Cindy McCain’s Gotta Be DYING Inside
Zeroing in on the body language of Cindy McCain

Editor’s Note: The following is one Betty’s opinion. BettyConfidential.com welcomes all opinions and doesn’t endorse any

Ok … what is up with the fact that John McCain rarely – barely – EVER looks at his beautiful wife (hmm … reminds of a movie I just saw, The Duchess)?
Did you see the McCains on THE VIEW – Sen. John, why did you look down on the floor when your wife spoke about how she disagreed with Gov. Sarah Palin on the abortion issue?
(watch at about the 3 minute mark)
Did you see the last two debates? It was almost as if Sen. John was surprised and completely disappointed when he bumper car(ed) into his wife instead of — yet – another ordinary person he COULD have been shaking hands with at that moment (damn … a missed opportunity for another vote).
While everyone is focusing in on the political speak at the debates, and who said what, when, where, why, how … blah, blah, blah (followed up by “that’s not true” or “I did NOT vote for that; that is SIMPLY false” by the opposing campaigner), I zero in on Cindy McCain. Yeah, that’s right, Cindy McCain.
While many of us frankly are – envious – of what appears to be the
PERFECT marriage between Michelle and Barack Obama, and their PERFECTLY matching children (sugar me pretty!), I ponder Cindy McCain.
Why does this woman STAND by this MAN?
For the record: I am voting for McCain (in part because of Sarah Palin, in part because of my taxes).
Let’s state the facts: She is BEAUTIFUL, has a FABULOUS sense of style, is RICHER than all of us (“how many houses do I own?”), and clearly has the smarts to run her family’s business. Oh, and she pretty much is a single mom to her biological and adopted children since her husband is probably never home. Does the GREAT Senator ever see his kids?
So, why-o-why does this woman stay with this man?
I can’t answer this; nor can anyone else but John and Cindy McCain. I feel sorry her. I watch them, and I transcend back to a 1950s household of a make-believe-mom standing in front of a steamy, hot stove (of course, draped with a crisp white apron over ONE perfectly coiffed dress). Betty Friedan wrote about the Cindy McCain-types in The Feminine Mystique, and we exited out of this way of life about 30 years ago — didn’t we?
Anyway, I hope for Cindy McCain’s sake she is happy – perhaps finding happiness somewhere else (no, I am not suggesting anything here, so don’t e-mail me with your evil comments). I just think the woman deserves more – like a husband who looks at her.
If you enjoyed this, I’ll be back. My next piece: Inside the heads of John McCain and Barack Obama when they shake hands and have to stand next to each other … What are they thinking? Hmm …
