Look! It’s old Maverick-Face!

Blog Guy, does Republican candidate John McCain seem distracted these days?

Yes, he has other stuff on his mind. He’s auditioning for a spot in the the Oddly Enough Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop. He’s getting close, but isn’t quite there yet.

I’m not familiar with that institution.

It’s a VERY popular Washington, DC tourist attraction, right under the White House. We have 6,000 photos of famous people making incredibly goofy faces. And warm, tasty doughnuts, too!

Wow! And you say it’s almost as popular as the White House?

No, I said it’s RIGHT UNDER the White House. Good luck finding it.

Be a little less creepy.  Join the Oddly Enough blog network!

Why didn’t you put the one up of Obama when he found out that Bill Ayers was a terrorist? Or when he found out that the FBI was investigating his ties to ACORN? Those are good ones.

To UNIONS=ORGANIZED APATHY re: Obama’s reaction to: “the FBI was investigating his ties to ACORN?”

This is yet again, a smear tactic cooked up by the right-wing nuts to attempt to discredit Obama. The FBI investigates lots of things, this is their job. This however does not prove a thing.

I wish people would stick to facts and leave emotions out of politics. If you don’t like Barak Obama, just say it. It’s OK to do so but it does not make you right.

Blog Guy, you are a super genius. It must have taken alot of work to launch a smear campaign against John McCain, George Bush, the Queen, Hillary Clinton and George Clooney all in one! How can you even be opposing sides to all of them at once?

Thank you ‘Eric,’ for that moment of clarity. Too many Americans are uneducated by the facts and will believe anything that is reported on the news. Educate yourselves and stop listening to smear tactics!

Thanks, Mary K. Actually it’s pretty easy. I just go up to those folks, offer them a stick of pepper gum from a novelty shop, and then get ready to shoot the reaction. It’s a laff riot.

RIGHT ON ERIC!!! I so wish all the crabbies that do not like Obama would say so because of his ideas on handling issues rather than saying he is a terrorist.. Gezz I served on a charity board for 5 years and never knew the guy next to me on that board was a released Sex predator, does that make me one too because I sat it a same room. Weird rational on the part of McCain and Palin for the whole trying to link Obama to the terrorist thing. Shame on McCain. I am voting my heart and mind not fear and panic. We need PEACE NOW!

Wow, Ky, I can’t believe that you would admit to being a sex predator on a public website.

Where’s the photo of McCain when he crashed his plane the first time? Or the second time? What about the third time? I’m not talking about when he was shot down either.
