File this one under most unlikely Hollywood friendship ever: Looks like John McCain, the former Republican presidential nominee from 2008, and Snooki, tanning goddess and leopard print lover, are friends. Yup. Buds. Buds that, like, exchange words and stuff. Snooki & John = BFFAE.
OK, so maybe that's a bit of a stretch. But the two agreed on President Obama's tanning-bed tax hike over Twitter back in 2010, and the rest, well, it's history. But just wait -- you'll never GUESS what the Arizona senator said about Snooki after last Monday's debate in Boca Raton!
He said he MISSES her. Yes. Good ol' John McCain MISSES the MTV reality star. And she misses him too! Let's break it down:
"I miss you [Snooki]," McCain told MTV News. "I hope you're happy. I hope everything's fine with your baby and I wish you'd get rid of some of those jerks you're hanging around with."
Ha! That McCain, he has a point, Snooks. Especially now that you have a little meatball of your own. Time to surround yourself with responsible and mature role models for Lorenzo. Less Ron Ron Juice, more movie dates (at home) with JWoww. Not surprisingly, MTV just had to catch up with Snooki to get a response, and she told the senator to come over and visit her, Jionni, and the baby.
I'm sorry, but that's just freakin' adorable. Least likely friendship ever? Hmm, maybe. Next to David Beckham and Snoop Dogg, it's pretty close.
