Barneys Window -- Anti-McCain?

10/24/2008 1:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There's one store potential First Lady Cindy McCain may want to think twice about before dropping any of her beer heir millions ... Barneys New York.
Obama and McCain
The high-end NYC department store's windows currently feature paintings of all the First Ladies of yore and include portraits of both Michelle Obama and Mrs. McCain. While all the works by artist Laurie Munn were made to the women's general likeness, Cindy's looks uniquely ghoulish.

So the question -- by putting the pics up, has Barneys not-so-subtly endorsed Barack Obama? We contacted the store -- a little defensive.

A rep said the the pics are an artist's interpretation. We pressed and mentioned it was Barneys decision to plaster the pics in its windows. The rep told us to go talk to the artist, adding, "We do not take any political stance."

What you fail to mention is that Cindy McCain looks like she has had more plastic surgery than I don't know what! The skin on her face is so tight it looks like is she smiled or showed any emotion it would crack into a thousand pieces. She reminds me of a plastic stepford wife barbie doll! So I think the painting looks just like her!

Don’t Eat the Bad Chocolate: Political Lessons from Childhood

With all the clamoring about due to the impending election, it becomes more interesting by the day to people watch and, more importantly, people listen. Growing by the day are the number of Obama supporters who are quick to proclaim that our battered homeland desperately needs change, and that the complete novice Barry Obama will fit the bill perfectly, since he bases his campaign on ‘change we can believe in.’ It seems that a growing number of our populace are excitably confident that they need Obama as president and that he will satisfy their longing hunger.

This reminds me of a childhood phenomena that virtually everyone can recall, largely in part because it was a lesson that one seems unable to forget. From childhood memories we can easily garner essential political lessons which are applicable within the current political environment.

Do you remember as a child, that time you wanted a snack, perhaps something sweet? You went into the kitchen where mother was cooking and asked her for something to cure your growling tummy. Mom probably said something like, “okay let’s see what we can find.” She opened the pantry doors and you peered in at all the food stuffs that filled the shelves. See might say, “how about some raisins?” To which you would shake your head gently in the negative. She might then say, “how about some oatmeal?” To which you shook your head savagely and proclaimed “yuck!” Then she may have said, “how about some popcorn?” To which you replied, “No mommy, I want some candy!” Mom then would mill around the cans of peas and bags of flour and finally say, “I’m sorry sweetheart, but mommy doesn’t have any candy.” But it was too late. Your eyes had already played a cruel joke on you, perhaps the cruelest of your life up until that moment. You were about to experience something that you would never be able to forget, no matter how hard you would try in the many years that would follow. Your eyes had landed on a big bar of chocolate! It somehow seemed to shine in the florescent light, virtually beaming, calling out for you to try it. Your eyes glazed over and your lil’ tummy rolled with hunger. You were certain that this was just what you wanted. You were certain that this would take care of your craving and without reservation, would satisfy you completely. You had to have it. Nothing else would do.

You screamed as you pointed to the chocolate, “Mommy, Mommy, Chocolate!” Your mother picked up the bar of chocolate and looking at it said, “No sweetheart, you don’t want this.” You began to jump up and down, fists clinched yelling, “Yes I do mommy, that’s what I want, I WANT CHOCOLATE!” Your mother then said, “No you can’t have this.” You stopped and gave her a bit of a scowl, then immediately put on your sad face and tenderly asked, “Please mommy…. Please?”

Your mother then looked down at you and said, “Darling this chocolate is leftover from when mommy made your birthday cake, you won’t like it, it’s bad.” Thinking back to that glorious birthday when you blew out the candles on that chocolate cake, you remembered how good it tasted as you sat there in your little birthday hat with chocolate icing across your cheeks while you smacked your lips as you ate. Mmmmm that tasted goooood. Now you knew you had to have that chocolate. You grew insistent, jumping up and down again, “Please, Mommy, Please?”

Your mother then knelt down and said, “See sweetheart, this chocolate is just for cooking”. Pointing at the label she read, “BAKER’S CHOCOLATE.” You smiled merrily and pointed to it and proclaimed with a giggle, “See mommy, chocolate!” Your mother then said, “You won’t like this chocolate sweetie, it doesn’t have any sugar in it, it’s very bitter, it tastes nasty, it’s badddd chocolate.” You then responded, “No mommy, I love chocolate!” Your mother then retorted sternly, “This chocolate is very bad and it will make you sick.” You then resorted to your greatest weapon of all, the Turbo Temper-Tantrum! You lowered your head, squinted, raised your eyes upwards at her in discontent, took a deep breath and, holding it in, began jumping up and down…. now as a matter of protest rather than excitement. Your mother, being all to familiar with this state of affairs, immediately shot up and looked back down at you in displeasing authoritative fashion. It was suddenly obvious to you that you had struck a nerve with her and you immediately began to fear that she was about to retaliate.

Then suddenly, a smile arose upon her face suggesting that she was, instantly, at one with the u

Hahahahahahahaha!

Like I said in a previous post, "Cindy McCain looks like she's one botox injection away from being carted off and displayed at Madam T's Wax museum in Times Square." Too damn funny!

Come on.... EVERYONE and EVERYPLACE is biased towards Republicans right now. I'm afraid of how much worse it's going to get when that inexperienced unqualified motivational speaker becomes our president. And if I hear one more time how "beautiful" Michelle Obama is, I'm going to hurl. I think she is rather unattractive, to be honest. And that's politics aside.
