Viral Videographers Finding Endless Bush-McCain Connections

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


I think the intention of this video is to point out that John McCain and George Bush are so similar that they use the same examples of business success in their speeches. In reality, all it does it illustrate the President’s old-man fashion sense (black socks with presidential seal + rubber sandals) and cause the execs at Crocs to reach for the Tums. Another popular thing ruined by George “Anti-Midas” Bush.

I get to blog about presidential footwear. It really is a ridiculous thing.

Oh, and PS — Bush isn’t the only one who needs new shoes. Maybe BHO could get a pair of these.
