Cindy McCain is a Genius

posted by on September 17 at 9:08 AM


Republican presidential candidate John McCain’s wife Cindy McCain blasted The View on Saturday for attacking her and her husband in an interview last Friday…”I don’t know if any of you saw The View yesterday, they picked our bones clean,” Cindy said at Saturday’s 119th annual Oakland County Republican Party’s Lincoln Day Dinner, ABC News reports.

First, it’s cute that Cindy McCain thinks there’s anything left on her bones that might tempt any sort of picking.

Second, perhaps the wife of a zillion-year-old man should avoid corpse-and-vulture metaphors.

Third, poor fucking baby.

If you haven’t seen The View’s alleged feasting on the bones of the McCains, go here. It’s quite wonderful (and so far from an attack it suggests Cindy McCain is a paranoid schizophrenic).

Beautiful post.

The only way I'll ever watch a clip from The View is if it's raw footage of all of them being murdered.

I think of McCain as old but I don't see him as a bunch of bones. He's not dead yet, Cindy. Geeze.

I don't have the brains to handle Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg, but you should elect me to deal with Vladmir Putin, Hu Jintao, and (of course) the global war on terror.

I love it... this "the mean media was mean to us" thing might hold water with the average American if it was anyone other than The View. Are you kidding me? Because Elizabeth Hasselback and Sherri Shepherd have such a reputation for being hardasses with their guests.

Next up, flattering swimsuits for every body type!

Cindy is a marvelous old fossil of entitlement. More posts about her, please.

Does anyone remember watching V? There's something a little reptilian about her...

She's not a paranoid schizophrenic. She's rich, powerful and hyper-entitled. The symptoms of paranoid schizophrenia can often be treated with medication.

Whereas I don't think the meds are helping her symptoms at all.

I highly recommend the piece on her in the recent New Yorker...she is not a happy lady and the real story behind her "little" drug problem is pretty gruesome.

i'd have to agree with her a bit: the view ladies had their knives out.

why couldn't i find an heiress 15 years my junior?

@ #10, it's about fucking time someone did. That lying sack of bones deserved it.

Maybe he would have been stronger answering their questions from an on-stage bamboo cage?

They might help - if only she'd stop taking so MANY of them all at once.

Somebody get her pills. The poor old thing needs one.

Posted by jeffg166 | September 17, 2008 9:54 AM

Of course drug-addled Cindy is a loon, but, yes, how dare ANYONE question the McCains? Don't we know they're above all that?

And, as Cheney has told us for years, why would this be a problem if they have nothing to hide?

Posted by whatevernevermind | September 17, 2008 10:14 AM

I'm appalled by the fact that the toughest questions the McCains have had to field are coming from THE FUCKING VIEW! Shouldn't everyone be requiring them to be consistent and truthful, like say the mainstream media?

I wouldn't be happy married to John McCain either. He's practically a walking corpse, he allegedly cheats on her regularly (and I don't want to think about the type of woman who would have an affair with him), and he allegedly verbally abuses her. What a fucking prize.

She's still relatively young and attractive, and ridiculously wealthy.

@17 - for you and your GF then - Enjoy!

Posted by dre | September 17, 2008 11:04 AM

Wow, I hadn't seen a picture of her up close before. Very frightening! No wonder she needs $300,000 outfits to try and make her look good.

I couldn't get past Baba Wawa's intro. I'll just have to take it on faith that the rest of the clip was better.
