John McCain - The Original Maverick

Manager: You scored big points tonight, sir.
: What are you talking about? They ate me alive out there!
Manager: Yes, but your body stayed on message. And that message is, “look at my shiny new body.” The robots ate it up. You’ve got real charisma from the neck down.
: Nixon with charisma? My God! I can rule the universe!

    McCain is losing with only 20% of the vote. Now the robot vote is in…
    It’s McCain in a landslide!

  4. chocodocolus on October 16th, 2008 4:49 am

    id would vote for a robot. i mean whos gonna stop him except and equally big robot!

  5. Pigeon Army on October 16th, 2008 4:49 am

    McCain the Robot -- because Joe the Plumber said it should be so.

  6. Hirofox on October 16th, 2008 8:04 am

    Oh I see what you did there…

  7. Burnt Eyes on October 16th, 2008 8:05 am

    @shlop: is that the one where McCain is constantly being referred to as a maverick, the one where Nixon’s being quoted from Futurama, or the one where McCain’s head is stuck on Sigma’s body? Just askin’ is all.

  8. Frog on October 16th, 2008 11:02 am

    XD Amazing


    *Roar of applause*

  9. Lekonua on October 16th, 2008 1:06 pm

    I was WAITING for someone to do this joke.
    Took long enough.

  10. killercartoons on October 16th, 2008 1:13 pm

    yeah, youre right, i dont get it

  11. Kidou on October 16th, 2008 1:25 pm

    Mcain doesn’t look enough like Sigma for this to be truely funny.

  12. Draco Advigilat on October 16th, 2008 2:49 pm

    Poo… I sent this same joke in a long time ago, with almost the same exact design.

    Oh well, maybe next time.

    @ Goldenmetroid117

    I bow at your technicality.

    And by more Photoshop, I meant adding the red 'scars' under his eyes and the tiny maverick insignia on his forehead.

  14. Rodge on October 16th, 2008 3:33 pm

    Shawn hearts Futurama

  15. Exploderizer on October 16th, 2008 3:34 pm


    Anyway, this pic is pure win.

  16. Exploderizer on October 16th, 2008 3:35 pm

    Anyway, this pic is just pure epic win.

  17. Mega Robinson Man on October 16th, 2008 3:59 pm

    If you want to get technical, Zero was actually the first Maverick.

    Still a damn funny pic though. Officaily one of the the greatest political/video game pictures ever. But Kidou’s right. He really dosent look like Sigma. A little more photoshop is needed.

  18. Goldenmetroid117 on October 16th, 2008 4:33 pm

    okay super nerd time

    Zero’s not really a maverick cause he’s not a reploid, he was given the power to decide when dr. Cain copied it from X, also why do you say McCain looks nothing like sigma, they’re both bald, and I considered zero, but that makes McCAin look too cool. Also I’m sorry I suck at photo shop (i used paintshop pro, less user friendly)

  19. Pigeon Army on October 16th, 2008 4:53 pm


    I actually like yours more. :P

  20. RonFalco on October 16th, 2008 5:32 pm


    I don’t know about anyone else, but that comment gives me SERIOUS deja vu.

  21. Hajs5 on October 16th, 2008 6:29 pm

    This is a reply to schlop
    I got it and it was awesome! Megaman X rules!

  22. KidWithTheFace on October 16th, 2008 7:24 pm

    so…if McCain is elected, that means megaman will appear and defeat him? Now there’s a platform i can support!

  23. KoRoBeNiKi on October 17th, 2008 12:01 am

    futurama jokes are too good

  24. Happy on October 17th, 2008 3:40 am

    damn you Americans and your politics which I should really pay more attention to

  25. Draco Advigilat on October 17th, 2008 4:05 am

    Yeah, based on the definition that a Maverick in MMX is a Reploid gone evil, this makes Sigma the original. Zero is not a Reploid, after all.

    @Pigeon Army
    Heh, thanks :3

  26. AquaLink on October 17th, 2008 7:51 am

    i either played or own some version of every megaman X game currently in the market. mccain’s head is on sigma, leader of the mavericks, a group of robots infected by sigma’s virus that try to overthrow the human/robot civilization that exists in every game, with the exception of a few games where the robots are, in fact, not under the virus, but join sigma of their own free will. the quote is something from futurama. do NOT think you know more about something than others when you post a comment, especially when it’s game related.

    lol’d at the pic, btw, good job

  27. Goldenmetroid117 on October 17th, 2008 3:22 pm

    @Mega Robinson Man

    I have to say, the red scars and symbol would have been a great idea, but I’m really not that good with photoshop, I’m just happy that the website accepted it (you can still see a little black border above the McCain head from the original photo)

  28. Exploderizer on October 17th, 2008 3:41 pm

    Oops, REALLY sorry for the double post.:P

  29. Don on October 18th, 2008 1:02 pm

    4/5 for the Futurama reference. Made me lol more than the pic. XD

    Does that make Sarah Palin, Vile?

  34. Brant Reinard on April 30th, 2010 11:57 am

    John McCain is also a very good politician. he did not win because the people are not satisfied on the Republicans.`~~
