John McCain, Abba fan:
“Now look, everybody says, ‘I hate ABBA. Oh ABBA, how terrible! Blah blah blah,'” he said. “How come everybody goes to ‘Mamma Mia?’ Huh? I mean really, seriously, huh? ‘I hate ABBA, they’re no good, you know.’ Well, everybody goes. They’ve been selling out for years.”
This is unacceptable. Strangle the First Amendment with campaign regulation, betray our sovereignty and undermine the rule of law with amnesty for illegals — OK, we can find reasons to overlook these things. But Abba? I could think of groups more execrable, but Gary Lewis & the Playboys are so unspeakably wretched that nobody even bothers to hate them anymore.
