Do as Cindy Says, Not as She Does

We cried and cried because we thought she was gone forever, but look! It's Cindy! She's off on her "international aid" kick again, and I couldn't be happier:

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Cindy McCain, the wife of the former Republican presidential candidate, resumed her international aid work this week with a stop in Dubai on her way to India and Cambodia to volunteer at maternity hospitals.

McCain, 54, frequently does charity work overseas. The wife of Arizona Senator John McCain is a member of the board of Halo Trust, an international land-mine removal group, and Operation Smile, which provides surgery for children born with cleft palates.


Very nice! Well, I've got nothing bad to say about that. On the other hand, Cindy doesn't really have anything to say about financial crisis:

"The crisis will make Americans look at themselves closer. ... I hope it will, because it is always best when you start at home first," she told The Associated Press. "These are hard economic times ... and everyone, including the humanitarian world, is feeling it."


And by "starting at home," Cindy means, of course, by starting in luxurious Dubai. And by "hard economic times," Cindy is obviously referring to staying at the fabulous Burj Al Arab hotel, where the lowliest broom closet runs $1,000 a night. And Cindy doesn't stay in broom closets.

Don't ever change, Cindy. Wait, I take it back: please change that dress! What are you, Dorothy?

Campaign's over! Back to frump and political insensitivity!

Whee!

Odd comment...it's best to start at home...coming from someone who is going over seas to do charity work. I think it's great she does what she does, but does she do anything charity wise in the U.S.?

To focus, rather than on economic collapse and international philanthropy, on the important things: is it just me, or does that photo make her very oddly proportioned?

It looks like her head is shrinking the way the Big Fat Opera Singer's does in Bugs Bunny cartoons when he mistakenly sprays alum down his throat.

Or maybe its just a side effect of that egregious frock, which also appears to be giving her charwoman's arms.

What's happened to Our Cindy?

That dress is a bit frumpy, but if one simply focuses on her smile and those eyes, it is all ok...

Madduane said...

Wow, that is a weird angle. Her upper arm appears to be as wide as her face.

Princess Sparkle Pony said...

So true, Fran. What was I thinking?

I'm with Fran and Duane on this one. Cindy is starting to look like a 54 year old housewife. Think of her sitting on the couch with Laura and Sarah Palin back at the beginning of the campaign. She looked like a supermodel, super shiny and super slender. The picture was from a distance, but she looked twenty years younger than she does here. Also, that hairdo shows no signs of fabulosity.

She's like Al Gore in 2001. "To hell with all this, I'm gonna get something to eat! Where are the nacho chips?"

It's bon-bons and cafe mochas now for post-loss Cindy!

I wonder: are there any prescription meds to steal from the cleft-palate kids and land-mine removal outfits? Sadly, no--however, volunteering in maternity hospitals will make those medicine cabinet doors swing wide open! Whee!

The Cat's Meow said...

Gosh, if Cindy McCain looks fat in photos now, what hope is there for me?

It's a simple case of mistaken identities, folks. That's Arnolda Schwarzeneggova, the three-time Olympic gold medal-winning shot putter from Russia.

I warned her about wearing sleeves that length. Oh well. Her heart is in the right place.

She's well on her way to becoming the new Barbara Bush, both physically and attitudinally. I'm sure she believes that this "crisis" will "work out very well for them."

The dress gives her a uni-boob there, but the hair is what's really horrifying.

Steve said...

It appears Madoff missed a couple.

Wonder if Cindy got hubby that kitchen table he never had for Xmas?
After all, he is busy trying to fit a whooping tax cut for her into the Stimuless package. How many jobs will she create with that?

"Start at home" . . . which home, Cindy? I have so many!

Who Photoshopped Popeye's arms on her?
And when did "vampire white" become a MAC foundation shade?

samael7 said...

is it just me, or does that photo make her very oddly proportioned?

No, that's a weird angle, as many have commented. I kept looking at it trying to figure out if it was photoshopped.

It looks like she's been seeing a head shrink, only, y'know, literally. Like in Beetlejuice. Kamran Jebrelli, methinks you were too taken with her elbow in that picture.

Keep smilin', Cindy!

maybe she's exacting revenge on Johnny for the Dancing With the Stars veto, "You won't let me dance, I'll wear frumpy clothes and go mid-western housewife on your ass!"

I sure wouldn't want to have a C-section at the maternity hospital in which Cindy is volunteering. She's probably hoovered down all the Vicodin and Percocet and Tylenol-with-codeine on the ward, leaving a trail of those itty-bitty paper cups in her wake.

There is probably not enough alcohol on tap in the beer baronesses' world to get John in a good mood.
He will probably stew for years as 2 attempts at the presidency & they could not even buy the election?
War Hero AND a beauty Queen winking bimbo for VP!
This country has gone to hell.
I'm sure this inspired Cindy to head to the other side of the globe, just to get space.
Real suffering in the US is something Cindy can't see past all the zero's in her bank account-- the one she refused to disclose in the election. Somebody else has to deal with the problems of the country....as witnessed by her comment-- she is in a different world. Screw all that country first crapola.... just election rhetoric!
