John McCain has acknowledged Snooki. On Twitter. While referring to The Situation.

Tell me which sentence (fragment) is the worst of the three in that headline.

I know! It’s difficult!

Master of abbreviation John McCain totally @’ed Jersey Shore wax statue Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi on Wednesday afternoon. As you may know, Snooki has taken time out from her janitorial work at a chocolate factory to complain about President Obama’s 10 percent tax on tanning beds. If you didn’t know that…I’m sorry. For everything.

    I don’t even know what to say to this.

    This amuses me in so many ways!

  • Jules

    I wonder if Snooki even knows how to spell “tax”.

    Sen. McCain is fabulous on Twitter! Loved his “Pork of the Day” when they were in committee on budget. If you don’t follow McCain then you are missing out on some great inside info on our government and amusing takes on life in general.

    Isn’t Snooki the reason tanning beds should be taxed?

  • Angela

    Oh please. He obviously has a staffer who tweets for him.

      I think they all do… Republicans and Democrats alike. They’re all old fossils who wouldn’t know what a tweet was if it went up their twat.

    No wonder he lost.

    this is a sign of the Apocalypse. I’m sure of it.

    • Cheryl

      You’re so right henninggirl. I’m scared.


    You go, John McCain. THIS is how you Twitter.

    Too bad John already had malignant melanoma…

    Thanks for pinging for clarification. My intention was to say that Mountain View was on fire in July, but if you’re looking to put your home on the market *today*, you should be careful about your number because buyers are more uncertain now.

    (Just like higher numbers at the pump, people will get used to the higher percentages. It’ll take some getting used to though.)

    The line I would emphasize to them is, “Sellers are confident because of this disparity [ed. low CDOM number], but we’re moving into a slower part of the Silicon Valley market cycle in a period of uncertainty with mortgages.”

    I’ll update the first line to make it more clear and I’m going to add a comma between “cycle” and “in” in the last sentence because there are two separate ideas there.
