McCain Jokes About Bombing Iran -- flop sweat cuts in as the Senator tries to regain his tough-guy pose while circling the toilet bowl

April 19,2007 | WASHINGTON -- 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.

His quip was prompted by a man in the audience who asked: "How many times do we have to prove that these people are blowing up people now, nevermind if they get a nuclear weapon, when do we send 'em an airmail message to Tehran?"


It is probably imperative at this point that everyone in America knows Lenny Bruce's bit "The Palladium." Because the prospect of a man in a state of panic who is willing to destroy the world rather than go Sewer Surfing is a very relevant one.

Senator McCain -- thanks for your former courage, but once you've spent time publicly kissing the ass of an incompetent with money and power, like virginity, integrity and respect is NOT something you'll ever get back. Just ask Colin Powell.
