In the spirit of the much-deserved John McCain hatred around here, radaronline reports McCain’s own explanation for his -ahem- unraveling campaign: those damn homosexual sweaters!
Oh yes, Mr. Manhug himself is furious at his handlers for forcing him to wear “gay sweaters” in an effort to look younger and more approachable. Sorry, but you could throw go-go shorts, a belly shirt and a spiked collar on that corpse and he’d still look like the shriveled prune he is.
“According to one insider, the knit-picking was the crescendo of a tirade by the Arizona senator, in which he blistered aides about the minutiae of the campaign,” a source said. “He wasn’t happy being dictated to. The sweaters were part of that.” A rival campaign source said, “Do those [unflattering] sweaters matter in the grand scheme of things? Probably not. But it’s indicative of how [McCain] lost his way. He just allowed himself to be managed into oblivion.”
At least he finally stood up for his homophobic self. You go, girl! I’m sure your lack of clarity on the issues, wild flip-flopping and rigid aherence to a failed war has nothing to do with your dwindling support. Go put on some manly clothes and kick some butt!
