The McCain Girls Have Arrived, and They Have Umbrellas

From the first vigorous chorus to the epic conclusion, in which small John McCains fall diagonally from the sky like suited sleet, you can only wonder: What the hell is going on here? Whose idea was it to do a video called “It’s Raining McCain,” set to the tune of “It’s Raining Men,” and who are the women performing this song and dance in front of a blue screen? Are the McCain Girls — Phyllis, Janice, and Jen (as we’re calling them in the absence of actual information) — sincere McCain fans, teachers at a local junior school, perhaps, who were slipped pot brownies and tricked into performing by the mean AV-club kids? Or, worse, was this video done at a home and then meanly leaked to You Tube by a pimply orderly? And above all: Is it bad? Or is it brilliant? That we leave up to you, dear reader.
