    John McCain And Nancy Reagan Drifted Apart After The Presidential Candidate’s Divorce

    When Nancy Reagan endorsed presidential candidate John McCain back in March, all she said was, “Ronnie [Ronald Reagan] and I always waited until everything was decided, and then we endorsed. Well, obviously this is the nominee of the party.” And that was it. Today, the LA Times writes that this mild endorsement might be the result of John McCain’s divorce from first wife Carol in 1980. Apparently, the Reagans were very fond of Carol, and even high-powered splits result in a division of friends. McCain may or may not have started dating Cindy before he and Carol were separated (there seems to be some discrepancies with the dates), and his marriage to Cindy within weeks of his divorce (they applied for a marriage license before McCain’s divorce had gone through) upset many Republicans.

    Obama’s iPod

    Your musical tastes say a lot about you, blah, blah, blah, so it’s kind of a big deal that in the current issue of Rolling Stone, Barack Obama divulges some of what’s on his iTunes. Obama says he has “pretty eclectic tastes,” and his playlist includes the Rolling Stones, Elton John, Earth, Wind & Fire, Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, and Bruce Springsteen. He thinks hip-hop stars like Russell Simmons, Jay-Z, and Ludacris are “great talents and great businessman,” but wishes his daughters could listen to their music without having to worry “that they were getting bad images of themselves.” I poked around the internet to see whether John McCain has a playlist making the rounds, but all I could find were these from his daughter, Meghan.

    The Frisky TV: Could You Date Someone With Different Political Views?

    There’s an interesting story in the New York Times today about a happy household with widely different political views — their front yard sports signs for both John McCain and Barack Obama. You may have heard of them — California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (a Republican) and his wife, Kennedy family member, Maria Shriver (a Democrat). “I think there are great benefits to having kids grow up understanding that we do not live in a one-party system,” Shriver said. “That there are two ways at looking at an issue. To be patient, and to compromise, those are good lessons not just in politics but for life. I grew up believing there was only one way to think. There isn’t.” A couple weeks ago, we decided to ask people on the street just how capable they would be of being with someone with different political views — their answers may surprise you.

    Ellen Asks John McCain To Walk Her Down The Aisle

    One last thing on the subject of Ellen Degeneres and her upcoming wedding to girlfriend Portia de Rossi. The talk show host had Republican Presidential hopeful, John McCain, on her show last week and asked him straight up about his views on gay marriage (he’s against gay marriage as well as civil unions). It was a civil discussion, handled well by both, but we really give Ellen a hand for asking the tough questions. Maybe she should host a debate during the election! Keep reading »

    Cindy McCain’s Amazing Transformation

    Something I noticed when I was looking for pictures of Mr. and Mrs. McCain this morning — Cindy hasn’t always looked like such a — to quote her husband — trollop. On the left is Cindy back in 2004. On the right is Cindy a few months ago. Prior to 2004, Cindy even rocked a grey pageboy! How a woman changes when she gets hold of a tube of black liquid liner….

    John McCain Throws The C-Word Around

    Being the Prez is a stressful job. It might even take a toll on your marriage, as the Clintons have proved. Cindy McCain may want to book a few therapy appointments in advance, since her husband, John McCain, is the Republican nominee. A new book, The Real McCain by Cliff Schecter, says that in 1992 McCain called Cindy “a c*nt” after she jokingly made a comment about his thinning hair.

    At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain’s hair and said, ‘You’re getting a little thin up there.’ McCain’s face reddened, and he responded, ‘At least I don’t plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt.’ McCain’s excuse was that it had been a long day.”

    Ruh-roh! In fairness, we do think Cindy is a little heavy-handed with the black eyeliner, but lord, calling your wife, any woman for that matter, the c-word is on the short list of words men should be castrated for using. That’s our c-word, by the way. [Feministing] Keep reading »
