Snooki Makes A Friend!

And that friend is that hilarious senator, John McCain.  Ain’t no party like the GOP, Snooki, you just remember that.

In a Jersey Shore sneak peek for the second season, Snooki can be seen using spray-on tan, then making the comment

“I don’t go tanning-tanning anymore because Obama put a 10 percent tax on tanning, and I feel like he did that intentionally for us. McCain would never put a 10 percent tax on tanning because he’s pale and he would probably want to be tan.”

McCain then responded to this on his Twitter:

@Sn00ki u r right, I would never tax your tanning bed! Pres Obama’s tax/spend policy is quite The Situation. but I do rec wearing sunscreen!

I didn’t vote for McCain and I never would because I’m not crazy, but the bit about The Situation?  So good.  Keep up the jokes, John McCain, but try to stay out of the government please.

Oh Hells Yes: Cindy McCain Poses in Support of Gay Marriage

This is one Cindy McCain — wife of former Presidential candidate John McCain — posing for the NOH8 campaign, a part of the fight for marriage equality in this country. Cindy joins her daughter, Meghan, who has long been a vocal supporter of gay marriage.

John McCain’s office said in a statement that the Arizona senator respects the views of members of his family but remains opposed to gay marriage. “Sen. McCain believes the sanctity of marriage is only defined as between one man and one woman,” the statement said.

Ummmm, right. Senator McCain’s political career — financially supported by fearful hate-mongerers — is opposed to gay marriage. I assure you the man himself is not.

It’s fantastic to see high-profile Republicans speaking out in favor of gay marriage. And I’ll bet good money that once McCain retires from politics, he’ll come out in favor of gay marriage as well. Because, ya know, hating people for who they love shouldn’t be a part of government.

Quotables

news-1-meghan-mccain-shades

“I am not only turned off by people who voted for Barack Obama, but I am also turned off by people that voted for my dad—or more so, obsessive supporters of my dad. Recently, over dinner, a guy started explaining his reasons for supporting President Obama during the election (I didn’t ask, I think the poor guy felt guilty) and I immediately found any attraction I had previously had dissipate. But same thing happens if a guy starts talking about all the reasons why my father should be president. I have the ultimate Catch-22 in post-election dating. So where does that leave me, and who exactly am I attracted to? Let’s just say I’m spending a lot of time writing and even more time with my girlfriends.”

The beautiful, brave and brilliant Miz Meghan McCain, in an interesting piece for The Daily Beast about how her father’s career impacts her dating life.
