Close Encounters of the McCain Kind

Long-time readers know that Kittywampus once came to a (rather tepid) defense of Cindy McCain. But that was only because her husband was acting like such a royal douche toward her. We do not harbor some secret affection for her.

And so here's a very funny (if uncharitable) spoof of her origins, courtesy of the Onion (via Broadsheet):


Cindy McCain Claims She's Just Like Any Other Female Human

For a while now I've thought Cindy McCain bears an odd resemblance to Rudy Guiliani. Maybe he comes from the same alien planet. I think the similarity is around their lips, which are probably just naturally thin but always strike me as tense and bitter.

More to the point, Cindy McCain conjures up Ghosts of Republican Wives Past. Her brittle, superannuated-Barbie facade reminds me a little too much of Nancy Reagan. I imagine the plasticky surface is a bipartisan occupational hazard of being a political wife. Same for the distortions caused by cosmetic surgery and Botox.

But the glassy stare? I have to wonder if that's nerve damage from hearing too much Republican propaganda over the years.

...well except for that hyper-alloy combat chassis and 5000 year power supply.

Heh. Harness that power supply and we could be done with "drill, baby, drill." That might be the best argument I've heard yet for giving McCain my vote.

(Just kidding!!!!!! as my five-year-old loves to screech.)

Thanks for stopping by, kvatch. Love that bulbous-eyes look of yours.
