"And you know, I went around with John McCain because it was the lesser of two evils, to be quite frank. You know, I'm not afraid to say that," said Wurzelbacher, discussing his experience in 2008. "John McCain exactly doesn't represent true conservatism. He does represent the Republicans, but not true conservatism."
Hannity asked Wurzelbacher whether he would support McCain's reelection. "Absolutely not. I mean that's what the Tea Party movement is against. You know, John McCain is of Washington. He's a career politician. He's had plenty and ample opportunities to fix things and get things done, and yet here we are," said Wurzelbacher. "I mean, he's just the face of what's going on in Washington. And I'm not necessarily trying to pick on John McCain. I mean, we need to get rid of most of those guys that are in there that are career politicians -- your Barbara Boxers, your Nancy Pelosis."
