... and told her he liked her TV show:

Looks as though he is edging away from her to me. That's funny.

McCain was thinking, "this'll probably end up in one of those Althouse posts about 'breasts'".

Hey it was just a girl from the neighborhood. He barely knew her.

This is exactly what McCain needs. He should recruit more of his star fans like anna nicole (if she was living) but he should recruit some star power like the liberal illuminati does. it could have helped. But i guess he should have thought about that earlier.

Hey, McCain should drag her out on the campaign trail like he does everyone else.

"Anna-Nicole The Voluptuous Corpse"

Christy, I thought the same thing. I figured he was thinking, "if they catch her on camera smothering me in a hug I'm toast with the wife and my constituents :)"

If she hadn't died she would probably be his VP nom.

Not "God Bless Fishermen", God Damn Fishermen". But maybe that was the other guy.

This doesn't compute.

My image of McCain doesn't include the possibility that he has a favorite episode of Anna's show.

What else is he watching?

The Simple Life?
A Shot At Love With Tila Tequila?

I wonder if he would have picked Palin (without knowing her) if he had spent more time thinking about economics than Anna.

[Of course, I'm thinking bigger picture than the specifics of economics vs. Anna. That is, maybe he'd make a better president if he was in a different position on the visceral vs. cerebral spectrum.]

You all seem to be laughing at Anna but she died rich. Not Obama, quarter-million rich. We're talking multi-nillion dollar rich. Yes her life was a sad circus but she left more to her heirs. Okay, more to her lawyers. And she must be laughing now when you're dissing her and she's the one who ended up in a Supreme Court case of some importance.

As for McCain liking her - he's a combat vet and sees her as just another SAM missile probably looking to take him down. He'll steer clear. His backseater, Cindy, is gonna see to that!
