The situation with Snooki, McCain and the Salahis

Okay, I don't know which is more appalling: "Jersey Shore" Snooki talking politics or Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) pandering to her crowd. In case you missed it last week, the overly fake-baked Snooki complained in a scene from the second season of that sociological train wreck that she might have to give up tanning because "Obama put a 10 percent tax on tanning." Raise your hand if you really believe that she would do this.

"McCain would never put a 10 percent tax on tanning," Snooki goes on to say, "because he's pale, and he would probably want to be tan." McCain responded via Twitter: "u r right, I would never tax your tanning bed! Pres Obama's tax/spend policy is quite The Situation. but I do rec wearing sunscreen!" I know McCain has a tough nomination fight against J.D. Hayworth. But joy riding on the outsized attention that comes with Snooki's unending 15 minutes of fame is pitiful.

Speaking of unending 15 minutes of fame, our long national nightmare is not over. Michaele Salahi has finally been outed as one of the "Real Housewives of D.C." Not that this should come as a surprise. When she and her husband, Tareq, crashed the White House state dinner for the prime minister of India, it was The Post's Roxanne Roberts who broke the story of who they are and what they might be up to. Well, now we get to see the whole mess and the aftermath from camera angles provided by Bravo. I won't be tuning in to either show. Life's too short.

Can't Wait for the show.

We all will be watching the Salahi's.

Love or hate in your heart - we all want to know who they are.

Snooki very funny stuff.

lisag1 and her kind should be drawn and quartered and forced to read a book.

To mjwies11:

It's a bit hard to read after you've been drawn and quartered. I sympathize with the emotion,though--and I will NOT be watching.

Arizonans are tired of McCain and his ways. He has time to tweet Snooki but no time to debate JD Hayworth? McCain voted for the billion dollar pork TARP bailouts, co-sponsored Cap and Trade legislation, and received the bulk of his campaign money from convicted Ponzi scheme crook Scott Rothstein and banks that benefited from the TARP bailouts. Now he won't give the Ponzi schemes $1.1 million victims' contributions back, because he wants it for more attack TV ads on JD Hayworth. He has a lifetime rating of only 81% from the American Conservative Union, which sunk to an alltime low of 63 in 2008. JD's lifetime rating is 98. The choice is clear, folks, let's help JD get elected and let McCain retire. Contribute now! http://www.jdforsenate.com/ctt?cttid=80&redirect=contribute
