Cindy McCain Goes on 'The View'


First Lady hopeful Cindy McCain sat down with the ladies of The View yesterday–perhaps in an attempt to redeem her alleged recipe theft.

So far there are no videos of Mrs. McCain getting into a spat with Whoopi Goldberg, the show’s token democrat, or braiding Elizabeth Hasselbeck’s hair. There is, however, a clip of comedienne Chelsea Handler jabbering on about drinking heavily, sleeping with redheaded men, and showing she doesn’t know much about politics as Mrs. McCain sits less than a foot away and and laughs nervously.

If you don’t feel like watching the 6 minute, 45 second video, just skip to 5:35 when Ms. Handler bonds with Mrs. McCain over their shared affinity for older men. Ms. Handler then asks if Mrs. McCain is serious about her marriage.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
