Don’t quit your day job McCain

John McCain at VFWAh geez. Here we go again with another politician trying to make light of a serious subject but ends up looking like an insensitive dufus.

On Wednesday, John McCain campaigned at a VFW hall in South Carolina. He was asked about the possibility of war with Iran. His reply was a stupid rendition of the Beach Boys’ “Barbara Ann” but using the words “Bomb, bomb, bomb…bomb, bomb, Iran.” His nonchalant mannerism of going into another war and killing people was just a joke to lighten the mood in the VFW hall per one of his aides.

I also love how he blows his nose as soon as he gets on stage. There’s a true leader. Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of things that I like about McCain (although this Lefty Lucy would never vote that way) but it seems that he has been taking some cues from M.C. Rove which is just a total turn-off. Way to represent John!

Just an update, this is from The NY Times this afternoon:

WASHINGTON (AP) — The liberal group MoveOn.org is launching an ad against Republican John McCain and his joke about bombing Iran, arguing that the nation ”can’t afford another reckless president.”

The group plans to spend about $100,000 to air a commercial on network and some cable television stations in Iowa and New Hampshire, states that hold early contests in the presidential nomination process, spokesman Alex Howe said Friday.

Guess they didn’t find it amusing either.
