John McCain Buried In Pile Of Angry ‘View’ Hosts

  lies and lying trash

Everything he says is garbage.What is the world coming to when the ladies on The View ask John McCain the toughest questions he’s gotten in weeks? And yet even these hardened journalists don’t follow up on one of his most infuriating talking points of this whole infuriating campaign, which is that he had to start running ads that were complete utter laughable bullshit lies because Obama didn’t want to debate him as often as McCain would have liked. This is akin to saying, “I was forced to smother your house in a truckload of diarrhea because you wouldn’t answer my phone calls.” Anyhow, here he is, squirming despicably. [Huffington Post]

    So, basically, they asked McCain if he really DID approve those ads with the lies in them and he half heartedly said they weren’t lies than changed the subject.

    This is a man who would do anything to get elected.

  2. Special Agent Jack Mehoff

    I gotta give it to WALNUTS! on this one. I can barely stay in the same room with these girls on the teevee. I don’t know how he did it in real life.

  3. superfecta

    I hope he slunk off with the stupid blonde Republican one at the end. She’d make a fine replacement for his current wife who is getting a little long in the tooth.

  4. ColdCupofHope

    At least he finally admitted that banning slavery was a good idea. Totally cleared the air on that one! Also, if you saw it, poor Hasselbeck had to play Lieberman during the whole thing, constantly helping Grampa with his answers. Finally–change that I can believe in… or at least, masturbate to.

  5. Noodle Salad

    He was confused because all the womins are supposed to like him now.

    Should have used a well-timed gorilla joke to ease the tension.

  6. madirishman

    If Walnuts were a REAL Navy man, he would have smacked these uppity bitches and told them to mind their places–especially Joy Behar, who has the NERVE to live with a man outside of marriage (slut!). Then he should have told them to go moose-hunting with Caribou Barbie and bring home dinner for their menfolk and their chilluns. And why isn’t Elizabeth Hasselbeck at home squeezin’ out more babies, instead of taking up space on this godless, liberal Communist TV show?

    If Walnuts wants to get elected, he better start cracking the whip more. Look at how he put Hockey Mom in her place–BEHIND him! That’s change we can believe in–back to the 1950′s!

  7. BrutallyHonestBabes

    Wait, you didn’t post the part where Elisabeth Hasselbeck recited the Pledge of Allegiance whilst jerking him off.

  8. Gopherit v2.0

    The wymmynz handed him his ass. After living as Cindy’s kept houseboy, you’d think he’d be used to it.

  9. ZippyD

    Of course he’s lying bitches! What choice does the dude have?

    McCain swore his troth to the dreamy mocha one, only to be scorned! Well now McCain sez fuck his luscious cappuccino ass! He’ll MAKE Obama love him! He WILL travel with him, and sit with him, and eat with him, and have quiet, special long walks, and cuddly talks with him. He WILL! If he has to go to Obama’s house and find a bunneh, dammit!

  10. Monsieur Grumpe

    That would have been more satisfying if they actually started hitting McCain with something. You know, more Jerry Springer like.

  11. memzilla

    Stupid liberal reformist SCOTUS.

    Back to strict interpretation of the Constitution, I say!

    Vote for McCain and support the original Dred Scott decision!

    I’m sure Caribou Barbie approves.

  12. shortsshortsshorts

    Just a thought, but I always thought the View was kindove the Republican response to Ellen (gay) and Oprah (black). Therefore this interview did not happen. It is actually a red herring placed by the devil to make you think the View is a watchable program, and LOOK WHAT IT HAS DONE.

  13. Hunter Gathers

    For about 5 seconds there, he was wishing he was back in the Hanoi Hilton, where he didn’t have to take any lip from from the women folk. How in the fuck is it that a bunch of clucking chickens can make the old man squirm, but everybody else kisses his ass 24-7?

  14. randomsausage

    Er, I don’t think Babs is going to get anywhere near SnowVagina after that! You go you octogenarian hottie you, I’d have loved to share a long martini lunch back in the 60s and then retired to your Upper East Side retreat….

  15. Das Storminator

    [re=94722]freakishlystrong[/re]: It’s EVOO, extra virgin olive oil. You have to say the whole thing so people know what EVOO, extra virgin olive oil, stands for.

  16. shortsshortsshorts

    [re=94732]grendel[/re]: Good Mourning!
    Worst salutation ever.
    Don’t worry, no one has a monopoly on grammar.

  17. I Am Not Your Gary Busey

    Thus goes American journalism.
    When Whoopi & Joy Behar are asking tougher questions than anyone else on the TVs you know you’re fukt.

  18. slithy_tove

    I wish they’d asked him why he constantly spins his wedding ring while observing Palin at the podium–and by observing, I mean checking out her ass.

  19. gurukalehuru

    Y’all are missing the point. They got him to say “I think Roe v. Wade was a bad decision.” Lots of women watch that show. Lots of stupid women who were probably unaware he felt that way. Captain Peachfuzz just fumbled away the election.

  20. trophy(forparticipation)wife

    Well among other things you see McCain’s lack of knowledge of Iran in his comment about Zoroastrians.

  21. superfecta

    [re=94730]JadedDIssonance[/re]: That was hilarious. I know that as someone possessing two x chromosomes I’m supposed to watch this show, but in fact I’ve only ever seen clips on YouTube where the really vacuous one cries sad Republican tears.

  22. edgydrifter

    [re=94739]ZippyD[/re]: “My friends, I will do or say anything you want me to. Look! I’ll give one of these broads a foot rub–anything you say–just to make these harpies shut the hell up.”

  23. ZippyD

    [re=94740]randomsausage[/re]: Are you kidding me? They are all going to be totally under that icecntz spell! Have you not seen the saw she darts her little tongue tip out? And her iron-jawed, piercing (unblinking) stare? They will be all squishy and giggly for her, mark my words.

  24. Texan Bulldoggette

    Looks like he wanted to call Joy or Baba a c*nt. I think he figured out that would be a bad move, but he was seriously starting to get pissed. If these yakkers can do that to him, he’ll be throwing a punch at Hopey during the debates.

  25. MargeSimpsonsBlackFriend

    It is a shame that McCain’s toughest interview to date, and probably the toughest he is going to have, is from the hens on the View. Babawa, I fucking salute you.

  26. Hunter Gathers

    Don’t worry Whoopi, he’s not going to make you a slave. But he would like you to be his housekeeper. After all, Crazy Eyes doesn’t have the opportunity to clean up thier 7 houses, with all the time she spends stoned out of her mind on pills and cutting checks to that dipshit daughter of hers.

  27. JadedDIssonance

    [re=94745]4tehlulz[/re]: It’s obvious from your obfuscated “handle” and obscure handsigns that you are one of the interneterati. I commend your fusing of popular culture and the latest political snarks! Welcome!

  28. sati demise

    [re=94736]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: Ellen=rainbow colored.

    Those women started good about the McCain advertisement lies, but then EPIC FAIL.

    The follow up question should have been ‘what kind of ads would you run if Obama was participating in the town hall meetings?’
    Why would that make any difference? Is it ethical to lie about your opponent in a political ad?
    Christ, that nonsensical talking point from McNasty just drives me up the wall.

  29. Borat

    Barbara, you a wonderful. What happened to journalists like you.

    Next time can you also ask “What does Palin have on you to make you pick her?”

    (I’m guessing some video)

  30. Cogito Ergo Bibo

    [re=94754]gurukalehuru[/re]: Exactly. That was the money shot. I’ll give it to Grampy, though. It takes a certain amount of intestinal fortitude to say, “I believe Roe v. Wade was a bad decision,” in a room full of ovaries. What with him not having any and all.

    Interesting turn McCain’s life is taking. Suddenly, he is the one off message. He seems to be spending far too much time trying to explain what Caribou Barbie is or is not bringing to the table and how her beliefs are affecting their platform. I like this development. He’s on the defensive!

  31. ZippyD

    [re=94783]sati demise[/re]: I was thinking the same thing!

    Then I thought it must be a perfectly reasonable line of logic that is beyond my ability to comprehend. Because everyone just says, OK fine, after he peddles what to me looks like crazy, juvenile, asinine, unrelated bullshit excuses.

    Must be totally out of my range, like a sound only dogs can hear.

  32. The Lucky Republican

    I don’t care! I don’t care! I don’t care! I don’t care! I don’t care! I don’t care! I don’t care!

    I would hit it – and by “it” I mean Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

  33. Naked Bunny with a Whip

    Give the man a break. He’s not used to newfangled gadgets like the wireless picture telegraph.

  34. Naked Bunny with a Whip

    Still, I will grant McCain this: Going on The View makes his POW experience relevant for a change.

  35. Norbert

    i hate to say it (really, I hate to say it) but I thought he kept his composure and gave answers that will play in Peoria or wherever. he put the best possible lipstick on the worst possible pig. and he didn’t smack any of them or have a stroke or anything. and there are an awful lot of trollops like that young blonde one who agree and such as.

    our only hope is middle of the road ignorant vagina-americans who watch that show and pause for a second about his Roe v. Wade answer (if they even know what that is) — maybe who are all christianist in public or with their dipshit husbands but who know how dangerous it is to be screwing the mailman and need to keep their options open.

    oh god, i’ve become a Bitterz.

  36. natoslug

    Holy fuck. I’m trying to think of something snarky here, but the fact that this could very well be the next President of the United States makes me ill. Well, he got one thing right in all this, and that’s that we are a “special nation.” All aboard the short bus, America!

  37. Hooray For Anything

    [re=94852]Norbert[/re]: According to TNR, McCain’s numbers are GOING UP! UP! The lesson of course, is blatantly lying, selecting inexperienced shrews as VP, and running scummy ads works.

    Which we all knew.

    We’re doomed, people. Doomed.

  38. irisheyes

    Jesus, that was painful to watch. I kept looking at Whoopi whose expressions varied from quiret exasperation to downright fear.

  39. bess marvin, girl detective

    [re=94718]Rush[/re]: what the fuck is your problem, you misogynistic thunderdouche. these women just asked tougher questions than any of the MEN on the other news programs you watched and yet all you can talk about is “yentas” and other bullshit. and what’s worst? YOU AREN’T FUNNY.

    if anything, joy behar and co. hopefully showed people how unprepared john mccain is to lead this country. he has given up EVERYTHING including his own personal beliefs just to be called president of the united states. he stands for nothing which means he’ll fall for anything.

    back to my original point, sara, disemvowel this asshole.

  40. StripesAndPlaids

    THANK YOU!

    “one of his most infuriating talking points of this whole infuriating campaign, which is that he had to start running ads that were complete utter laughable bullshit lies because Obama didn’t want to debate him as often as McCain would have liked.”

    I have heard this argument time and time again and it is the most laughable, assinine and dishonest statement of the campaign! If you don’t do what I want, then I will be forced to call you a vapid, sexist, snobby know-nothing pedophile. Don’t blame me, it is your decision. ARRRGGHHH!!!!!!

  41. trh

    [re=94811]tunamelt[/re]: Unfortunately Huell Howser only airs on California Public Television Stations — sometimes Las Vegas and Oregon, but pretty much only California. I have had the great pleasure of introducing his fine program to many of my friends who relocated here from places that are all the poorer because they are sans Huel Howser and California’s Gold.

    Side note: I went to one of his places he visited because it was near me, and all anyone was talking about (they were all of the McCain demographic) was that Huel was standing RIGHT there, or went down THIS aisle.

  42. edgydrifter

    [re=94917]trh[/re]: Huell Howser–the biggest, baddest, gayest Marine ever to trod the public airwaves in size 15 waffle-stompers–would do very, very bad things to that candy-ass flyboy. And he would do them with near-inexplicable levels of enthusiasm.

  43. Hamster

    I see he still holding that invisible skull between his palms, you know, the one he holds every time he lies about lying.

  44. Hamster

    God has a plan for this nation? I’m assuming they don’t yet know what it is, otherwise he is calling god a fuck-up. You’re free to believe in whatever you want, as long as it ain’t not Christianity.

  45. irisheyes

    [re=94818]Cogito Ergo Bibo[/re]: I hadn’t looked at it like that, WLANUTZ is having to explain himself and is no longer on the attack. And, his repeated message is getting to sound old; people want answers after a while- especially the independents- not just the same “she’s gonna reform all of Washington” bullshit.

    Thanks for helping me see it another way, kind of made my weekend. I wonder what other crazy nonsense Palin will say in the next part of the interview?!

  46. regisgoat

    [re=94917]trh[/re]: Remember when they went after his doddering old behind on The Simpsons? (Hint: the character literally falls off the turnip truck.) I bet a lot of non-Californians didn’t realize that he was based on a real person. Hauser’s tour of Agate Beach in Ft. Bragg, Ca, was especially magic; he was like the little kid asking “Why is there air?”

  47. jimh

    Well, he made it through that without using the word “cunt”.
    So, from his campaign’s POV: Total Success!

  48. Borat

    Please don’t unleash the crackz snowbilly training team on Walnuts, this election will just become more unfunny. Plus he doesn’t have as pretty eyes as hers when he bats them at me

  49. Gopherit v2.0

    Heh. Barry’s campaign said this in response to McCain’s appearance on the View:

    Today on “The View,” John McCain defended his campaign’s latest ad campaign, which has been debunked repeatedly as both false and sleazy. In running the sleaziest campaign since South Carolina in 2000 and standing by completely debunked lies on national television, it’s clear that John McCain would rather lose his integrity than lose an election.

  50. NoWireHangers

    I just watched it. All I have to say is that I never thought I’d see the day when The View would make me proud. Good job ladies, you skewered him. I thought WALNUTS! was going to punch Babwa at one point. Oh, to see WALNUTS! squirm. He’s lucky he picked Palin; she’s the only thing keeping him afloat, and it’s only a matter of time until the snowmobile she rode in skids off a cliff.

  51. moviechick

    Holy crap, what has happened to Barbara Walters? I thought she would just sit back and let Joy Behar and Whoopi do all the work, but she took charge. She must be REALLY pissed.

  52. SisterTruth

    I am African American, and I am glad that somebody finally asked him about whether or not he plans to reinstate slavery. Since I’m sure he fondly remembers the 19th century when he was 20 years old, I think this is a legitimate question. I would also like to know what Sarah Palin is going to do when she sees a Black person for the first time.

  53. Oscar Folsom Cleveland

    Poor, poor Ol’ Man Cancercheeks….always getting picked on by teh womenz, he deserves so much better, having died for our sins in the Hanoi Hyatt and been reborn in the arms of his Viet-Namese bondage master, a Christian man who taught Juan how to draw crosses in the sand.

    Meanwhile, back at Sarah Plain’s new home, the current precedent and his posse were looking for some change, or perhaps just feeling shamed: http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2008/09/11/us/0911-ANNIV_9.html

  54. herodotus

    SisterTruth: you and Whoopie should read the US Constitution before making snarky comments about it. Strict interpretation of the Constitution is a requirement for Supreme Court nominations, should McCain get to make any. A strict interpreter of the Constitution would not reinstate slavery because the 13th Amendment (which banned slavery in the US) is in the Constitution. And memzilla, that supersedes the original Dred Scott case.

    I don’t even support McCain, I just hate when people get history wrong.

  55. Texas2Step

    [re=94675]Devil Anse[/re]: They wanted to be ready for the funeral in case he dropped dead on set.

    Too soon….? A little harsh….?
