McCain Gaffes, Volunteering Wife For Topless Contest

ABC News' Gregory Wallace and Sara Just Report: Sen. John McCain, R-Az., perhaps unknowingly, volunteered his wife for a beauty pageant on Monday that often features contestants topless -- and, occasionally, without any decency -- at the Sturgis, South Dakota, motorcycle rally.

"I was looking at the Sturgis schedule, and noticed that you had a beauty pageant, so I encouraged Cindy to compete," McCain told an audience at the rally. "I told her [that] with a little luck, she could be the only woman to serve as both the First Lady and Miss Buffalo Chip." ABC news blog

The gaffes this election are priceless.

It's too bad some people are taking them so seriously, otherwise you really could get a big laugh at this sort of thing. McCain just seems a bit lost at times for some reason.

Both candidates are nervous and afraid to say "hi" in the wrong way for fear of some reporter/blogger misconstruing it to mean they support "high" oil prices. They're both walking on eggshells.

Um...yeah it is actually.

I thought maybe I was missing something with that remark he made.
I was hoping he didn't mean "chip" chip.

Never noticed.

Like most wives of politicians she just reminds me of some sort of "Stepford Wives" automaton.

Could have been worse though.
He could have included his momma.

Just nothing but a joke, but damn funny. I am sure he wasn't aware that nudity is sometimes a go. It does show he has pride in his wife curves. LOL. I bet his hand was shaking twice as fast when he was reaching for his Viagra. Go Cindy Go.

Oh, this is absolutely priceless!


One would think that McCain's entourage would advise him a little about the audience and area to which he was speaking. You know, to avoid embarrassingly funny gaffes like this.


I bet Cindy almost died when she found out just what kind of pagent Sturgis stages.

the guy is past senile, he opens his mouth and his foot slides neatly into place
I have never seen a candidate who blundered more than Mccain.
Can you imagine this Moron running the WH
the guy is past the age of being able to tie his shoe laces ,drank so much his
His brain is boggled,it boggles the minds of the world. Worse than Bush,And thats saying alot.
Why are the AMericans not asking , Why is it we have to vote for the bottom of the barrel. the Americans don't ask because they are this stupid themselves.
only 2 out 7 can find Europe on a map. I'm not joking it's all down hill.
he has taken a lot of heat off Bush ,because he is dumber than dumb.

The Republican party have lost before they even hold the vote.

The republican party is so Corrupt they don't even bother look for an honest
candidate.
Goes to show he will agree to anything sign anything the guy is incompetent
I pity America if by some chance he gets into power.

I marvel at the fact that you're all letting McCain get away with this kind of idiotic behavior when you know full well you'd be screaming bloody murder if Obama had done the same thing.

Yes, it was a joke. It was a bad joke. It was completely scripted, and probably said [look up and smile] at the end of it judging by his completely awkward conclusion to the joke. But let's at least be honest with ourselves.

Everyone is so busy screaming about how Obama is getting a free pass, when ALL I EVER HEAR ABOUT IS OBAMA. On the tv, on the radio, on the internet. Hell, tune into any McCain speech in the middle of the day and you can hear all about what Obama is going to do instead of what McCain is going to do.

Meanwhile, McCain can look like a complete retard when he didn't have an answer to a legitimate question on Friday in Florida. McCain, a conservative christian running for the highest office in the land, can offer up his wife to thousands of dirty, sweaty bikers and nobody bats an eye.

Isn't there something wrong with this picture? Isn't this a double standard?

I agree.

I have...if you look at my past threads...said the same thing.
I would be hypocritical if I did something I don't condone. I'd rather laugh at the people taking the Obama gaffes seriously then act like they do. If I get in a huff and start calling McCain a "pimp" or a "freak" knowing full well it was a gaffe I'd be looking like the fools that believe Obama is a Muslim terrorist.

Yes and no.

Around this particular forum there seems to be one if by that you mean that a majority of those contributing here are jumping to conclusions over Obama gaffes in a harsh and confrontational way not equal to both candidates, but I think in the broader sense (and in the MSM) there isn't in the way you are implying for Obama.

Just a few gas-bags on radio or hack bloggers that keeps the crap floating your way and want you to believe it's a sail-worthy boat.

See, i'm just not sold on this idea that the mainstream media is giving Obama that free pass. I appreciate what you're saying and I absolutely respect the point you're making.

I do agree that MSNBC is, in large part, in support of Obama. Morning Joe is a good show in the morning that seemed geared toward the younger crowd and Joe Scarborough certainly doesn't support Obama. CNN doesn't seem to be over the top with Obama and they are the most fair when it comes to coverage. I mean, i get to watch just as many McCain gaffes as I do Obama one's!

Yes, everyone is talking about Obama, but so is McCain. Isn't it kind of tricky to accuse the media of spending too much time on him when McCain spends more time on Obama than he does himself? For the past two weeks i haven't heard Sean Hannity talk about anything other than Obama. Rush, Glenn Beck (who i love), OReilly, same thing.

They have the perfect storm working for them. They fuel the media frenzy over Obama and then complain about the frenzy they just helped to create.

I don't think they do entirely either, and I wasn't trying to say that. I was saying in this forum the double standard is glaring, and not so much in the MSM. They aren't hard on either candidate (unless they are pushed to be like with the Wright case), and in my opinion they just focus more on one than the other. I think the Wright focus was their way of showing they can hit at Obama, so if they go light in the future we have something to remember.

Yes, McCain talks more about Obama than himself but he really isn't saying much and flounders when he tries to. Some of his speeches are cringe-worthy and pitiful. You just wanna go up and help him somehow. Especially when he tries acting tough and polite at the same time. He remembered to smile at the end of this one...and I got chills when I saw it. Yikes.



I think conservatives support him because they have to not want to.
He has no charisma and of course he has to attack Obama because he is trying to chip away at the competition.
