fred, there’s something the kids are calling TMI. It stands for TOO MUCH INFORMATION.
I love how the camera cut from thompson after he made this strange comment and panned directly to mccain’s confused (and unhappy I assume) looking mother. Did fred realize the rnc was not rated TV MA? I can hear it all over the country in the 50-100 living rooms that for some reason had this boring ass convention on the TV – “Momma, what’s an exotic dancer?”
Like the laura bush posting from earlier tonight, I am not making this up and will definitely try to find a video of thompson’s awkward comment tomorrow.
The full quote verbatim from tonight’s rnc:
“In flight school in Pensacola he (mccain) did drive a corvette and date a girl who worked in a bar as an “exotic dancer” under the name of Marie – the flame of Florida.”
Yes, he put bunny ears up when he said exotic dancer.
Update 1: While I’ve never heard of mccain’s stripper whore girlfriend – what would jesus do? – here’s a NY Times article from 2000 where mccain states “‘She was pretty volatile. Har, har, har!”
Update 2: Video…
