More of McCain's Special Brand of Humor...

You've probably all heard of John McCain's version of the Beach Boys song "Barbara Ann" - you know, "Bomb, bomb, bomb Iran" - and he recently made a hilarious joke about how we can kill off Iranians with cigarettes. It turns out his tremendously clever sense of humor isn't new, in fact it's been legendary for decades and it's been said that it shows that he's "authentic". Did you hear the one about the rape victim? Always a very funny subject for a joke, don't you agree? This was told when he was first running for the Senate, and he still won! Then there's the nasty Chelsea Clinton joke from back when her father was in the White House and she was a very young teen. This was so special reporters covering it wouldn't repeat it or print it at the time. Read about them here and let me know what you think: http://www.crooksandliars.com/2008/07/15/did-you-hear-john-mccains-womanrapegorilla-joke/ Does this guy have CLASS or what? Annie

Aww, gee, what a guy! He deserves a big ol' pat on the back for that enlightening rape joke. You know what? We should just skip the election entirely and put this gem of a man straight into office and save us all a lot of troube. Besides, I'm sure all of us silly women would have a hard time figuring out those manly ballot machines, that is if we aren't to busy fullfilling all our womanly duties. Excuse me while I go swoon, all this political talk is making my empty little head spin.

Tasteless, arrogant, anti-women, pro-war -- just what we want in a president. Oh, yeah, he'll keep us safe.

If we get McCain for President, we'll have at least 4 more years of dumbing-down to go. I don't think the Oval Office can survive many more stupid McBushes. The man is a rude, crude fool. He just needs a jester hat and little shoes with bells on them. Maybe he could borrow D. Cheney's.

Good idea, but he'll have to be careful the D1ck doesn't shoot him in the face. Hey, in his case it might be an improvement...lol! There, I can use tasteless and crude humor too. Annie

I don't think McCain is a bad person, or that his feeble attempts at humor actually represent his views as a politician. Some people can use humor a lot better than others and McCain is one who can't. Maybe someone will step up and help him develop a better strategy for using his words in a positive way to reflect what his views really are. On a similar note, at a recent Obama fund raiser, Bernie Mac made a joke which was unacceptable to many Obama supporters. They were quick to step in and let people know the joke doesn't reflect their views, on the ground that the joke is "offensive to women." I admit they were quick to remedy the situation and Obama isn't stepping up to the mike and spouting off insensive gender related jokes, but I am still wondering why Bernic Mac's joke was labelled "offensive to women." Aren't insensitive gender jokes ever offensive to men? http://www.thecelebritycafe.com/features/18054.html

I'm not sure I'd go so far as to say he's a "bad person" but in at least some of those cases the jokes he told were prepared so I'd assume that meant he'd already read them before delivering them in public and I must say, joking about a woman being raped or about a young girl being ugly should not be considered appropriate material for any respectable person let along a political candidate. I didn't think Bernie Mac's joke was terribly offensive to women or very funny, to be honest, but I guess I can understand how some may have found it offensive. I wouldn't like jokes that are offensive to men, either. Annie

McCain should abandon his attempts to use humor, planned or otherwise and stick to straight facts and plans about the issues that are facing the USA. Bernie Mac's joke drew a strong negative reaction from Obama's supporters present at that event, so that is why the hedging it over was necessary. It isn't right to use humor to put down individuals, women or any other groups of people, but, unfortunately people do it all the time on TV and almost everywhere else in society. That doesn't make it any less tacky and insensitive. McCain should not have told those jokes.
