Bid on John McCain's presidential campaign!John McCain, that poor little rich boy, was born in an Admiral’s Castle in the 16th Century, so of course he knows nothing about the Internets, which is why he often repeats some weird depressing thing about how millions of Americans are desperately selling off their meager consumer belongings on eBay, as if there’s something dignified about auctioning off your beanie-baby collection to make rent. Oh, and did you know his wonderful campaign business-lady Secretary of McCain Commerce founded eBay all by herself? That is also a lie.

McCain has been trotting out Meg Whitman all year. She’s his national co-chairwoman of his campaign! She is familiar with all internet traditions! Yet, she did not start eBay with five start-up Joe the Stanford Engineer employees.

Pierre Omidyar started eBay. He’s not only a French-Iranian, he’s a Barack Obama supporter!

Whitman was hired as CEO three years later, when it was a big business with 30 employees and had already racked up $100 million in revenues. Before that, she was in executive at Hasbro, where she was actually in charge of Mr. Potato Head, which is why she likes John McCain so much.

  1. Here’s a cute anecdote about eBay from the Wikipedia page on eBay:

    The very first item sold on eBay was a broken laser pointer for $14.83. (though in 2008, eBay later banned the sale of laser pointers.[6]) Astonished, Omidyar contacted the winning bidder to ask if he understood that the laser pointer was broken. In his responding email, the buyer explained: “I’m a collector of broken laser pointers.”[7] The frequently-repeated story that eBay was founded to help Omidyar’s fiancĂ©e trade PEZ Candy dispensers was fabricated by a public relations manager in 1997 to interest the media. This was revealed in Adam Cohen’s 2002 book, The Perfect Store,[4] and confirmed by eBay.

  2. I can’t wait to buy Sarah Palin’s $150,000 wardrobe for $2 on eBay because you know those fucktards are too stupid to set a reserve price.

  3. [re=150614]Toomush Infermashun[/re]: That’s so offensive. Don’t you know McCain can’t put things in boxes anymore because he was tortured? We should elect John McCain president just so he knows you’re sorry.

  4. Cindy McCain is on the teevee right now is some sort of outlandish get-up.

    The combo of red and ringlets makes her look like a Satanic Nelly Oleson.

  5. EBay is great!! It is about the only place you’ll be able to sell autographed pictures of yourself. And if I had more than one picture, I’d probably own a plumbing company by now.

    On Craig’s List, my autograph wasn’t even worth a tube of bartered plumber’s putty.

  6. [re=150650]cal[/re]: Yeah, cause once you open that box up, the ghost is out of the box and haunting you for the rest of your life, kinda like McCain’s pick for Veep is haunting his staff….. They liked the box, but once they opened it up and found it was ’empty’ it was too late and they have been haunted ever since

  7. [re=150602]spencer[/re]: Dude…”definitely”. Vowels are a bitch the older and blinder we become.

    On a lighter note, gun sales are way up in anticipation of the coming race war.

  8. Isn’t ebay the place where people brag about selling stuff for a profit only to be exposed later on for being huge liers? I seem to remember some governor telling a whopper about selling a plane on it once.

  9. [re=150701]Cape Clod[/re]: I have a car I would like to sell you. It is in Nigeria. Right now I am in U.K. I am lucrative business man. I will sell car for 8 dollars. Please send me the correct information for me to have the car shipped to you in United States.

  10. [re=150570]Serolf Divad[/re]: That goes with the legend that when Arapnet was first released from DoD control, within a day somebody posted selling a dinette set on a newsnet by a seller at MIT in MA. Said dinnette set posting’s first response was whether the asking price included shipping to New Zealand.

  11. [re=150728]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: When I was in camp, we challenged the youngest girl’s cabin (they were like 8 year’s old) to a game of soccer (we were 15-17 councilors). We decided to use our souls for the wager. I am now in possession of 13 souls, if you would like to trade any time.

  12. SPECIAL DEAL TODAY ONLY! A crazy bitch from Alaska who won’t stay on message. No minimum bid. Comes with autographed photo of John McCain and a lot of used clothes.

  13. [re=150731]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: You went to a really cool camp. We just got extra free swim time and trail mix for winning capture the flag.

  14. [re=150778]TeddyS[/re]: So most washed up politicians make millions (or hundreds of millions) by giving speeches, or accepting facilitation bribes. I think you’re on to the future of Bible Spice and the whole Snowbilly klan – selling used underwear and the like on Ebay. The retrading alone will create MILLIONS of jobs. God bless america, you don’t get that kind of market distortion under Karl Marx
