John McCain Tweets Something Racist and Unfunny, Tells Everyone to 'Lighten Up'

Posted By on Tue, Feb 5, 2013 at 10:00 AM

John McCain, Arizona's resident Crusty Old Senator, apparently knows how Twitter works personally, and doesn't have an aide do it for him. How do we know this?


Honestly, he's got it out for Iran. Remember this gem?

Taking a second to pause here, is there anyone who believes he wouldn't have made a move against Iran had he won the presidency in 2008? Yeah, I didn't think so.

Anyway, feeling a push back against his tweet, McCain didn't stop there.


Here's the thing, Senator: People are more responsive to jokes when they're funny—as explained by Republican Arab-American Congressman Justin Amash.


Well done, Congressman. Way to stand up against a fool...but, uh. Good luck with the rest of the Republican leadership, who may not be too happy with you stepping up against one of the Grand Old Party's grand old hands.
