Meet John McCain: Comedian

For some reason I was cruising by CSPAN last night and saw McCain speaking from last Tuesday while in Wisconsin. After thanking former Gov. Tommy Thompson, McCain makes the most awkward and unfunny joke about governors which leaves the crowd, and especially him, flopping around. Then he follows it up with a lawyer joke which wasn't particularly funny 20 years ago. [Insert crickets chirping.] You, sir, are no Barack Obama.

This was one of John McCain's jokes..

"Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly?
Because her father is Janet Reno."

Now that one is really funny.

don't believe me?

Are you sure the lawyer joke was actually a joke and not just a statement of fact?

Thank God is not a Barack Obama!

Joke telling is not a requirement for the job.

Does anybody know what Obama is really saying? Is it a good sign when Obama supporters repeatedly swoon at the sound of his voice? Are we sure he's not really Randall Flagg?

By McCain not being Obama, you mean what?

Obama would be a great Dallas County DA.

He will be a disaster of a President.

Oh, so Barack Obama is the joke?

Now that's funny!

Why do you seem to be avoiding the story about the DHS students arrested for the Columbine-like threat? A letter from Melinda Reeves was sent home with students last week. Then the Messenger picked up on it. It was even on Channel 8 news last night.

John McCain is not Obama who is going to save the world. McCain has no sense of humor but he isn't going to send all our money for foreign aid to save the world but will keep us in Iraq for a hundred years.

Last night, I could not believe we didn't know about the threat at Decatur High School.

So much for depending on the blog for up to date information.

Yes Barry, he is no Barack Obama and his middle name is not Hussein either---and your point is???

You're absolutely right, Barry. John McCain is no Barack Hussein Obama. McCain served his country as a naval aviator for 22 years.
He has survived missile attacks and being a POW in the Hanoi Hilton. He's had both arms and a leg broken in battle. While a POW, he spent most of his time in solitary confinement and was often beaten. He was awarded the Silver Star, Bronze Star, Legion of Merit, Purple Heart, and the Distinguished Flying Cross. Yes, John McCain is no Barack Hussein Obama!!!

I LOVED the Chelsea Clinton joke!
Barry is right on the lawyer/fish joke:it was lame 20 years ago and being massacrated with that horrible delivery didn't help a bit.

The funny thing about 8:20's mercifully relatively brief rant is that's all we really KNOW about McCain,and we know it because he personally reminds us during every appearance.

All right, Wordkyle--a reference from Stephen King's THE STAND!

Hey 8:40 AM #1, WTH has Obama done for his country? He's most definitely a poster boy for liberalism---symbolism over substance every single time he opens his mouth!

The jokes are hilarious if you are a Republican. There are quite a few of them currently in prison so jail food humor is quite appropriate. Also, I wonder if McCain hired a lawyer when he got caught in the Keating Savings and Loan scandal in the 1980's?

McCain's past does not hold a light to the glorious Clintons and all their carnage through the years. Of course, all you liberal weanies are still mad at bad boy Bill for telling the truth.
