John McCain did something fantastic in South Carolina on Wednesday. He made a glib joke about bombing Iran. Video below. And he didn’t just say it — he sang “Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran” to the tune of a Beach Boys hit.
John McCain “Bomb Iran” (Video)
McCain will be universally condemned, of course, by those feigning to be shocked and concerned. The ninnies said the same thing about Reagan. Reagan famously threatened the Soviet Union during the Cold War by uttering into a microphone: “the bombing starts in five minutes.” Good for Ronald Reagan. Good for John McCain.
The joke isn’t particularly funny. That isn’t the point. What it does is hearken back to a time when America’s men celebrated their testosterone rather than sensitizing it in our new feminized culture. That’s not a bad thing at all.
