During the ten minute sneak peek of “Jersey Shore” season two, we see the effects the Obama administration has had on our dear friend Snooki’s lifestyle: the girl has been reduced to getting her faux glow with a spray tan.
Among the many revelations that the reality-TV star made within those few minutes – she’s found love with an “amazing gorilla juicehead”; she gets crazy when handed "a bottle of freaking SoCo" – one of them was political.
“I don’t go tanning tanning anymore, because Obama put a 10 percent tax on tanning,” Snooks said after her juicehead sprayed her face with one last coat of self-tanner, just to be on the safe side.
“I feel like he did that intentionally for us. McCain would never put a 10 percent tax on tanning. Because he’s pale and he would probably want to be tan," the pint-sized fist-pumper explained.
McCain confirmed Snooki's assertions in a tweet.
The Arizona Senator wrote, “@Sn00ki, u r right, I would never tax your tanning bed! Pres Obama’s tax/spend policy is quite The Situation but I do rec wearing sunscreen!" To which Snooks responded: "Haha Yes!"
A spokeswoman for McCain told CNN that the Senator thought Twitter would be an "amusing way to respond to her comments." (He's one of the most popular politicians on the social networking site with more than 1.7 million followers.)
Although MTV did tell CNN that Snooki is a fan of McCain's, the network could not confirm whether or not she voted for the 2008 presidential candidate when reached at 12 p.m. ET; Snooki was still sleeping.
