McCampaign offends Miss Virginia

Kristi Lauren Glakas, three time Miss VirginiaJohn McCain used to be a real ladies’ man, as Rolling Stone told us in this profile. But I think he’s losing his touch. How else to explain the fact that he pissed off a hot chick like Kristi Lauren Glakas, a three-time Miss Virginia?

Now, to be fair to John, it wasn’t him personally. It was the utterly bizarre Nancy Pfotenhauer, a “senior adviser” to Johnny Mac. Nancy Pfot-whatever has been taking to the airwaves to spew various bits of bile in the name of getting the Republican candidate elected.

Let’s think about this for a minute. Beauty paegent contestants aren’t known for their political opinions. They tend to play it safe. While Ms. Glakas isn’t currently paegenting as far as I know, I still doubt she would be offering up opinions if Nancy P had kept her right-wing mouth shut.

When McCain senior adviser Nancy Pfotenhauer divided Virginia into the DC suburbs and “real Virginia,” Kristi Lauren Glakas felt extremely disappointed. Glakas, a recent three-time Miss Virginia title holder and whip-smart University of Virginia scholarship honor student, said the comments were divisive.

“What offended me and made me sad about those comments,” said Glakas, a resident for many years in northern Virginia, “is that I’ve been to every county, every part of this state. What’s best about Virginia is its diversity. The people, the geography. We have every class, every race, an amazing immigrant population… Virginia is the birthplace of America. To say that part of Virginia is not part of the real America is just offensive.”

OK, so she’s “whip-smart” and not just a “hot chick.” I know, that’s rude, I did it on purpose, whatever. But what is this “two Americas” thing? Do these people want to start a civil war? Do they think that comments like these help their candidate? If I didn’t know better I would say that the McCampaign hired the staffs of the Gore and Kerry campaigns from 2000 and 2004. Yes. These people are THAT BAD.
