"I kind of think she might be too good looking to go to jail," McCain, 73, gushed of 22-year-old Snooki (real name: Nicole Polizzi) during a Wednesday radio appearance on Phoenix's KMLE.

Snooki, who spent a few hours behind bars before bail was posted, agrees. On Monday, she told MTV, "I'm too pretty to be in jail...I'm not a criminal."

McCain first gave a shout-out to the pint-sized party girl back in June. After perma-tan Snooki Tweeted a complaint about proposed taxes on tanning beds, the veteran politician Tweeted in kind:

"@Sn00ki ur right, I would never tax ur tanning bed! O's tax policy is quite The Situation. but I do rec wearing sunscreen!"

On less familiar terms with Snooki? President Barack Obama, who claimed he didn't know who she was during his recent appearance on The View.  But the reality star's not buying it. "I know he knows who I am," she told E! News. "Why did he have to lie and say he didn't know me?"
