McCain Gay Marriage

What's this? John McCain has suddenly reversed his position on gay marriage?!

"Today I announce that I have reversed my position and come out in full support of gay marriage...particularly marriage between passionate females."
Wait a minute. Something sounds kinda suspicious about that. It's far too conceivably honest, for one thing.

Well, whaddaya know? Turns out that McCain's startling new announcement was just a little snarky payback for his campaign's thieving.

John McCain's people commandeered my world-renowned MySpace design template and did a few things wrong:

1. They did not credit me for the template, even though the template explicitly requested credit.

2. They used my own unmodified imagery, specifically for the "Contacting John McCain" table.

3. As if #2 wasn't bad enough, the McCain crew is actually pulling their image directly from my server on each page load. So every time someone visits the McCain MySpace page, my bandwidth is being used to deliver part of the page! Bad McCain!

…So, the only thing necessary to effectively commandeer McCain's page with my own messaging was to simply replace my own sample image on my server with a newly created sample on my server. No server but my own was touched and no laws were broken. The immaculate hack.

Abortion? The Iraq War? Probably too heavy to joke about. Gay marriage seemed like a more of a non-lethal subject to center the prank around.

So with a few minutes in Photoshop and a quick FTP, a new John McCain was born...

...and The Straight-Talk Express isn't just for straight people anymore.


Way to go, McCain. Your campaign just keeps getting better and better, dude.
