The comedic stylings of John McCain

Off the heels of John McCain's "joke" about bombing Iran yesterday, Mr. Straight Talk is now inviting those who criticized his "joke" to "get a life".

Which is understandable, since McCain himself is a fan of humor. In fact, let's look back at his response to John Kerry's botched joke back in October of 2006 (courtesy CNN):
"Senator Kerry owes an apology to the many thousands of Americans serving in Iraq, who answered their country's call because they are patriots and not because of any deficiencies in their education," McCain said in a statement.
U.S. troops "deserve our respect and deepest gratitude for their service," he added and said the notion that only those with poor educations serve in the Iraq "is an insult to every soldier serving in combat."

"Without them, we wouldn't live in a country where people securely possess all their God-given rights, including the right to express insensitive, ill-considered and uninformed remarks," McCain said.
