Not a single comment added to McCain's page by TFers yet?

/I'm disappointed

Great find, subby. I can't stop laughing.

My favorites so far:

I wore this gear on my last golfing trip with Jack Abramoff at St. Andrews in Scotland. Shaved crucial points off my game! Looking forward to visiting there again, as soon as Jack gets out of the slammer.

Wonderful gift for loved ones in sand trapsJune 10, 2008

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Send one to every service member you know who will be stationed in Iraq over the next hundred or so years.


Not what I had expectedJune 10, 2008
Reviewer: rouftop from dk, DC United States
For the past five years I've been mired in sand traps. Golfing has been one long quagmire for me. I had hoped this golf pack would finally provide some needed relief, but alas I am still stuck where I was before, except now the hole is deeper. To make matters worse, my personal finances have been completely screwed up on this wasted purchase.
I thought I'd break out of my rut, but I'm still Bush league.

I like the golf pack, but why no yacht tarp?June 9, 2008
Reviewer: Joseph B. from Cotuit, MA United States
Sure this pack of John McCain labeled shwag is nice, and when I'm out on the course I use it as a subliminal message to remind my caddy that I don't support minimum wage. But what I'm really waiting for is the John McCain yacht tarp. WTF, Johnny Mac, my boat is getting wet! Thank you.


Can someone with web skills mirror this or post screenshots before it disappears?

just wanna say while the thread is young...fell asleep last night with the tv on. woke up to The View. before I turned it off and rolled over, I listened to them argue about McCain...one of them said that since he wants to overturn roe v wade, that won't bode well with a lot of women...hilary supporters

My. God.

This is the funniest thing I have seen in a long time. I'm taking a screen shot and making it my background forever.

Nice find subby.. but why were you looking at John McCain's balls?
 
2008-06-11 12:34:05 AM  
This is the funniest thing I've seen on the innernets in a looooooong time.

"There we were on the 17th green when a bedbug-ridden bearded terrorist leaped from the hole screaming godless gibberish. My pitiful peace-loving liberal partners grabbed their balls and ran, leaving me alone with only my John McCain equipment for defense. I slung my ball bag at his head and leaping atop the mangy rascal jammed my stiff club down his throat, finally finishing him off by jerking my McCain brand divot picker up his misshapen nose. Thank you, John McCain for giving me the courage to fight!"

I am shocked, shocked I say, shocked, that Farkers would so flagrantly abuse Senator McCain's website like this.

Reviewer: Juan Mezcain from Nogales, AZ
The water bottle is good. It holds the water without leaking. However, you have to be able to lift your arms up over your head to squirt it into your mouth and I can't do that because of a war wound I have.

Defective balls June 10, 2008
Reviewer: Charles Keating from Houston Texas United States
I was expecting the McCain balls to fly straight, but the lobbyists must have gotten to them, cause the balls seem to go in random directions based on who's paying for lunch. Maybe they lost the real McCain balls in Iraq, or maybe they slipped in some Richard Nixon balls by mistake.

I've given up the game June 10, 2008
Reviewer: George W. Bush from Washington, DC United States
Senator McCain, as much as you and I agree on just about every policy and decison that I have made, I'm gonna have to leave out on the farm on this one, buddy.

I've given up golf to honor the sacrifice of our boys and girls in the sand trap, and I think it is poor taste for you to dishonor them by selling golf gear

Bettered my game by 7 strokes June 9, 2008
Reviewer: I LOVE MERIKA from Crawford, TX United States
I tell you, my rival took one look at my dainty but STRONG towl, embroidered with the delicate words "McCain '08," and he about fell over. The game was finished before it began. He kept chopping deluxe McBalls into the woods, and I think he got real jealous. I hear he supports that democrat, but he should know, when you gotta play golf, McCain for LIFE! I bet you can't even GET Obama golf gear. And here we have the game elevated to its proper place: right next to "Decision Center" and "Strategy." Somehow, I know Merika will be in good hands.

My friends, trust me, you'll want to snap these up June 9, 2008
Reviewer: Cofer Black from Moyock, NC
I hit the links near my beach home on Hilton Head with an important customer the other day, toting this little item with me, and I got the contract! I've been concerned about business slowing down, what with the Iraq occupation getting so unpopular and all. But my client took one look at my maverick golf support pack, and he was sold! For an investment of 50 bucks, I now hold in my hand a multi-billion dollar, 50 year contract with an option to extend another 50 years. I can't recommend this item strongly enough.

Wonderful Golf Set, Great Success! June 9, 2008
Reviewer: Dr. A.J. McShazzlestein, III, Minister from Church of Gods High Earth, Jewish Catholicism Sect
The game of Golf reminds me of happiest moments making goat milk in West Virginia. With your delicious golf bag I can enjoy most glorious day in slingshot golf attire. I like golfing in the U S and A better than home as it does not smell of burning human wastes in the outside airs. Anyways, I am anxiously awaiting my 15th golf set to arrive so I can celebrate the making of a 1000 goat milks. If I were hulk hogan i too would having make love to my daughter.

Reviewer: Harris Winton from Hilton Head
This product is perfect. The balls play well, and often I think about how I could best show my support for the troops and our war on terrorism while enjoying an afternoon on the links. I know the folks at the club are going to want a set of their own!

Excellent product!! June 9, 2008
Reviewer: Francis Ballsnutstein from Montgomery, AL United States
This is by far one o fthe finest purchases I have made in recent years! I'm thrilled to be participating in history, owning a product labeled with a name of real importance! The quality of said product is truly above and beyond the norm, and is indicative of the pure quality of McCain. I think it's fantastic that I can still golf like Tiger Woods, and not live in misery and sadness over something I have nothing to do with, and I don't even have to complain about it like some pansy on the internet. Life is wonderful, McCain is second only to Jesus. I sure do hope the homes of everyone that votes for Obama gets bulldozed and pushed into Mexico where they all belong : )

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'll be out golfing while the democrats sit at home whining in public forums where no one will hear them! Enjoy your virginity, kids! It's going to last you a lifetime. Oh, and I hope World of Warcraft crashes on you.

Thank You John for the reminder... June 9, 2008
Reviewer: from Northern Minnesota
That we don't need to sacrifice anything...if we don't golf, the terrorists have won. In order to keep the economy strong, we need to support places which purchase pesticides and herbicides...fouling the waters, killing birds...Jesus is returning and he's going to be angry if we're not out golfing in times like these...having dominion over the earth and ruining an otherwise beautiful walk in the woods.

(And let's continue to torture the detainees...remember all the reliable information it elicited from you...maybe we can get them to make radio broadcasts)

Wow! What a great product! McCain is a hero!!! June 9, 2008
Reviewer: Bob Sacamano from Boulder, CO United States
Wow, John McCain is such a maverick! He's totally breaking free from George Bush on this one. How can people honestly say that a McCain presidency would just be an extension of Bush? Bush isn't playing golf in respect for the thousands of soldiers he's sent to death in Iraq, McCain just doesn't give a fsck! He's exactly the kind of leader this country needs. He'll get our country back on the track, starting by bom bom bombing Iran, those godless heathen.

McCain Golf Pack June 9, 2008
Reviewer: Bill Brill from Pensacola, FL United States
I never cottoned to the idea that I should give up my Wednesday golf game just because there's a war on. Our Commander in Chief has already made this sacrifice for us, turning in his clubs out of respect for the 4,000+ families who welcomed home a corpse, rather than their serviceman or servicewoman. So let'shiat the links! And what better way than with a John McCain golf bag? Nothing better identifies you with the wealthy, graying elite than zipping your balls behind the proud McCain brand.

I don't care that much really. I don't like McCain either. But when you're claiming the moral high-ground over McCain (and justifiably so), this type of event doesn't help your cause very much.

At this point, everyone posting there is just a nutjob Obama supporter intent on abusing a system.
