John McCain pushes Cindy to compete in “essentially a topless beauty pageant. And occasionally bottomless, too.”

Sam Stein gave us the heads up about McCain’s appearance in Sturgis, South Dakota:

On Sunday, the McCain campaign announced that the Senator will participate in the Sturgis Rally 2008 at Buffalo Chip in South Dakota, an annual tribute to American veterans. The event is up the Arizona Republican’s wheelhouse, attracting thousands of active duty and former servicemen, many who have a natural affinity towards the Senator.

But it is hard not to notice the evocative, non-political sideshows that will literally surround McCain’s speech. As the presumptive nominee takes the stage, the “Ringin’ Wet & Wild” women’s wrestling event will be taking place on the main amphitheater. Two hours before then, the “Miss Buffalo Chip Beauty Pageant – Bikinis on the Beach” will be staged at a different venue. That affair is described by ESPN’s Jim Caple as “essentially a topless beauty pageant. And occasionally bottomless, too.”

John McCain did show up in Sturgis — and suggested Cindy compete for that same “Miss Buffalo Chip”:

Talk about family values. Pimping your wife’s breasts for votes seems like a pretty cheap trick. Not than anyone would ever hold John McCain accountable for suggesting his wife enter a topless beauty pageant. Although, one wonders what James Dobson, McCain’s Catholic guru Deal Hudson and the other theocrats think of this.
