John McCain And The Heavy Metal Thunder

Senator John McCain spent what turned out to be an enjoyable day campaigning at a world famous American tradition today - the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally at the Buffalo Chip campground in South Dakota.

“As you may know,” he told the tens of thousands gathered at the 68th annual Sturgis Rally at Buffalo Chip campground, “not long ago, a couple of hundred thousand Berliners made a lot of noise for my opponent. I’ll take the roar of fifty thousand Harleys any day.”

Bikers in the crowd, who had arrived from around the country to partake in the massive outdoor party, revved their engines numerous times in support of the presumptive GOP nominee. McCain said it was music to his ears.

“This is my first time here,” he said, “but I recognize that sound. It’s the sound of freedom.”

As the senator made his way through a sea of motorcycle enthusiasts, shaking hands with the many veterans in attendance and accompanied by his wife Cindy and Sen. John Thune, he was surrounded by scores of beer drinking men and scantily clad women, many of whom were as thrilled to see the war hero candidate as they were to watch Kid Rock perform later in the evening.

McCain, accompanied by his wife Cindy and South Dakota Senator John Thune had a great time working the crowd. If there were any Obama supporters in the crowd, they kept quiet about it.

...McCain felt so comfortable at the event that he even volunteered his wife for the rally’s traditional beauty pageant, an infamously debauched event that’s been known to feature topless women.

“I encouraged Cindy to compete,” McCain said to cheers. “I told her with a little luck she could be the only woman ever to serve as first lady and Miss Buffalo Chip.”

Here's the kicker...this rave of McCain came from CNN, believe it or not. Is a little buyer's remorse on The Chosen One reraring its ugly pointed head?
