John McCain's latest attempt at comedy has bombed, so to speak.
During a campaign appearance this week, McCain (who of course is running for President) joked about bombing Iran.
From the Associated Press:
Republican presidential contender John McCain, known for having a quirky sense of humor, joked about bombing Iran at a campaign appearance this week.
In response to an audience question about military action against Iran, the Arizona senator briefly sang the chorus of the surf-rocker classic “Barbara Ann.”
“That old, eh, that old Beach Boys song, Bomb Iran,” he said in jest Wednesday, chuckling with the crowd. Then, he softly sang to the melody: “Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, anyway, ah ...” The audience responded with more laughter.
I guess McCain (who of course was a POW during the Vietnam War) now finds it downright funny that we might commit American's sons and daughters who wear the uniform, to a military action in Iran, putting their lives at risk.
McCain's joke about bombing Iran, reminded me of Bush' "comedy" routine at the Radio and Television Correspondents Dinner in 2004, when he joked about not being able to find the weapons of mass distruction in Iraq, and the White House produced a video of Bush supposedly looking for Iraq's missing WMDs in the White House. Never mind that people have lost their lives as the result of the Iraq war.
