Sassy Teenager Makes Fun of McCain at Alma Mater
John McCain's Straight Talk Express rolls on with Day Two of his "Service to America" tour, where he goes and visits the ol' Prohibition-era haunts of his childhood (like old, depressed men do in movies). WALNUTS! went to his alma mater -- the elitist Episcopal High School -- in Virginia today. All of the students had to attend and watch him reminisce about towel-slapping his pasty racist friends in the steam room after a rowdy match of Kick the Can. Then one student had the nerve to ask what the hell this crap-on-a-stick biography tour had to do with them, and WALNUTS! naturally got fresh with the ingrate.
Episcopal junior Katelyn Halldorson called his bullshit, and for that she is Wonkette's High Schooler Who Harasses John McCain Of The Day. We would like to hand out this award more often, so high schoolers (if you're allowed to read this blog!) take note:
"I think judging by the amount of press representatives here and also by the integration of your previous political endorsements in your earlier personal narrative, we can see that this isn't completely absent - er political motivation isn't completely absent," [Halldorson] said. "Yet we were told that this isn't a political event. So what exactly is your purpose in being here - not that I don't appreciate the opportunity, but I'd just like some clarification."
"I knew I should have cut this thing off. This meeting is over," McCain joked, before launching into a long description of his biography tour and it's emphasis on "the values and principles that guided me, and I think a lot of this country in the past." He said he also hoped to provide voters with "a vision of how I think we need to address the challenges of the future."
McCain concluded the visit by saying, "I hope that attendance here was not compulsory...I apologize if you were unwillingly in attendance here."
They were all forced to be in attendance, it turns out. Then again, John McCain was forced to be in attendance at the Hanoi Hilton for five years. Because he was tortured! In the War!
