The McCain Girls Return

BY Joshua Levy | Wednesday, June 11 2008

They're back! I have to admit, ever since they were unmasked as phonies a few months back, I've been pining away for the McCain Girls. Those off-by-a-half-note harmonies, off-kilter dance moves, and fantastically bad special effects all had a special charm.

Thankfully, the girls have returned with another classic.

The lyrics are as funny-bad as ever, and the special effects take it up a notch.

I love that "trapped in a box" effect!

Unfortunately for McCain, these appear to be some of the only videos in support of his candidacy, even if they are satires. If actual McCain fans would produce some videos maybe there'd be enough competition to push the girls to the next level.
