Is it just me or does Cindy McCain come across as kind of creepy and disconnected from reality?
Maybe it’s the botox and the too-perfect eyebrows.
Or maybe it’s her smug, I’m-better-than-you-because-I-adopted-a-brown-baby, I’m-so-rich-I-can-spend-all-my-time-volunteering attitude that seems to permeate every thing she says.
Elitist. I think that’s the word I’m looking for.
Anyway- in another attempt to help Americans “get to know her” she sat for an interview on ABC’s Good Morning America yesterday.
As I watched it all I could think was: the more I get to know her, the more I dislike her.
Most of questions were pure crap- just a chance for Cindy to explain how much she loves spending her oh-so-abundant free time helping poor deformed babies in far off lands.
No questions about the drugs she stole or the recipes she plagiarized.
Actually, all of the questions were softballs, but she still managed to miss a few.
The first was her attack on Michelle Obama’s patriotism: “I don’t know why she said what she said all *I* know is that I’ve always been proud of my country.”
Which is basically the equivelent of saying “I don’t know what’s in my competitor’s product – all I know if that *my* product doesn’t contains rat feces.”
It’s a sideways attack but an attack none-the-less. And I’m pretty sure it will backfire.
But, in my opinion, the bigger strike came when she was asked about her husband’s recent attempts to court women voters.
When presented with the fact that many women think John McCain’s anti-abortion stance is anti-woman she goes off on some rant about how “supporting our troops is very pro-woman” and how her husband isn’t anti-woman “he’s pro-America.”
“Because”, she says, “if America is strong it’s good for all of us.”
Do Republicans actually believe their own talking points?
