception, dishonesty, obstruction, betrayal, vengeance, supporting islamic terrorists, extortion, adultery and corruption.

  9. Well, you have to give McStain credit, he isn’t going quietly into the night.
    He is making sure everybody remembers him to be one of the biggest, most painful, weeping carbuncles ever festering on America’s ass.
    Rage on you diminutive loser.

  10. Cato: I’m so disappointed. Nothing about his life at the Naval Academy, his pilot training, his several crashes, the USS Forrestal, the Hanoi Hilton? Nothing? WTF is he going to write about? His trip across the aisle?

  11. Excerpt:
    “So I got on the bottom, and Lindsey got on top. Barry was squirming between us like the little page-boys we used to lure into the private conference chamber … he kept fluttering his eyelids – he and Lindsey tried to outdo each other in coquettishness … which really brought out the man in me! And believe me – BELIEVE ME – there was a lot of man in me!”

    izlamo delenda est …

  12. Don’t know anything about his father and grandfather, but I suspect they came from a generation that if they were alive, would be truly, deeply ashamed of their progeny.

    I don’t know if I could bear being related to such a raisin-sack as McCain.

  13. “This memoir will be about what matters most to him, and I hope it will be regarded as the work of an American hero,” said Jonathan Karp, president and publisher of Simon & Schuster’s flagship imprint.

    Jonathan 💩

  14. Dear Juan McShame,
    “The diagnosis is not good.” We already know about your conservative principals! How about the cancer? And I’m NOT referring the malignancy that is your multiple terms in the senate either.
    More blather from a drooling demented traitorous douche bag, only in written form. I wonder if one of his Viet Cong handlers is ghost writing it for him.

  15. I found an excerpt!

  16. A book full of lies and delusions of grangeur. The true story – a dishonorable twit leaves a McStain on the legacy of honorable men he betrayed.
