John McCain in Boob Raunch Fest

Drudge has, sans siren or link at the moment, the banner headline: “SEN. MCCAIN STARS IN BOOB RAUNCH FEST.” One shudders at the thought.

Developing…

Update (1028): As is often the case with Drudge exclusives, there’s not much to this one:

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. — who once held hearings chastising Hollywood studios for producing R- rated fims and marketing them to teens — is now playing a part in one!

Opening this weekend, WEDDING CRASHERS, a movie packed with raunchy moments and bare-breasted beauties bedding down with the guys.

And Senator John Mccain!

Executives at NEW LINE made a deliberate decision to swim against the current and fill the movie with four-letter words and lotsasex.

“In a summer full of sequels and remakes rated PG-13, we feel an original R-rated comedy will stand out,” said Rolf Mittweg, president of worldwide distribution and marketing at the studio.

McCain joked on Tuesday, “Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson and me – we’re all pretty much starring roles.” McCain said he couldn’t resist a chance to appear in a Hollywood movie because “it impresses my kids.”

Ho hum.

    He’s just gotta stop those public appearences with Hillary and Teddy.

    I wish there was less involvement of politicians in pop culture projects, and that there was less involvement of pop culture figures in politics.

    Each has been an increasing trend over the last 20 years, and I think each has added to the cheapening of public service and discourse.

    That said, I agree this particular story is a yawn.

  3. McGehee says:

    In a scene with John McCain, Owen Wilson and one of their female co-stars, a cast member walks in and exclaims, “Hey look! Two boobs and Rachel McAdams!”

  4. Anderson says:

    Maybe it’s to stifle Karl Rove’s “is McCain gay?” tactic in 2008?

  5. McGehee says:

    McCain is gay? [clicks over to Drudge Report]
