2008 Elections: Add Jon Stewart
to the mix of those giving McAncient a little shoe-leather:
Meanwhile, The Eclectic Quill brings you a list of John McAncient jokes along the lines of, you know, why did the chicken ... funny, though.
Speaking of shoe-leather, which we weren't, but hey — anybody catch the story on McAncient's $520 Ferragamo shoes? AAAAGGGHH! What's with that? Oh, yeah, he's got a wife with a $100 million-dollar fortune who thinks the only way to get around the State of Arizona is in a small aeroplane. Love to do that, Cindy, honey, but I can't even afford a new car, yaknow? Meanwhile, the man that John McAncient is attacking as "elitist" only recently paid off his school loans, and here's a snippet about his "elitist" sartorial style:
Moos then played footage of Michelle Obama telling Access Hollywood during a family interview that Obama was wearing ten year old pants and a worn-out belt and hurriedly adding, "Don't pan down to the shoes -- because we've talked about getting new shoes for him."Well, it looks as if Senator Obama has not forgotten his impoverished roots and spends his money carefully. Our parents (who pinched every penny till it screamed before they let it go, having lived through one war and one Depression) would approve.
Obama had told a newspaper last spring, "Michelle has asked me to clean up because when she first met me I had one suit. Michelle always finds this funny because I basically buy five of the same suit and then I patch them up and wear them repeatedly. I have four pairs of shoes. Recently, I've taken to getting a haircut more frequently than I used to because my mother-in-law makes fun of me."
So Mrs. McCain, who thinks the only way to travel around Arizona (unlike the rest of us little people) is by plane, and who owns so many houses she forgets to pay her property taxes for up to four years on one of them, and her husband John McCain who wears shoes that cost approximately six times what we at La Casa de Los Gatos have ever spent on a pair of shoes, want us to believe the man in the patched suit is an elitist. Okay. Stumble It!
