Pimping The 'Straight Talk Express'

John McCain has several "Straight Talk Express" buses, the first of which was purchased on eBay in Aug. 2007. Learn this and several other details in a "McCain Cribs Exclusive" video:

The video, complete with cheesy a rock-and-roll music track, is hosted by Davis White, the McCain director of advance, who shares several details about the bus.

-- It is 45-feet long.

-- It has a 550-horsepower engine "powering the campaign."

-- The bus's eight wheels have 22-inch rims. "Take that Hollywood."

-- The bus driver is Jay Fryerson, of Columbus, Ohio.

-- Inside, the bus has a 36-inch flat screen television.

-- The refrigerator is stocked with Coca Cola, water, coffee, and cream.

-- The back of the bus, "the heart and soul of the campaign, where McCain sits with reporters, is equipped with table microphones to record "any kind of gotcha moments."
