Elections 2008

McCain's new platform: "If you change your mind, I'm the first in line, honey I'm still free, take a chance on me."

NPR had an article on the Prez Candidate's top 10 favorite songs. McCain's--well, I'm going to have to reevaluate my entire take on him--was ABBA's "Dancing Queen."

Imagine him walking down the halls of the white house whistling it, the secret service looking awkwardly at each other. Think--he probably sings this in the shower, at least occasionally.

What does this mean? I don't know. I don't think any political consultant would have said, "okay, number one, write in 'Dancing Queen'" That's...too much.

No, it's possible. I mean, you've got Reagan talking about how much he digs Springsteen, while he's fucking over America's rust belt, stuff like that. ABBA is trendy these days, so the candidate saying he likes them makes him seem so warm and human, ya know?

So he likes ABBA? Small price to pay for 4 more years of Bush policies I guess ;)

Maybe he likes to pull a boa out of the wife's closet and dance around in his underwear while singing this?

He IS republican after all.

I can just imagine his PR guys listing all of his LEAST favorite songs (along with those which make him look young) on little slips of paper, pulling them out one by one, and ending up with Dancing Queen. There is just no way.
Either that or a very young relative of his saw Mamma Mia, mentioned it to him, so he copied it to sound cool and not-so-ancient.

Of all his lies, I like this one the best.
