FWD: Cindy McCain: Better than Obama and Hillary, and PURTY!

Here's a submission from an anonymous granddaughter who is all too familiar with the Right's forwarded struggles and strife:

I received the following email from my grandmother, who is my #1 source for right-wing propaganda. Past hits include chain email chestnuts like: "I refuse to use the Sacajawea dollar because it doesn't have 'In God We Trust' stamped on it!" and, "The Washington Monument is a symbol of Christian faith and therefore all Muslims should be deported." Et cetera, et cetera. ANCHOR BABIES!!

For your viewing pleasure, I present "Cindy McCain: Better than Obama and Hillary, and PURTY!" I have no idea if any of this is actually true, but given the fact that McCain has called his wife a "cunt" and a "trollop" in public, I imagine she is the better half in this marriage.

---Begin Forward---

Bet you would have never guessed this one! No matter your politics. The media will never tell of this, so pass it on.
There was an article in the Wall Street Journal on Cindy McCain, John's wife. All I ever saw was this attractive woman standing beside John. I was surprised how talented and involved with world problems she is. This is a summary of the article.
She graduated from Southern Cal and was a special-needs teacher.
After her Dad died she became involved with his beer distributing firm and is now the chairwoman. Sales have doubled since she has taken over from her father.
They have a marriage prenuptial agreement, her assets remain separate.
She is involved around the world clearing land mines - travels to these countries on a detonation team and service on their board.
They have a 19 year old serving in Iraq, another son in the Naval Academy, a daughter recently graduated from Columbia Univ., an adopted daughter in high school, and a son who is the finance guy at the beer firm.
Raised kids in Phoenix, Az rather than Washington DC.(better atmosphere) He commuted.
In 1991, Mrs. McCain came across a girl in an orphanage in Bangladesh. Mother Teresa implored Mrs. McCain to take the baby with severe cleft palate. She did so without first telling her husband. The couple adopted the girl who has had a dozen operations to repair her cleft palate and other medical problems.
They have a Family Foundation for children's causes.
She's active with 'Halo Trust' - to clear land mines, provide water and food in war ravaged and developing countries.
She will join an overseas mission of 'Operation Smile', a charity for corrective surgery on children's faces.
She has had two back surgeries and became addicted to pain killers. She talks openly about it which she says is part of the recovery process.
I'm surprised the media is so quiet about her attributes. She sounds more capable than Hillary or Obama. We would really get two for the price of one. A person with business and international experience. John did work for the firm for awhile when he left the Navy. She, however, has the real business experience. Very interesting.

I saw this one making the internet rounds. Talk about your rose-covered glasses. This little email conviently leaves out a few juicy details:

1) Cindy McCain started her affair with John while he was still married to his first wife. I believe that's called being a homewrecker.

2) Cindy was addicted to prescription drugs and was arrested for stealing them to fuel her habit. To make matters worse, she was stealing from a medical charity she ran. Thats right folks, she stole from charity to get her drug fix. Only her money and position kept her out of jail.

Re: Steve's comment...

Well, "better half" is all relative, isn't it?

Hard to say who's the better half of two bits of nasty.

A chunk of that material is actually true, although Steve is right that she's not 100% saintly. However, I always thought it was odd when she was caught passing off food network recipes as her own to make her seem more wifey and accessible when she actually does do a lot for kids, and her openness about fighting addiction is a good story, with whitewashing the unpleasant details a walk in the part for the Republican noise machine. Why invent a new lie when you've already got some good refurbishable truth?
