John McCain Says You Guys Need To Get A Life

John McCain was in South Carolina campaigning Wednesday when he was asked about what he thought we should do about Iran, “When do we send them an airmail message to Tehran?” This question almost made McCain break into a Beach Boys song, except with different lyrics. “That old, eh, that old Beach Boys song, ‘Bomb Iran,'” McCain joked, “Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb … anyway, ah …” The audience loved it, he should have kept going, they would have sang along. The next day at a fund raiser in Las Vegas a reporter asked McCain if he thought the song might have been insensitive, and he responded, “Insensitive to what? The Iranians?” What about the Beach Boys? McCain was asked if he had a response to those that thought his song was in bad taste. “Please, I was talking to some of my old veterans friends,” McCain told reporters. “My response is, Lighten up and get a life.” A little chit chat with anyone, in public, on a major campaign trail, is also with the rest of the world these days thanks to cameras and YouTube.

    This rules!!

    The original song from the the 70’s was written and distributed all over the radio during Carter’s presidency!

    Do a Google search for Vince Vance and the Valiants

    It’ll remind you of a time when we would negotiate with the Iranian’s silly government.
