How Funny Is John McCain?

Posted by | July 17, 2008 16:03 | Filed under: Top Stories

The Politico refers to his humor as “sharp, unrehearsed, and way, way over the line.” McCain says he doesn’t recall telling this one, although it was reported by the Tucson Citizen during is 1986 Senate campaign.

“Did you hear the one about the woman who is attacked on the street by a gorilla, beaten senseless, raped repeatedly and left to die? When she finally regains consciousness and tries to speak, her doctor leans over to hear her sigh contently and to feebly ask, ‘Where is that marvelous ape?'”

McCain had to apologize for this 1998 ditty:

“Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly?” he asked guests at a Senate Republican fundraiser. “Because her father is Janet Reno.”

This one wasn’t a joke…just a Freudian slip?

…during his 1986 campaign, he referred to a retirement community called “Leisure World” as “Seizure World.”

 He recently referred to exporting cigarettes to Iran as “a way of killing ’em.”

And who can forget this golden oldie?
