Cindy McCain - What I Did On My Summer Vacation ...

I think, when Georgian President Mikheil Sakaasvili, called out her husband, that he wanted more action, less talk, he had something like guns, tanks, bombers, and thousands of troops in mind.

Not his beer distributing, recipe-stealing wife (though, to be sure, fighting ginned-up wars surely builds up a hearty thirst.)

Mrs. Stumblin' Bumblin' McCain, Cindy, apparently thought better of lifting lines from Michelle Obama's speech, is headed off to the land of her husbands' "We're All Georgians", for a "humanitarian" mission, to, presumably, a week before the Republican Convention, build some chops and, a kind of off-the-rack legacy of her own.

Cindy McCain Heading to Republic of Georgia

Cindy McCain, wife of Sen. John McCain, is headed to the Republic of Georgia, where tensions between the government and Russia have sparked international concern and have become an issue on the presidential campaign trail.

McCain announced to a group of fundraisers in Sacramento that his wife was headed to the country, but the campaign did not provide any details about the trip.

McCain spokeswoman Jill Hazelbaker confirmed Cindy McCain is enroute to the nation and said she is visiting as part of the World Food Program. She said she will meet with Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili and visit with wounded Georgian soldiers.

In the Time article, McCain aides denied that the trip was specifically designed to occur during the Democratic National Convention, and specifically on the day that her counterpart, Michelle Obama, is scheduled to speak.
Oooooo-kayyyyyyyy ...

Didn't even realize the Democratic Convention was going on, right?

And how did she get over there - Randy Scheunemann's Frequent Flyer Milage?

She might feel right at home over there.

Likely, due to the conflict, the only way to travel around Georgia might be by private jet.

Or, perhaps, a few of the Sturgis bikers will go with her, and she can tool around the country on the back of a chopper.

Perhaps, like her husband, will she have a security detail of marines, complete with gunship helicopters, escorting her around the Georgian markets?

And, what happens when she returns?
Think, over-the-top, Frank Capra-on-steroids

Does she parachute into the Target Center in Minneapolis, by sheer coincidence, in prime-time hours?

Takes the stage in fatigues ... Tearfully tells her story, ending it with an crowd-out-of-their-seats, wildly, deliriously, cheering, Cindy, stridently, thumping her chest, bellowing above the din, "We Are All Georgians!, as two gigantic flags - the American, and Georgian - unfurl behind her.

A new Lady Republican War Hawk born ...

McCain flubs the name of Georgian President three times

Why Do You Think We've Been Calling Him "Stumblin' and Bumblin"?

Hmmm ... I Wonder If Cindy Kisses His Balls ...
