Anne Hathaway, Raffaello Follieri and John McCain are on a boat…

September 11th, 2008 // 69 Comments

Anne Hathaway’s ex Raffaello Follieri pled guilty yesterday to fraud after he pretended to be a CFO for the Vatican and bilked investors out of money. Today, he began repaying the government as part of his plea bargain and – wait a minute – who’s that guy in the purple hat? He looks familiar and possibly dying. Why it’s Republican presidential candidate John McCain! Ha ha ha, what in the hell? The Nation explains:

The photograph substantiates reports that in late August, 2006, McCain celebrated his 70th birthday aboard a yacht, the Celine Ashley, rented by A-list con man Raffaello Follieri and his then-movie star girlfriend Anne Hathaway…. McCain is shown boarding the yacht ramp towards the smiling Follieri and Hathaway. Just ahead of McCain and shaking hands with Follieri appears to be Rick Davis–McCain’s top aide and now co-manager of his campaign, who accompanied him on the trip and advised the government of Montenegro. A few months after McCain’s yacht party, Follieri strengthened his ties to McCain’s orbit by retaining Rick Davis’s well-connected Washington lobbying firm, Davis Manafort, and offering Davis both an investment deal and help in securing the Catholic vote for McCain’s presidential bid.

For the record, my sources inform me there’s absolutely nothing scandalous going on here at all, folks. John McCain just loves him some Princess Diaries. Not a fan of the sequel though. Upsets his angina.

Thanks to Ben for recognizing this site is a haven of intellectual debate – and jokes about my penis. Frankly, I don’t see how you can have one without the other.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Hathaway damn you for associating with Mcain. My love for you is now dead.

    #35, who says he didn’t?

  3. wake the fuck up

    Yes, John McCain was on a boat two years ago. Barack Obama (aka Barry Obama, aka Barry Soetro etc…) is best buds with the admitted and unapologetic domestic terrorist bomber Bill Ayers, and don’t even get me STARTED on Tony Rezco… But no, no, let’s focus on John McCain, who apparently once walked onto a rented boat two years ago… Nice.

    Just look up those names people. The liberal media will NOT cover these stories. For Christ’s sake the guy has been a senator for 140 days and wrote two books about himself blowing coke in college and hanging out with extremist groups… THESE ARE NOT QUALIFICATIONS FOR THE FUCKING PRESIDENCY!!!

    Hey 53… isn’t Bush associated with extremist groups (Halliburton/Enron/ChoicePoint/Blackwater/MNBA) and didn’t he blow coke in college as well? He still got to serve two terms because of idiots like you.

  5. truth

    @53 u are such a fucking douche.

    How could he be best buds with Bill Ayers the terrorist. Obama was fucking 8 years old during those years. SHUT THE FUCK UP WITH YOUR SPEWING BULLSHIT.

    Since when does somebody supporting McCain mean they voted for Bush?


  7. Flip

    I cannot imagine someone with enough sense to have voted for Gore and Kerry to support McCain. That’s like saying you’re in favor of the Nazi party, but don’t really agree with Hitler on the tough issues…

  8. Dave C

    Lori, #45, proves bigotry and stupidity are alive and well.

  9. I agree with Dave, #58. Lori is a huge biggot.

  10. Oh no!! Groundbreaking story….McCain went for a boat ride……oh no……
    He’s still got my vote!

  11. hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    …youre all so angry that Barack Osama is going to lose now, and you know it. Listen to all your vitriol, hateful comments, name calling and downright immaturity, just like a 12 yr old that has his toys taken away from him. You know of nothingmore to do than get emotional.


    …You guys are soooooooooooooooo mad and upset. When will you learn that these hollywood idiots only harm your cause? I cant wait until we team up with Israel and annihilate Iran and anyone else that wants to sit there and try and taunt us with nuclear threat.


    Good Bye Barack Osama. Join the likes of your buddy John Edwards in anonymity.

    When I get hard, I am so big that women must be given oxygen to finish blowing me.

  13. one thing’s definitely for sure: THIS IS INDEED BETTER THAN SWIMMING, folks!!

    “…rubbed one out to Anne Hathaway, Sarah Palin must seem like a fat breeding pig by…”

    Seem like?

    Good God the Dems are really stretching and trying WAY too hard to find something…anything wrong with McCain AND/Or Palin.
    I get embaressed for them…poor things…. – Dems have NO shame but the grown ups in this world see through their antics and no worries……”the while folks will take care of you”… matter who you are…that’s a quote from the view by Barbara Walters. ha ha…everywhere you turn a Dem is making a complete ass of themselves. It’s confusing.

    For the writer who said McCain would never wear a purple hat: McCain is part owner of the Arizona Diamondbacks baseball team. Until last season (2007), the team colors were purple and teal, hence the purple hat.

  19. extra terestrical

    John McCain just seems so damn angry that we even have an election. Like how dare we not just appoint him leader – he earned it damn’t! I wonder if he’ll be able to unclench one of those fists after loosing & congratulate Obama with a handshake?
