McCain: Snooki might be too good-looking for jail

If one more politician brings up Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi,  some reality show producer is going to get the bright idea to have her run for mayor of Wasilla instead of Levi Johnston.

The latest politico discussing the recently incarcerated "Jersey Shore" star was Arizona Senator John McCain, who casually brought her up during a visit to Phoenix, Arizona radio station KMLE Country 108.

“I have a question for you that I thought about on the way over: Should Snooki go to jail? Or - a question for our listeners - is Snooki too good-looking to go to jail,” McCain queried. “This has given a whole new meaning to our justice system, and I’m kind of leaning towards Snooki being too good-looking.”

Since that revolutionary Twitter chat they had about tanning and taxes – which McCain describes as his “brief moment of fame” – he’s “been worried about what’s going on with her, of course, since I have this attachment.”

He added (again), “I kind of think she might be too good-looking to go to jail.”

How far away do you think we are before someone drafts legislation for pretty police?

    Snooki looks like a cross between Wayland Flowers' puppet Madame and a fire hydrant. So yeah, I guess she's too attractive for jail.

    Anyone who actually thinks this girl is attractive needs glasses and possibly a syphilis test to make sure they aren't losing their poor mind. Not to mention the damned political higher ups glorifying the purely disgusting reality that these complete imbeciles have a t.v. show about how stupid and ugly they are and make millions they blow on tanning, waxing and make up while the country is struggling to feed it's good hearted hard working families. The American public who support this by watching and tweeting and paying into it and the politicians who choose to make news of it prove that we are circling the drain as a culture and a country.

    But why is it that everything is used by McCain as an excuse to extend tax cuts to rich people?
    I'm really tired of his obsession with helping rich people get richer.

    Now that's a visual I didn't need! On either part (Snooki is UGLY AS SIN – don't really think she's hominid; maybe a cow that taught herself to walk upright!) And, somebody take McCain's viagra away. Yikes!!!!

    Gotta love McCain!

    At least he didn't refer to Snooki in a press conference and then act like he had never heard of her a month later, like a certain unqualified President of the United States did.....

    – he’s “been worried about what’s going on with her, of course, since I have this attachment.”

    And here I thought it was his hip he had replaced.

  23. scroo yoo

    1.has he had his eyes checked lately? she looks like a cross between golem and an oompah loompah

    2.what trivial nonsense.glad he was never elected for more than one reason

    3.If she is too pretty for jail,no one would be locked up.

    4.seriously,if she is too pretty for jail,why did i ever get arrested?

    at least I can say he actually knows what being locked up is,unlike a lot of politicians.I have no ill will against mccain-his wife and daughter are idiots,but mccain himself is just old

      You folks forget that McCain was a Navy pilot. He just runs around with tail hook deployed. That is how we got paling Palin as his running mate. Once a letch, always a letch.
