For the past few months, I’ve said that my dream imaginary dinner party guest list would include Einstein, Snooki, Cleopatra, Meghan McCain, and Joe Strummer. I liked this grouping because no one would have any idea how to process any of the others. Or so I thought. But I just saw that Meghan has interviewed Snooki for a Q & A on the Daily Beast. Apparently, Meghan is an avid “Jersey Shore” watcher and is the one who told her papa, John, when Snooki dissed Barack Obama for including a tax on tanning in the healthcare bill.
After the jump, the choicest quotes from Snooki. Hint: she voted for McCain because she thinks he’s cute. Snooki on politics:
“I voted for McCain. To be honest with you, I’m not really a Republican or a Democrat. I actually signed up as an independent, just because I don’t want to pick any side and also I don’t really know a lot about politics. So when I saw it was Obama and McCain, to be honest with you, the only reason why I voted for your father was because he was really cute and I liked when he did his speeches.”
Snooki on the tanning tax:
“I really don’t see the reason why there would be a tax on tanning, because so many people go tanning even though they’re not, like, Guido/Guidettes. People go tanning because they like to feel tan. You feel more sexy when you’re tan and I don’t understand why you would tax on that.”
Snooki on her role models:
“I wouldn’t say a role model, but I do admire Kendra Wilkinson and Tori Spelling, just because of their family. You know, they’re in the limelight just as much as I am, but they have a husband, they have kids and I think that’s awesome.
Snooki on the reaction she gets in Hollywood:
“Celebrities are fans of us. They actually get more star-struck to meet us than we are of them.”
