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.
