More McCain Gaffs And Lies: And You Thought Bush Was Bad?

John McCain is proving more embarrassing than Bush. And he's proving to be a bigger liar. After almost eight long years of Bush gaffs and lies (and the list is incredibly long), McCain apparently feels obliged to outdo him. Hard to believe, I know.

This latest one is vile. Not only is it vile because he is speaking about killing innocent Iranians (as though this country, by individual, has been wholly anti-U.S.), it is vile because not only is THAT wholly unacceptable in a Presidential candidate, he is actually allegedly "joking" about it. Since when is it acceptable to joke about killing people?

The hot-tempered McCain (we really don't want him anywhere NEAR a "red" phone let alone a red "button") certainly appears unstable. If what we see is a tempered version of what makes the man, we should all be running for cover.

McCain last Wednesday joked with reporters about sending Iranians cigarettes.

"That's a way of killing them," McCain told a journalist who asked him about reports that US exports, especially cigarettes, to Iran increased tenfold during the current administration of President George W Bush.

As others around him laughed uncomfortably and his wife Cindy poked him in the back, McCain quickly said: "I meant that as a joke ... as a person who hasn't had a cigarette in 28 years."

Early in his campaign, 71-year-old McCain also "joked" about "bombing Iran " to the tune of the Beach Boys' song, Barbara Ann.

Now, as for his lies, watch this:
