The Best Fake Blog or the Worst Real One? Ever.


I realize that I am a bit late to the party that is McCainBlogette.com: Musings and Pop Culture on the Political Trail, authored by Sen. John McCain's daughter Meghan (with "photos by Heather"), but this site is either the most brilliant satire of all time, or the worst blog of all time. Currently at the top of the page:

Today began with one of the most memorable and unique town halls of Dad's campaign, held at the Toyota Arena in York, Pennsylvania. For the first time, Jay drove the "Straight Talk" right into the middle of the packed hall and Dad, U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman and former Governor Tom Ridge exited the bus into the cheering crowd of more than 3,000 people to start the town hall. It was such a cool entrance and an amazing event! I had a great time watching it unfold from the front seat of the bus. It was also fun spending most of the day with Senator Lieberman, one of the nicest and most genuine people I've ever met. Tomorrow we head to Michigan…

The site is heavy on pics with minimal captioning (Meghan, author of the forthcoming children's book, My Dad, John McCain, notes at one point that "They played 'Eye of the Tiger' as the bus entered the arena") and evokes the studied banality of an Andy Warhol movie and the awshucksitude of Little Billy subbing for Bil Keane on a Family Circus bender

Here's a photo titled, "Starting the day with a hug from Senator Lieberman."

And here's one called "Check out this little boy's tie":

Highly recommended.
