McCain’s VP

posted by on September 2 at 13:21 PM

John McCain today on Sarah Palin…

America’s excited and they’re going to be even more excited once they see her tomorrow night.”

But will America ever be as excited about Palin as McCain clearly is?

Even the AP's calling McCain on his bullshit:

If he means excited like starving wolves are excited by the introduction of a wounded lamb, then I agree with McCain on this one.

it looked like mccain was reading over her shoulder. what's that about?

Please, dear God, please have McCain fall in love with her and hit on her publicly. In about a month.

Wasn't McCain complaining that the media was giving Obama too much attention. Now that they're giving him attention, it's not looking too good for him. Maybe he should whine and try the ageism card.

Do any of us feel sorry for him since the media started focusing their attention on him and exposing him for his faults? No.

Agh. When you can't see the video/picture/whatever it is in that big white space, and the mind is left to fill in the blank what the emphasized "excited"s point to (ew!), all I can think of is a leering McCain with a pants-tent. Ewww!

@3 - I see McCain looking at her butt and rubbing his wedding ring.

@4 - I wouldn't be surprised by that.

Nothing like a 30 minute phone call to make the Flip-Flop chief John McCain toss his ethics and judgment - what little remains - out the door ...

@7 you really think he's looking at her butt? it looks like the angle is all wrong to me. i think he's reading her prepared remarks, making sure she stays on track.

The only thing that could make America MORE excited tomorrow night would be seeing Gov. Palin compete in the swimsuit competition.

Man this election has everything....scandals, women voters pissed off, minorities, old men, POW shout-outs, values sold out, bloggers going insane, and hurricane season.

Throw in an earthquake and man, it's like a movie that writes itself. So I predict an earthquake in California in October, conveniently to suspend the VP debates.

liked Maher's slogan. . ."McCain and MILF"

Rick Santorum's "excited" too:

"I was scheduled to be here. I was a delegate. I was coming, and I was going to be supporting John McCain," he tells NPR's Robert Siegel. "But I do so with a little more lilt in my step" because of Palin.

Stupid, stupid GOP committee give John McCain airhead MILF for running mate, John McCain announce running mate on stupid TV box, look at hot MILF booty on camera, freak out, Horndog Hulk out, JOHN MCCAIN BECOME HORNDOG HULK!


And no, I don't feel like letting it go.

I thought he was staring at her boobs...

After all, Cindy doesn't have any.

This post is pretty juvenile. You can add sleazy musak to anything to make it funny. There's enough real stuff to talk about, why are you resorting to cheap shots?

I thought you, Dan, were the prince of only calling people out on their hypocrisy -- not just making personal attacks for the heck of it. Particularly attacks that have no basis in fact.

I wouldn't vote for a Republican if he/she held a gun to my head, but that's not because of where they may or may not be looking during a speech. Grow up.
