John McCain Will Be Our Next Vice President!

We have been wondering what fantastic campaign stunt John McCain might pull next. Declare war on Iceland? Suspend his campaign for Rosh Hashanah? But clearly we were not thinking big enough. John McCain will announce shortly that he’s such a bipartisan maverick he is switching parties and running for Number Two, because country above self and all that. Plus he hates Joe Biden.

    They’re using Jedi mindtricks now. It Illumitati’s use of subliminalism isn’t as subliminal as it used to be.

  2. Cogito Ergo Bibo

    I heard that yesterday and thought my ears were playing tricks on me! That guy lost his job as a VP for some company with no notice and no severance package after 5 years of service. Apparently he also lost his perception of reality in the bargain as well.

  3. Voted for Mondale

    I like the Iceland idea. It’s consistent with the Bush Doctrine of invading small wienie countries that (i) annoy us; and (ii) have no real capability to fight back.

  4. Sussemilch

    Was that a failed introduction for Biden or a failed introduction for McCain?

    Me so confused.

    From FRIEDA on the LA Times blog comments…

    “I am reading Obama’s book and on page 100, he admits he like radical personalities!:
    “To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist Professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets.”

    Clearly this man is a Punk-Rock Performance Poet, and thus more deserving of our pity than our scorn.

    Seriously, McCain’s best chance now is if he and Palin swap spots on the ticket. Then Baby Jesus will personally change Godless Liberal voters’ hearts and give the GOP a landslide victory.

  7. Too Lazy To Sign In

    Is that the Boss they were playing as the lead-in? Bruce is not going to like that.

    Add another to the list of Cease and Desist letters the McCain campaign receives.

    John Melloncamp
    Foo Fighters
    Bruce Springsteen
    The Carpenters

    Double Fail!

    The guy thought he aced it. He used to be a republican and just switched recently. He still has McCain on the brain.

  9. Gopherit v2.0

    That guy is in the tank…..or he’s been drinking whatever made McCain call us all prisoners.

  10. Scarab

    Where did they find five black people willing to hold signs in support of McCain?
    Wow, the economy is so bad that folks will take any job.

    [re=127564]Doglessliberal[/re]: The story begins the night of Sept. 27, when Bob and Joanne Breiner of Gaithersburg returned home with their son after eating at a Chinese buffet.

    OH MY GAWD THAT IS A FANTASTIC FUCK UP. You really can’t fuck up more then that… unless of course he had introduced “Corpses in my closet from 20 years ago.”

    And the crowd is equally as appealing… just a massive horde of screaming yahoos who probably don’t listen to anything except for the key words, “hope change economy rebuild trust reborn great nation” and the like. We are a nation of retards.

  13. Doglessliberal

    [re=127673]NoWireHangers[/re]: it was just a fabulous story, right down to the “my wife has to feed the intruder because she is Sicilian” AND the drunk guy thought his wife “just got another cat”! You cannot make this stuff up.

    I think these videos are so creepy, all around, that I wish I had never seen them.

    The condescending and disrespectful attitude of the videographer is just as vulgar as the ignorance and racism of the McCain supporters.

    This is the ugliest depiction of contemporary American politics that I’ve seen…and this was the case BEFORE the economic meltdown. Maybe it really is time to move to someplace normal like…..where, Iceland?

    I love Wonkette, but somehow I feel you guys went too far in pushing these videos. Maybe one and a link to YouTube or something….but three in our faces doesn’t reflect well on any of us.

    How much of the worst of the worst of the worst is worth it to publicize. This is political pornography, really. Maybe even political child pornography or snuff films.
