McCain, Snooki talk tanning on Twitter

'McCain would never put a 10 percent tax on tanning.' Snooki said in a preview of Jersey Shore Season 2.

Washington (CNN) – Jersey Shore sensation Snooki got tanning tips from an unlikely source Wednesday - Arizona Sen. John McCain.

During a sneak peak of Jersey Shore Season 2 at the MTV Movie Awards Sunday, Snooki was seen at her house in Poughkeepsie, New York packing to head back to the beach.

"I don't go tanning anymore because Obama put a 10 percent tax on tanning and I feel he did that intentionally for us," Snooki said in the preview. "McCain would never put a 10 percent tax on tanning."

McCain responded on Twitter Wednesday: "@Sn00ki 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!"

Snooki then wrote: "Haha Yes!!"

A spokeswoman for the Arizona senator said McCain thought Twitter would be an "amusing way to respond to her comments."

"Twitter is a good medium for that kind of conversation," McCain communications director Brooke Buchanan told CNN.

McCain is one of the most popular politicians on Twitter with over 1.7 million followers.

An MTV spokeswoman told CNN Snooki is a fan of McCain, but could not confirm if she voted for the 2008 presidential candidate when reached at 12:00 pm ET.

Snooki was still sleeping.

    Oh-mah-gawd! Can McCain debase himself further? Why would anyone have ANY respect for this man anymore?

    Snookie voted? Wouldn't that damage her cred?

    Looks like there's going to be a McCain/Snooki ticket for 2012? Still better than Palin.

    I think that John McCain and Snookie should tie the knot! A couple made in heaven.

    As a real New Jersey resident (not someone form Poughkeepsie, NY), I am not surprised that someone with Snookie's intellectual capabilities would agree with McCain on policies regarding taxes and health . We all know that tanning is very healthy and Snookie will look so really hot in her 50s because of the tanning she is now doing in her 20s. Obama really should listen to her and remove the tax on tanning beds. Then she can go back to the bed and get the fake tan she badly needs. I can't wait to see how hot Snookie will look 20 years from now after all her years on the tanning bed.
