(Newser) – Meghan McCain is a Jersey Shore fan, and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is a McCain voter. Sort of. In a truly surreal interview for the Daily Beast, Snooki reveals her big political stance: She's against the Obama administration's tax on tanning booths. "So many people go tanning even though they’re not, like, Guido/Guidettes," she argues. "People go tanning because they like to feel tan. You feel more sexy when you’re tan and I don’t understand why you would tax on that."

But Snooki isn't exactly a tea partier. She says she's an independent, because she doesn't know enough to take a side. "I only know politics about, like, you know, tanning and being a Guidette," she says. "To be honest with you, the only reason why I voted for your father was because he was really cute." She also discusses her role models—Kendra Wilkinson and Tori Spelling—and the difference between the show's locations. "In Jersey, there's Guidos everywhere," she explains. "In Miami, it was kind of different, because it's more like Spanish-oriented, and there really wasn't a lot of Guidos there."
