The left are clueless...

It seems McCain attended the biker rally/festival in Sturgis, SD yesterday which, in addition to other things, features scantily-clad women and concerts by Kid Rock and KISS. (GASP!!!!) McCain even joked that he had encouraged his wife to enter the annual Sturgis beauty contest, which the Los Angeles Times reminds us, is "one in which nudity is not uncommon." (GASP AGAIN!)"I told her with a little luck she could be the only lady to serve as first lady and Miss Buffalo Chip" McCain said "with a broad grin.” " Those at First Read MSNBC seemed shocked as well!

Which brought this comment in the post below:

I see you didn't get a chance to post it yet, but I can't wait to hear your reaction to McCain's appearance today at the debauched Sturgis motorcycle festival - with all the public nudity and drunkenness and drug use. Republican hypocrisy heaven.It was an especially nice touch that the "honorable" McCain offered up his wife for the striptease beauty pageant that is the highlight of the day - they call the winner Miss Buffalo Chip. Such RESPECT for women from the right wing hypocrites. But no worry. I'm sure all the Christians will get over it. Without hypocrisy how could they ever have allied themselves with such an intrinsically anti-Christian party in the first place?Sean 08.05.08 - 11:50 am #

Has this guy even heard of Ted Nugent? Does he know that Kid Rock is a Republican that performs for our troops? Does he know that one of the most popular sites on the right blogosphere is Ace, where "scantily clad women" are the subject of about every other post? Does he know that Ace and Allah of Hotair are atheists?

Does the left really believe that the Republican party consists of religious conservatives and nothing else? Good grief. Get a clue guy. We have atheists, libertarians, Librarians, gay, straight, and bi-political. We ARE THE BIG TENT. We don't require people to think one way, be one way, and march in lock step like your party.

Get a clue.

Now this was a shrewd move by Maverick:

When McCain made his way to the stage, he was accompanied by U.S. Sen. John Thune and Gov. Mike Rounds (who wore a black leather vest). The motorcyclists revved their engines in approval and cheered wildly for the Arizona senator.“Thank you, I thank you all very much for that unique Sturgis welcome,” McCain yelled. “As you may know, not long ago a couple a hundred thousand Berliners made a lot of noise for my opponent. I’ll take the roar of 50,000 Harleys any day! Any day, my friend!” The rowdy crowd went wild, cheering their support for the candidate. McCain spoke briefly and then left the stage, making way for musicians Kid Rock and Kellie Pickler.
