McCain Irony

Wednesday I watched the movie "Wedding Crashers" for the first time ever. I've been meaning to watch it since.. well, I think I wanted to see it when it was in the theaters but decided to wait until it was on DVD – so, 3ish years ago.

What I wasn't expecting to see was a cameo appearance by John McCain. We had to rewind the movie and go back. Twice. And then pause it so I could be sure it was him. Sure enough, John McCain is in the movie Wedding crashers for maybe 4 seconds. It right after the scene where Christopher Walken's daughter gets married, outside the church. And RIGHT after the camera cuts away the next scene shows a Time magazine with Walken's mug on the cover and the caption "The Next President?"

"The Next President?" … Coincidence?

It made me smile. Poor McCain.

    You left off something at the end of your post. It should end, "It made me smile. Poor McCain. Such a dope for letting his campaign managers turn his image into a conservative, fear-mongering, hate machine."

    I don't know that he would have won even if he had stayed "true to himself".. but neither does anyone else. He was ultimately responsible for choosing the campaign managers and for choosing to follow their campaign – I feel no sympathy towards him in that regard. Hell, it's quite possible that that is the "true McCain", the "Maverick", and that it just took awhile for his mask to come off.

    very good points. his poor choice of campaign managers only added to mccain's inept decision-making skills.

    i'm so glad that the "bomb-bomb-bomb-bomb-iraq McCain" did not get elected. Oh, the extreme results we would have had in this election. Makes you wonder what things would be like if Al Gore was president in 2000.
