  • John McCain Responds To Obama: The President Must Be Held Responsible

    The Arizona Senator responded to a statement from President Obama at his press conference today where he said attacks by Senator McCain and Lindsay Graham of South Carolina on Ambassador Susan Rice were “outrageous.” McCain said the President needed to be held responsible, and reiterated his call for a special committee to investigate the terrorist attack at Benghazi and the Obama Administration’s response.

  • McCain on Twitter

    Just in the nick of time for the 2008 election, John McCain has finally joined Twitter! But seriously, for a man of his age, you do have to give him some serious credit for fiddling around with the internet all on his lonesome, and actually tweeting semi-frequently. Last tweet was 3 hours ago.

  • Joe the Plumber: ‘McCain Appalled Me’

    Joe Wurzelbacher had some nasty things to say about John McCain on radio host Glenn Beck’s show today. Joe, who apparently still exists, claims that he was appalled by some of the things that McCain said and that the experience of campaigning with McCain made him feel “dirty.” The only reason he stuck around was that he hated Barack Obama even more.

  • If the World Could Vote …

    More than 800,000 people from around the world have cast their ballots in this virtual election simulation. For what it’s worth, McCain only seems to have a fighting chance with the American Samoan, Venezuelan, and Georgian electorate. Results here.

  • Synchronized Presidential Debates

    You could probably do this to just about any politician who’s used to repeating the same talking points, but it’s still pretty incredible to watch. Some impressive (and painstaking) video editing that peaks with a chorus of McCains saying, “My friends”.

  • McCain Campaign Worker Admits She Made-Up Attack

    CBS News: Police sources are saying that “a campaign worker has now confessed to making up a story that a mugger attacked her and cut the letter ‘B’ in her face after seeing her McCain bumper sticker.” The story broke in the press two days ago and was all over the news, but police said there were inconsistencies with her story. She has since confessed that it was a total lie, and is facing charges.

  • My Fellow Prisoners

    McCain gaffed today and addressed a campaign event audience as “my fellow prisoners”. Woopsies, we’re not in Hanoi anymore, are we Cindy? He was talking about domestic policies or something, and clearly didn’t intend that Freudian slip. Naptime! Thanks, Jack! Watch Video ›

  • Not McCain’s Friend

    McCain’s incessant use of the phrase “my friends”, has a growing number of people announcing that they are in fact Not McCain’s Friend. It’s a hot political topic across the Twitter universe right now, and the Washington Post is calling it “McCain’s tic”. All in all, he said it 22 freaking times in last night’s debate, which also just so happens to be the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet. Playing to the Jews, are we McCain? Conspiracy Alert!

  • McCain Hates Bears

    In the first presidential debate, John McCain cited a bear DNA study as an example of pork barrel spending. He seemed also to imply a hatred of bears. The bear project in Montana, as it turns out, isn’t a pork product, and even the numbers he quoted were wrong. Nonetheless, his dislike of bears remains. Read More ›

  • McCain Steals Music

    Nancy and Ann Wilson, John Cougar/Cougar-Mellencamp/Mellencamp, Van Halen and Jackson Brown ask McCain to stop using their music. Seems the Republicans can’t even steal their way out of their white stodginess. I say all for the better. If I see one more Democrat dancing to Fleetwood Mac I’m gonna slit my wrists with a cracked Rumors LP. Read More ›

  • The Words They Used

    A chart displaying the frequency of words used by both Republican and Democratic speakers at their respective conventions. The Democrats top three are Change, McCain, and Energy, while the Republicans focused on God, Taxes, Businesses and Change. It’s not quite Fleshmap, but there were still plenty of asses on stage.

  • Chris Matthews Smackdown Part Deux

    Chris Matthews takes on Clintons for Mccain founder Cristi Adkins at the Democratic National Convention. This woman makes a claim about Obama’s past, but when Matthews asks her to cite her sources, she simply replies “I’m not telling.” I’m sure if Matthews promised to take her out for ice cream after, she might have budged.

  • McCain Camp Disses D&D

    A McCain campaign spokesman randomly dissed Dungeons & Dragons players in defense of McCain’s memory of war. Naturally, RPG players aren’t happy, so Wired’s begun collecting some hilarious McCain inspired D&D creatures, naming him anything from McKain the Necrotician to a 1st Level Fighter, 14th Level Aristocrat.
