Kirbyjon Caldwell, the Houston pastor who presided over Jenna Bush's wedding, has made it clear his love of Republicans doesn't extend to presumptive GOP nominee John McCain.

Speaking to reporters yesterday, Caldwell let it rip, breaking out the hate just because McCain attended a biker rally in South Dakota and suggested his wife should enter the annual topless contest held there.

Said Caldwell:

Well, I don't know a lot about John McCain's family history, I do know, however, that as recently as last week I think it was, the Senator made a comment in South Dakota regarding his wife entering some Buffalo Chips contest which is this topless deal and if she were to enter she would probably win it and my personal opinion and based on my understanding of the Christian faith, that's not not, N-O-T, not the type of expression that a presidential candidate, or anyone for that matter who is a follower of the Christian faith, ought to make. I don't know if that is a perfect case in point, but it surely does help to juxtapose the DNA of Senator Obama, if you would, versus the DNA of Senator McCain.

What's Kirbyjon got against Cindy McCain's tits?
