Twitter is so random. Sometimes it's tiresome, and sometimes it's awesome. Like how it connected Jersey Shore tannaholic Snooki with Sen. John McCain, of the Straight Talk Express.
In a preview for the new season of her show, Snooki expressed her deepest feelings about the health care bill -- specifically, the federal tax on tanning salons -- commenting,
"I don’t go tanning anymore because Obama put a 10% tax on tanning," she said. "And I feel like he did that intentionally for us."
"McCain would never put a 10% tax on tanning because he’s pale and he’d probably want to be tan."
McCain's daughter, Meghan, mentioned the comments and suggested he respond on Twitter. He did!
@Sn00ki u r right, I would never tax your tanning bed! Pres Obama’s tax/spend policy is quite The Situation. but I do rec wearing sunscreen!
Yup. Reached out to Snooki AND name-dropped her castmate, Michael "The Situation" Sorrentino.
And to bring it all full-circle? Meghan interviewed Snooki for The Daily Beast. But it doesn't look like Republicans should look for a blanket endorsement from the bronzed one.
To be honest with you, I’m not really a Republican or a Democrat. I actually signed up as an independent, just because I don’t want to pick any side and also I don’t really know a lot about politics. I only know politics about, like, you know, tanning and being a Guidette. So when I saw it was Obama and McCain, to be honest with you, the only reason why I voted for your father was because he was really cute and I liked when he did his speeches.
Nice. Straight talk from Snooki, for sure!
