Mike Murphy, a former aide to the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ), said a Joe Biden win in Arizona was revenge from beyond the grave.
Inappropriate comments on MSNBC
Murphy, a GOP strategist, spoke on MSNBC and made the remarks before the AP called the state to Biden.
"I think if we somehow handle this, a lot of Democrats were looking for a quick knockout in the Sun Belt where Biden would take away a red state, Florida in particular, and it didn't happen," argued Murphy, noting that Florida and Miami Dade was a shock loss for Biden.
"So the bad news for Biden and for Democratic Psychology is that tonight's win in Florida, Georgia or North Carolina is very unlikely. They're playing on red turf," he continued, adding, "There's a Red State in the sun belt that I believe will move to Joe Biden in Arizona. "
"It could be Senator John McCain's revenge," Murphy said funky, unaware of the inappropriateness of his comments.

Media class participates in Revenge Narrative
Other social media users agreed with the idea that a Biden win in Arizona was McCain's revenge, including CNN's Ana Navarro.
Joe Biden is the first Democrat to win Arizona in 24 years. I would like to see John McCain get the last laugh.

Arizona, possibly the state diverting elections from Trump to Biden, would be John McCain's ultimate revenge

John McCain's ghost comes back in vengeance.
Arizona turns blue.

Look: Trump could lose this election because of his irrational resentment against John McCain. Would be a pretty dramatic upswing.

Of course, the itchy media class made this dramatic shift after behaving towards McCain in the 2008 presidential race.
The New York Times alleged the McCain campaign sparked "racist attacks" against then Senator Barack Obama and alleged the GOP camp had races into the discussion in a number of headlines.
The late Democratic Rep, John Lewis, went so far as to compare McCain and Sarah Palin to segregationist George Wallace, saying they "sow the seeds of hatred and division" and "play with fire".

McCain Family also supports Biden
Never Trump Democrats, the media class and Republicans are so ready to use the life of John McCain as their own political weapon and hit President Trump over the head with it.
Even the McCain family boarded the Biden train themselves. His widow Cindy called him a "good and honest man" and joined his advisory board for their transition team. His co-host Meghan, "The View", also supported Biden in this election.
When will the rattling classes learn that it is simply inappropriate to use the legacy of the dead as political footballs? Never, it seems.
