John McCain’s Twitter Talks Awkwardly To Cancer-Bed Troll

Oh, walnuts.
Gross old liebot John McCain, whose entire head is made of skin cancer and bullshit, is having a very important policy discussion with “Snooki,” a bright orange dwarf who appeared on a chilling documentary about emotionally challenged adolescents left alone in a tacky vacation house to die of STDs. John McCain won’t tax you for working hard to get skin cancer, because look what skin cancer did for him! [Twitter via Wonkette operative "Jack O."]

    Here it comes, the Tanning Bed Burst. The tanning bubble will bust because the government overtaxes the tanning salons which results in the stock market crashing and everyone eating hobo beans…

    …and being pale.

    …first, they came for our tanning beds.

    Don’t tread on me!

  2. I_KILL_ZOMBIES_ALSO

    Wait! HE would require wearing sunscreen?!

    GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION! I DONT NEED THE FED TO TELL ME WHAT TO DO! OVEREACH! SOCIALISM!

    HITLER!!!!

    Wellwellwell. “Geezer Master Beaver” is back at the Tweeter-teletype thing again. Just cold typin’ something he musta read in a People magazine while waiting in the doctor’s office to get one of his thrice-yearly prostate exams.

  4. problemwithcaring

    [re=595847]BarackMyWorld[/re]: Right. I bet he thinks sunscreen is another name for that door on the porch.

    Ugh, it smells like old man in here.

    Next, he twatters a response to skoalrebel.

  5. Scarab

    This reminds me of when our high school, attempting to be hip and cool, announced a new program called ‘Rapping with the Principal’. It’s just so sad.

  6. Deelzebub

    People need to stop treating my pale heritage like it is something to be ashamed of. I’m pasty and I’m proud!

  7. Beowoof

    McCain responding in support of tanning beds. No way, this dumb bastard had a couple of big chunks of his face cut off because of skin cancer and he is supporting tanning beds.

    I don’t know if McCain’s support of tanning beds will help him bang Snookie or not but hey it was worth a try.

    And actually responding to one of the most obtuse people on television and his selection of Sarah “store bought boobies” Palin, speaks volumes about McCain being a dirty old man hoping to score some young ass. Pass the viagara Grampy is taking his fighter out the trouser hanger tonight.

    When Smelly, Crotchety Old Grandpas Try To Be Socially Relevant: A Tragedy In 3 Acts

    Act 1: 2004: John McCain tries that new-fangled “breakdancing thing” and breaks a hip
    Act 2: 2008: John McCain adds a tacky cocktail waitress with a modern “hair-do” to his ticket while running for President of the United States of America
    Act 3: John McCain tries that new-fangled “Twittering Book” thing and breaks a hip

  9. chascates

    Snooki from Jersey Shore? Probably a friend of Meghan’s. And I love how the photo cuts off the left-side of his mouth that has the Cyst of Death.

  10. SayItWithWookies

    [re=595847]BarackMyWorld[/re]: Now that you mention it, it’s got a whiff of @SarahPalinUSA about it, doesn’t it? I wonder if it’s the same person who does her facebook posts or someone different.

  11. ManchuCandidate

    [re=595867]Beowoof[/re]:
    I can’t think of a good reason why a skin cancer survivor would be in favor of tanning beds either.

    Actually, I’m just stunned he knew who Snooki is. Considering McCain’s douchey history, I guess I really shouldn’t have been surprised as he probably relates to a lot of the gang of Gui-tards.

  12. Lionel Hutz Esq.

    Obviously, McCain is planning on running again in 2012, and he has already found a more credible running mate this time around.

  13. Words

    This might be sad if McCain didn’t have 1st-hand experience w/melanoma and its causes. Actually, it’s disgusting. This old fart will do and/or say ANYTHING for a damn vote. — please. Have you at last no sense of shame or dignity, John? Believe me, there is a life after this bullshit politics. You just might feel free!

    To think this guy survived Hanoi Hilton to become such a sad footnote in political history….

    Somebody wipe the drool off his face, ok? and put Grampy to bed.

  14. Jim89048

    I only know Snooki as that drag vharacter from SNL. Good enough reason for me not to twat.

  15. dex

    i think that tweet would make a fine slipcover to the hardback edition of senator john mccain’s biography.

  16. Beetletheknee

    Isn’t recommending someone wear sunscreen while tanning (to allay the risk of cancer) like recommending someone eat a bowl of ice-cream between every meal to avoid hunger pangs while dieting? Am I missing something fundamental here? And why is no one in the govt making the very logical parallel between taxing cigarettes (a luxury item AND known carcinogen) and taxing tanning (a luxury service AND known carcinogen) more overt?!?! ARGH!!

  17. Brick Oven Bill

    And we all know that Al Frankin is a fat person, who touches strangers without invitation, while saying stupid things.

    So the political sides are even.

  18. Lionel Hutz Esq.

    All right, just to be serious for a second. I have to listen to FOX News, talk show idiots, and other Republicans complain that Obama hurts the integrity of the Presidency when he goes street and says “Ass,” but there standard holder is now reduced to tweeting some reality show embarrassment in twitterese, and that doesn’t demean the presidency by implication?

    Although, after he picked Sarah Palin to be a heartbeat away, I guess we all knew he didn’t really have much respect for the Presidency.

  19. Bearbloke

    [re=595853]imissopus[/re]: No – for Charlie Crist…

    …besides, is McWALNUTS still a Senator? I thought he lost out last night to Orly Taintz?

  20. nappyduggs

    [re=595871]chascates[/re]:

    Mmm…yes. Seeing his face in its “waning gibbous” phase makes me wonder if maybe that cyst and its many years of bile and pus and lies are what makes Fencey McHardstools such a crank. Or maybe the damned thing has its own personality and acts like the li’l devil that is otherwise perfectly content sitting on a normal-faced person’s shoulder. What if someone just cold jammed a shunt in that puppy and rewired all that juice from his face to his shriveled up old wang? Would he become a worthwhile member of society?

    Prolly not?

    Yeah, prolly not.

  21. KnaveOfDiamonds

    But, the unintended consequences! Rational tan seekers, avoiding the tax, will buy up the world supply of heat lamps. This will drive up the production costs of McDonalds and Burger King *astronomically*. Unable to afford their staple diet of hamburgers and fries, MILLIONS will starve!!! Why does Obama hate Americans?

  22. Oh hell to the no

    I am ashamed I know this but the o’s in the REAL Snooki’s Twitter name are 0′s.
    Sn00ki. That’s all.

  23. Duz Itayew

    A “bright orange dwarf”?? They exist? OMG! Hey, Daddy, I want an Oompa Loompa! I want you to get me an Oompa Loompa right away!

  24. SayItWithWookies

    [re=595897]Lionel Hutz Esq.[/re]: I wonder how those FOX folks feel about admitting to torture — does that demean the office? I’m sure it’s a notch or two less important than lying about a blowjob, but still it has to demean the office somewhat.

  25. Aurelio

    [re=595899]nappyduggs[/re]: [re=595871]chascates[/re]: That is a cyst? I mean, if you say so. But do you know it? I though his squirrel cheeks had something to do with….WALNUTS!

  26. you didn't ask, but

    [re=595897]Lionel Hutz Esq.[/re]: right. Meanwhile, Cheney tells sitting senators to fuck themselves and they give him a ticker-tape parade. Bary’s damned if he does, doesn’t, etc.

    [re=595867]Beowoof[/re]: That’s disgusting
    [re=595899]nappyduggs[/re]: That’s disgusting
    re=595899]nappyduggs[/re]: “waning gibbons” ftw
    [re=595918]SayItWithWookies[/re]: That’s disgusting

    Pasty McCain, I think Sn00ki’s tanning bed would find you very taxing. If the AZ sun hasn’t given you a natural glow, not even Sarah’s industrial strength model will work much less Nicole Polizzi’s low rent version.
    [re=595867]Beowoof[/re]: see above, also.

  27. Bearbloke

    [re=595918]SayItWithWookies[/re]: But torture is in the Bible , Mate, and thus ordained by Almighty GAAAAAAAAAAAAWD. Bush was just being a “Good Christian®”, doin’ THE LORD‘s work with the heathen sand-negros…

  28. arewethereyet

    [re=595893]schvitzatura[/re]: Oh man, links like that should come with a warning! scared the poop out of me! that is a snooki?

  29. Aflac Shrugged

    For policy reasons, President Obama has been excluded from chicken cutlet night.

  30. I_KILL_ZOMBIES_ALSO

    [re=595922]Snarkalicious[/re]: Damn, I always forget that part. It’s inadequate, right? Inade… got it.

    INADEQUATE BLACK MALES!!!!! DONT TREAD ON ME!

  31. 4tehlulz

    There is no way in hell McCain wrote this. He never would have been able to make that “The Situation” reference.

  32. Terry

    [re=595867]Beowoof[/re]:

    McCain’s principled stands these days are easy to predict. He comes out against anything that Obama says or does. Simple as that. Doesn’t have to make sense with regard to his life or his past stands at all.

    Oh, here’s a thought. McCain should run again and pick Snooki as his running mate.

  33. chascates

    Sooner or later that thing on his cheek is going to burst through the skin, Alien-like, and look around for another host. Lieberman will get a pass but Sen. Graham had better be careful.

  34. rikitikitavi

    [re=595880]Darkness[/re]: I’m sure John asked the same thing after Meghan wrote this for him.

  35. Bubberella

    You know what promotes a tan and doesn’t cost a dime? Homelessness. Have you ever seen a pale homeless person?

  36. lizzieborden

    And when asked how she felt about the tweet from McCain, Snooki replied “Who’s that? Is that Sarah Palin’s husband?”

  37. groove

    I loathe when old people try to shove so much into their Twats that they butcher the shit out of the English language.

    Dear old people: please stop stuffing your twats. It’s unbecoming. kthxbai.

  38. June Cleaver 2.0

    It’s so undignified to talk to someone named Snooki in public. And here we have U.S. senators speaking in this way. No snark. This is just so amazing to me. He’s 70 years old, white, and a senator, and he’s talking to Snooki. I… this… can’t… believe….

  39. XOhioan

    Dignity? This a man who screamed at his wife, in public, “FUCK YOU! FUCK, FUCK, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck!!!”

  40. Bearbloke

    [re=596321]XOhioan[/re]: I think he meant to phrase that as a earnest if frantically-, desperately-worded request?
