I can’t believe I have to explain this but some people seem to be confused as to why John McCain divorced his first wife Carol Shepp (who was previously divorced when she met John) after 14 years of marriage. Maybe men just have better vision in this area but for those that are having trouble following along, let me try to explain.
Big Mac married Carol, who was a swimwear model from Philly, in 1965. All was well until two huge things happened. First, Mac became a POW. Unfortunately, while he was imprisoned, his wife was in a terrible car accident that put her in the hospital for 6 months and resulted in 23 operations. When Mac returned home from the war, his wife was now 4 inches shorter, heavier, and using crutches to get around. A horrible story for all involved.
With all of the trauma both endured, the marriage suffered and was not panning out. Fortunately for John, he met Cindy Hensley who happened to be a former USC cheerleader and part of a very wealthy family. Did you see what I just wrote? Wealthy, USC cheerleader! Let’s take a look at the two women John was torn between:
Seriously, what is so hard to understand about the fact that John picked the smoking hot, wealthy blond? Men seem to have no problem understanding how obvious of a choice this is but women seem to be conflicted. Go figure…
So the big question is, did John make the right choice? Let’s look at the current photo’s:
The defense rests his case. John McCain – War hero and guy that knows his women!
Now before any of you get upset, let me make it clear that most men are not hypocrites in this area. If you ask any of us, we will tell you exactly who we would leave our current mate for. In my case, I think Salma Hayek would probably fit the bill.
And ladies, don’t kid yourself into thinking you wouldn’t do the same thing if Johnny Depp or Ed McMahon came knocking on the door. You’re not kidding anyone. As the great Tina Turner said, “What’s love got to do with it?”
