McCain is Mean

According to the forthcoming book 'The Real McCain' by Cliff Schecter, while out on the campaign trail, good ol' Johnny McCain called his wife Cindy a (C)ute and (U)nusually (N)aive (T)art. But you know...without using the word Tart.

I'd pay 5 bucks for audio of this one, but unfortunately its not available, so this little clip on the story will have to suffice - it includes the full quote. But, don't worry you Maverick McCain fans out there, at least this stays in line with his mantra...you know, he rides the 'straight talk express' and...well, it doesn't get much straighter than this outburst. ha.


Trollop: (Noun)
1. an immoral or promiscuous woman, esp. a prostitute.
2. an untidy or slovenly woman; slattern
(Dictionary.com)

Fine, yes, this was a Senatorial campaign years ago, but still, its an awesomely funny anecdote.

Run to Vote 2008 said...

Over the past years, Americans have gained an apathetic view when it comes to voting. Only between 50 and 55% voted in the 2004 election. A lot of Americans aren't even registered to vote, which is why 15 students and 2 teachers will be traveling through all 48 continental states using two RVs as transportation. For every person that signs up to vote or pledges to vote, someone from the team will run a quarter mile. Run to Vote will stop somewhere in each state to register people to vote and give them information on the presidential candidates [non-partisan]. We will start in our home state of North Carolina and end in Washington, D.C. approximately two months later. Run to Vote plans to make an impact. We want to reach out and raise awareness on the importance of voting. As teenagers, this will be our only opportunity to influence the 2008 election, which could prove to be one of the most important of our lifetime. Between immigration, the war in Iraq, health care, the economy, gay marriages, and many more controversial issues, the 2008 election will be a crucial turning point in the history of our country. What better way of making an impact than registering hundreds of people to vote so that they, too, can be a part of this significant moment? But we need support—if anyone would be willing to give us advice or support, please visit our website www.runtovote.com. Thanks!

How refreshing "run to vote"...especially after the McCain spot from Stanton....you are doing a great service and staying in shape to boot....more Americans should be running a few miles with all the flab I see out there everyday...

Thank you, I've been busy (no excuse)... So much silliness to comment on, so little time in the day ;)

This certainly makes McCain look like a fucking SOB.
