The McCain campaign is dismissing something as "scare tactics and deceit"? Here's a new bumber sticker: "McCain '08 Do as we say, not as we do".

Freaking hypocrites...

Also, is it just me or is Tucker Bounds a complete douche? Actually, between him and Tucker Carlson, a strong case can be made that all Tuckers are douches.

This man is so sad, he makes Dana Perino look dignified and honest.

Brandon --

You may have something there.

Throw in that hyper-douche Tucker Max and you've got the trifecta.

i want to make a movie called, "tucker bounds", starring burt reynolds in the title role. think "smokey and the bandit" meets "all the president's men", with a touch of "left behind" and "slapshot".

i've never seen this bounds fellow, but it's an awesome name.

Celery,

Do you remember the kid in high school that got shoved into lockers? Give him a microphone and that's pretty much what Tucker looks like. You'll recognize his sound bites since they pretty much consist of "I know you are, but what am I?" rebuttals. I've taught 8th grade debaters that handle a cross-ex better than this guy.

Chez, I'm not familiar with Tucker Max. Got any links or stories about him? I could google it, but my planning hour is almost up :)

Chez said...

I can't bring myself to link to him here. Just Google him. He's seriously -- I shit you not -- the world's most mammoth douchebag.

He makes Dane Cook look like William F. Buckley.

I'm really starting to suspect the McCain campaign of simply being the latest comedic brainchild of the producers behind the Daily Show and the Colbert Report. No campaign could be this consistently ironic without it being deliberate.

Fun fact: Other names the Bounds considered for their son Tucker include Basshole, Turkoff, and Imacompletegoddamnprick Bounds the Third.

Thank goodness it's not just me that thinks that the name Tucker is only given to complete and utter dick heads. How did their parents know when they were born? Well, they just looked around at themselves and what else could they have named them? Or maybe it was the fact that they were born without testicles.

Chez,

I just read about him on wikipedia. After seeing "internet personality" as one of the primary descriptor, I banged my head into a wall. After reading that he has a book and upcoming film career, I jumped out of a window without opening it.

Another example of an asshat profiting from his douchbaggery. I'm glad I spent all of those years remaining somewhat respectable so that I can have a job in which I make under 40,000 a year and deal with people's children that some choose not to parent. And McCain wants more of my money for his corporate wellfare program.

I'd suggest that Dane Cook and Tucker Max have a douche-off, but I don't want either to be any more popular than they already (undeservingly) are.
