McCain looks like The Smiler from Transmet.

Those are awesome. Though McCain should have a little Droopy Dog rendering of Lieberman at his heels.

"McCaine's" ???? Oh, Eli.

You missed the arrest of Radovan Karadzic. A great day for international justice, a nightmare for aficionados of Crazy Hair. Here's hoping he dies in prison like his buddy Milosevic. Here's hoping he suffers for a decade first.

We won't support ball-less NO-Bama and will re-defeat him in November!!!

Comic-book McCain's face looks like a landslide.
Not, you know, that I'm prejudiced against people with landslide-shaped faces or anything.

"Being human and tripping over your tongue occasionally doesn't mean a thing," a top McCain official said.

It also occasionally means you're really, really old.

CLARIFICATION: When Obama says he plans to remove ALL U.S. combat troops out of Iraq by 2010, what he MEANS is that he is committed to reducing the number of US troops in Iraq from 150,000 to 100,000 or so. See linked article for more info...

Holy shit. That Joker fuckup CNN made the other day is starting to look accurate with that cover.

The thing about the McCain image, he's definitely made to look more trim and healthy than I've ever seen him but he also looks like a fucking demon from hell about to chow down on some tasty baby skin!

Has anyone actually ever seen McCain up close and personal on an HDTV set at 1080p on a 50 inch set?

He looks way old - older than the makeup guys make you think - and what is that growth on half his face?

Are we sure he's not a mutant?

You're not exactly peaches and cream yourself, Will.

What a farce. The candidates should be given equal page space, but look how much more space McCain is taking up. He has to be covering at least 13% more of the page than Obama gets. This is a mockery of objective reporting, and just goes to show that the media and Big Comics have been on John McCain's side this whole time.

Yeah, but I didn't fight in the Crimean War like McCain did.
