As to be expected, it makes for some funny reading, like McCain’s latest joke about Iran as quoted from the Washington Post:
McCain’s Latest Iran Joke
By Michael D. Shear
Sen. John McCain hasn’t had good luck joking about Iran. But he tried it again Tuesday.
Responding to a question about a survey that shows increased exports to Iran, mainly from cigarettes, McCain said, “Maybe that’s a way of killing them.”
He quickly caught himself, saying “I meant that as a joke” as his wife, Cindy, poked him in the back.
Last time, it was also Iran. His singing about bombing Iran to the theme of the Beach Boy’s “Barbara Ann” drew derision from many quarters but a “lighten up” response from McCain.
That’s just what we need, a president with an astute sense of humor.
