Go, Go, Gidget

This is just absurd:

John McCain told a crowd at a fundraiser that his wife is on her way to the embattled nation of Georgia, an announcement coming just hours before Barack Obama’s wife makes a high-profile speech at the Democratic National Convention.

McCain told a crowd that wife, Cindy, was to accompany him on his visit to California and he apologized for her absence.

“Cindy is not here today and I’m sorry she’s not,” said McCain. “She’s on her way to the little country of Georgia.”

I guess she is planning on a run for President in eight years should her hubby win. I hope she gets videotape of the snipers on the tarmac. On the other hand, if she does get shot at by snipers a la the Tuzla Tigress, she will then have more combat experience than the entire staffs of the NRO and the Weekly Standard.

In all seriousness, why is she going to Georgia? Why is McCain not being openly ridiculed for this?

    Ridicule would seem kind of inadequate for something like this. How to adequately express disgust? I suppose spitting on him as he walks by would be going too far?

    Are we sure that she’s still not doing community service and just got mixed up where she’s suppose to go? Where I volunteer in Roswell, GA, we get several community service volunteers. Of course she could be auditioning for Condi’s job.

    I know you turned in your R-card, but sweet Jesus, McCain made the rationale clear…

    “Georgia was one of the first Christian nations,” McCain said. “Georgia, back in the Third Century, the king of Georgia converted to Christianity. You see churches there that date back to the Fourth and Fifth Century.”

    McCain said it is important to support Georgia because it is a democracy, but also because key oil pipelines run through the country.

    God sacrificed the dinosaurs 6,000 years ago to create oil for the benefit of today’s Christians. Georgia recognized God’s plan early on being one of the first to convert. While not blessed with dinosaurs to make the gooey stuff, Georgia created tubes for its transport. It’s a series of tubes. And it was good.

    The blonde beer heiress, Cindy, is simply honoring that divine plan as any good Christian wife would for her kept husband. It’s a pilgrimage. Duh.

    This may be more of a medical issue/question but… I’ve noticed that many republican politicians’ wives have certain anti-gravity characteristics. Somehow they retain the cheer leader perkiness they had in their youth. Certainly, Ms. McCain exemplifies this but also Mrs. Pawlenty. Perhaps Ms. McCain was going to Georgia to explain how they’ve discovered anti-gravity and how Georgia can use it to their advantage against Russia.
    Clearly, Democrats don’t have access to the anti-gravity device because they seem to age like the rest of women.

    I do, all of the time. Why? Because it is cheap entertainment (the best!) and I love to watch insanity, stupidity and endless orgasmic circle-jerking inaction. Those people are like a non-stop train wreck of screaming batshit insanity that is going nowhere, and I am an online rubbernecker who is enjoying the view.

    Some people embrace their stupidity and selfishness because it is all they have left, but these people swim, bathe and drink in this shitty koolaid in like their lives depend on it.

    I hope you are enjoying the train wreck as much as I am!

    Two reasons: (1) weaker laws about prescription medicines and (2) great opportunities for buying real estate.

    McPOW entered her in the Miss All-Nude Geogia Contest. He figures she’ll be the first woman ever to be the reigning Miss All-Nude Georgia and American First Lady at the same time.

    The guy’s got perfect pitch when it comes to politics. I heard he got that from being a POW.

    […] Why? Because the voters have no control over them. You can’t remove them from the artifical “office” of First Lady (at term which does not appear anywhere in the constitution) nor can you control their ascension to such an “office.” What if the president gets a divorce while in office? Must he or she leave? No. It is not a position in our government, which is why I will always maintain that Hillary Clinton’s eight years of “experience” as First Lady does not count for diddly squat. Similarly, I see that Cindy McCain is heading to Georgia. Why? She is a private citizen and not running for any office. (John Cole is spot on to call this “absurd.”) I’m sure Chelsea Clinton had a grand time during her eight years in the White House, but I don’t want our next president nominating her for the Supreme Court. Does Michelle Obama have anti-American feelings? Was Cindy McCain involved in shady business deals? I don’t care. I’m not electing either one of them. […]
