Snooki from MTV’s Jersey Shore has been outraged about Obama’s tanning-booth tax. Meghan McCain took it upon herself to interview the pint sized Snooki about her comments and how she feels about her dad, John McCain. Peep some excerpts from the interview.
Meghan McCain: I told my father that you made a comment about Obama’s tanning-booth tax, and he knew who you were, and I was like, “Well, you should Twitter her.” So what did you think when he did that?
Snooki Polizzi: I thought it was pretty frickin’ awesome because I voted for McCain. So the fact that he actually acknowledged like what I was saying about the tanning booth… It was crazy because I never thought, like, what I was saying on the show, that he would actually say something to me. So that was pretty awesome and I’m really happy that he actually knows who I am.
Meghan: He did. He was like, “She’s on The Jersey Shore.” Have you always been a Republican? And are you still interested in politics?
Snooki: To be honest with you, I’m not really a Republican or a Democrat. I actually signed up as an independent, just because I don’t want to pick any side and also I don’t really know a lot about politics. I only know politics about, like, you know, tanning and being a Guidette. So when I saw it was Obama and McCain, to be honest with you, the only reason why I voted for your father was because he was really cute and I liked when he did his speeches.
Meghan: Well, thank you. [Laughing] I appreciate that, though it’s a little weird… Are you still pissed off about the tax on tanning?
Snooki: Um, I really don’t see the reason why there would be a tax on tanning, because so many people go tanning even though they’re not, like, Guido/Guidettes. People go tanning because they like to feel tan. You feel more sexy when you’re tan and I don’t understand why you would tax on that, because you’re making yourself feel more happy about yourself. So I really don’t understand why that would be, but you know, whatever.
Meghan: Got it. I have this theory about why your show and you and your cast members are so popular is because you guys are kind of like the anti-Hills. I stopped watching The Hills a long time ago in college, because I just thought it was so scripted and the girls didn’t have anything to relate to them and they’re walking with $10,000 handbags.
Snooki: I just feel like we’re really relatable and we don’t hold anything back. We’re all bold, we all say what’s on our mind, and if you have something to say and you know causes a dramatic thing, that’s what’s going to happen. We all stick up for ourselves and I think that’s why we stand out, because we really don’t care what other people think.
