And now, ladies and gentlemen, as I look into your faces, and believe me, some of your faces need looking into...

John McCain pulls a Shatner and tells critics of his joke about bombing Iran to "get a life."

“Please, I was talking to some of my old veterans friends,” he told reporters. “My response is, Lighten up and get a life.”

When reporters asked if the joke was insensitive, McCain said: “Insensitive to what? The Iranians?” MSNBC 3-20-2007

It's a JOKE, get it? Sure it the idea that the U.S. would send the Middle East into an apocalyptic turmoil by bombing Iran sends chills down the spine of any thinking person by McCain was just making a funny with his buddies so lighten up. He didn't even get into his holocaust material and his joke about the VT shootings which is always a crowd pleaser.




(Like the McCain candidacy itself.)

He has not figured out that he lost the presidency a long time ago.

C'mon Dean. It isn't as if Senator John McCain is a representative of his country, so his comments carry any weight.

Also, it isn't as if antagonizing Iran could have any impact on our troops fighting in Iraq or anything.

Lighten up.

Well, I guess that's true. Plus it's not as if he made a joke about their religion. He only joked about killing them so it's not that bad.

I see the light.

Does it really matter. He's never going to be pres. Unless Republicans figure out a way to steal the election. . . Oh.
