During a town hall in Scranton, PA on Monday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) declared that “there’s only one ethnic joke that can be told in American politics and that’s Irish jokes.” McCain then preceded to tell a joke about drunk Irish twins.This is the same guy who repeatedly told the "joke" ascribing Chelsea Clinton's "ugliness" to the fact that "her father was Janet Reno."
Who's the "ugly" one again, Senator?
He's not a "maverick." He's a senile, out-of-touch, angry old man and he's got no business speaking for--or to--Americans.
I've got news for you, Senator. You try on that joke the Irish-American contexts in which I hang out and they'll rip you a new one. And I'll help.
