The Dabblings of the Plastered Trollop

As has been widely reported, John McCain's ghastly wife, the Plastered Trollop, has been attacking Obama lately.

Cindy McCain:

“The day that Sen. Obama cast a vote to not to fund my son when he was serving sent a cold chill through my body let me tell you,” Cindy McCain said in introducing the GOP ticket. “I would suggest Sen. Obama change shoes with me for just one day. I suggest he take a day and go watch our men and women deploying.”

Of course, this is like the waterboy talking smack to the 250 linebacker. But it's even more absurd. Talking Points Memo points out:

Here's the thing, though. If Obama's vote against that supplemental can be said to constitute a vote not to fund Cindy's son, as she put it, McCain, too, can be said to have voted to defund his own son.

McCain, of course, also opposed an Iraq troop funding bill in 2007 -- the one that did include a withdrawal timetable -- and voted against passage of the bill in the Senate.

It's important to be as clear as possible about this. If we accept Cindy's implication that Obama's vote constituted a danger to the McCains' son, then John, too, put his own son at risk -- all because the bill he voted against would have brought his son and his fellow troops home and ended the war McCain wants to continue.

Has she gone back to stealing painkillers from her charity? Memo to Cindy McCain: stick with the Vicodin and leave the politics to the pros.
