Adultery and harassment

A 24-year-old woman talks about the first time she met a 40-year-old married man:
"He kind of chased me around . . . the hors d'oeuvre table. I was trying to get something to eat and I thought, 'This guy's kind of weird.' I was kind of trying to get away from him."
Yeah, that's Cindy Hensley McCain on "The Tonight Show," explaining how she met her husband in 1979, when he was still someone else's husband. They had a 10-month affair before he filed for divorce from Carol Shepp McCain, to whom he'd been married since 1965.

The L.A. Times, out of the thin blue air -- apropos of no legitimate news angle -- decided to run a 1,700-word feature on the Republican's first marriage and 1980 divorce. An unapologetic slime job with no possible justification as news.

It's kind of funny how anyone who raises Obama's Indonesian education (which dates to the same era as McCain's first marriage) is slammed as a smear artist. But 30-year-old news about the Republican's divorce -- hey, that's relevant and timely!

  1. And I am sure you all read where McCain was still married to his first wife (the one he left after she was dis-figured in an auto accident) when he married his second wife (the drug stealing robot with all the money). Sounds like a 'family values' dude to me. Does it sound like that to you all?
