McLame Bombs; Is He Still Running?

Filed under: Election 2008,John McCain,RINOs,YouTube — Psycheout @ 2:02 am

John McCain proves once again that he has lost his mind and his last chance at the Presidency of this great nation. I can forgive the Beach Boys reference, but, support an attack on Iran or not, I cannot abide telegraphing threats to our enemies by Presidential candidates. Leave the business of war to our Commander-in-Chief.

Republican US presidential contender Senator John McCain’s joke on how to deal with Iran is not making everybody laugh.

Correction, Aussies. It’s making nobody laugh, except perhaps McCainiacs, who are certainly the most delusional of Americans.

He responded to a question from an audience in South Carolina on Wednesday by breaking into the melody of the Beach Boys song “Barbara Ann” but changing the lyrics to “Bomb Iran.”

Wow, John. You’re so cutting edge it hurts.

“That old, eh, that old Beach Boys song, ‘Bomb Iran’,’ McCain joked and then added: “Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb … anyway, ah …” The audience responded with laughter.

What an idiot. The last time I heard this “joke” was when my father fell off our pet dinosaur. McCain needs a fork stuck in him. He’s done.

“Please, I was talking to some of my old veterans friends,” he told reporters. “My response is, lighten up and get a life.”

Please, I’m listening to a delusional, washed-up has-been. My response is “get a life,” sir.

When reporters asked if the joke was insensitive, McCain said: “Insensitive to what? The Iranians?”

To what? To whom? Whatever. That’s all fine and good, you old idiot. But last time I checked, the Commander-in-Chief (not you, ever, moron, but President George W. Bush at the moment) makes decisions about who to bomb, not you. And you bombed without permission. So give it up.

The episode echoed President Ronald Reagan’s 1984 quip at the height of the nuclear arms race with the Soviet Union when he said: “My fellow Americans, I’m pleased to tell you today that I’ve signed legislation that will outlaw Russia forever. We begin bombing in five minutes.”

Reagan was funny. And was the President. You were not. And will never be. If it bends, it’s funny. If it breaks, it’s not funny. You are not funny, Mr. McCain. It’s time to admit to yourself that you will never be President. And for this we are all thankful.

Time to retire to a villa in Arizona, McLame.

I’m glad that Sam Brownback doesn’t make gaffes like this. He’s a serious conservative. That’s what we need. Not an unfunny man who makes gaffes to get laughs.

Update: Video of McCain at the Chuckle Hut.

  1. Youve got a mean streak, Psycheout. But I can’t disagree with a word you said. Barbra Ann? Give me a break.

  2. That was one of the funniest blog entries I ever read, Psycheout.

    I thoroughly enjoyed it and think it is a classic. I especially like what you said here…”To what? To whom? Whatever. That’s all fine and good, you old idiot. But last time I checked, the Commander-in-Chief (not you, ever, moron, but President George W. Bush at the moment) makes decisions about who to bomb, not you. And you bombed without permission. So give it up.”…and also…”Reagan was funny. And was the President. You were not. And will never be. If it bends, it’s funny. If it breaks, it’s not funny. You are not funny, Mr. McCain. It’s time to admit to yourself that you will never be President. And for this we are all thankful.”

    I will NEVER vote for Brownback, or ANY pro-amnesty candidate, since our country could not possible stay united with an expected 100,000,000 million new legal residents, plus the 12-30 million here now, PLUS the millions more who will come ILLEGALLY, again, because of the amnesty bill.

    I really used to like and admire ( I still do, to a certain degree) Brownback, especially his eloquent, compassionate and intelligent defense of pro-life issues. I even called his office to spur him to run. That was before he voted for the Senate amnesty bill.

    I hope you read my blog entries about the Bushites and their foundational plans they are now putting into place for some sort of United States of NORTH America union. That is why Bush threatened to VETO large increases in border agents for the first several years of his administration. He needs big business money that uses the illegal aliens for cheap labor. It is also the reason why he slapped patriotic Americans in the face several years ago when he referred to us as “vigilantes” when we tried to prevent illegal drugs and aliens from entering the United States. The Republican party has been hijacked by those beholden to multinational big business which has no loyalty to borders or sovereignty. They fooled us by calling their brand of conservatism “compassionate conservatism” to throw me and other conservatives off guard, while they planned and schemed for amnesty one day.

    Mitt Romney is the ONLY candidate to suggest that illegal aliens should NOT have a guaranteed right to citizenship. Sam Brownback, along with the rest of the Republicans who voted for amnesty, betrayed America, conservatives and the Republican party.

    Don’t worry, we can agree to disagree.

  3. John McLame — wasn’t he in Die Hard?

    Anyhow, I’m sure he was just ripping off Rush’s show, when he did it with “Bomb Iraq” back in 1990 — and that was actually funny!

  4. Great post. Personally I think McCain is in the early stages of senile dementia. It would be nice if his family tried to talk him out of running. Maybe they have and he won’t listen. I don’t know. It’s just painful to watch.

    The problem is he is a Senator and he is a Republican and he makes the party and America look bad.

    I wonder how the people in Arizona feel? Pretty embarrased I hope, unless they’re all crazy..

  5. Brownback doesn’t get laughs period.

  6. How incredibly insightful, Gus. You must share more of your wisdom with us in the near future. What’s a “laughs period?” Is that like recess?

  7. Don’t hold back. Tell us what you really think. Funny post.

  8. Apparently John McCain thinks that he can operate a parallel foreign policy. I guess he hasn’t heard the White House complaining lately that members of Congress should not be trying to conduct their own foreign affairs.

    I like the GOP better when then could keep everybody on the same page of the talking points. The one thing you don’t want from strong leaders is people who think for themselves, right, Brownbackers?

  10. McCain could win the nomination… if he runs as VP on the Democrat ticket. Still won’t get him in the White House, though. If he ever wants a trip to that place come 2009, he can wait in line and pass through the metal detectors like the rest of the tourists.

  11. If nothing else, it just shows how incredibly tacky and pathetic McCain has become. I used to have some respect for him, and as he’s a veteran, there will always be some respect there that remains. However, his eagerness to be liked is smacking of desperation.

  12. Very frustrating that we have such a poor field of leaders. Giuliani is obviously the worst, he’s at least as liberal as the Dems. McCain’s San Fran speech supporting abortion casts doubt on his voting record, as does his slanted campaign finance reform bill. Romney is a recent convert and seems more anti-Roe than Pro-Life. Even Fred Thompson is on YouTube saying he opposed incarceration of the abortionists. Tommy Thompson has even lobbied for embryonic stem cell federal funding. Gilmore believes in abortions to the completely arbitrary point of eight weeks in utero. Pataki is Pro-Choice. For a while people were egging Condi Rice, also Pro-Choce, to run. HOW IN THE WORLD DID WE COME UP WITH SUCH A CROP OF LOSER CANDIDATES???

    Paul, Tancredo and Hunter are acceptable and Brownback we know we can count on. Gingrich could be alright except he’s got some baggage. After them, throw the rest out. My sole comfort at this stage is that there are so many undecideds in the GOP primary voters. The media of course takes that as a sign to encourage Mayor Bloomberg, another Pro-Choicer, to run. Are there any pro-choice politicians with an (R) next to their name that are not yet running for President?
