Senator John McCain - alas, he's my senator - just tweeted that the Iranian president is a monkey. From Forbes
Regardless of whether the monkey did go into space, McCain took to Twitter today after learning of Ahmadinejad’s declaration and decided to compare him to the so called space monkey. “So Ahmadinejad wants to be first Iranian in space – wasn’t he just there last week?” McCain joked.He then linked to a yahoo story about the Iranians' claim to have sent a monkey into space.
This man just joined the Senate Foreign Relations committee!
Is he trying to start another war? A few thoughts over the fleur-de-kos.
I think he may be trying to start another war. He loves starting wars.
Such a tweet should get him called out.
Nearly every time he speaks, he makes me grateful that he lost the 2008 election. I'd be sorry for those in an alternate multiverse in which he won - except that I'm sure that in that alternate timeline, he blew up the world so it no longer exists.
My thanks to the person who gave me a dailykos subscription! How cool!
If you start having trouble opening comments, empty your cache. I was having trouble but now it's OK.
Tired of politics? Need to escape? Try my Greek mythology based novels, either the story of Oedipus from the point of view of Jocasta, or a trilogy about Niobe, whose children were murdered by the gods - or were they?
