You Cun't Say That on Television


I wish I could add something to the clip below, but not only can I not make it any funnier than it already is -- I can't put a finer point on just what it says about both the mainstream news media's velvet-gloved treatment of John McCain and its spinelessness in general (especially when compared to the kind of no-holds-barred coverage that's become synonymous with quite a few internet outlets).

This is the latest video from the satire troupe Public Service Administration, and it's in reference to McCain calling his wife Cindy a "cunt" in front of a flock of reporters back in the 90s.

Didn't hear about that?

I'm shocked.

Chez you're going to get me fired for randomly bursting into fits of laughter in an otherwise quiet and sheltered environment!

Boo said...

I want to make cunt babies with each and every one of those funny ass cunts.

BV said...

I'm John McCain, and I approve this cunt:

It was huge news when Jane Fonda announced it as the name of a musical on some talk show.

Chez said...

Secret about me?

I'm a big fan of women who not only aren't afraid to use the word cunt, but who call their own that as opposed to a "pussy."

Guess I'm just dirty that way.

This probably surprises no one.

Chez said...

For the record by the way, I think it's much funnier that he called her a "trollop."

It also goes a long way in highlighting the fact that McCain was born some time around 1918.

Can't wait to try Cindy McCain's famous recipe for cuntcakes.

you're HILARIOUS! consider this blog BOOKMARKED :-)

The best is part is that I now have the perfect excuse to think about Cindy McCain's cunt. I bet that shit is smooth as an egg and tight as a fucking drum. Hate sex with a big (and thus by definition, scary) black dude half her husband's age? She'd probably shatter my pelvis.

Harris said...

Damn, I was so enraptured by thoughts of Cindy's Red Snapper I forgot to change my screen name.

Robo said...

Trollop...that's fucking rich.

I am now going to incorporate that in my regular vernacular.

Also, my fiance uses "Cunty" quite frequently when decribing some woman's shitty (aka Fairfield County*) attitude.


*For those that don't know Fairfield County in Connecticut is the second richest county in the CUNTry and is full of Cunty cunts (both men and women).

Riles said...

Dude, didn't you coin the "No Cuntry for Old Men" phrase/title/dealy? That was my favorite heading so far on DXM.

Chez said...

Tracer --

You're a fucking GOD.

There was that whole news story earlier this week about Fox News (surprise!) referring to Michelle Obama as Barack's "Baby Mama", and some commenters on this website I was on said "Well, she brought it on herself by referring to Barack as her "baby daddy". Soooo...can we call Cindy "Cunt" now because John McCain brought it upon herself by calling her a cunt?

Oh god, I love you guys so much.

John McCain himself told me this joke: "Did you hear? Cindy went fishing with five men. She came home with a big red snapper! Seriously she dresses like a trollop, the cunt." So yeah, I already knew all that.

And, if y'all American's elect McCain to be your next president, well it aint gonna be so funny then is it.

So laugh away, make rude gestures and utter profanities and when he gets in power who's going to be the cunny funts then eh?

Thort so.

Really miffed..just tried to view the video and it's come up as "no longer available"...

the doctor said...

All that came to mind is Daniel Day Lewis saying cunny juice in Gangs of New York

That was hilarious, but I thought the story was pretty well all over the place. I cringed a little telling my 78 year old dad. Also, my husband of 22 years just dumped me and I'm fucking a new guy. I love the word "cock", but "cunt"? Really? Oh, welcome to dating in the '90's I guess!

RottweilerTOM said...

A RICH CUNT, which is why she's cunty.

Michael J. West said...

God knows I think McCain is a fucking useless old lump who's busily selling his soul in exchange for the White House. So with that in mind, please consider me "Devil's Advocate" rather than a McCain apologist.

Is there any substantiation, other than Cliff Schecter's book, for McCain having called his wife a cunt? One would think that at least one of these three anonymous Arizona journalists who Schecter sources would have a tape recording or even video of it.

It's entirely possible that he really said it but I'd sure like to see some more evidence before I take it as fact. As it is, this is awfully close to hearsay and innuendo - and isn't that the kind of thing we want the American press to report LESS of?

Who hasn't called their wife a cunt in public?
If there's any upside to being a senator, I would think that would be it.
When I vote for president I'm looking for someone with enough courage to call a spade a spade, and a cunt a cunt.

Also, post traumatic stress is a big plus.

Hello,

Redneck Retard here.

I guess I deserve a medal for me hot diggity southern draaawl, but the point I was trying to make was that, we over here in the rest of the world see McCain as a redneck freak akin to hanging out with Dubya shootin' whatever that happens to strike a nerve with my southern, sorry I meant, redneck mentality, or lack there of...

McCain's really scary and with a temper like his do you want him controlling your nuclear arsenal?

Shit no!

But the sad thing is that he's actually a contender and worse thing that could happen to us all is that he'll actually get elected.

Then we'll all be royally cunted. (sorry I had to add that somewhere)

Anyway yadda yadda yadda. I just hope dat he don't get elected like 'cause it gonna be real bad.

RR

p.s. even for us dumb white hick folks.

Chez said...

Bless you, sir.

@ Michael J. West

Your point is a good one; there is no real sustantiation of the "cunt" comment.

However, to be the devil's advocate in turn, given McCain's well-known habit of using foul language to denigrate people he's mad at...and the fact he told a nasty joke about Chelsea when she was still a teen (something about "Why is Chelsea so ugly? Because her father is Janet Reno.")...and the fact he left his first wife for beer disribution heiress Cindy...plus the fact he didn't refute the cunt comment when asked point-blank at a town hall meeting if he had said it even though it would have only required an "of course not" instead of the more wordy scolding he gave the reporter (it's an admittedly wise move of course NOT to deny it if he isn't absolutely sure someone doesn't have a recording of the comment stashed away)...

...well, none of this proves he said it, but circumstantial evidence certainly paints him as someone likely to have said it.

Meanwhile, the best the Obama enemies can come up with is Michelle Obama supposedly using the term "whitey" at the pulpit even though she reportedly never spoke at the pulpit in that church...ever.

I tend to believe that he called his wife a cunt. For whatever my opinion is (or probably isn't) worth

This was utterly delicious Chez. It made my cunt spasm.

And you just made my morning, Liz.
