Radar reported earlier this week that John McCain is attributing his unraveling presidential campaign, in part, to the “gay sweaters” that his staffers made him wear.
According to one insider, the knit-picking was the crescendo of a tirade by the Arizona senator, in which he blistered aides about the minutiae of the campaign. While many septuagenarians live in a perpetual state of sweater weather, McCain reportedly declared his frustration with being told to don the perceived homosexual outerwear in order to look younger and more approachable.
“He wasn’t happy being dictated to. The sweaters were part of that,” the source says.
Internet sensation Bad Sweater Guy takes umbrage at McCain’s homo-purl-aphobic remark, telling FBLA, “From what I have read, many different threads are causing his campaign to unravel. Blaming it on ‘gay sweaters’ is rude to gays. But more importantly, it’s rude to sweaters.”
