I just want to say that those making fun of Cindy McCain's facial expressions
and halting expressions are disgusting.She has had a stroke and no matter how awful you may think her husband is it is revolting and classless to be mocking her in this manner. And that also goes for her drug addiction. It was wrong when they did this to Kitty Dukakis and it is wrong now.And I don't give a damn how "rich " she is or what went on before. She is a stroke victim and it is not right to make fun of disabilities.

7. ...


:applause: Thank you for that Saracat...I've always hated people who make fun of others family members. And before people comment with the McCain joke about Reno and Chelsea, it was awful then too.

12. I'm pretty much a heartless bastard.
I make fun of everything, especially myself, with a ruthlessness reserved only for Satan.

But you're right.

15. i didnt know she had a stroke, or caused a disability... ah man, now i have to feel empathy for her
and i had absolutely no problem not feeling it for her because of earlier choices she had made in life.

16. I've never made fun of her facial expressions, but Cindy McCain is an idiot!
Edited on Fri Mar-07-08 11:40 PM by ProSense
Stop trying to guilt people into holding back on their criticism. People criticize Bill all the time, he had heart surgery. People criticize Kerry, and he survived cancer.

On edit: You assume people know everything about the candidates. Instead of these grandstanding posts, why don't you try informing the guilty party?

20. McCain wife
She stole narcotics, if you or I had got caught doing that it would be jail time. I've never made fun of her,but being a hypocrite as both of them apparently are sets me off. He is no war hero. sat in a burning plane, crashed another and was held a prisoner for 5 years,how doe's that make you a hero. Bottom of his class at the Academy, and divorced a wife that was injured and needed him, instead marries a younger wife. I got no use for McLaim, I served on a ship ,did my time in service, I'm no hero and neither is he. I hear they have an opening for a dogcatcher in Phoenix, after he loses he can qualify for that.The only button this creepy guy should his hand on is the weed killer for the garden. O what's the use defeat him it could only be easier if it was a Brownback- Santorum ticket. Get down dems,get a candidate whichever one it is and proceed to kick ass, we need it.

22. I have never heard anyone say anything on here about her facial expressions. Ever, I read daily.
But it is widely known about her drug abuse.

24. They were here. I am not going to crosspost but they refer to "frozen, plastic, stiff and botox.
It just isn't right. There are some nasties right in this thread.

31. They also saidshe has only two expressions. Laura Bush doesn't have a disability
Edited on Sat Mar-08-08 12:31 AM by saracat
other than W, AFAIK. It may be mean but it isn't making fun of a disability.

23. I didn't know about the stroke
but stealing drugs from a charity is pretty indefensible and worthy of mockery.

26. She was an addict, and she did some really fine work with that charity till the addiction took over
Edited on Sat Mar-08-08 12:24 AM by saracat
That doesn't justify it and she may not be the world's best person but she was an addict and addicts will steal from anyone.

33. Well shucks, that makes it okey dokey then!
Of course if she were Cindy Menendez from a trailer park in Mesa, they'd have hauled her ass off to prison for a few years of hard time. But because she was the privileged wife of a prominent local politician, they made the little legal problem go away while she went off for a few weeks "rest". They even made sure to fire and legally harass the charity employee who exposed her embezzlement. Meanwhile, John McCain continues to strut around as a Law and Order Republican.

Why are you even defending these hypocrites? Why isn't Cindy out there protesting our stupid draconian drug laws, since she has personally suffered from addiction? Fuck no, she'd rather make speeches decrying Michelle Obama for not being patriotic enough.

I'm sorry she had a stroke, but she's still a dick.

27. Don't worry about the drug theft from the charity...
It was a charity that she set up just so that it could legally buy the drugs she stole from it. That takes some intricate thought and planning! No harm, no foul! :sarcasm:

29. I admire her for adopting that little Asian girl. The story behind that is very touching
I think she is a very decent woman with a good heart.

30. I actually get a huge kick out of McCainBlogette
Meghan McCain is a hoot (plus, she voted for Kerry in 2004) and Cindy is just lovely. Picking on families instead of looking a little deeper is cynical at best.

32. I didn't know about her stroke and would not have done the thread of pics about
her had I known. But her drug problems are not that simple. She stole from a charity and had the whistle blower fired. And then she blamed her drug problems on pressure from the Keating 5 scandal - which she could have had real criminal problems for destruction of evidence. There is a lot more about her that will come out. It surprises me that they would want to subject themselves to it. If Cindy wants to save herself from ridicule she should learn to keep her mouth shut when it comes to Michelle Obama.
