Cindy McCain: "The Pills Made Me Feel Euphoric and Free"


Just Say No is apparently only for people of color and kids. Wealthy heiresses? Pass the scrip baby!


The Rude Pundit shares a bit of the story of Cindy's drug use. Cliffnotes version: it was John's Keating Five scandal's fault.

"[M]y pain was more than just physical. The Keating Five savings and loan scandal had just blown up, and my husband was implicated. (I became a focus of the investigation when I couldn't find receipts showing that John and I had reimbursed the Keatings for a vacation we took to the Bahamas.) The first time I ever heard of the Keating Five, I was in the hospital, recovering from my first back surgery. A resident came in, threw a newspaper down on my bed and said, 'Gee, I guess your husband's not so perfect after all.' Throughout the investigation, the painkillers cushioned me. The newspaper articles didn't hurt as much, and I didn't hurt as much. I can remember sitting in the Senate hearings, listening to Howell Heflin saying terrible things not just about my husband but about me. The pills made me feel euphoric and free."


Jesus, imagine if she had a really shitty life. You know, like only having three houses!

randal if Hillary used that rationale she'd have cleared out every pharmacy in metro D.C. during Bill's impeachment hearings.

Naw, that's what 3am couriers are for. Hey, the background is different. I'm so confused.

He dumps his first wife for an heiress twenty years younger than he is, acts as a bag man for a crook, she's a drug addict, he doesn't remember stuff anymore and the election is still too close to call.

What a country!

Howell Heflin was one of our senators for a while and was considered a huge joke. A blowhard, at best.

Sorry Cindy, I do not feel your pain.

"...The first time I ever heard of the Keating Five..."

First time she heard of it? She $400,000 invested in one of the land deals!

I just wonder why she didn't sue that resident for having the temerity to come in, throw a newspaper at her, and bag on her "perfect" hubby. Puh-lease.

Love the graphic, BTW! Far out!

no_slappz, I have asked you to quit posting comments here. No one, including me, reads them anyway.

I have told you that every comment you make will always be deleted unread. This is what I have been doing.

One would think that by now you would have the decency to simply leave from where you are unwanted and unread.

I did not however, expect better behavior from you. Rightwing internet gasbags like you have no manners, decency or common sense.
