There’s a website now online entitled “Women for John McCain.”


I can’t decide if it is meant to be satire or if it is for real. Whichever, it truly is amazing.

For example, right there on the main page is this icon:


Really? A wire coat hanger? I don’t think I need to tell you what that represents, do I? Anyway, if you click on it, you are taken to a page where the advantages and disadvantages of plastic hangers, wire hangers, wooden hangers and padded hangers are discussed.

On the page entitled “Choice,” we are privilege to this bit of wisdom…

John McCain has worked closely with the national press to gain his “maverick” reputation – and that’s why women are choosing John McCain! On the complicated issues of womens’ rights and reproductive choices, we need a strong man with years, and years, and years of experience in the halls of Washington to think and speak for us – and that man is John McCain. With John’s record on choice, he’s uniquely qualified to make our most personal, private choices for us as President.

We need a man with years, and years, and years of experience … to think and speak for us … [and] to make our most personal, private choices for us as President. Come on!

Under “Equal Pay…”

When the Equal Pay issue supported by radical leftists Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton came up for a vote in April 2008, John McCain showed his strong support for women by missing the Senate vote to campaign in front of an audience – with women in attendance – in New Orleans, the city that John McCain showed his maverick leadership style by eating birthday cake in Arizona with President George W. Bush on August 29th, 2005 – the day Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans in one of the worst natural disasters in American history – before Bush headed to the Pueblo El Mirage RV Resort and Country Club for a chat with seniors about his plans to privatize Medicare.

“Family Leave…”

John McCain knows that allowing freeloaders who want to take time off to care for their newborn babies, or attend to their children when they get hurt or fall ill, isn’t as important as making sure that compliance would not increase business expenses or provide financial assistance to businesses to cover any related costs. While countries in Europe may offer family and medical leave that goes beyond what most American workers receive, and some employers even allow paid time off for liberals who don’t earn their keep, it’s the “rugged individualism” of leaders like John McCain that reminds us that as Americans, we shouldn’t be afraid to do things differently than what may be the status quo in other developed nations.

Shall I go on? Oh, okay, just one more.

“Teen Pregnancy…”

Teen pregnancy is a serious issue as our nation forges ahead in the 21st Century. And while John McCain’s platform has many serious issues, few are so important to the next generation as the problem of teen pregnancy in our country.

That’s why John McCain voted against an amendment in the Senate’s 2006 fiscal year budget that would have provided 100 million dollars to our schools to reduce teen pregnancy through sex education, use of contraceptives, lower the incidence of unintended pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases, make birth control more affordable, and improve access to women’s health care. Because if our teenagers and young adult daughters remain innocent, if we take a stand as Americans to protect them from sex education and birth control until they’re married, we can stop teen pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases before they start.

Go check out the entire site, then come back and tell me what you think. Is it real or is it Memorex? Whichever, it truly is an amazing piece of work.

  1. It’s a well done satire. Very understated. Had me fooled until I actually went to look at McCain Style and saw it was nothing but a guide to hangers. Wire hangers include this warning: “can be dangerous with sharp ends that can cause hemorrhaging or other serious, even fatal problems .”

  2. I hope it is a a satire. Otherwise, whoever is doing his press should be replaced. Women and a coat hanger? Ugh.

  3. Ha. Good stuff.

  4. What’s really hilarious is that the McCain campaign actually appears to have ads running on the web site.

  5. @Big Tex : It absolutely does! You’re right, Big Tex. That is hilarious. Those ads do not get there by themselves. Somebody from the McCain campaign approved it and paid for it to be there. Un-fricking-believable.

  6. “Women for John McCain”…

    I’m not sure what’s funnier, this web site (which is a hilarious work of satire) or the fact that the McCain campaign is actually, I kid you not, running ads on the site. If you like Betty Bowers or Whitehouse.org,…

  7. Those McCain ads are being placed via Google, so the McCain staff isn’t actively involved in placing them, but I think there must be a way for McCain to keep them off this particular site.

  8. @Ron : They are still paying for it, which in and of itself is priceless.

  9. Oh, that’s bloody marvelous!
