McCain Is Not Very Nice

Reportedly, John McCain told a Chelsea Clinton joke the other day. I hope he gets "suspended" like David Shuster. But he won't. These politicians really stick together, even when they go after each other's family.

McCain's joke:

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

There, I said it. I admit, it's funny. But it's also not very presidential, is it? One gets the feeling that if elected, McCain will be like that uncle you're embarrassed about when he comes over for holiday dinner and farts during the prayer and then laughs out loud about it and goes on to tell you a joke about the dyke, the clown, and the priest.

According to Salon, not many papers or news outlets are reporting on this. I wonder why? Is there a vast right wing conspiracy? Is the press biased towards the right wing?

I wonder...no I don't. Of course, the press is biased. Kudos to salon.com for writing about it.

You just can't joke like that when you are being considered for the top leadership position in the United States. As a matter of fact, you really cannot joke about anything. Well... maybe you can joke about Molvovians... na... can't joke about them either.
