i have no love for politicians (believe me!) but i've learned even at the small-town level they seem to be closely tied to law enforcement. law enforcement talks with Fire & Rescue folks. people in power probably have connections to all sorts of other folks who hear the scuttlebutt and are in-the-know. McCain has nothing gain by tossing out false allegations against anyone, of course I could be wrong, but i doubt anyone is going to build a wall around Arizona because of this statement.
i think someone of his experience would well know not to casually toss around statements. if i had eyes & ears on me most of the time i'd watch my words.
Nothing more than another right wing attempt to stir up racial tensions in the political arena. By the way, John McCain is notorious for "casually tossing around statements" that he is later forced to retract or suddenly reverse his opinion on. (like his support of cap & trade in 2008 or even whether or not he's a "Maverick") It's something that I believe he perfected during his time spent as a POW. He learned to say whatever it is that he thinks his audience wants to hear and whatever he thinks will garner him support. McCain is an absolute joke but seeing how Arizona keeps on electing him to office, they deserve no better.
