let’s free John McCain

This first piece – “Free John McCain” – is a satire about an alternate universe where McCain defects from the GOP and unleashes his inner liberal.


Adam’s friend did this. I like how you can recognize all the locations, like Union Square and the escalator inside Philene’s Basement/ DSW on 14th Street. Well done!

30 Rock is more liberal than 24

I like what Gawker says about The Hills being conservative – “Heidi Montag endorses McCain, he calls her “a very talented actress”, John Adams twirls in his grave. Plus it’s all about remorseless spending and there are no gays on the show and, actually, thousands of gays in LA, especially working in fashion for God’s sake.”

No wonder I hate that show.

That one

In case you missed it, McCain referred to Obama as “that one” in last night’s debate.  Here are some possible reasons why he did so, via Radar:

• He forgot Obama’s name.
• He didn’t want to say Obama’s name out of fear that he might make the “Osama” slip-up.
• He did want to say Obama’s name so that he could explicitly make the “Osama” slip-up, but forgot Obama’s name.
• He didn’t want to say Obama’s name because he has no respect for Obama and doesn’t believe they belong on the same stage.
• He didn’t want to say Obama’s name because he’s infuriated with Obama for not bending over and taking it like previous Democratic nominees.
• He was so busy channeling Ross Perot that he decided he might as well do an homage to the diminutive Texan’s “you people” moment.
• “That one” focus tested better than “the colored boy over there.”
• Old people have a harder time identifying discrete shapes and forms; McCain wanted to make clear that he was talking about Obama and not the bunting in the background.
• McCain has come to realize that his incredibly dishonest campaign, with its desperate use of fearmongering and racial animus, will go down in history as one of the ugliest attempts to win the presidency at the expense of honesty, comity, and basic human decency, and, worst of all, it won’t even be successful. This man, who spent five years under the most brutal conditions imaginable, has forever tarnished his legacy and when people one hundred years from now look back at the election of 2008 all they’ll remember him for is failed gimmicks, coded bigotry, and the disturbing way in which he doddered about the stage. His guilt—not only at destroying his own reputation, but at the low and poisonous way in which he’s tried to destroy Obama’s—is so overwhelming that McCain can barely shake Obama’s hand, meet his eye, or say his name.
• They all look alike.

I do love Go Fug Yourself

In fact, I was just thinking about how much I love Go Fug Yourself when I read their assessment of dressers in this month’s issue of Dwell (so best!). And I loved their post on “Eva Afugri” recently, but how could they forget that her hair style is totally the same as what Charlie did to that girl in the final challenge of this season’s Shear Genius??

Well, here’s the comparison that I really wish the Fug girls had remembered. I’m so smart.

Am I right???

Also, this debate is infuriating. I really liked when Obama just reminded people that John McCain said “Bomb bomb bomb Iran” that’s hilarious.

McCain has time to watch The Hills?

I can’t even sit through a full episode because the fake conversation is just too awful.. and as Nora pointed out, the show is really just based on Lauren’s eyebrow raises. But, hey I guess it doesn’t take much to entertain McCain..

“Asked for a reaction to the news that he’d been endorsed by reality-soap bad girl Heidi Montag of “The Hills,” John McCain told Swampland: “I’m honored to have Heidi’s support and I want to assure her that I never miss an episode of ‘The Hills,’ especially since the new season started.”

Spencer for VP! ewwwwwwwwwww!
