John McCain and Snooki should really tweet more often.   (Associated Press)

(Newser) – Yesterday’s Awkward Tweet of the Day Award goes to John McCain, who made the world cringe when he started up a Twitter conversation with none other than Jersey Shore’s Snooki…about tanning. “u r right, I would never tax your tanning bed! Pres Obama's tax/spend policy is quite The Situation. but I do rec wearing sunscreen!” the Maverick wrote on Twitter. See that? He even made a little pun there with The Situation’s name!

The tweet was in response Snooki’s recent complaint, People reports, that “I don't go tanning-tanning anymore because Obama put a 10% tax on tanning. And I feel like he did that intentionally for us.”
