Is McCain insane?

JeffC's picture

Or is his staff just totally incompetent?

What are they thinking about booking him to speak at the biker festival in Sturgis, S.D.? His speech was pitiful and almost incoherent and then he invites his wife out and starts talking about how she should enter the biker’s “Miss Buffalo Chip” beauty contest???

McCain: “I was looking at the Sturgis schedule and noticed that you have a beauty pageant and so I encouraged Cindy to compete. I told her with a little luck she could be the only woman ever to serve as both the first lady and Miss Buffalo Chip.” With her standing right there beside him cringing? Does McCain or anybody else on his staff know what a buffalo chip is?

Did anybody bother to tell McCain that the biker beauty contest is a raunchy, topless and g-string affair complete with simulated sex acts?

And everything he said came from his prepared remarks that he was reading!

And who on earth picked the Enrico Fermi Two nuclear plant to highlight his support for building new reactors? Did they know that it has previously been closed down for catastrophic equipment failure and that a couple of years ago it had to go through a shutdown because of leaking radiation which caused all the nearby schools to be evacuated and closed? Maybe they should have gone to Enrico Fermi One. Has anyone ever read, “We Almost Lost Detroit” about its partial meltdown in 1966 leading to its shutdown? Or the fire there a couple of months ago from stored liquid sodium?

She looks hot to me, but again, you have to consider my age. I think she is the one who is insisting in getting into the sassy beauty pageant. She must be eager to parade in her Victoria'a Secret wardrobe and get some extra votes for lame, old pops Mc Cain!

Making you think twice......

Details..details. Hey, some of your liberal brethren are giving mad props to Paris Hilton for her courageous, daring and bold video the other day, so maybe they appreciate a woman who doesn't mind being easy and sleazy Smiling Insiders say Jenna Jameson is being "vetted" right now as a VP possibility!

McCain has a really lacking campaign staff that doesn't seem to ever notice the obvious and has a very hard time coming up with anything scripted that comes across well. Check that, it makes McCain look BAD. While he can be a loose cannon at times, McCain is better shooting from the hip than his campaign staff's scripting. Besides, McCain can say all kinds of goofy stuff and the MSM doesn't really give him too hard of a time about it because the seniors would get mad and tell the MSM to get off their lawns and send them to bed without supper Smiling

I'm so old I had to Google Jenna Jameson. I'm more of the Sally Field type but I worry about her taking too much Boniva. Seems like she takes it every few days instead of once a month.

At least you didn't dis Lindsay Lohan. I'm waiting for her to weigh in on the Israel / Palestine situation before I take a position.

John McCain (certainly in jest but scripted) encourages his wife Cindy to enter a topless, bottomless, pickle/banana eating contest and maybe be Miss Buffalo Chip of 2008.

Can you imagine how the press and the women's lobby would attack Barack Obamna if he had said such thing about Michelle Obama?

But no. The press, including the MSM, takes the view that it was just John being John. Ho hum.

The MSM has reported endlessly Obama's past.

But the MSM is afraid to talk about Cindy McCain's drug addiction and near arrest. Or the fact that she had an affair with John McCain while he was still married to his first wife.

If Michelle Obama had done the things Cindy McCain has done, the press would crucify her.

The MSM doesn't talk about the fact that McCain graduated fifth from the bottom of his graduating class at the USNA.

If Obama had graduated near the bottom of his class in Law School at Harvard, the press would report on this endlessly.

But it is common knowledge that the press favors Obama. Poppycock!!

" was just John being John."

You mean, him being a senile old man. Maybe that is truly why he gets a pass from the MSM.

Yes, just John being John.

It is McCain's Wife, and he can say most anything he wants about her in my humble opinion. Not all of the entrants into the contest get topless, I know that for a fact. I've had friends who have seen it.

"...he can say most anything he wants about her..."

Like when he called her the C-word?

Submitted by lion on Wed, 08/06/2008 - 6:42pm.

John McCain can say whatever he wants about his wife, but the kind of moment he had in Sturgis shows that he is just a foolish old man. Not the kind of judgment I want in a President.

Perhaps not all Miss Buffalo Chip contestants have to be topless, but I strongly suspect the winner must.

One Candidate is fairly liberal, the other candidate may be the most liberal person we've ever had running for POTUS from a major party.

I think most folks' problem with this story are two fold:

1. Obama is skewered by the right and constantly covered by the media for words and deeds people he knows or people who he worked with or people who were his pastor have said. When Barack actually says something (bitter people clinging to the gun issue or God issues) there is a thunderous rolling of criticism from the usual suspects explaining how out of touch the young senator is.

John McCain calls his wife the "c" word and the media wash away the fingerprints. The right does not even acknowledge there ever was a crime scene.

John twists facts, throws curse words, or suggests our future first lady enter a contest named for feces; a contest featuring banana swallowing contests, and there is................ silence from the right. Amazingly some of my conservative friends on these blogs see no problem with that behavior from their potential future president. Amazing!

When I couple that with the jokes about killing Iranians with cigarettes and "bomb bomb bomb bomb bomb Iran," I just don't see a person I want in the White House. As for the "most liberal" comment toward Barack: Is that a BAD thing? And is it even true with his support of the second amendment in DC or FISA legislation. Just food for thought.

Even though I have no great admiration for Cindy McCain, nothing she has said or done can compare to the angry,unpatriotic (never been proud of this country) Michele. To me, there isn't much worse than believing that!

Do you have any idea just how many millions the Pauli girl just got from a European company who bought Bud? She owns a ton of it!

We all will get free Bud upon inauguration.

suppose nuclear power is better than more coal plants. However, aren't there even better solutions in the alternative energy spectrum? I think it is important for us, as consumers, to support 'green' business with our dollars, in the energy sector and elsewhere. For example, stops your postal junk mail and benefits the environment.

The Germany trip was a perfectly legitimate campaign stop even if it did irritate those people who hated seeing Europeans waving US flags in support of an American politician instead of burning them like they do when Republican politicians visit.

Besides, after the successful Iraq trip, and a quick stop in Bethlehem to visit his birth place, it was right on the way home. Why not stop?

That the US is it's Ally.

Are you saying we should worry more about the European's feelings than our own US Citizens?

You posted a silly video with silly comments, I simply replied with my own silly comment.

You saw my tongue in cheek comment about Bethlehem so I think we’re actually on the same page about silly but I think this is a very serious mistake for McCain’s campaign on a serious level.

I’m my opinion, and that’s all it is, the campaign is a referendum on Obama. He’s new, he doesn’t have much of a track record, he doesn’t look like those other Presidents on the dollar bills, etc. etc., while everybody knows who McCain is; or thinks they do. If he keeps this up, trivializing the race with Cindy in a questionable beauty pageant, Paris Hilton, tire gauges, and so on, it’s going to give the Obama people the opportunity to recast the race as a question about McCain. Take the focus off the “unknown factor” about Obama and it seems to me that’s a losing strategy for McCain. McCain’s people have tried to do everything but talk about issues. That may work in August but it’s not going to fly in October. I suspect the Obama people are storing this stuff up for ads in October where they will be able to heavily outspend McCain.

They may be right but it’s a risky strategy and I don’t think a very good one.

Anyone running against the current administration's policies has an advantage in the November election. I admire those who consider themselves Bush loyalists. The Bush policy is a difficult position to defend with the economy, war, global warming, energy, etc. as the issues of the day. McCain's people are using distractions in order to divert attention from the issues. At least this week, both candidates discussed the issues. . . but I wish McCain would improve his delivery!
