Judging from how hard television producers have already worked to book John McCain on their shows this year, to discuss topics he doesn’t give a flying fuck about, like health care or domestic policy in general or really anything non-deathbomby, he will now probably be on most television shows at all times for the next week or so to discuss his figurehead (Very Serious) role in determining Afghanistan strategy. He even has three programs left today — yeah, that’s right England, you have to put up with this shit too; he’s coming to bomb your “telly” at 19:00 Royal Queen’s Time. And don’t be surprised if he shows up on tomorrow’s episode of Friends, or whatever the top programs are these days. [John McCain via No More Mister Nice Guy/Balloon Juice]

  1. Yeah everything’s funny Wonkette but watch when John McCain becomes the rogue Pope people mysteriously will stop buying big black and pink ads and this place will stop looking like Shanghai at night REAL FUCKING FAST when John McCain becomes the rogue Pope.

  2. A failed Presidential candidate who isn’t even the head of his own party. A man whose military experience consists of crashing planes and getting out of scrapes due to his father’s influence. A man who bucks his own party only when it doesn’t really matter and whose main purpose in life seems to be as fifth wheel in politics.

    On the other hand, Both Lindsey Graham and Joe Lieberman are close friends.

  3. [re=470432]chascates[/re]: Fifth wheel? Hey, Palin is saying the president took HER advice:

    Three months ago, I joined a number of Americans in urging President Obama to provide the resources necessary to achieve our goals in Afghanistan. Tonight, I am glad he mostly heeded that advice.

    At long last, President Obama decided to give his military commanders much of what they need to accomplish their mission in Afghanistan…

    Finally, A Decision for Afghanistan: We’re In It to Win It

  4. Like I said before, this old fart of man lost his final shred of credibility when he picked that White Trash Grifter from Wasilla to be his VP.

    Nice to see the networks still love his maverick douchebaggery!

  5. Remember when Obama was on like 5 talk shows in one day and remember how the chattering class spent a few days before and a few days after debating on whether or not Obama was overexposing himself with most of the people saying it was a political liability? Whatever happened to that viewpoint?

  6. [re=470432]chascates[/re]: You forget making propaganda broadcasts for North Vietnam.

    If he loses in 2010, he’ll be shilling on TV for reverse mortgages or some other vague financial product that preys on the olds. Air pirates are like that.

  7. At least the BBC has improved since I was last home, when Fmr UN Ambassador John Bolton was their go-to guy on all things America-related.

    As this was around the time of the Lockerbie bomber debacle, he was having a whale of a time saying he should have been put to death instead of released and the like.

  8. By the way, has anyone here ever visited the backside of Mount Rushmore?

    If not, I highly recommend doing so the next time you find yourself in the Territory with time to kill. That photo up top—epic though it may be—just doesn’t do it justice.

  9. I have Ameritrade up in another window and all my money is going into oatmeal and Absorbine Jr. futures right now. The advertising windfall is going to be tremendous. I may also invest in the Jazzy Powerchair people.

  10. [re=470457]iwillsavethispatient[/re]: Fuckin’ CBC still has him on speedial, though. He was shooting his mouth off just this morning.

  11. [re=470445]Hooray For Anything[/re]: Like most viewpoints of the “liberal media”, it seems to be different if a Republican is involved.

    Though as much as he has been on shows, you would think he had not been defeated by a huge margin.

  12. That’s it, I’m taking the Hopey stickers off my car until he can find a way to legally have this crippled ass, dust farting Bram Stoker’s Mummy cast reject barred from the morning chat circuit. Srsly. He didn’t just lose, he got upstaged by his single digit starburst producin running mate who can’t even hire a ghost writer that doesn’t get inflicted with chronic liar syndrome. I don’t want to see this guy on my tv unless he’s hawking shamwow and trucknutz at 2 in the morning.

  13. [re=470483]Cicada[/re]: I would have said that’s him getting his first look at the Miley Cyrus bareback picks. Either way, that is the creepiest Non-Orly-Taits smile I’ve ever seen.

  14. [re=470474]Flanders[/re]: This morning they drove me crazy but I’ve grown to love them. I’m going to miss them when they’re gone. The bright colors make me think of beautiful Japanese women in oddball clothes and weird hair giggling like school girls. Most things do, but these ads especially.

  15. His schedule says more about the MSM than about him.

    “Uh, let’s get the oppostition party’s opinion on this, but this time from some asswipe who knows what he’s talking about because of his fucked up arms and stuff, instead of that pretty human beehive in the tight skirt, because, well, because. Let’s do this!”

  16. I look forward to seeing Walnuts! attempt to drive the ‘Star in a Reasonably Priced Car’ segment on Top Gear next week. In his case though, they’ll have to temporarily call it ‘Irrelevant American Old Fart in a Reasonably Priced Car’. He’ll of course have the left blinker on the whole time.

  17. [re=470470]Bearbloke[/re]: No, the backside is where the likenesses of monumental dickheads such as McCain are carved in tribute to the bedrock principles upon which this great country of ours was founded: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Ass-to-Ass.

  18. I voted against this senile old welfare recipient geezer so I wouldn’t have to look at his leering, creepy face every day. Good thing I never watch Meet the Press. I hated Timmeh, but David Gregory gives hero worshipping dick sucking a bad name. I mean if they want a really talented professional bottom, they should get Mike Allen.

  19. Goddammit guys, that picture is seriously screwing with my head. He looks like my neighbor from across the street that fixes his roof at TWELVE THIRTY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FUGGIN NIGHT! That’s what trucknutz is; he’s the creepy neighbor that does midnight lawn work in galoshes and holy sweat pants and his house is filled with neatly stacked cardboard boxes that are unlabled so you have to guess what’s inside of him.

    Grand, now I’m going to have nightmares about Trucknutz and my creepy neighbor from across the street. (who voted for McCain and was three people in front of me in line for two hours on election day)

  20. John McCain has never led any military campaign, unless you’re counting all the times he led the nose of a multi-million-dollar fighter plane into the hull of a ship or Vietnam or whatever. His one and only military credential is “shitty pilot.” And even that’s only because he father and grandfather were admirals.
