Who's That Hot Lip-Smacker? It's McCain (& a Palin Sandwich!)

Who's That Hot Lip-Smacker? It's McCain (& a Palin Sandwich!)

John McCain=Master Make Out Maverick. Oh, yes my friends, it's true. I'm not usually one to talk about "things we were just talking about at the office," but this debate actually comes up not infrequently (was John McCain hot as a lad or not) and this story could just settle the debate in the affirmative. While John McCain attended his 50th Naval Academy reunion Saturday, he and his mates reminisced about “vices sailors are infamous for” including one down-and-dirty dalliance with a Brazilian woman, who's now come forward with the juicy details of the hookup.

The woman in question, Maria Gracinda, bedded the young and carnally indulgent McCain and has this to say of the midshipman’s. . . technique: “He was tasty, loving, and romantic. He was such a good kisser that I had to purchase a book which taught me how to kiss to keep up with him.” Can't believe she's talking about the same McCain? Maybe this will help convince you. When asked about how he was at the horizontal salsa, Gracinda added: “... He was not only good at kissing, he was good at everything.”

McCain mentioned the whole affair in his book Faith of My Fathers though ever the gentleman, he declined to name the woman behind the short dalliance that “... our youthful impatience and short attention spans brought an end to our affair.” Many years later McCain still paints the affair as: “. . . in my memory, embellished with age of course, among the happier experiences of my life.” And Gracinda views the hookup fondly too, saying that if McCain wins she'll send him a special message, "from his great love in Brazil."

Thinking about the relative "tastiness" of McCain? Sarah Palin may have him beat with a special sandwich named in her honor. To see what's in it,


The Lion's Den restaurant in Midtown Anchorage has a new offering on the menu: the McPalin Grilled Pig Sandwich. Inspired of course by the lipstick on a pig comment, the 'wich is grilled pork tenderloin on it, with caramelized apples, red onions, melted cheddar cheese, and crisp bacon, complete with an adorned bun with a pig face. What comes with? Oh, just your average side of fries and your very own tube of lipstick.

you have to laugh about the whole mccain story - it's kind of funny -cause it means that you have to go back and think about what he was like when he was that young and how military guys were all about getting women and that sort of thing. i love it - and i think that it's definitely funny! it makes him more human ya know? as for the palin sandwich - well...i didn't expect anything otherwise - so that's kind of par for the course.

How do you really know if someone is or isnt sleeping around?

Ahhh, okay, I was just confused.

No, because he's not sleeping around. (Which is a joke, hence the wink.) I'm voting for Obama because I agrees with his stance on the issues. And I'm actually sick of discussing it. Hurry up and get here Nov. 4th!!!!

You're voting for Obama because McCain and Edwards don't have perfect marriages?
supercharger5150 supercharger5150 8 years
I'd like to say that MANY if not all previous presidents have had affairs before, during or after their time in office. The press knew it, cabinet knew it, probably even family- it just wasn't brought to the forefront like it is today. I believe that a man (or woman) should be judge the same for the same act. Both McCain and Edwards have done disloyal, hurtful things in ways of marriage. That's why I'm voting Obama and always have. ;)

Yes I agree that it is not right to attack one candidate about their personal life decisions then go back and defend another because they are your party. That IS what I was trying to say - personal life does not affect my vote. Now -do other people let that sway them -sure -but I think it is a big mistake because everyone makes bad personal decisions every now and then. But yes- I probably should have been more clear but I feel that when people say "personal life" it does imply that it is something affecting them and their loved ones rather than the job. I don't really know how to distinguish between personal decisions that affect the job and those that do not. I am glad we see eye-to-eye here!

I think at the core of what you're saying I agree with you, but to put a blanket on it and say "Their personal life doesn't matter to me" doesn't work either, because there ARE things in their personal lives that DO matter. And maybe I mis-read you, but I hear people saying (And again, YOU didn't say this, I read this into your post and that was probably my downfall) that because Palin's daughter got pregnant out of wed-lock, that her son track had a drug problem and she "allowed" drugs in her house but didn't call the cops on her son and the lot, and it MAKES ME MAD because the same people calling her out for that are the people saying that Clinton was AWESOME and his personal life didn't matter. So to those people I say which is it? Because you can't pick and choose. So if I mis-read you, I apologize.

Also wanted to add that I don't consider drug use and alcohol use as good examples- those are not personal decisions affecting one's family life alone. These DO factor into job performance so yes- I care about those. I use my common sense and considering that many politicians regardless of party are unfaithful - no- I really don't let that factor into my decision. If you do -that is obviously your choice.

No what I am saying is that what affects their PERSONAL life should not be used against them. I don't care that McCain left one wife for another and cheated on his first wife for her. I think that makes him a jerk but I don't let that affect my views on his ability to lead. I focus on candidate's policies and I listen to how they debate and I take their record into account. No I don't let their personal decisions affect me- especially when they are personal to their families. Their choices that affect running the nation are what matters to me. It seems to me that you are trying to misinterpret my comment and really cause an argument. And yes- doing something that is blatantly illegal IS a problem for me. And your personal views on pot vs. alcohol has no bearing on my point - the truth of the matter is that no job out there that I know of allows employees to drink while at work so yes- a drunk President would be a problem as would anyone who arrives drunk on the job. I am not sure what your points are getting at Mykie.
Mykie7 Mykie7 8 years
So just because it's not ILLEGAL to cheat, that makes it A-OK? You're telling me that juggling a wife, an affair and trying to run the country, that NONE of that affects the presidents job. It's illegal to smoke POT but it's legal to drink ALCOHOL. Frankly, I'd rather have a pot head than a drunk for my president. So what you're saying to me is if a president is a pot smoker, you'd be upset because it's illegal, but if he's an active alcoholic you wouldn't because it's legal?

Hmm, my comment got flagged... Do you think it was it for the word icky or evoking images of Donatella Versace?

Y'know, if the Brazilian spitfire did spend time in the sun like the women in the picture accompanying this kind of icky post, she probably looks something like Donatella Versace now...

I don't see anything wrong with using the oval office to receive oral sex from a subordinate employee.

Why are my comments getting cut off!! I was saying UD- I agree with that quote. Just saying that if he told the truth he was still in trouble. Mykie- seriously? Dealing drugs is ILLEGAL. Cheating on your wife is not.

". But frankly- I still hold that I don't care what they do in their personal lives as long as they can run this country." So by this logic, if he's a drug dealer but it doesn't affect him being president it's OK by you?

If he hadn't lied about it, they would have found another way to get him. Treason, maybe?

"The lying about it was a gift to the Republican party, because it provided an avenue for the impeachment proceedings." <--yup. I think it was a bad call but really do think either way he was kinda well for lack of a better term ...screwed.
geebers geebers 8 years
I refuse to get into the Clinton argument - I think if he told the truth he would have been driven through the mud just as he was when he lied. But frankly- I still hold that I don't care what they do in their personal lives as long as they can run this country. Whether McCain has been a playboy or not- or whether he cheated or not- or even if he is a terrible husband- I don't really feel that is anyone's business. I felt the same with Clinton.

Harmony - I hear what you're saying, and the Republican party at that time would've tried to make it an issue, but it was consentual, so they wouldn't have been able to go anywhere with their rage. The lying about it was a gift to the Republican party, because it provided an avenue for the impeachment proceedings. Now that I think about it, Maybe Clinton didn't wreck his wife's campaign on purpose. Maybe he just steps in it naturally.
