One More Reason Not to Vote for John McCain

1975_abba_w_swedish_flag.jpgNow that Hillary has dropped out and endorsed Obama (great speech, by the by), we can turn our attention to John McCain: war hero, septuagenarian, cranky old man and … ABBA fan. And proud of it, damnit.

That’s what we’re learning today at the candidate’s new campaign blog, The McCain Report.
Of course, the Abba anthem displayed there, Take a Chance on Me, provides the perfect soundtrack for the headline on the blog: “Take a Chance on McCain.” (This the song that the McCain camp played at rallies in South Carolina and Florida as he was closing in on the GOP nomination.)
And this blog-entry is directed at a very specific audience on this day that Hillary Clinton finally bows to Barack Obama, the Democrats’ candidate : “Attention disaffected Hillary supporters, John McCain is a huge ABBA fan. Seriously.”

I implore you folks not to vote for McCain. Not just because he wants to keep the troops in Iraq for another 100 years, and not just, by his own admission, because he doesn’t know much about the economy, but because this country can not deal with four years of an ABBA loving war hawk.

There’s no justification. It’s just plain un-American, damnit.

No, no, no. You've got it all wrong. This could be the only reason to vote for McCain.

Oh come now, what's not to love about Abba? To be fair, they don't seem like McCain's type. I assumed he'd be more of a Toby Keith or Bing Crosby sort of guy.
