Cindy McCain: Hypocrites in Action

It appears that Cindy McCain is now hitting Michelle Obama on the campaign trail, as evidenced by this recent CNN interview with her, where she defended her comment about "always" been proud of her country, an obvious and and intentional cheap shot at Senator Obama's wife:
As the presidential campaigns of John McCain and Barack Obama tangle over which is unfairly dragging the prospective first ladies into the general election battle, Cindy McCain sent a signal this morning that she's not about to step out of the fray.
The wife of presumptive Republican nominee John McCain stood behind her initial response to Democratic counterpart Michelle Obama's comment that for the first time she was "really proud" of her country. She told CNN's John King that her own remark - that she had "always" been proud of her country - had been a spontaneous response, not a planned attack.
Funny that she mentions that this wasn't an attack, because it appears that she then tries to go in for the sympathy after bashing Mrs. Obama, she then brazenly states that wives are offlimits! (apparently unless you want to attack another canidates wife)
Cindy McCain, wife of John McCain, said Thursday the spouses of the presidential candidates should be allowed to have some privacy.
"I do not think that spouses and family members ... are fair game," she told CNN's John King.
Of course, I think we all know why Senator McCain's lovely wife would not want to make poor descisions by spouses and issue in this campaign. But if she continues the pot shots at Mrs. Obama regarding a supposed lack of patriotism (funny, because your husband is the one who wants to continue the disasterous war in Iraq, I guess you love our country and not our soldiers), then perhaps she should be reminded that her past is blighted as well:
In 1989, Cindy McCain became addicted to opioid painkillers such as Percocet and Vicodin,which she initially took to alleviate pain following two spinal surgeries for ruptured discs and to ease emotional stress during the Keating Five scandal, which involved her as a bookkeeper who had difficulty finding receipts. The addiction progressed to where she resorted to stealing drugs from her own AVMT.
Yes, nothing like stealing drugs from a charity to get your kicks. I'm tired of being pushed around by the GOP from a falsee high horse of morality, and if Cindy Hensley wants to go after Michelle Obama based on a quote taken out of context, then be our guest. But you don't need any context to understand the content of Mrs. McCain's character, and I hope the Republicans can understand that too.
